Caftan

ColourPop Caftan Glossy Lip Stain ($8.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark red with warm undertones and a high-shine, glossy finish.

  • Medium, somewhat buildable coverage
  • Water-like initially, then slightly thicker with minimal tackiness
  • Spread somewhat evenly but give it a few seconds to thicken, then even out, slight settling into lip liknes
  • Longer-wearing (five to six hours, only lightly staining), hydrating

  • Pat McGrath Blood 2 (P, $30.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar).

Formula Overview

$8.00/0.21 oz. – $38.10 Per Ounce

It’s supposed to have the “long-lasting powers of a lip stain” with the “shine of a gloss” paired with “medium to buildable coverage” that is “non-drying.” The initial texture was almost watery, overly spreadable (and the applicator often picked up more product than necessary, so take care during application) but dried down to a more satiny shine that was less glossy and more like a satin lipstick with some translucency.

The initial shine wore off within two hours, so it looked like a true satin finish–this was true of doing nothing or just taking a drink of a glass as it wasn’t transfer-resistant. The stain did not power through a meal and tended to leave a very strong ring around the edges of my lips as it wore away so quickly while eating. Left to its own devices, most shades wore around six hours with a faint stain left behind.

It had medium, buildable coverage but quickly built to more semi-opaque coverage without an official second layer (just going back and forth to get an even layer of product). A couple of shades were truer to medium and others were more semi-opaque from the first layer.

There didn’t seem to be any added fragrance nor taste while worn.
