How are you all?
I told you I have bought two shades from colorbar crème touch range. One of it I have already reviewed and this is the second one. This is the first mauve I have bought as I always thought mauves will not suit me much. I was proved right or wrong- read on to find more about it.

My experience with Colorbar Creme Touch Lipstick – Oriental Mauve:
It has the same silver packaging which is nice in itself and sturdy too. It has a click lock mechanism which makes it completely safe to carry in your purse. I told you I love colorbar crème touch range because of the texture and beautiful shades they offer. The texture is a creamy one. It glides on your lips and keep them hydrated all the time. It is a bonus for the one having dry lips like me. Though, creamy lipsticks do not generally last that long but I love to use them in daily routine. Also, despite these being creamy, do not melt too much. They stay pretty much intact in my cupboard too unlike some of the elle 18 ones or lip balms which have to be kept in the fridge only.
Coming to the shade- it is pinky mauve. It is a kind of mauve which is not on the verge of being purple if you know what I mean. I was very sceptical about buying this but I still thought I should try. It suits me or not depends on the days actually. On good skin days it suits me and I can wear it as it is. I like to swipe it just once or twice to keep the color light. On days, when I have dull skin, I think it washes me out.
In those times I use it on top of some other pink based lipstick to give it a different look. The color is buildable but if you swipe it more than 3 times, it would bleed. Also, I do not like to build this up because I like it being light and that way it suits me. I cannot comment whether it will suit all skin tones or not. You may try it for yourself. The staying power- I do not expect much staying power from creamy lipsticks. This one fairly goes for 3-4 hours without meals or drinks. If you sip, the color would transfer as well as lighten. If you have your meals, then it just fades away. Only slight color remains in the corner of your lips. Well, I do not mind touch ups with these as I love enjoying the texture.
These lipsticks have mild sweet smell. I would have liked it better if it was sans smell, but any how I can ignore that. So overall, it is a fairly good product. Decide for yourself whether or not you want this shade.
