Colorbar Soft Touch Lipstick Rougemarie Review, Swatch And LOTD:

This is my first post in IMBB, actually first ever post on a makeup product in the blogging world for that matter. This makes me very excited! :) I stumbled upon IMBB 1.5 years ago when I was looking for a review on a makeup product. In those times I had no idea that there existed an extensive world of blogging related to make up stuff and beauty products in the virtual world of web!! Since then I started visiting IMBB regularly whenever I needed reviews on any beauty or makeup products and otherwise also . :) And today I admit that most of the makeup I have in my stash is on the recommendation of the members of IMBB (the stash, which is by the way increasing exponentially :P) and I’m thankful to everyone here in IMBB for that :)

Today I am going to review Colorbar Soft Touch lipstick in shade Rougemarie. Please read on to know my experience.

My Experience with Colorbar Soft Touch Lipstick:

I had heard so many good things about this range from Colorbar and wanted to give it a try. I ordered this lipstick from an online shopping site. Once I received the parcel, I saw that the actual color is much darker than how it looked in the online swatch. Nevertheless it is a pretty color. Colorbar Soft Touch lipsticks come in metallic silver packaging and it looks classy. The color is a very deep maroon with reddish undertones. The color is suited for evening wear.

For morning wear I personally feel its bit dark. As per the claim the lipstick does apply very smooth and the lips feel very soft after the application. Also the lipstick is moisturizing and keeps the lips from chapping. No need to apply lip balm underneath the lipstick. So it does the work of both lip balm and lipstick. This lipstick is perfect for winters. I’m not so sure about the anti-aging property of the product as the company claims. Any anti-aging product should be used regularly and daily for the effects to show up. I don’t intend to use this particular shade on daily basis, so I won’t be getting any anti-aging benefit, if it has any. I applied this lipstick a lot during the festival season that passed by. It stayed on my lips easily for 5 hours without touch ups. It fades out evenly after that and does leave behind subtle stain.

Swatches:

Pros:
1. The lipstick is very moisturizing
2. Highly pigmented
3. Stays up to 5 hours
4. Does not bleed or settle in fine lines
5. One swipe is enough to get the exact color on the lips
6. Provides full coverage
7. Comes off easily with the baby oil
8. Suits all skin tones

Cons:
1. Since I got it from the online shopping site I did not get the color that I wanted.
2. Transfers easily

LOTD:

Rating: 4/5

Will I recommend it:

It is definitely a must try range from Colorbar. The lipstick is of really good quality for the price. I would suggest you girls to swatch the colors in the shop before buying. So that you would not end up with wrong shade like me. If you are looking for a moisturising and pigmented lipstick which is suited for parties and festive occasions then you must try this lipstick.
