Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in Peach Crush

Hello lovely ladies..

What lip colors are you digging into these days?
There was a time when I used to swear by candy pink and subtle lip colors but these days I am loving peaches and corals, hot pinks and reds. I am more into bright and bold colors and my search for a beautiful Fuschia color isn’t over as yet.. Ladies any suggestions???

Okay so today I am going to review a lovely peachy coral orange lipstick called ” Peach Crush ” by Colorbar..

Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick Peach Crush

A little about Colorbat Velvet Matte Lipsticks :
For a rich lip colour with a creamy shine, the Velvett Matte Lipstick, available in stunning shades infuse the lips with vibrancy. Its unique 2-in-1 formulation gives the lips a creamy, yet matte finish. A one of a kind product in India, it has super softening agents that give the lips a soft and supple appearance while keep them nourished with Vitamin E. Staying on up to 5 hours on application, the Velvett Matte Lipstick can be further accentuated with lip gloss and lip liner.

Price : Rs.250 for 4.2gms

My take on Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in Peach Crush :

Packaging :
The lipstick comes in metallic steel case with a transparent cap. The cap it looks a bit fragile to me. ( I have a fear that I may break it :P )
packaging

Texture :
This one is not as dry as matte lipsticks usually are. infact it is quite creamy and smooth. Unless you have extremely dry chapped lips it won’t really accentuate the fine lines on your lips. It does settle a bit in the fine lines after couple of hours but it doesn’t look that bad either. So I’d say exfoliate and moisturize lips well before applying matte lip colors.

Color :
Highly pigmented bright lip color. It is more towards coral orange than peach (just a hint of peach I’d say ) but nevertheless it is a gorgeous color. It doesn’t look as bright in the lipstick case as it does on the lips.
It brightens up my face instantly. :))


the swatch on the website is a little misleading

Staying Power :

I’d say close to 6 hours with lip balm underneath and even if you have a light meal in between it will leave a tint. I like lipsticks that don’t make my lips go bare after having meals.They do transfer easily.
It stays on longer if you don’t apply lip balm underneath but since my lips have gone dry since winter most lipsticks settle in the fine lines of my lips and I prefer a lip balm.
Also I feel that since matte lipsticks tend to dry out your lips a lip balm is a must.

Here are the lip swatches ….

I don’t know why it looks a tone lighter in the lip swatches than on the hand

Rating :
4.5 /5 ( – 0.5 for it settles in the fine lines after a couple of hours )

Would I buy it again :
Yes definitely I will. I am in love with this color.

Do I Recommend this :
Totally… At this price it’s a gorgeous pick which you ladies shouldn’t miss. :))
