Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick – Obsessed Orange

Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick Obsessed Orange

I finally managed to get my hands on the “Obsessed Orange” shade and I’m super stoked to review it for you ladies. Rati already swatched this shade along with the other new ones here.

Since we all are pretty familiar with Colorbar’s Velvet Matte Lipstick packaging, I’m going to skip that. Also, I absolutely love the packaging.

Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick Obsessed Orange

Obsessed Orange is a true orange shade; not coral, just plain bright orange. In the tube, it is super bright but when applied on the lips, its actually quite flattering and I’m guessing almost every skin tone can pull this off which is a plus point since not everybody can pull off coral shades.

Obsessed Orange

The texture is very smooth and doesn’t dry fast during application. I like how this shade isn’t very creamy because extremely creamy lipsticks look horrible when they settle down in fine lines, especially the bright shade ones. This shade is not chalky and doesn’t dry my lips at all. It doesn’t settle into fine lines. That being said, it isn’t the most moisturizing lipstick. You’ll need a bit of lip balm prior to application. The lipstick stays on semi-matte and for a good 5 hours.

Obsessed Orange

If you are looking for the perfect bright orange lipstick, this has got to be the one. Try it out if you are up for bright shades and you’ll be hooked on it!

Nice review Preiti…..I loved this shade a lot and wanted to buy it when i went to buy Colobar lipsticks for my MOM….but i am doubtful if it will look nice on my wheatish complexion….also you done it so nicely…which lip liner you used :-)

Reply

jomol May 29, 2012 at 10:28 am

Aarthi…..I think it would look good on wheatish complexion, though it may not suit dusky ones. A few months ago, I had seen this girl at the airport who had worn such a lovely orange lipstick and she was of wheatish complexion and she completely rocked it…..:)

Preiti May 29, 2012 at 1:14 pm

I agree with Jomol here, Aarti.

Why don’t you try the shade out? It looks very bright in the tube, but its actually quiet warm when applied on the lips.

I used a nude lip liner and went over it with the orange lipstick. :)

Aditi May 29, 2012 at 10:38 am

I had tried tis on long back..but dint think I can carry it off..so dint buy..its a very different color!

Reply

Preiti May 29, 2012 at 1:18 pm

It is quiet a bold shade.. If it’s too bright for your liking you can always tone it down by mixing it with another shade!

Abinaya May 29, 2012 at 11:00 am

I can’t carry such bright colors! :/
I’m somewhere near wheatish to dusky and it looks BRIGHT on me :/

Preiti May 29, 2012 at 1:15 pm

Try mixing it with a slight brown! :)
