10 Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick Swatches and Description

Most of you know that “I used to be” a “Colorbar Velvet Matte” lipstick fan.  That was the time when I hadn’t found “Maybelline Moisture Extreme” and when Colorbar had a square packaging and not the round ones and the lipstick formula was way different than what it used to be. It was soft and smooth and not staining at all. Now, I hate the new Colorbar lipstick so much that I had a hard time dealing with the five I have which I don’t use any more and have sworn never to get any more “Velvet Matte” because they stain, they stain pink and they stain bad!

But for my ex-love, I thought I would share the gorgeous lipstick shades and swatches I used to own. Please pardon me as I did not want to click the deformed, old, and half-used lipsticks and leave a bad taste and hence I took swatches only.  Hope this helps many of you for online shopping and for picking your favourite shade in every color family, be it brown, purple, mauve or pink. Maybe you will still like the new formula by Colorbar.

The ten shades are from left to right:

  • Pink n me.
  • Love that rust.
  • Rum raisin.
  • Berry fizz.
  • Pure innocence.
  • Temptation.
  • Iced tea.
  • Plumberry.
  • Smokey rose.
  • Candy.

Description for each shade so you know which one is matte, frosted, and shimmery.

Pink N Me:

Pink N Me is a frosted bubblegum pink for me and I don’t wear these type of shades at all as they really make me look sallow. People who wear pink and frosty ones will love.  There is no shimmer, no glitter, but only frost.

Love That Rust:

This one is exactly like “Boundless Bronze” in L’Oreal Endless Lipstick.  This shade is a pure shimmery rust, not day wear, but very Indian and very party and wedding type.

Rum Raisin:

This one is a crème lipstick, which has no shimmer, no frost. This one falls flat and is mainly matte and is a mix of mauve and maroon. This is a pretty bridal shade.

Berry Fizz:

This one is a blue-based purple and very deep and pigmented.  If you like purples, this can lift your face up. Good for pink skin tones, not yellow tones at all.  This is absolutely matte.

Pure Innocence:

Brown with no shimmer or frost. It falls matte and is a brown lover’s dream brown.


This one has been my most favourite purple lipstick for years now and I really love how it makes me look brighter and my teeth whiter. Its creamy matte with no shimmer and no frost.

Iced Tea:

It’s a matte deep brown . I avoid such shades on most days.


Creamy matte plum brown shade.  It would make for a deep matte lip for day, so best used with a lip brush and then dabbed off with a tissue.

Smokey Rose:

This one washes me out, but is a pretty Barbie pink that I mix and match this one.  It is creamy with a little glazy finish. There is no shimmer and no frost.


I used to love this shade to death. It’s a pretty brown plus pink and love how creamy it goes. There is no shimmer and no frost.

Last Word:

These lipsticks were really my first love and sadly they have changed so much that I had to move on. Most of them have reached expiry and have been used up half (phenomenal consumption for me :p ) time to bid adieu !
