My Experience with Colorbar 001 Hollywood Kiss Proof Lip Stain Review:
The outer silver paper carton is similar to other lipsticks from Colorbar. It has all the required information and claims regarding the product. On one end, there is a color coded sticker with the shade name and number. The tube is one of its kind. The body and cap is silver with two see through windows. The applicator is long and sturdy at the same time. It picks up enough product to cover the lips at one go. You need not dig in again and again to pick up the product. The base of the tube has the shade name, number and dates of manufacturing and expiry. I would say it is smart, unique and functional at the same time.
The lip stain applies like a liquid lipstick initially. It takes about 10-15 seconds to settle to perfect matte stain on the lips. It is so lightweight that you tend to forget that you have anything applied on your lips. It is super matte and clings on to the lips on application. For normal lips, the texture will feel comfortable for initial 2 hours; after that you might need a lip balm.
It is a gorgeous bold red, a shade that will suit most skin tones! It does not have any yellow or blue undertones to this particular red. If you want one matte red in your collection, you must have a look at this shade. There are no shimmers or gloss in the shade.
Being a stain, it stays on for LONG! It might peel a bit at the centre of the lower lip after a full meal, but the shade will not completely disappear from the lips. A bit of touch up post-meal might be required. You do not require a lip liner as this covers the lips in just one swipe. With a lip liner, it might feel a bit heavy on the lips. You would need a lip balm after 2-3 hours to get the comfortable feel on the lips.
Overall, this is a gorgeous super matte red and can be sported well in summers and monsoons. The slight glitch is the drying feel after 2-3 hours. Other than that, there are no complaints. In fact, am glad to see a variety of stain shades in a drugstore brand.

• Nice packaging
• Pretty shade
• Super matte
• Long lasting
• No parabens
• Good quantity of product
Cons of Colorbar 001 Hollywood Kiss Proof Lip Stain:

Would I Repurchase/Recommend Colorbar 001 Hollywood Kiss Proof Lip Stain?
I might not be able to finish this up as I do not wear red as often, but I would definitely recommend this pure matte red to all those love lightweight, matte, red lip colors.
