Continuing with the “Kiss Proof” range from Colorbar, here is shade 002, named “Royal Pink.” Continue reading the article to know more on the shade.
Rs. 900/- for 6.5 ml.
My Experience with Colorbar 002 Royal Pink Kiss Proof Lip Stain:
Packaging: 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 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.
Texture: The lip stain applies like a liquid lipstick initially. It takes about 10-15 seconds to settle into a 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 to the lips on application. For normal lips, the texture would feel comfortable for initial 2 hours; after that you might need a lip balm.
Shade: It is a milky pink color, a very tricky shade. It will suit fair to very fair skin tones. There are no shimmers in the shade, which would have added glam to the otherwise whitish pink. It washes me out, so this is not a personal favorite, but fair skin tones would look pretty in this shade for office or college.
Staying Power: Being a stain, it stays on for LONG! It peels a bit at the centre of the lower lip after a full meal, but the shade does 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 a comfortable feel on the lips.
Overall, this is a tricky shade to carry. If you are very fair, then it might suit you, otherwise I am not recommending this shade to olive to warmer skin toned beauties.
