We are almost done with the “Kiss Proof Lip Stain” range and here’s the review of last but one in the shade “Haute Latte 007.” Bond as it may sound, but this is again a very wearable shade. It can be worn daily for formal office look. A good option for those who like long-wear colors for office. Read on to know more on the particular shade.
Rs. 900/- for 6.5 ml.
My Experience with Colorbar 007 Haute Latte Kiss Proof Lip Stain:
Packaging: The outer silver paper carton is similar to other lipsticks from Colorbar cosmetics. 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 in 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 to 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 will feel comfortable for the initial 2 hours; after that you might need a lip balm.
Shade: This is one neutral in the whole range of Kiss Proof lip stains. It gives a very polished and sophisticated look with just one swipe. The shade has a hint of mauv-ish undertone which gives the lift to the shade; otherwise it would have been a boring dull brown. As my love for neutrals remain, I am quite liking the shade.
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 the comfortable feel on the lips.
Overall, this is not a must-have shade for me, but those who want long stay lipsticks for formal office wear, you can definitely check this out. Being a nude/neutral lover, I quite like the shade.
