I think I am pretty late on getting on the bandwagon of the Colorbar Deep Matte Lip Creme range. But when the SA showed me the shades, I had to get at least one, as I loved the texture and finish of these lip colors. So today’s review is on one neutral shade from the range, named “Deep Earth, 004.”
Rs. 675/- for 6 ml.
My Experience with Colorbar Deep Matte Lip Crème – 004 Deep Earth:
Firstly the packaging, a lot has already been said, but still, I would like to add my two penny – very thoughtful of the Colorbar people that they have mentioned the manufacturing date and expiry date at the base of the tube along with the shade name and number. The applicator sponge is bigger than the regular ones, but being tapered, it can reach to the inner corners as well.
The texture is uber smooth and does not bleed or smudge at all. There is no slippery feel to the lip crème and I must say that it is indeed a lip crème; not a gloss, not a lip color. Coming to the matte effect of the lip crème, it would not show up as perfect matte in the first go, it takes a bit of time to settle and show true matte effect. Now that it is named crème, it definitely adds moisture to the lips, but if you like a perfect pout, exfoliation is certainly recommended.
The lip crème does not settle in fine lines, thus giving a fuller pout, which is again a pro for me. Regarding the staying power, I would not say, it stays as it is for 8 hours, but it definitely does not vanish completely. After meals, a bit of touch up would be necessary.
Regarding the shade, the name might be a bit of mislead, I thought it might be a bit more on the browner side, but this is a mild milky peach with beige undertones. No doubt it is a beautiful shade and would complement a lot of skin tones – ideal for those who like n*des and neutrals for everyday use, good for both college and formal office goers.
The peachy tone gives a pretty summery effect to the look once paired with a flawless face and bit of kohl and mascara. Though it is slightly on the expensive side, I would still give this a thumbs up due to the texture, the packaging and the shade range; good job Colorbar…once again!
