Hi lovely ladies,
How are you all doing? I love winter afternoons, they are oh so perfect for shopping and enjoying warm sunny feel and cool breeze. One such afternoon, I headed towards a mall near our home and I crossed the Colorbar counter there, I went inside to check a few stuff when this new range of Colorbar Definer Lip Liner caught my attention. I purchased one in nude shade and today I am going to write about it here.
Here comes a perfect partner for your lipstick that keeps it in place for an all day look. This waterproof magic lip wand works as a fabulous lip filler which makes a proper matte base for your lips. The innovative refined formula follows and outlines the lip contour with an adjustable coverage and does not smudge.
The Colorbar Definer Lip Liner come in all quirky and vibrant shades of reds, pinks and oranges like Clear Red, Rosy Red, Berry Rose, Summer Pink, Just Coral, Sizzling Orange and Creamy Nude.
Rs. 550/- for 1.45 gm.
This pencil comes in a silver color box which has a round sticker on one side, in the color of the shade and name of the shade written on it. The pencil itself is black in color with details written on it with silver engraving. The pencil has a small colored part on one corner (which denotes the actual shade of the pencil) and has a cap with an in-built sharpener in it which again is secured by another cap.
006 Creamy Nude is a peachy nude shade.

Texture and Formula:
On application, this liner doesn’t tug or pull, that means the formula is really smooth. It never feels ultra dry and sets into a powdery matte finish. However, nowadays, in winters, when I face the problem of slightly chapped lips, I find that it highlights flaky chapped areas on lips and seeps in between the fine lines of my lips if I apply it all over my lips as a base.
My Take on Colorbar Definer Lip Liner – Creamy Nude:
This lip liner is a good choice for pairing with your peach lipsticks and it can enhance the staying power of your lipsticks. It does not smudge or bleed and is feather-proof. It glides easily on the lips without pulling and never feels overtly drying. However, nowadays, it doesn’t feel light or creamy either.
It is poor in pigmentation (unlike the other shades in this range), which means I have to swipe it more than once to get the desired colour; however, it is a buildable shade and doesn’t look cakey after layering. It stays on my lips for about 4-5 hours with little fading from middle and then it gradually fades evenly which is a good point. It is waterproof to some extent and there is minimal transfer post applying.
Pros of Colorbar Definer Lip Liner – Creamy Nude:
- Does not dry out the lips.
- Smudge proof, feather proof.
- Travel friendly and sturdy packaging ; comes with an inbuilt sharpener.
- Glides smoothly on the lips.
- Dries almost instantly to a soft, powdery, matte finish.
- Decent quantity.
- Soft, smooth texture.
- Long wearing.
- Does not tug or pull on lips.
Cons of Colorbar Definer Lip Liner – Creamy Nude:
- Accentuates dryness of the lips.
- Seeps in between fine lines.
- Poor on pigmentation.
If you were hoping to wear these alone, I wouldn’t exactly recommend it. When used by itself, it makes the lips look a bit parched and dull.
Do I Recommend Colorbar Definer Lip Liner – Creamy Nude?
Its pricey for a lip liner in my opinion, there are cheaper options available in the market.
