I am super excited to write this review as I got time to write after so many days. I have just started working, so was searching for some nude shades that I can wear to office. I was not a lipstick person until few months ago, primarily because I had no idea which shade would suit me. I would choose lipsticks based on how they looked in the swatch under the mall lighting, but after coming back home, the color would look so different. So, I was little sceptical about this one as well. I actually went to purchase FACES Ultimate Pro Lipsticks, but ended up buying this one. 😛
There are around 19 shades in this range to choose from. Let’s read the review and find out if I got what I wanted from it or not!
Smooth and creamy waterproof formulation that gives a long lasting color pay-off. It contains vitamin E that nourishes and revitalizes lips.

My Experience with Colorbar Innocently Brown Full Finish Long Wear Lipstick:
Colorbar Full Finish Long Wear Lipsticks are one of the best matte finish long wear lipsticks available in the market. The lipstick comes in a slender pretty tube and the bullet is slim. It has a sleek silver casing. Overall, the packaging is not that great. But, there is a sticker with shade name and number printed on it, which makes it very convenient to locate this lipstick.
It is a perfect matte nude/brown shade. But, this particular shade is not for everyone, especially Indian skin tones. I have warm undertone and this shade washes out my complexion! The consistency of this lipstick is very thick and the color shows up with just one swipe. Even on lips, it goes pretty thick. I have slightly pigmented lips and just one swipe of this lipstick is enough to cover up the pigmentation.
As far as pigmentation is concerned, it is excellent. Also, it has a special non-drying formula. It doesn’t settle into the fine lines of the lips either. Despite the fact that it transfers a bit, it lasts pretty long on the lips. It stays 5-6 hours without meals. Therefore, this lipstick is true to claim of being long lasting.
I really like the fact that it is shimmer free as it makes it more appropriate for office wear. It doesn’t have any weird smell, like other lipsticks. People with very dry lips may have to apply a lip balm underneath. I don’t have dry lips, so I don’t have any such issues with it.

• This particular shade would not flatter all skin tones.
Would I Repurchase/Recommend Colorbar Innocently Brown Full Finish Long Wear Lipstick?
I recommend this lipstick to all the matte lovers, but people with very dry lips can skip it. As I said earlier, these lipstick are perfect matte lipstick, but one needs to choose the shade wisely, keeping in mind their skin tone.
