Before I start off the review, let me show you the new range by Colorbar known as Jelly and Shine Lip Gloss. I picked up all the 5 shades, thanks to my awesome bosses for the opportunity. I have attached the picture of the tubes and swatch of all the 5 shades side by side for you to decide your pick. Okay, so moving on with the review, I will start with the shade 001 Red Jelly. Sounds like yum…doesn’t it? Read on to know whether the product lives up to its name 😛
Rs. 675/- for 3.8 ml.
My Experience with Colorbar Jelly and Shine Lip Gloss – 001 Red Jelly:
Starting off with the packaging, Colorbar continues to keep the outer silver paper carton with all details about the product. The shade name and number are mentioned on a color-coded sticker on the outer carton. The tube is like the regular gloss tube by Colorbar, nothing fancy, just a transparent tube with the shade name, number and dates mentioned at the bottom, on a sticker.
The wand is a bit long with a sponge tip applicator. One dip does not really pick up enough product, so a thicker sponge would have been more ideal.
The texture is super glossy and more like a thick sticky syrup. Moreover, the pigmentation on the hand swatch is so light; imagine how it is on the lips. For my pigmented lips, I just could not show you the color on the lips; it just fails to show up. There is like no pigmentation on the lips. Even a tinted lip balm gives more color to the lips.
If you are super picky about matching your lip gloss with the lipstick shade, you can go ahead and buy this. Also, if you have baby pink lips, this might show up as a hint of color on the lips. In the lip swatch, I have applied Elizabeth Arden Red Door Red and topped it with the red jelly gloss.
The staying power is quite okay, ranging from 3-4 hours, after which the lips remain moisturized, but the hint of color vanishes. Honestly, I am not very impressed with the pigmentation particularly.
Now, if you are looking for something this sheer and glossy, go ahead and pick your shade.

Would I Repurchase/Recommend Colorbar 001 Red Jelly Jelly and Shine Lip Gloss?
Personally speaking, I would never repurchase this shade, but if you like super sheer glosses; or you are way too picky about matching the gloss with the lip color, go ahead and buy it.
