The other day I went to the mall here and visited the Colorbar store. Thanks to Insta-stories, I already knew that Colorbar had launched these lip tints. So, I came out with a beautiful lip tint in my hand and a broad smile. Since I asked the SA to show me the new launch, a couple of more females also started trying these and some of them even bought these tints. I think the brand kind of owes me. Haha! Anyway, jokes apart, lip tints or stains are becoming popular these days but none of them could entice me as much as this one. Let’s find out why I picked up Colorbar Kiss Me Again Lip Tint All Yours.
Price: INR 550 (4.2 gms)
Get creative with color! Tint your lips with a glaze of honeyed lip color that will make you irresistible! This creamy and richly pigmented aqueous solution is paraben, alcohol, phenoxyethanol and fragrance free and effortlessly glides over your lips to give you a silky natural tint whilst its formula, leaves you with a lingering sweet taste ideal for the ‘perfect’ kiss.
How to Use:
• Moisturize your lips using lip balm to make them soft and lush.
• Choose a concealer that matches the shade of your lips and dab a minute amount onto your lips. Use a round, voluminous flat brush to blend the concealer against your lips.
• Next, apply compact powder on your lips. This provides an even base for the color of the lip tint to pop!
• Fill in your lips with ‘Kiss Me Again’ lip tint.
My Experience with Colorbar Kiss Me Again Lip Tint All Yours:
As always, I’ll talk about packaging first. Let me just say, I was actually getting bored of the old silver packaging from the brand. They were very innovative with their ‘Feel The Rain’ collection, though. Kudos, but regular was getting boring. I was surprised to see this one in a reddish packaging.
The packaging compelled me to doubt myself and I cross-checked with the SA if it was a limited edition range. Gladly, it isn’t. ☺ It comes in a sturdy, good quality cardboard box; inside this box is a beautiful, elixir-like bottle of the tint. It’s a thick plastic bottle with a black screw cap. The cap has red lips marks on it which looks super cute.
The liquid looks very dark wine like from the outside. But, when you put it against a tube light, you can see it’s quite reddish. The wand is interesting here. The actual applicator is flat, solid (no hole) and curved. It’s best to apply from the outer side of the curve for full opacity or coverage. For lip line and corners, other sides of the wand can be used.
The texture is quite thin. If you see my hand swatch, you’ll notice some strokes and that is a point of worry. When it dries down and the actual tint is left behind, it does not show any streaks, though. The application is even better on the lips. As it dries down it feels like nothing at all on the skin and stays put for good 4-5 hours.
Let me mention here, it is a light tint, not a strong stain. It does not survive heavy greasy meals at all. The shade ‘All Yours’ is wine/pink based shade. Another one is orange based, which I am sure will look good on most skin tones. I personally am not a fan of oranges. There is no fragrance but a sweet taste; every time your tongue touches the product you will feel a sweet taste – nothing bothersome (unless you are a sweet hater).
Overall, it’s a very lightweight product and I love it. It gives a freshness to the lips, just the way blush gives to the cheeks. I don’t do any prep before the application and apply it directly and it’s just beautiful.
