I have reviewed two shades from Colorbar’s Kissproof Lipstick range – “Wild Peach” and “The Vintage.” After pinks, it is now time for a beautiful red that’s so apt our Indian skin tones. I am in love with this color and the texture of this lipstick called “Be Reddy.” I feel the price of this lipstick is totally justified.
Revolutionary unique No-Transfer Lip stain formula glides on flawlessly and delivers impressively long-lasting, velvety color that will not transfer and stay all day long. The weightlessness of the formula will provide you with all-day comfort – wear lip makeup and a flawless look.
My Experience with Colorbar Kissproof Lipstick Be Reddy:
The color is gorgeous, it is a pinky maroon-based red, and so bold in one go. I love how it sets and becomes so matte when on the lips. I love how it looks and brightens my skin tone. I wear NC 37 Studiofix Fluid in MAC and this lipstick is just the perfect red for me. I can see some maroon pink tones to it and so I think deeper skin tones will love it. On very pale skin, this might be too bright and can be worn as a stain.
“Be Reddy” reminds me of the long-wear lipsticks from Colorbar since they have a similar tube packaging. They have a tiny amount of lipstick, but trust me, it is a potent one. The lipstick goes on like butter, so smooth and watery and once you give it 15 seconds, it settles into a transfer proof matte. Yes, this turns into a 95% smudge-proof, kiss-proof and shower-proof lipstick once you wait for it to settle.
The lipstick is so pigmented – one coat is enough, just wait for it to set. If you think it is filling between lip lines, then use another coat while smiling, so it fills the lip lines well. I think it is very matte, but for me, it is comfortable since I love mattes. If you have very dry lips, this might seem to bother you slightly. Once set, this just does not smudge, it is kiss proof and shower proof. You might need an oil-based remover for this. It will last you 6 plus hours easily.
The lipstick bullet comes off at the base, the fixture inside is not strong, so there are high chances that it can drop if you twist it up fully. Also, sometimes it does not retract back completely. It is not a big issue but once you are spending this much on a lipstick, technical faults is the last thing expected.
