Colorbar Take Me As I Am Lip Color Review

Like most of you reading this, I too love lipsticks and I am never satisfied with the huge collection of lipsticks I stock.  I wouldn’t say I have found my best shade, but yes, this one is the best texture you can treat your beautiful lips to.

Bought it for Rs. 556 after discount. I think the MRP is Rs. 599.

So, while browsing through the shop, the lipstick attracted me by its shape, it looked like a marker.  So, it’s definitely easy to glide on to your lips. Like I said, the texture is the best thing about this product. Very creamy, not glossy, not matte, just perfect! I bought Dare Bare first and Mischievous Wine later.

Let’s see what the product claims and if it all stands true:

C.B (Colorbar) says: Extremely soft and creamy with excellent colour pay–off

I say: Yes, very soft and creamy, but staying power is horrible.  Even the dark shades don’t leave behind a good stain.

C.B says: High dose of moisturizing and skin conditioning benefits.

I say: Yes, very moisturizing. Even after the colour comes off, lips are smooth.

I like the “Dare Bare” shade more, a very natural shade. Best for daily wear or occasions where we have to show we haven’t applied lipstick, but we have to apply something as we cannot go bare lips. Mischievous Wine is nice, somewhere towards maroon, looks lovely on a black dress.


My only problem with this product is the less staying power. Do not expect this to be on your lips after a proper meal, but then I guess some girls have “Lucky lips like Sneha Ullal from Lucky Movie’ :P, so it might just stay 😀
