I went to Colorbar to buy the velvet matte lipstick called Bare but the SA told me that Colorbar has changed the formula and the names of all the matte lipstick and that Bare All is the same as Bare but just different name and more moisturizing. So I bought it because she was going on and on about how good the new formula is and how moisturizing it is now and it won’t make my lips as dry as the other mattes did.
500 (crazy right!)
My take on Colorbar Matte Touch Lipstick – Bare All:
So I’m not sure if the Matte Touch is the same has the Velvet Matte. I can’t find any product description about the Matte Touch on the Colorbar site or any other sites. So I have no info on them. So let me begin my huge Rant. Bear with me!
First off, the color on the bullet looks like a nice dark brown. The color on the swatch looks like a nice medium brown. The color on the lips looks like a nice dark peachy color with a bit of brown thrown in it. Oh and let’s not forget the beautiful pink stain I get one hour later on my lips after the lipstick fades away.
*sign, shake my head in disbelief* no it’s not beautiful or nice. This lipstick is a total rip off. If I’m going in to Colorbar to buy a nude matte lipstick, I expect to get a nude Matte lipstick. Not a peachy, creamy, cheap quality lipstick that has no idea if it’s pink or brown or matte or creamy.
The color of this lipstick is almost like Bare. Almost! But it’s not exactly the same, so ill just be reviewing it as some random lipstick that I bought. The lipstick itself is very confused of what it wants to be. It’s not sure if it wants to be brown or peachy. It’s giving mixed signals. I hate mixed signals. That’s why I avoid guys who give such signals. The peachy undertones would look nice on people with fairer skin tones. But I don’t think it will show up so well on dusky skin tones.
Okay, so let’s leave the color of this lipstick aside. If I’m going to be paying 500 on a Colorbar lipstick I expect it to last at least a couple hours. Ten minutes after the application of this lipstick, whatever bit of brown there is starts to disappear, and after an hour the lipstick itself disappears leaving behind a pink stain of my lips. It does not survive meals or snacking. Actually it starts fading after drinking a glass of water.
So, forgetting about the longevity of this lipstick. Isn’t this supposed to be a matte lipstick? I understand that the company has changed the formula so the matte lipsticks aren’t as drying anymore (the SA said, not me), but still there is a huge difference between a moisturizing matte lipstick and a crème lipstick. And this lipstick is clearly nowhere near matte. It has a creamy texture, it has a creamy finish and it feels super creamy when you rub your lips together.
I had not expected something like this from a brand like Colorbar. Hopefully they get there baggage straightened out soon.
Pros of Colorbar Matte Touch Lipstick – Bare All:
Cons of Colorbar Matte Touch Lipstick – Bare All :
- Misleading name – it’s not matte at all.
- Won’t show up on dusky skin tones.
- Leaves behind a stain.
IMBB Rating: 1/5 (only because I feel sorry for it)

Are you crazy. No.

Haha, not even in my wildest dream.
So this is why, my friends, you should avoid things that give you mixed signals, they never perform well.*cough cough*
