My Experience with Colorbar Romance Matte Touch Lipstick:-
The outer silver paper carton contains all detailed information on the lipstick. There is a color coded sticker at one end of the box and at the bottom of the tube as well. Though it is color coded, the shade range cannot be determined from the shade of the sticker. Nevertheless, you have to remember the shade from the name. The bullet is angled like typical Colorbar lipsticks and the initial uses are very neat with the sharp edged bullet. The cap shuts with click; hence the lipstick is travel friendly.
The texture of the shade is super smooth and glides on lips like butter. Though it is categorized as matte, the application is super creamy. After a while the color settles to a matte moist lip color. The shade is so pigmented that one swipe covers my pigmented lips. If you want full-on color, you have to swipe twice.
The shade is my kind of shade. There was a time when I used to wear only these kinds of shades; thanks to IMBB, the story has changed. This shade is a pink-brown with mauve undertones. You can call this the matte brother of Colorbar Sultry Pink. A very sophisticated shade for the office meeting days; brightening up the face, yet staying muted.
The staying power varies from 3-4 hours without lip liner or any base. After fading there is a pink stain on the lips as is expected from this range of Colorbar. I am not very fond of such stained lips, so that comes as a con to me. For those who prefer to have some color left on their lips, even after fading, this is a good range. With a lip liner I have worn this shade up to 5 hours with minimal fading.
Pros of Colorbar Romance Matte Touch Lipstick –

• Gorgeous shade.
Cons of Colorbar Romance Matte Touch Lipstick –
• Stains lips (might be pro for some).
• Packaging could be better in terms of color coded sticker.
