Hello pretty ladies,
My review for today is going to be a gloss from the brand Colorbar. I have just used their bright and flashy nail enamels and I was really impressed with them. I had never tried anything from the cosmetics section and this gloss too wasn’t my pick. My friend bought this lip gloss for me. I have never tried any lipsticks or lip glosses in orange colour, so this one was my first try. I would have actually never picked up such a shade as I am always scared whether such colours would suit my skin tone or not. So, let’s find out whether I liked this lip gloss from Colorbar or not.
Rs. 435 for 3.8 ml.
Colorbar True Gloss collection is here to expunge your woes of having to touch up your lip gloss every now and then. It is highly pigmented and gives your lips a divine shine. Its ultra-moisturizing formula will keep your lips soft and smooth for hours together. True Gloss is a glossy, non-sticky, pigmented, opaque coverage, moisturizing, long lasting lip color. It doesn’t get patchy or uneven and feels very comfortable, light and hydrating on the lips and stays for a LONG time without getting sticky/drying or uneven.
My Take on Colorbar True Gloss Lip Gloss – Orange Sunset:
This particular range of Colorbar has very bright shades, especially the oranges and pinks. I like them when I see them in the gloss bottles but when I try them on my hand, I get really scared whether they would suit me or not. But as this was a gift from my friend, I boosted up my confidence and went further to use it. The gloss comes in a normal transparent cylindrical bottle. The shades are clearly visible from the bottle itself, but of course you need to try them before buying. The cap is tight, so no problem of leakage at all and very handy to carry it in your bag as well. I have never used any orange shade before this one, so this was my first time.
I applied the gloss first on my hand and it was a very bright pure orange colour. Then, finally I applied it on my lips, I found the shade to be very bright. So, I just swiped my fingers over my lips to even out the colour and also to reduce the colour a bit. Obviously blotting would have helped, but the colour would be uneven, so I did that with my fingers. After spreading the gloss evenly, the shade looked a decent orange one and did not look too overpowering and I liked the way the gloss looked, it suited my skin quite well, but one swipe does not last more than an hour.
So, next time when I went out, I applied like 2-3 swipes, and this time the shade looked very bold and I am so sure that I was not able to carry it well.
I liked it with just one swipe, even though it did not stay for a long time. These 2-3 swipes stayed for like 3 hours and then the colour started to fade a lot, but when I applied the gloss with the wand, it started settling into fine lines. Those fine lines were looking darker than my lips.
So, the fingers could evenly settle the colour but the wand could not. It was a good gloss but I would like to purchase a lip balm kind of a thing instead of buying this gloss because it was too bright. This gloss will not suit Indian skin tones well.
Pros of Colorbar True Gloss Lip Gloss – Orange Sunset:
- The quantity will last for a very long time.
- Many different shades are available in this range to select from.
- Easily available everywhere.

Cons of Colorbar True Gloss Lip Gloss – Orange Sunset:

- Settles into fine lines.
- Does not spread out evenly.
Would I Repurchase/Do I Recommend Colorbar True Gloss Lip Gloss – Orange Sunset?
I liked the gloss, but if I had to repurchase I will try the other shades as this did not suit me and it will take a long time to get over and don’t know whether to recommend or not, have a look at the swatches and if you think you can carry this shade well, then you can go ahead and buy it.
