Today, I am here with the review of Colorbar Velvet Matte lipstick in the shade “Addictive Magenta.” Finally, I have got a chance to review a lipstick from the velvet matte range. I wanted to cover this range earlier, but almost all the shades I liked had been covered. Finally, I chose the shade “Addictive Magenta.” Read on more details about this shade.
For a rich lip color with a creamy shine, the Velvet Matte Lipstick, available in stunning shades infuses the lips with vibrancy. Its unique 2-in-1 formulation gives the lips a creamy, yet matte finish. A one of a kind product in India, it has super softening agents that give the lips a soft and supple appearance while keep them nourished with Vitamin E. Staying on up to 5 hours on application, the Velvet Matte Lipstick can be further accentuated with lip gloss and lip liner.
Rs. 299 for 4.2 gm.
For the price, I found the packaging to be really attractive and pretty good. It comes in a steel metallic body and a transparent cap, which helps in shade identification. The cap closes with a click and doesn’t come off often.
My Take on Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick- Addictive Magenta:
Shade: The shade “Addictive Magenta” is a fuchsia/purplish red shade with pink undertones to it, we usually call it “rani pink.” The shade is not a loud shade of magenta; it doesn’t have blue undertones to it, so almost all skin tones can carry this kind of shade and it will enhance the complexion; a perfect bridal wear shade. Though it’s not a perfect everyday wear shade, especially for office, but it can be worn during day and night time for informal outings and parties.
Texture and Pigmentation: The velvet matte lipstick is a matte lipstick in true terms, but still creamy and gives a velvety kind of feeling on lips. The finish of this lipstick is truly matte; hence it emphasizes chapped and flaky lips, it’s better to prep your lips by exfoliating. The lipstick doesn’t lack moisturization, but after some time, it starts to feel more dry and matte on lips. For dry lips, it would be better to top it up with a gloss or lip balm. But you need not to apply anything if you have normal lips.
The pigmentation of the lipstick is good, it’s awesome; a single swipe gives full color on the lips. One swipe gives full intensity color, normally what 2-3 swipes would give. It gives an even and opaque coverage on pigmented lips in one swipe, and covers imperfections of lips nicely.
Staying Power: The lipstick stays on me for 5-6 hours easily with light snacking, and after that, the creamy sheen starts fading off and leaves behind a strong tint, which kind of stays with you forever, which I prefer personally. This lipstick doesn’t leave your lips bare in one go, but it’s a pain to remove the stain. Actually, I would sat it’s tough to remove the lipstick also, you will need a strong lip makeup remover for that.

Cons of Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick- Addictive Magenta:
