Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick Blush Review

This was again a part of the haul I did from Bangalore Central and bought all possible Colorbar Velvet Mattes that I wouldn’t get in Chennai.  So, I went ahead and without any thoughts about my past horrid staining Colorbar lipsticks, which I gave away (Demure, Creme Cup, High Tea, etc., all reviewed), but still, I wanted to give them another chance since I loved the old creamy opaque formula so much, but I was wrong.  The new lipsticks stain, are dry, hard, not so good in any way.  You will agree to this only if you have used the older packing in square, otherwise I don’t need any one to agree on it 🙂

The lipstick is a true pinkish maroon, something I think most mums would wear, at least mine would love the shade.  In fact, I want to give this to her with a warning of course about how they turn hot pink and stain. Anyway, the lipstick is a maroon, in case someone likes maroon and Colorbar Velvet Matte lipsticks.

The texture is hard and dry, unlike the earlier ones which were creamy, thick, and opaque. This one is just oh-so-regular lipstick that it hardly excites me. When you swipe it on, a good amount of pigmentation shows up and can cover pigmented lips, but let me tell you, this lipstick does not glide on well or in a smooth way.  The lipstick drags and leaves uneven color like you can see in my swatch. I left the lip swatch the way it is, so that you can see how unevenly it applies.

The lipstick starts to feel dry on me as soon as I apply it.  When I purse my lips, I can feel the dryness seeping,  instead of feeling soft and moisturised lips. I have used way too many lipsticks to know this feeling very well.

I like the color as a stain.  If you want to use this as a stain, it is just a perfect deep pink. I used it as a stain and the color really brightened the face up.  So, as far as that goes, I like the color. Apart from that, I don’t like anything at all about this lipstick apart from the brand’s name.

The lipstick dries out and satins terribly on me. Also, it changes color very soon and applies unevenly. I know even Colorbar knows what blunder they have done changing the older formula which used to come in the square packaging earlier and I owned 50 of those!!

Last Word:

Not recommended by me, but if you still like Colorbar, try the “Soft Touch” range any day.

  2. The first time I bought some shade from this range (I didn’t even bother to remember the name of shade) I made myself promise NEVER EVER to go near them again! It looks soooo dry and flaky in the picture 🙁
