I am back with another Colorbar Matte Velvet lipstick review and this time its “Bronx.” I got this lipstick about a year back when I had just started using makeup and was going through nudes and browns phase. Colorbar Velvet Matte range were the first ones I tried out and now there is no looking back. One of the most affordable range of lipsticks available in the Indian market.
As with all Colorbar Matte lipsticks, Bronx also comes in standard round tube packaging with name of the shade and color printed at the bottom. I know a lot of people find the packaging to be boring, but it totally works for me. Its simple and to the point, now common, what can you expect in 220 bucks?
The shade is a gorgeous bronze color with fine gold shimmer. It is a shade which you would want to pair with Indian outfits. Perfect for a simple get-together or engagement party. The golden shimmer is not at all over the top, but very very subtle. The shade looks fabulous during day time as gold shimmer brings lovely sheen to the lips. For night time, I would want a bit more bold color. I have even wore this lipstick to the office 🙂
The shade is pretty opaque and has decent pigmentation. I would say two swipes are enough to get that beautiful bronzey color on your lips. The staying power is decent and stays on me for 3 to 4 hours. The golden shimmer in the lipstick fades away after a couple of hours and left behind is hint of brown. The texture is smooth , creamy and glides on the lips. Even though the name says its matte, I really have never felt any dryness from these. In fact, it feels quite moisturizing for the first hour. It feels extremely lightweight, similar to applying a lip balm. Oh and this one does not even stain!
The only problem I feel is the low staying power and this color may not suit everyone. I feel it suits fair to medium skin tones. Even though I love the shade, I am not a big fan of bronze shades, hence I feel this lipstick gets neglected most of the times.
Overall, it is a pretty shade, but not a must-have for me, nothing personal, just not a big fan of bronze shades. If you love bronze color, then you must definitely try this shade, its a pretty unique color and I haven’t seen such shades in any other range.
Hope this review and swatches were helpful, until tomorrow, take care and stay beautiful!
