Looking for a perfect mauve color was like a mission for me a few months back. I bought so many mauve coloured lipsticks which looked good when the SA swatched them and then looked completely different in actual daylight. Now, I make sure to check the lipstick shade in actual daylight before buying them. Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in Forever Mauve was one of those colours that I bought but looked completely different when I wore it during the day time.
Rs. 275 for 4.2 gm.
For a rich lip colour with a creamy shine, the Velvet Matte Lipstick, available in stunning shades infuse 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.
My Experience with Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in Forever Mauve:
The lipstick comes in a sturdy plastic casing with a steel finish. The name of the shade is mentioned at the bottom of the case. The cap is transparent with “Colorbar USA” imprinted on it. Since the top is transparent one can easily see the colour of the lipstick. The lipstick has a sweet caramel fragrance which vanishes on application.
The “Forever Mauve” shade is an extremely dark mauve shade. It contains very fine silver glitter in it which makes it look like a frosted shade. The lipstick is pretty dry and does not glide all that easily on the lips. It settles into the fine lines and makes the lips appear even more dry. The pigmentation is excellent though. Only one swipe is required for full coverage. A top coat of a lip gloss is definitely required for this lipstick. The lipstick does not feather at all for the complete 4 hours that it stays on the lips.
The lasting time is really good for this lipstick. It lasts a good 4-5 hours. After that it leaves behind a stain which lasts another couple of hours. The lipstick is transferable but not as much as other brands.
Pros of Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in Forever Mauve:
- Very good pigmentation.
- Lasting power of the lipstick is also good which is about 4-5 hours.
- Very affordable.
- I do like the fragrance of the lipstick.
- It gives a glittery matte look.
- The lipstick does not feather at all.
- Availability is not an issue.
Cons of Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in Forever Mauve:
- The shade does not suit me at all. It makes me look very vampish – a real disaster!
- Contains fine glitter which makes it look even worse.
- Extremely dry shade.
- Settles in to the fine lip lines.
- Does not make the lips soft and supple as claimed by the company.
- Does not contain any SPF.
