I went to the Lifestyle stores for my Karwachauth shopping and I was quite surprised to see some new shades under the Colorbar Velvet Matte range. Needless to say, I picked up a lot of them, and I would be reviewing all of them in the near future. I want to start with a pink shade, which is a classic cool-toned pink, “Glancing Stare.” Read on to find if the lipstick formulation of Velvet Matte range has changed or not, all details below 🙂
Get the velvety matte lips you always dreamt of with Colorbar’s Velvet Matte Lipstick. It keeps the lips moist but with a matte effect and stays on for long hours. The smooth and creamy colorbar matte lipstick is enriched with Vitamin E to protect and care for your lips. It stays for 8 hours without budging, feathering or bleeding. Just a stroke of Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick is enough as it is highly pigmented. Now, Care for your lips with style! Makes your lips look full and lush instantly.
It is so intensely pigmented that one swipe is enough. It’s got a smooth matte formula that sets within seconds of application. Available in varied vibrant and subtle shades.
My Experience with Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick Glancing Stare:
The packaging is exactly the same as the previous ones, I wish they could have added some colourful name labels to it. The bullet shape now matches the “Matte Touch” lipsticks. The lipstick feels the same too as the previous ones.
I do not find them velvety matte at all. In fact, I found this lipstick quite gritty during the first usage. It is slightly glossy, but somehow, it just converts into a lip stain in a bright pink in some time. This has always been a problem with Colorbar lipsticks, they stain a bright pink, no matter what shade you have used.
As a stain, it lasts on me for around 5 hours, but it barely feels like a lipstick. It does not even transfer since it just works like a stain. It feels gritty to apply and then it just feels like an ordinary lipstick. Nothing has changed with them and I am not happy about it at all.
Pros of Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick Glancing Stare:
- Bright pink.
- Cool color for neutral skin tones.
- Nice packaging and bullet shape.
- Priced affordably.
- Lasts for hours, just like a stain.
Cons of Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick Glancing Stare:
- Nothing has changed in this collection.
- Leaves a bright pink stain soon after application.
- Feels like a stain, not like a lipstick.
- Feels gritty on application initially.
- You might have to drag it a bit initially.
Would I Repurchase Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick Glancing Stare?
I have bought a few new shades from this range, so hoping for the best. Otherwise, I am not recommending this to anyone, especially those who hate the pink stain it deposits (if you have experienced that particular pink stain it deposits).
