Hey all the lovely ladies,
I hope you girls are having a good time 🙂 There was a time when I was a total “nudes and brown” (I mean going by lipstick shades) kind of a person, but I have no idea as to how I have changed to a “pink and coral” loving person. However, today I am reviewing a very different shade. I basically wanted a shade to go with the ethnic wear. So, I choose Colorbar and Grape Wine because owning a few of them have made me fall in love with these lipsticks.
About Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipsticks:
For a rich lip colour with a creamy shine, the Velvet Matte Lipstick, available in the 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 in India, it has super softening agents that gives the lips a soft and supple appearance while keeping 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. 250 for 4.2 gm.
My Take on Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in Grape Wine:
This lipstick comes in a steel body that is beautifully packed in a see-through plastic cover. As seen with other Velvet Matte lipsticks from Colorbar, the lipstick has a colored bottom making it easier to locate in a stash of lipsticks. The shade is deep plum with pink undertones. The beautiful shade reminds me of dark grapes (I am in love with the black grapes and the name of shade is attractive enough). I feel the shade will look good on Indian skin tones and will turn out better for ethnic wear.
Although the range says it’s a matte lipstick, it is not drying at all. The lipstick is quite smooth and creamy and glides on easily. The pigmentation of the lipstick is also very good and only one swipe is enough to cover pigmented lips as well.
The colour stays well for good 5-6 hours after the application. This range from Colorbar is extremely famous for the staying power and this lipstick is no exception. Even when the lip colour fades away, it leaves a beautiful tint, more towards pink side.
I am totally in love with this range from Colorbar and plan to invest in a few more lip colours from this range.
Pros of Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in Grape Wine:
- Beautiful shade for Indian skin tones.

- Pocket friendly.

- Long staying power.
Cons of Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in Grape Wine:
- Accentuates fine lines.
Would I Buy Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in Grape Wine Again?
