My Take on Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick – Iced Tea:

Colorbar is always special to me, as the first lipstick I officially owned was from this brand.  Colorbar Velvet Matte range has 45 different shades to choose from. However, the store near my place stocks up to 20 shades only.  The shade I am using currently is called Iced Tea.  This looks like a very light brown shade with a slightest pink undertone. A great shade for daily wear (to work or college) as it a matte lipstick, there are no shimmers in it. I always end up buying this as this is my all-time favorite nude shade (this is the only lip shade that I bought 4 times so far).


The packaging is very classy; it comes in a steel packaging with a transparent cap.  The end is also transparent and you can easily identify the color. The texture is very creamy and glides well. It feels very light on the lips and moisturizing indeed. However, the staying power is not great. It only lasts upto 2-3 hours.  Overall, a decent buy for Rs. 225/-.

Let me quickly list out the pros and cons of this lipstick.

Pros of Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick – Iced Tea:

• Amazing 45 shades to choose your favorite color from.
• Cute yet classy packaging.
• My best nude shade ever.  I have been buying this one again and again.
• The price 😛 (we usually have 10% discount on Colorbar products at the mall ) 😀
• Quite moisturizing.
• No weird smell, just a nice faint vanilla smell.
• It is very smooth due to the creamy formula it has and it glides evenly on the lip.
• Though it is creamy, it does not bleed.

Cons of Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick – Iced Tea:

• Might be drying after a hour or two, a lip balm can usually take care of that.
• Staying power (only 2-3 hours), not a con though, but keeping their 5-hour claim in mind.
• No ingredient list (not even on their website).

Apart from that, I have no complaints against this and this is how it looks on me.

      1. Thanks for the reply Jyotsana! :thanks:
        But I am not quite sure about trying in store, the colors which look beautiful on my hand, sometimes look very awkward when worn on lips. And I am not comfortable trying the store testers on my lips… I know I am sounding too fussy… but can’t help.. 😐
        That’s why I look here in IMBB for skintone suggestions before zeroing in on any particular shade.
