You must have heard me cribbing about how the formula on these Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipsticks has changed for the worst. It was me who used to recommend these lipsticks highly long ago when they had an amazing creamy formula and the packing was simple; the square transparent one, but this one with the new round packing and of course bad and staining formula that feels hard with the price hike is something I really won’t like to recommend.

Today ladies, I will show you the horrid stain I faced after removing the lipstick after 15 minutes, my lips had turned hot pink, like a very bad pink, and I thought I will never be able to remove it in this lifetime,sorry to have read that the new colorbar matte touch lipsticks also stain read it here! Now I mean I have thought very very hard as to why a shade of lippy should stain red, be it any shade, I am sure there is some chemical they have added a little too much, and it turns pink or just reacts with my lips and my god, I have to run for my life then, God forbid some one was to see those pink lips, it would be criminal.

This shade is a warm red, leaning towards maroon, but it is a nice one, no issues with it, it looks very matte and is okay smooth to apply as well, no issues there either! The packaging is fine too, I wasnt fond of the earlier square one either. But this is fine. The cost, why have they hiked it so much considering these are such bad lipsticks?

I have just two more shades from this to review after which I will really stay away from these lipsticks, unfortunately the new ones too from some other ranges stain a bit but these ones are God forsaken!How I miss those older colorbar lippies, which you have seen here and here .

I have been using Colorbar since 2005, yes more or less when the brand was launched and when the “Velvet Matte” lipsticks were around 75 rupees, then it hiked to Rs. 95, then to Rs. 225, and now I think Rs. 250 at many places! I don’t know what made them make the formula so staining and no matter what the shade is, the lipstick stains a cheap hot pink stain! I will show it to you ahead in the review.

The removal is a real pain as the stain just won’t go away. I need to hold the cotton with an oil-based remover on it for 30 seconds and then repeat this thrice! Not to forget it dries out the lips totally!

I have bought some 10 of these new formula Colorbar Velvet Matte lipsticks and all of them stain. I have bought them from all over, Bangalore, Chennai, even online, but all of them stain.  After some time, say two hours, the lipstick turns into a pinkish shade mixed with red; that is I am talking about the pink stain it leaves behind. As you have your meals and go about the day, the lipstick fades off and leaves a very bright, cheap pink stain on the lips. This looks horrid on my tired face by the end of the day and needs to be removed with much effort.

I have never ever used a lipstick that stains so much, and you all, by now know that I have used and tried way more lipsticks than you have!

aaaaouuucchh! Sorry ladies really, but I had to save you from this stain please bear with the pic  *cry*

In an effort to improvise, Colorbar has hiked the price of this lipstick to Rs. 250, but unfortunately, there is no improvisation on the formula. The earlier formula which was fantastic has vanished and I ask them what made them manufacture such staining lipsticks instead of a better velvet matte. Its not just one shade that I am talking about, more than 10 of my shades stain and I obviously bought them in bulk unfortunately. I will be reviewing all the shades I have soon. May be I am more hurt because I used to love the older “Velvet Matte” for the past 6 years or so. They definitely have better lipsticks in the “Soft Touch” range, which I recommend, but as for this one, there are numerous red lipsticks, which you can buy if you ignore this one!

IMBB Rating:

Sorry! I’m sitting indoors at the moment with the stain on my lips, askin myself why I had bought this lipstick.

  5. aah breathtaking lotd sacchiii.. *woot* *whistle* bt lip stain is also equally horrifying.. *scared* *nababana*

  6. Hi, Neha…
    In the second pic, your lips not only look stained but dry also. I think that proves that either the formulation of the lippie is drying, OR you have tried really hard to remove the stain, and all the tugging has got you this dryness… VERY BAD COLORBAR…. *hunterwali*

    You know what at first, I did not read the post, but quickly scanned your post. And then I saw two “LOTDs”. I thoght (with confusion), that for the first time you have done review of two lippies in one post… this shows that the residual stain in itself looked like a lippie shade… *shock*

    *secret* I and my sis call this worst shade as… “STAIN IN VAIN” *announce* *announce*

    *spank* *pan* *hunterwali* *headbang* *smack* *nonono* *nonono*
