Hello Lovely Ladies,
Today, I am here with another shade from one of my favorite brands and range of lipsticks, yes it’s the velvet matte lipstick from Colorbar, and this time, I am checking out plum, magenta and fuchsia shades. Let’s move on to the review.
INR 299 for 4.2 gm.
For a rich lip color with a creamy shine, the Velvet Matte Lipstick, available in stunning shades infuses 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.
The lipstick comes in a rounded steel metallic body with a transparent cap, which shuts off with a click. You will find a sticker at the bottom with the shade name written on it. Overall, I found the packaging worth the price. It’s sturdy and travel friendly too.
My Take on Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick – Posh Plum:
Shade, Texture and Pigmentation: Posh Plum is a loud and intense shade of purple plum; it has some magenta undertones to it. It’s a rich shade, not suitable for everyday wear, but good enough for Indian wedding parties. Being a very rich shade of plum, it’s not suitable for every skin tone or age group, but it’ll be best suited for fair to medium skin complexions.
Most of the lipstick lovers are familiar with the texture of these amazing lipsticks. The texture is a little hard, but still smooth, glides easily and effortlessly on the lips. The finish of the lipstick is creamy matte, not powdery or drying on lips. They appear matte with a velvet smooth finish on lips. They are hydrating enough for normal lips, but do feel a little bit drying after 2-3 hours of application. The lipstick emphasizes dry and flaky lips. This lipstick is super duper pigmented, one swipe is enough to give a thick, opaque color on lips.
Staying Power: The lipstick stains a lot. That’s the stain which makes us think that the lipstick is long lasting. Actually, the creamy layer of the lipstick would disappear from the lips after 2.5 hours or so, that’s the time when we think the lipstick is feeling a bit dry or more matte on lips. It leaves a strong tint behind which kind of stays for 3 more hours. But whatever, I am happy that at the price, they managed to make such an amazing matte lipstick. The lipstick easily survives meals and doesn’t transfer to anything, but the stain will last up to the next day; it’s really hard to get rid of the stain.
Pros of Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick – Posh Plum:
- This is a rich, vibrant and nice shade of plum.

Cons of Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick – Posh Plum:
- This kind of shade is not suitable for every skin tone and all age groups; even I didn’t understand why I bought this (for experiment and review).
- It’s good to wear to parties.
- The stain that the lipstick leaves behind is very stubborn.
- Can be a bit drying.
