Today I am going to review Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in Pure Innocence. Colorbar Velvet Matte range had created quite a rage with huge range of shades and priced quite reasonably. Their shade range is exclusive with reds, maroons, browns, pinks, plums etc, you name it and they’ve got it! I have quite a few from this range and like them best for office wear due to their high staying power.
The shade I am reviewing today is called Pure Innocence and is gorgeous brown shade with a tiny bit of pink. It shows of more brown on my lips. Packaging is same boring as all colorbar velvet matte lipsticks with shade color showing through the bottom. The texture is bit hard and not exactly creamy like nyx ones but it does not feel dry either. On lips it feels semi matte if that makes any sense. Its not glossy and nor it feels matte. The color is pretty and perfect for every office wear. Pigmentation is good and one swipe gives you lots of color. If you apply it more than one swipe than it’ll stain your lips. Staying power is amazing and probably the best part of about these lipsticks apart from their reasonable pricing 🙂 It stays on 4 to 5 hours easily with in between meals! The bolder and brighter the color the better staying power. This one definitely leaves behind a pinkish brown stain on lips which eventually fades after 6 to 7 hours. So if you are not fond of lipsticks leaving behind tint of color please do avoid this range
I think this color will suit fair to medium skin tones better than dusky skin tones. I feel it may make dusky skin tones look a bit older in age. This is just my opinion as whenever I apply this lipstick I suddenly feel and look a bit more matured if that makes any sense 😛 Medium skin tones will rock this shade! The fragrance is standard like all velvet matte range, it has sweet smell which is not irritating or over empowering at all and vanishes in few minutes after application
- Huge range of shades to choose from – 45 shades
- Packaging is sturdy with color showing through the bottom, easier to find in your vanity
- Extremely reasonably priced so one can experiment with colors without burning a hole in pocket
- Fantastic pigmentation – one swipe is more than enough to get that color on lips
- Beautiful brown shade with hint of pink – perfect for everyday wear
- Even though the name says matte it does not dry out my lips
- Staying power is amazing, it stays for 5+ hours with eating in between hence perfect for office
- It’ll leave behind a stain on lips so if you do not like a tint on lips this is not for you
- Extreme dry lips may have to use a lip balm underneath
- You definitely need a makeup remover to remove the lip stains
Rating:– 3.8 out of 5
Do I recommend:- If you are on lookout for long staying lipsticks within reasonable price range and if you are ok with a bit of lip stain left behind do give it a try. I personally do like them a lot and they have some really good shades to choose from..definitely worth a try atleast once.
Hope this review was helpful, until tomorrow take care and stay beautiful!

Wow nice shade..!
Has any1 ordered from the colorbar website? I had ordered once and didnt recieve the product inspite of making full payment and numerous reminders throught mail.
I have never ordered from colorbar website and honestly I dont think their online ordering system is working correctly as often their new launches are not updated on their website..try other e-purchasing sites..these lippies are often on discounts
awww parita missed seeing your lovely fotd. 🙁 but it is a very pretty color. it reminds me of some shade i can’t seem to recall at the moment. I guess i’d update it once i remember. 🙂

Oooh, I have this one, and it is beautiful…very Deepika Padukone from ‘Cocktail’…I’m dusky and it suits me very well, especially when I have medium coverage (no uneven pigmentation) on my face.
totally agree with you..now that I think about it..deepika always has such shade on her! wow!! thanks!
