Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick: Shy Cherry Review

I am very excited to write this review now.  After ages, I have found a Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick that does not stain a hot pink! I could not believe my eyes when I saw what this lipstick delivered and I am happily recommending this lipstick that made my week.

Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick Shy Cherry Review

For the first time, I am not cribbing about the new formula of these Colorbar velvet matte lipsticks. I picked this one up from Pune and I picked up three shades randomly. I know I say these stain and dry, but still, when I swatch these lipsticks, the colours are so tempting and the pigmentation is through the roof that its hard to resist and then I always think I will review them if not use them.

The lipstick comes as a surprise to me.  I was eyeing this lipstick since Rati shared the six new shades, but when I realized these stain inevitably, I gave it up. I bought Thrilling Pink and a couple of others, but when I swatched this one, I was floored. This is the exact color I can wear for the next one decade because I absolutely love carroty pinky reds.

I don’t know how to define this shade, it’s a reddish carrot pink color. The texture is hard but when you swipe it, you get a very deep pigmented thick stroke of color. That is what surprises me a lot. The lipstick feel hard and sturdy in the tube but when you glide it across, it feels quite smooth as in not delicate and melting smooth, but firm yet smooth :p I hope you get what I mean.

The pigmentation is amazing on this one, very deep, thick and creamy. It is not exactly matte, but it has a moisture sheen to it.  I won’t say it is not drying.  I do feel after some time, my lips tend to get dry with Colorbar Velvet Matte’s new formula.

The best part is that this lipstick won’t stain like the others from Colorbar Velvet Matte range.  The lipstick is so red and deep, but still, it won’t leave the horrid hot pink stain and hence I am happy at this discovery, maybe Colorbar has woken up to change the staining formula.

The staying power is very good too. Without meals, it will last for 4 hours easily on me. I do need a lip liner with this and to tone it down, one can use a lip brush too. I have applied the lipstick with a Lakme lip brush in the swatch.  The only downside of this one is that maybe after some time it stays on you lips, you may find it drying and irritating.

Last Word:

Great color for 250 rupees, deep pigmented texture, won’t stain and lasts long. Can be a little dry after some time though. I am recommending this velvet matte lipstick to everyone  after a long time.
