Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick Stay True Review

Hi girls,

If you have checked my posts on “Glancing Stare” and “Raise Ur Glass” lipsticks, you would know that I have picked up many shades from the Colorbar Velvet Matte lipstick range. This shade, “Stay True,” is a plum-pink color that caught my attention. I would like to say that these new velvet matte lipsticks are nothing extraordinary, but for the vast color selection, you can check them out.

My Experience with Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick Stay True:

The packaging is still the same as the old “Velvet Matte” range, only the bullet shape has changed. I don’t find this lipstick matte, but it’s like a matte stain. I can safely say that this lipstick is not at all creamy.

I think you will have to layer it up to achieve the desired color intensity. “Stay True” is a light plum-pink color and is on the blue-toned spectrum, and I love such plum lipsticks. I like it since it just settles into the lips like a stain and does not bleed or transfer. You will have to drag it a bit initially for it to smoothen up, but when you layer, it comes out as a nice plum-pink lipstick.

I don’t find it moisturising at all. I think women with dry lips will not enjoy wearing it though it lasts very long, 4-5 hours, but it does stain eventually.

This one stains a very bright hot pink color and it is very similar to the previous velvet matte lipsticks that I have reviewed. These lipsticks should be renamed as matte stains rather than labelling them as lipsticks.

  • Might seem to drag initially.

Would I Recommend/Repurchase Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick Stay True?
This color is so beautiful but for the staining part, it is a big no from my side.
