Since the time Rati shared those 6 new launches from Colorbar, I have been eyeing them, but then again, I know how much the new formula stains and it’s a real pain to remove it off. But for this one, I thought this would be a lighter shade and hence would leave back no stain and something like the bare lipstick, from this range (mine was older). This would be a great shade to wear without any worries of being over the top, but I think I was a little wrong. This shade stains as well, ha ha, can’t believe it really.
The shade is a total love for me. It’s a soft peachy-pink that I think would suit skin tones with a little pinker tones to them. This would not be right for skin which may have yellow undertones at all.
As for me, this looks good only when I am wearing some concealer and blush, specially a blush which then matches up with this shade. otherwise this shade looks a little stark on me, as in a strange peachy pink.
This is very close to Bare I feel personally for what it does to the face. You can wear it with smokey eyes or you can wear it to office as well and it goes on very well with black eye liners and pencils I feel.
The texture is so much not like the older one. Its a little waxy for me, thick and hard, and doesn’t leave a creamy layer on the lips, but in fact, I need to rub it on. This speaks in terms of a lot of creamier lipsticks I have which are way better in comparison to this lipstick, which is much celebrated for the wrong reasons.
The shade stays on me for three hours easily and then it starts to turn hot pink, like all the other Colorbar Velvet Matte lipsticks. I don’t know how to explain this, but you have to take my word for the fact that I have used and tried way more lipsticks and this one particularly stains a hot pink.
Though I agree the stain is lighter than the other shades like Hearts and Tarts, etc., but still I did not expect such a light shade to stain as well. It might work for you, but for me, it has to be better in terms of texture and staying power and it has to do away with the staining formula to be on my favourite list again.
I recommend this colour as it is a nice, decent office wear as well as something to team up smokey eyes. It stays on a good three hours and then starts to stain a hot pink, which no other lipstick does to me. You try and make a call on this range.
3/5 because I loved the colour too much.
