Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick Naked Pink- Review,Swatches

Hi Beauties,

By now you must have known about the famous Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipsticks. The whole Indian blogging world is going gaga over it. This is my first lipstick from colorbar. I got it after reading reviews fromVanity no apologies. I loved the swatch on her blog and knew I had to get it. I want to tell one thing here. I am not a fan of matte lipsticks. But this is not completely matte and it is not drying too.

Note: All pictures are taken in natural light :)





Love the packaging and that small transperant space to show the color outside the tube. This is very useful for  finding the shade when you have a huge lot of lipsticks. The cap closes firmly and so I think it is safe to take during travel. I have not taken it with me out yet.



The color is a gorgeous brownish pink with mauve undertones. My skin tone is on the darker side and mauve lippies look good on me. My natural lip color is uneven. My upper lips are dark, while my lower lips are light. This lippie has decent pigmentation and helps to cover the lips fully. Since my lips are very dry I defintely need a lip balm all the time. So I cant comment whether it works without a lip balm.

My only con about the lipstick is it leaves a pink stain that doesn't fade that easily. But I am ok with it because it does not dry out my lips.



 I prefer to use this lightly. Because I find it a little dark when applied with full intensity.

Here are the swatches:


Applied lightly

Applied with full intensity

This particular shade will show up differently on different skin tones. Please check it at the store before you get it. In my opinion it is a gorgeous color that will work on all skin tones.

Price: Rs. 225 for 4.2 g. Got it for Rs.203 from stylecraze.com

Will I repurchase: Absolutely. I am eyeing on bare, demure, sultry pink and many other shades.

Recommendation: Yes, I am sure you will find at least one shade that you will fall in love from this range. And for the price every make up addict should own a handful :P

So do you like this color? what other shades do you suggest ?

Leave in your comments :)

Luv,
Indgal
