Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipsticks Review & Swatches


For a rich lip colour with a creamy shine, the Velvett Matte Lipstick, available in 45 stunning shades infuse the lips with vibrancy. Its unique 2-in-1 formulation gives the lips a creamy, yet matte finish. A one of a kind product in India, it has super softening agents that give the lips a soft and supple appearance while keep them nourished with Vitamin E. Staying on up to 5 hours on application, the Velvett Matte Lipstick can be further accentuated with lip gloss and lip liner.

Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipsticks



These are the 2 shades I have:
  •  Hot Hot Hot ~ Chilly red
  • Addictive Magenta ~ Red purple
Hot Hot Hot

Addictive Magenta

Likes:
♥  Highly pigmented & goes on very smoothly
♥ They feel soft & velvety
♥  Don't dry out my lips at all, although they're matte
♥ They last. Maybe up to the claimed 5 hours minus the creamy texture.
♥ The lipsticks don't wear off completely leaving your lips looking pale, but leave some color like lip tints do.
♥ Available in 45 shades! 
♥  Inexpensive at Rs.225 a pop
♥ Cute silver-cum-plastic glass tubes with individual colors at the bottom. Much more classy-looking than NYX Round Lipsticks

Dislikes:
- They are mildly scented. I know the scent, but I can't remember what it is (which drives me crazy!). I think the fact that I can't put a name to the scent bothers me more than the scent itself. But I assure you, it's not something to worry about.
- Hard to remove. You'll need more than a tissue to get the colors completely off your lips.

My favorite is Hot Hot Hot. I think it's one of the best red lipsticks I own.
I totally recommend the Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipsticks. I think they are some of the best inexpensive lipsticks in India.

Buy again?  Absolutely!

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
