I was trying so hard to get this shade of lipstick from Colorbar, but it was not available in any shops. Finally I ordered it from MedPlusBeauty.com. It reached within 2 days. As I expected, I fell in love with this shade.
The lipstick comes in a silver and transparent tube which has the top portion transparent and displays the shade well.
Shade name is printed on the bottom side.
The shade is a peach red which is really a bright one. It’s definitely not a daily wear one or good for day wear.
Price is the best part of this lipstick – 250 INR for 4.2g.
The staying power is higher compared to Maybelline lipsticks. But there is no staining.Pigmentation is good. One swipe gives good color on the lips.
The only problem I felt with this lipstick is that it’s a bit hard and dry though it gives good color in single swipe. Lip balm is must before applying this lipstick, else it doesn’t apply evenly.
The pros and cons finally.
- Good shade for a peach red color
- Pigmentation is high
- Staying power is higher comparitively
- Can become uneven and make lips dry without lip balm
- Though Colorbar Velvet Matte lipsticks are easily available in shops and online stores, this particular shade is difficult to find
Will I purchase again?
Of course,if I don’t get this in a creamy texture.
