Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in 34BR SUMMER RAIN

Hey everyone,


I hope everyone is doing good. Finally its the weekend. Today I shall review a Velvet Matte  lipstick from Colorbar in the shade SUMMER RAIN. I have had this lipstick for a while and thought would review this today.



Ingredients: Nothing mentioned... Not even on their website :/

Price: I had got it for 220 bucks which increased to 250 and now when i checked Colorbar's website it says Rs. 275/-  :/  for 4.2g



What Colorbar says about the lipstick :
For a rich lip colour with a creamy shine, the Velvet Matte Lipstick, available in stunning shades 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 appearence 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.



The lipstick comes in silver body case with a transparent cap which stays shut and doesn't come off that easily,hence it is easy to carry it with you in your purse. The lipstick name and number is mentioned on the bottom of the tube. Also the  color of the lipstick is visible below, hence it is easier to locate which shade you are looking for if you have a huge collection of lipsticks.



The lipstick is a nice peachy brown with golden shimmer to it.It is a little bit on the coppery side but still very wearable. The shimmer is visible on the lips but I did not find it over the top or gritty. Due to the golden sheen it emits, it looks a bit metallic on the lips. The lipstick goes on smooth and then settles onto the lips into a semi matte finish. It is smooth but may be drying later as it is a velvet matte lipstick. If you have chapped lips or even otherwise you have to exfoliate your lips before using this lipstick. It does not go outside the lips and comfortably lasts for upto 4 hours as claimed without any meal in between. There is no weird smell to the lipstick.


Likes:
Easily available, even online.
Nice packaging.
Does not stain the lips.
Affordable (considering other brands price)
Fades evenly.

Dislikes:
Not completely  moisturizing because of its matte texture.
Accentuates fine lines on the lips when dried.

Rating: 4/5

My final say: I have really used this lipstick quite a lot. It is a nice day time shade with golden sheen to it. I recommend this to all. I may not repurchase it as I have a long list of Velvett Matte Lipsticks on my wish list... Lol :P


I hope my review was helpful to all those reading it. Would love to read your comments.. 

Love,






Disclaimer: The lipstick has been purchased with my own money and my opinions are honest like always. FYI: The spelling Velvet is taken from the Colorbar's website.
