It is ColorBar’s Ultimate 8-Hour Stay Lipstick in the shade ‘Burn It Down’..and here’s the lowdown on it – The Colorbar Ultimate 8 Hour Stay Lipstick Burn it Down Review.

In Detail Colorbar Ultimate 8 Hour Stay Lipstick Burn it Down Review and My Experience
The shade is a beautiful brick red with brown undertones. It gives a polished look to the whole makeup. The texture is like a dream. It is lightweight and yet pigmented. One swipe covers all pigmentation and you would not even need to line your lips. The finish is moist matte and within half an hour, it would turn completely matte. Its non-drying, lightweight and does not have the powdery uncomfortable finish, you don’t even need a lip balm underneath.
The colour pops out so you can go easy with rest of your makeup. Lots of kajal and Colorbar Ultimate 8 Hrs Stay Lipstick in Burn It Down will glam you up in seconds – even when you are looking out for a day time wear. The shade is great for all skin tones.
The staying power is something that needs to be appreciated. It survived a full course meal with slight fading from the middle portion of the lower lip. And even after the whole day, it left a gorgeous stain on my lips.
The Colorbar Ultimate 8 Hrs Stay Lipstick also has a faint vanilla fragrance but it dissipates in a few seconds. It does settle into fine lines and highlight dry patches so you better exfoliate your lips before applying this lipstick.
How I Use it
I have normal lips, I did not require a lip balm before or after the application. People with dry lips should go for a lip balm before application. I usually keep the rest of the makeup simple as it will highlight your lips beautifully.
The lipstick had good colour pay off. The shade was semi opaque in a single swipe (I use a single swipe for day wear and two swipes for evening). I also felt that Burn It Down – the shis shade being reviewed added a glow to my complexion, asides from giving a fuller finish to my lips.
