In Detail Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick 58 BR Bare Review
I am pretty sure a lot of us have tried this range of lipsticks in the past. If you are some one who loves matte finish lipsticks with good pigmentation, you’re sure to fall in love with this.
It comes in this pretty classic packaging. Basically transparent plastic packaging with a silver coloured shell. The bottom has a label mentioning the shade. The surrounding transparent shows the lipstick inside. This makes it pretty easy to pick up when you have a lot of lipsticks placed upside down in your stash.
Formula and Texture
The lipstick in itself has a soft and creamy texture. It glides on pretty easily and gives a matte finish upon application. Does not really make your lips feel dry however if you do have dry lips, I would suggest using a lip balm underneath for a neat application. It does not bleed or smudge. It does not settle in fine lines. Gives a lovely smooth creamy finish. Because it is highly pigmented, I needed 2 to 3 swipes to get the finish as shown in the picture.
Shade Colorbar Bare
It is a beautiful brownish nude peach shade with pinkish tinge. It is one of the best MLBB (my lips but better) shades out there. I have a dusky skin tone and it suits me perfectly. I would say this particular shade is going to suit almost all skin tones. Some ladies did say that this is going to suit only fair skin tones but well I guess I would like to differ and take my chances when I suggest everyone to try this shade out.
The staying power is a total hit. It stayed on me for good 5-6 hours. Does not transfer a lot. After a light meal, I did notice slight fading. When you wipe it out, it strangely leaves a pink stain behind on the lips. I mean the stain looks more pink than the lipstick itself.
MBF Views and Recommendation
Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick 58 BR Bare is a beautifulbrownish nude peach shade with pinkish tinge, has a creamy yet matte finish which does not really make your lips feel dry. A long wear highly pigmented lipstick, it is definitely a must have for everyone who loves to have some nude lipsticks in their collection. It is quite affordable I would say inspite of the fact that colorbar recently raised their prices. Easy to apply, it does not feel heavy on the lips. I would recommend you to use a lip balm underneath if you got really dry lips.
