Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick – Passion Shade No. 5 Review, Swatches , POTDs
I have been into red lipsticks lately, I do not know why but I have been going through the shades like anything. One such deep red shade in my vanity was Passion by Colorbar from their Velvet Matte range. This had been in my collection since a month now and I decided to wear it today for a mini trip to the grocery store. Red lips for a grocery store?? I know! 😀

In Detail Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick – Passion Shade No. 5 Review, Swatches , POTDs
I picked these shade with some 10 other Colorbar lipsticks. It looks like a very deep maroon shade in the bullet. But on the lips it comes as a lovely maroon colour which is not extra deep but just enough deep that its wearable. I find the the formula is lovely. The texture is smooth and glides on the lips very smoothly. I am super impressed with the pigmentation this lipstick has. I mean if you look at the swatches, you will know what I am talking about. The give a lovely opaque finish even in a single swipe. They give a nice matte finish to the lips without being overdrying. However if you do not remember to use a lip balm underneath, they might give you a dry lips feel after a while. So my advice would be to wear a lip balm before applying this.
The lipstick is extremely long staying. It stays on me for the entire day almost if I don’t mess with it. Even when I remove it with a tissue, it leaves a pretty strong stain behind. You need to use a good quality make up remover to get rid of the stain if you don’t like it. I personally don’t mind it usually 😀
The packaging does need a special mention. Lovely metallic finish tube with transparent cover. The tube itself is transparent at the bottom so you can visualise the shade easily.
