(This particular range was Priced at Rs. 225/- earlier when I first bought this lipstick. Then they raised it to 249/- , again they hiked their prices and then it was for 275/- and now it’s for 325/-. So overall there were 4 times price hike in this lipstick range which didn’t have anything new added. It’s just the same formula and the same lipstick that was before.) Very disappointed with the continuous rise in price of colorbar products.

Cons of Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick Over The Top 1
1) price (there is almost everything that I love about this lipstick. It is still affordable to buy, but I don’t support this brand for rising the price constantly.) sorry to say colorbar but you need to work on this on a serious note.
1) if you have extremely dry lips use a lip balm before applying this lipstick.
2) to increase the wear time of your lipstick apply matching lip pencil all over the lips and then follow up with a lipstick.
3) if you still feel that your lips are drying out apply some transparent gloss on to the lips . This will definitely increase the wear time of your lipstick.
4) last but not the least buy this lipstick in discount season if possible.
(I usually deduct 0.5 for the price although this is a affordable lipstick but so may times hike in price just disappointed me. So -1 for the hike in price.)
