Neutrals and soft brown/peach/pinks are my eternal favorites. I totally rely on them each and every day. In fact, my search for these colors is endless. The other day when I went out for lunch with my bestie, I happened to come across Colorbar counter. The SA insisted me to try some swatches for matte lipstick. To my utter surprise, she swatched a beautiful brown shade and I could not help myself from buying it. It was Creme Cup 1 from Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick range. My previous experience with Colorbar was very good and I was hoping the similar one this time. So, have it fulfilled my expectations? Let's read about it.

My Experience With Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick Creme Cup 1:

Packaging: The lipstick is encased in a silver colored, cylindrical, twist up stick with a transparent plastic cap. The name and number of the shade is written on top and the color is visible at the bottom. Therefore it is very easy to locate the shade, if you are having more than one variant in your stash. The packaging is extremely travel-friendly and I have no issues carrying it around.
Shade: The shade is more of a milky brown on lips and it looks like a neutral brown when swatched on hands. It has absolutely no shimmer or frost. The shade might not suit dark skinned people but the color is a great option for fair to medium skin toned people. In fact, it is a perfect color for workplace.
Texture: The lipstick belongs to the family of 'velvet matte' and the texture absolutely resembles that. It has a matte texture but it glides on lips like a smooth one. Though it doesn't moisturize or heals the lips. it doesn't accelerate the dryness either. People who feel that their lips are too dry, should apply a lip balm underneath.

Pigmentation: Pigmentation is admirable as the color of the lipstick comes out with a single swipe. To achieve the complete desired look, you may want to apply another layer.
Staying Power: The staying power is commendable. It stays on my lips for a good 4-5 hours and evenly fades with time. It can easily survive snacks and drinks in between. If one needs to elongate the staying power further, I would advise to use the lip liner underneath.
I am actually impressed that a brand like Colorbar is having such a quality lipstick with such an affordable price tag. The color is extremely good for soft makeup look or workplace.

Final Note:

I am in love with this color. It's so humid at my place that I don't prefer wearing bright lipstick shades. Therefore, this color serves a great purpose for me. Besides, I am absolutely in awe of this 'velvet matte' range and hoping to buy some more variants from this range. These are definitely good quality lip colors.
