Hello to my lovely readers! December is here and so is the party season. It is the month where I can party anytime and for anything. Moreover, the cold season calls for really deep and rich lip colors as opposed to bright coral summers. Speaking of that, I came across a very pretty shade of pink last month. One of my friends was wearing this and I was stunned by the color. My joy was doubled as the color belongs to a very favorite lipstick range of mine - Colorbar Velvet Matte. I immediately ran to the store for this and have been wearing this color very often now. Read on to know my thoughts on the product.

My Experience With Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick Oh My Magenta:

Packaging: The lipstick comes in a partial steel and transparent packaging with a twist up function. The body of the lipstick is steel whereas the cap is transparent. The shade is coded at the lower part with the shade name written at the bottom. Overall, the packaging is good except for the cap which is slightly fragile and prone to cracks.
Shade: It is a mesmerizing magenta with a hint of purple. The shade is slightly on the darker side but not too dark. It instantly brightens up the complexions and quite a festive fall color to begin with. It suits a number of skin tones irrespective of the complexion. It has absolutely no shimmers and looks much deeper in person than the swatches.

Texture: The texture is creamy smooth and glides on the lips like a dream. This is the exact kind of matte lipstick you would want for the winters if you have dry lips. It is hydrating, soft yet looks matte without being stretchy or uncomfortable. It settles down with a satin matte look after few mins of the application. It doesn't settle into fine lines unless your lips are dry and flaky.
Pigmentation: The pigmentation is classy. With one swipe, it gives you almost opaque finish and with second swipe it covers every blemish of the lips. No matter how much I layer the color, it never bleeds or stains the lips. It is not complete transfer proof unless you set it with a powder.

Staying Power: The staying power is somewhat above average. It stays on the lips, without liner or layering too much, around 4-5 hours with little or no munching. It definitely requires touch-ups after heavy meals or towards the end of the day. The price is also reasonably good compared to the quality it delivers.

Pros Of Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick Oh My Magenta:
  • Simple, effective and color-coded packaging.
  • A mesmerizing magenta with a hint of purple.
  • Will suit every complexion.
  • Creamy smooth texture with a satin matte finish.
  • Doesn't settle into fine lines or bleed.
  • 1-2 swipes of the lipstick give a rich intense color pay off.
  • Staying power is 4-5 hours which can be enhanced with lip liner.

Cons Of Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick Oh My Magenta:
  • Not transfer proof like majority matte lipsticks.

Final Note:

The shade is a pure love. I would highly recommend it as it is a deep color yet brightens up the face like anything. One of the best shade of pink I have come across and I am going to purchase it again and again until I find something better than this.
