Product Review: Colorbar Velvet Matte (Shade: 58BR Bare)

colorbar velvet matte lipstick bareThe Colorbar Velvett Matte Range is available in 45 different shades. With the aim of providing a 2 in 1 finish, i.e. matt and creamy, Colorbar has some beautiful shades under this range. If you’re looking for the perfect nude shade, go buy yourself the Velvett Matt Bare.

for blogApt for the Indian skin tone, this one is smooth and creamy when swatched on the arm as well as on the lips. It’s adequately opaque and one coat would be enough to cover all the pigmentation. The colour is a beautiful pinkish nude and looks extremely natural. The lipstick claims to last for 5 hours and on actual application would easily last for 3-4 hours. Although the lipstick is not very moisturizing, it’s doesn’t make your lips very dry either unlike other matte lipsticks.

Overall, this one is a great buy for daily use, natural, formal and very creamy.

Product Review: Lakme 9 to 5 Lipstick

Lakme has launched a range of shades in their new long lasting 9 to 5 range.  We got our hands on the MR6 Vermillion Fired Shade.  Here’s what we thought of it.

lakme 9 to 5 lipstickA bright shade of orange, this one is vibrant and ideal for day wear. Lakme primarily launched this segment of lipsticks for the office goers so that the color lasts through the day. What we loved about the lipstick was the Matte texture and the superb metallic packaging.  When swatched on the arm, the shade is smooth and creamy but it can get patchy on the lips and needs multiple coats. The lipstick does last for about 4-5 hours, definitely less than they claim but it makes for a great option for everyone who loves neon shades.
