Every girl wants that perfect pair of red lips that has been worn to perfection by the likes of Mischa Barton and Angelina Jolie. The  look requires minimal concealer and bronzing and Indians with strong skin colours can carry it  off effortlessly.



So, I set out to find the perfect red lip colour on a very low budget, and chanced upon the Colorbar lipstick range  in The shade – Hot Hot Hot. It seemed like the perfect shade of red – bold and classy.
 with a  texture that was smooth and it went on the lips easily. I put it on without a lip liner and without finishing it with gloss. The product had a natural sheen and shiny effect.

The Colorbar lipstick has a natural moisturizing effect also and lips remained soft. One drawback of the product was that after keeping it on for about two hours, the color began to fade and smudge.
Overall, the look would be great for an evening look or a night of clubbing and partying and the Colorbar lipstick (Hot Hot Hot) is a great option if you want to experiment this look before buying a higher range product or if you’re on a low budget. 


 Overall Verdict: 3.5/5 or B+

Will I Repurchase: Yes

Price: Rs 225/-

Recommendation: Colorbar fire engine red lipstick – Hot Hot Hot from their Velvet Matt range is a great way to begin your search for those perfect red lips. It’s creamy and  pigmented, and makes for a  perfect red
