Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick Over the Top Swatch, Review
New year parties are always a bit over the top just like Colorbar Over the top lipstick ! Like the one year where there was just one bathroom in a huge farmhouse of about 700 people, and my friend somehow convinced other girls that there was a tsunami(?) in the loo, so we could get it free for ourselves .(Once alcohol is in your system, people believe anything!). Or yesterday’s new year party, which was minus any boyfriend (We decided its time to party girls style this year without male interruption), and hence resulted in some absolutely crazy dancing on top of any surface we could find, having a fight with a random boy of the superiority of Delhi vs other cities, and convincing his girlfriend that she really shouldnt be dating him :p .
Anyway, so a lipstick like Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in Over the top is the perfect little accessory for OTT nights!

Colorbar Over the top lipstick
Colorbar Over the top lipstick is an earthy coral pink . Its a color that look different on the lips versus swiped on the hand. Swatched on my hand it leans more orange, but once on your lips  its definitely a pink . Its a color that adds brightness to the face without being excessively bright or “Over the top” itself! But at the same time, it is warm and earthy so its a brilliant option for indian skin tones- specially if you are looking at a subtle way to just add some color to your face. The Color bar Velvet Matte Lipsticks are not really true mattes, because they do still have a slight shine to them once on the lips- so if you are looking for stark mattes you may want to look elsewhere

Colorbar lipsticks in General.
Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipsticks are some of the best budget matte lipsticks around. They are pigmented, decently creamy for a matt lipstick and have a very very long staying power.  They might not have the glide and slip of high end lipsticks, but they have a good texture that doesnt give problem on application.They easily last about 8 hours on me even with eating, and they leave a nice tint on your lips even as they fade. Given that these are matte lipsticks, they perform really well on the moisture front too. While i wouldn’t call these moisturizing, they are definitely not drying either- which is something that matte lipsticks generally have a problem with. I don’t particularly love the slightly cheap looking packaging, but given how affordable these are they are definitely bang for your buck material!
