Colorbar Creme Touch Lipstick in Nude Coral: Swatches & Review

In psychology, they say that your birth order determines your personality. Specifically, if you are the youngest sibling,  you are likely to be fun-loving , uncomplicated , outgoing and attention grabbing. While the Colorbar Creme Touch Lipstick may not exactly be attention grabbing, its definitely the funner, uncomplicated younger brother of Mac Mocha and Nyx Herades.(Btw- im the older sibling and i dont like that we are supossed to be the controlled, boring ones. Hey im fun ok!) .

Why do i call this a younger brother. Well for one it has the same peachy brown characteristics of Mac Mocha, but its a more fun color in the sense that its more peachy orange  and less browner. Similarly it has that beautiful terracotta tile color of Nyx Herades, but it isnt quite as strong, and is just a whiff lighter . Its a stunning color for all Indian skin tones- specially if you are medium to dark and you love this kind of peachy , earthy, terracotta colors !  I wont call it a nude per se, because it has a lot of life in it, but its a color you can just easily throw on for work, or wear out at night with dark eyes, or just have fun with it for a girly brunch!

Colorbar Creme Touch Lipsticks were  my favourite budget lipsticks of 2012. They are super pigmented- all you need is one swipe, they are quite creamy and moisturizing and last an average amount of 4-5 hours. Even when they wipe out, you will find a soft stain of the color on your lips and thats something i really like ! If you loved the Colorbar Velvet Mattes, but were annoyed thaat they could be drying and did not really glide on you lips that easily  and the plastic packaging was kind of tacky then you need to try their suave, cooler cousins  -the Creme Touch Lipsticks (Theres too much of sibling-ness happening in this post)

Verdict: A

Product: 4.5/5, Pigmentation: 4.5/5, Texture: 4.5/5, Packaging: 4/5, Longevity :3.5/5

Price: Rs 450/-

Recommendation: Colorbar Creme Touch Lipstick in Nude coral is a beautiful, earthy, peachy terracotta color that will look fantastic on all indian skin tones. I adore these kind of shades anyway- this has the perfect amount of brown and peachy orange to not just be a great work wear shade but also transition into a fun night out shade. Colorbar Creme Touch is a great lipstick formula and even though these are more expensive than Velvet mattes, im okay with that!

Yup theyr definitely worth a shot!


Ikya January 14, 2013 at 12:24 am

I couldn’t comment from my phone today! Why doesn’t bb have a blogger app! It wouldn’t probably help, but I hate that it has one for wordpress and not for blogger! Anyway, when I read the review, I was constantly thinking Maybelline Bronze Orange, but this colour is so much prettier and happier than that! looks fabulous on you!


mehak January 14, 2013 at 9:30 am

Hai na its so similar to bronze orange! I think bronze orange is more brnzer and this is more peachier !!


Ikya January 14, 2013 at 7:39 pm

Totally! This is lighted and peachier


priyanka January 14, 2013 at 10:45 am

MissBoPeep January 14, 2013 at 3:17 pm

Its the guilt of ignoring something. That’s what I did to colorbar. Donno why but I never checked it out. What is their best product to buy from Colobar? What do you recommend, Mehek?
