Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick In Obsessed Orange (4)Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick In Obsessed Orange: Swatches & Review

Orange  is the new pink they say and I am lapping it up. I used to apply nude, light pink shades for everyday wear but now post reading all the bright lipsticks on P&B , I am totally transformed. Now, I keep trying different shades of lipsticks and orange is my current favorite shade.   I already have two more shades from this Colorbar Velvet Matte range and since those were keeping me happy  I bought this third shade “obsessed orange” too. I am wearing this shade every single day so let’s move to the review.

Product DescriptionFor a rich lip colour with a creamy shine, the Velvett Matte Lipstick, available in stunning shades infuse the lips with vibrancy. Its unique 2-in-1 formulation gives the lips a creamy, yet matte finish. A one of a kind product in India, it has super softening agents that give the lips a soft and supple appearance while keep them nourished with Vitamin E. Staying on up to 5 hours on application, the Velvett Matte Lipstick can be further accentuated with lip gloss and lip liner.

My Experience with Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick-Obsessed Orange:

The shade “Obsessed orange” is a gorgeous peachy orange shade and exactly like – (okay this will sound wierd) but like lord hanuman’s tikka color. Haha. You know like that saffron color thats not a pure orange but its not yellow either? I have never seen such orangy shade ever and it’s exactly what I was looking for.  The shade is universally flattering and according to me it is going to compliment all skin tones.

The lipstick has a sweet caramel fragrance which vanishes after 5 minutes of application. The texture is smooth and it glides effortlessly on lips without pulling or tugging. The texture is neither moisturizing nor drying so make sure you apply lip balm underneath to avoid dry patches. I have tried other lipsticks too from this range and this one is less creamy and does not glide as well as some other lipsticks do. It gives a matte finish,  is highly pigmented and one swipe is good enough to hide pigmented lips. I just apply one swipe of this on my lips as the color looks bold on my skin tone (I am dusky). The staying is decent and it stays for 3 hours on my lips with slight meals in between. But for the price and the stunning shade, you cannot complain at all.

Recommendation: Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick-Obsessed Orange is gorgeous saffron color that is perfect if you want to sport an orange without looking like an Oompa Loompa. If you’re looking for the perfect orange lip shade at affordable price then this one is for you. Every skin tone can carry off this shade really well. The texture is non-drying, pigmentation is amazing and the finish is matte. The staying power is not so good but still the lipstick is worth trying.
