It is very difficult to get a hold of international brands here in India unless you are willing to pay extra. And as for liquid lipsticks, we all want them to be feather light, non-drying, transfer proof and the check list goes on! Indian brands these days are all geared up and giving high end brands a run for their money. They are providing quality products without burning a hole in our pockets. The Colorbar kiss proof lip stain is one such product; read on to know more.

Claims: This revolutionary product has a new word to describe the power of this formula: ‘non-kiss-offable’. This sophisticated no-transfer liquid lip stain formula glides on flawlessly and delivers impressively long-lasting, velvety color that will not transfer and stay all day long. It is also enriched with Vitamin E to provide anti-oxidant benefits and smooth application. The weightlessness of the formula will provide you with all-day comfort wear lip makeup and a flawless look.

Packaging :  The tube comes in a silver cardboard packaging with all the details of the product; ingredients list, shade name & shelf life. The actual product comes in a very classy and sleek silver tube, where one portion of the tube is transparent so that the shade is visible. The lipstick has a doe foot applicator which provides precise application and control over the product.

Texture :  The texture of the lipstick is very creamy and feels comfortable. It turns fully matte after a few minutes of application, so prepping your lips is a must while working with such liquid lipsticks. Talking about the transfer proof claim; it transfers very little after few minutes of application, but after it dries it becomes completely transfer proof.

Shade & Pigmentation : Haute latte is a true pink mauve-y brown shade which will flatter all skin tones. The pigmentation of these lipsticks is great. It gives maximum opacity in one single swipe.

Staying Power : The longevity of these lip stains is amazing. It stays for a good 5-6 hours but it starts to fade after a meal, leaving a stain on the lips.

Pros :

  • Easily available.
  • Dries down completely matte.
  • Creamy formula.
  • Good staying power.
  • Sleek packaging.

Cons :

  • Feels a bit dry.
  • On the expensive side.

 

Verdict : A

Price : Rs. 900 for 6.5 ML

Recommendation : Overall, I am very impressed with this. It comes in a variety of shades ranging from brights to nudes. The formula is soft but may feel a little dry on insides and corners of the lips. Pigmentation is great with a long staying power.

That’s a gorgeous brown! I often find true matte liquid lipsticks to be too drying, but I must admit that the swatch above looks excellent.
