Fall is officially here and it’s time to sport deep browns, magenta and berry shades all over again. Today, I will be reviewing the Colorbar kiss proof lip stain in 006 mauve dusk.
What Colorbar 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 lipstick comes in a silver tube which has a transparent patch in between, from where the shade is visible. It comes in a silver cardboard box with all the details regarding the product. It has an elongated doe foot applicator with a hole in between, which controls the quantity of product.
Texture : The lipstick has a very soft texture, almost like a lip cream. I have other shades from the range too and I feel that the texture differs between different colors. It applies very smoothly and feels very lightweight on the lips. I like to prep my lips before using any kind of lipstick. It dries down fully matte after few minutes and is transfer proof.
Shade & Pigmentation : As the name suggests, mauve dusk is a deep mauve shade with blue undertones. It is a universally flattering shade but according to me, it will look best on deeper skin tones. The pigmentation is fantastic, gives opacity in one single swipe.
Staying power : It delivers on its promise of being transfer proof. It stays for 5-6 hours and starts to fade after a full meal.
- Easily available.
- Feels soft and creamy, lightweight formula.
- Great shade range to choose from.
- Good staying power.
- Opaque pigmentation in one single swipe.
- Does not settle into fine lines.
- Layering it may lead to patchiness.
- Can be a bit dry if lips are not prepped.
Verdict : A
Price : Rs. 900 for 6.5 ml
Recommendation : If you are looking for a transfer proof liquid lipstick, definitely try this one. Overall, I really like this range because of shades provided by the brand. Most of the colors suit Indian skin tones.
