Review: Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipsticks in Sultry Pink and Creme Cup

Today you will be viewing the magnificence of two pretty lipsticks from Colorbar.

Put on your sunglasses……they’ll dazzle you!


L-R: Sultry Pink and Creme Cup

Sultry Pink is a warmed deep rose that is a neutral, everyday pink on me. Not too bright and not too raspberry.

In natural sunlight:

Sultry Pink is on the top and Creme Cup is on the bottom.

Creme Cup is a warmed peachy brown. Perfect for those natural makeup look days.

The quality of these lipsticks are excellent. I experienced great pigmentation, opacity, wear time and even coverage. Like many matte lipsticks, these were a little drying but it was nothing I couldn’t deal with.

If you live outside of India, Colorbar is difficult to obtain. I received these through a swap with a fellow blogger. 

I did find an online store that ships to America. However, prices are inflated so you may want to try finding an Indian friend to CP or swap with.

Pros: Great pigmentation, wear time, good coverage, not too sheer or patchy, shades are true to swatch.
Cons: A touch drying, difficult to obtain outside of India.

Grade: A
