This brand has come up with a lot of awesome makeup & skincare products in the market. So far Colorbar has really impressed me with its makeup range and it’s quality. Today, I’ll be reviewing and swatching their much loved Deep Matte Lip Cremes. Let’s get right into it..


My Take on the Product:

Packaging and Price: These Lip Creme comes in a basic gloss like tube packaging with a silver metallic cap. The transparent tube shows up the color making it convenient to identify the shade. The applicator is long and sleek offering a good amount of control for the application. It retails for Rs. 675/- in Colorbar Store and easy to find on various makeup websites.

Texture & Pigmentation: The texture of these cremes is pretty smooth. The formula easily glides on the lips. These are like the liquid lipsticks and gives quite a good pigmentation in a single swipe and can be layered up to build the color, if needed. It is not 100% opaque but it adequately spreads the color to cover up the uneven lips in a single round. It does not dry out the lips and keep it moisturized. Staying power is also very good. It managed to survive for a decent 5-6 hours without fading at all.

Shades: The shades that I’ll be swatching are Deep Rust-006 & Deep Lily-002

Deep Rust 006: This is a rusty orange shade. Neither too bright not too light. Will suit a lot of medium to fair skin tones. Swatch given below:

Deep Lily 002: This is a beautiful bright pink shade. Very pigmented and looks beautiful on the lips. Will suit almost all skin tones. The only con of this shade is that it leaves  a bit of stain on lips but not much to worry about-it’s easily removable.  Pretty shade to go for. PN the color in swatch looks a little different from its actual shade due to lighting and photography. Will soon swatch it on lips in natural light for the better understanding. Swatch given below:

  • Does not dry lips
  • Does not feel heavy on the lips

  • The Applicator picks up a lot of product

Overall Verdict:

I definitely recommend this product. It comes in a variety of beautiful shades from brights to nude-all wearable and will suit almost all skin tones. The staying power good too. In my opinion, it’s worth trying.
