Colorbar Velvette Matte Lipstick Review - Bronx

Hi everyone,

I am a big fan of nude lipsticks along with all the red lipsticks.

Today I am going to review a nude lipstick from the Colorbar family - Colorbar Velvette Matte in Bronx shade.

I was hunting for a great nude shade which I can wear it to work everyday and which is a little hydrating on my lips. Some of the matte lipsticks that I use are not moisturizing.The matte tend to be a little on the dry side. But after testing the swatch in the store and hearing the range name "Velvette", I thought of taking it. The shade color was what I was looking for and although being matte, the name velvette gave a satisfaction that it would give some hydration for my lips.

Product Description

For a rich lip color with a creamy shine, the velvette matte lipstick available in stunning shades infuses the lips with vibrancy. it 2-in-1 formulation gives the lips creamy, yet matte look. Its softening agent gives the lips soft and supple while keep them nourished with vitamin E


I got it for INR 275

My Experience

Yes, the claims are true. Being a matte finish lipstick it does gives a creamy finish on lips. It glides on my lips smoothly and there is a bit of a shine on my lips throughout. Once the lipstick settles down on the lips, it gives a unique combination of creamy yet matte look. Do not know about the Vitamin E part though but it does not dry up my lips at all not even in winters.

The packaging is simple. It comes in a transparent plastic body. Simple,sober and see through.One can see the shade from outside.

Coming to the shade - Bronx that I had picked up and had been using since many days, it is a lovely sheer brown color lipstick with yellow undertone. The bullet of the lipstick looks much deeper in color than the actual payoff on the lips. Two swipe is enough to get that desired nude lips.I wear to work almost everyday and it is not at all overpowering and my face retains the neutral look through out the day.One can create a nice smoky eye and can apply this lipstick.

I think it is such a color which can will look good on any skin tone and skin color.It will not wash out anybody's face at all.The staying power of the lipstick is around 4-5 hours with little meals in between.
However I am a fan of those lipsticks which leaves a stain behind. But this one does not.I have to keep re-applying it after a heavy meal or any drink.

The lipstick glides smoothly and is creamy on the lips.The texture is good enough for something at this price range. But I have observed one thing, that in winters the bullet of the lipstick turns a little dry and hard. But the payoff remains the same- soft &creamy.That is indeed great.
