Guest Post By Monica
Till the college time I used to be a lip balm and glosses girl. Then I stumbled upon these beauty blogs and now I can proudly call myself a lipstick girl, though I still shy away from red.:-(
But slowly I am moving towards brights and like slow and steady wins the race, one day I will insha allah sport red also confidently.
Lipstick I am reviewing today is one of my first purchases. Let’s see how it fared.
What colobar says:
Colorbar Crème Touch Lipstick comes with the promise of lips that are eloquent and luscious. It comes with lovely rich colours and rich in moisturizing properties making lips look fuller and creamier all day long. It has sheabutter, Vitamin E and sunscreen agents at SPF 15 level which nourish and protect your lips against UV rays. It glides on effortlessly for flawless, even coverage for that perfect pout.
Line the lips with a suitable lip liner. Press the bullet to the lips using even pressure to apply color on both upper and lower lips: To refresh and even out, press lips together. Using a lip brush gives a richer and more precise color application.
Price: Rs.450/- for 4.5 gms
Packaging: The lipstick comes in a silver colored outer cover (which I threw! Silly me L). The bullet is also silver in color with colorbar written over it and shade name and no. is written at the bottom. All in all the packaging is nice, not like some cheap looking lipsticks.
Shade: Now comes the most important feature. The shade. Dreamy pink is a nice milky coral shade with pink tones. It is one of the best shades in my collection. Also this is nicely pigmented and 1 swipe gives color to lips, however I like to layer atleast twice.
Texture: Named crème touch, this lipstick is actually creamy and glides smoothly on the lips and is not drying at all. But if layered a lot, it settles into lines and might also bleed.
Finish: this gives a creamy finish to the lips. Period!
Staying power: Being a creamy lipstick, I didn’t expect it to last long and yes it doesn’t also. At max it stays for 3 hours with no eating in between. One meal in between and its gone!
As told earlier, I bought this lippie when I was a novice in this field. I always thought that since I have dry lips so I can wear only creamy lipsticks. But now when I have started wearing matte ones I think they look better on me than the creamy ones.
But still I love this lipstick because of the shade. Its simply an awesome shade which gives a nice glow to the face and looks pretty with both Indian as well as western clothes.
Wish I could get the same color in matte finish.
Pros of Colorbar crème touch Dreamy Pink:
- Creamy texture
- Glides smoothly on lips
- Not drying at all
- Lipstick’s USP is the shade- milky coral pink
- Decently pigmented.
- Has SPF 15.
Cons of Colorbar crème touch Dreamy Pink:
- Poor staying power.

Overall Verdict: this is an awesome color to own. Try it girls, I am sure you are going to love it on your lips.
