My Take on the Colorbar Matte Touch lipstick Tempted:
Colorbar launched this new set of Matte Touch lipsticks few months back and I was totally ignorant about these :/. Seeing these listed as ‘Bestsellers’ on their website left me intrigued. I searched for swatches online but found very little help still decided to pick this shade ‘Tempted’, that actually left me tempted, but to my dismay it was OOS even at the website. I had to wait for 2 weeks and finally grabbed it. Here’s my review on the same after using it for over 3 months.
Shade: ‘Tempted’ is a pretty warm toned coral pink with hues of red undertone. The shade is bright but not into your face sorts. It brightens up the skin tone still one can easily carry it off during the day also. The shade appears deeper pink in indoor lighting but in natural light it turns to a lovely coral pink. The warm undertone makes it a beautiful choice for Indian skin tone. It’s definitely a unique color in my vanity.
Texture: This matte touch lipstick is actually a creamy matte which gets applies nicely and evenly in a single swipe. It’s good even in terms of pigmentation and 1-2 swipes leaves a lovely color on the lips. It’s not drying at all and sits comfortably on the lips till it fades away. I didn’t find the color settling in fine lines. No problem of bleeding or feathering of the color too.
Staying power: The shade easily stays on for 6 hours with light snacks in between. A tint is left after a full meal but one needs a re-application for getting back the intensity of the color.
Packaging: The lipstick comes housed in a metallic silver pack with no color indication. If you have similar range of lipsticks, better keep them upside down as there is a color mark at the base of the pack.
I won’t call these lipsticks sturdy as I received a damaged piece first of all :’(. The bullet was broken from the base still as I loved the color so much and as it was not so easily available then, I decided to use this one only by fixing it somehow at the base. You can see the disfigured bullet in pictures here. Keep them safe especially from heat as the lipstick tends to melt easily and break. I refrigerated it during the hot summers.
- Lovely coral pink shade.
- Universally flattering color
- Highly pigmented
- Creamy that gets applied easily.
- Great staying power.
- Decently priced.
- Not sturdy as it melts easily in hot weather.
- No color indication on pack.
Final Word: Available in a variety of 36 shades, these lipsticks are surely going to impress most of you out there. Tempted being a pretty coral pink and its warm undertones makes it a good choice for Indian skin tone. Being non-drying and staying for long is another plus points to look at. I definitely recommend these.
