Friend’s post by Nidhi
Hi friends. This is my first review for Preetha’s blog. When she asked me to write for her, I just could not say ‘No’ to such a gem of a person and friend that she is. Well, I hope to write many more reviews for her, whenever time permits. J
Today I would be reviewing two lovely shades from the well known Colorbar velvet matte range. Those who love matte lipsticks must have tried atleast 1 lipstick from this range till now. Colorbar velvet matte lipsticks offer a wide range of shade selection and you get to try some great lipsticks at less price.
Product Description: For a rich lip colour with a creamy shine, the Velvett Matte Lipstick, available in stunning shades infuse the lips with vibrancy. Its unique 2-in-1 formulation gives the lips a creamy, yet matte finish. A one of a kind product in India, it has super softening agents that give the lips a soft and supple appearance while keep them nourished with Vitamin E. Staying on up to 5 hours on application, the Velvett Matte Lipstick can be further accentuated with lip gloss and lip liner.
The Shades: Temptation is my recent purchase and love these days. It is a lovely plum purple shade with a light glossy finish, yes, not completely matte. It comes out nice and bright on the lips and just alone lightens up the face. The color stays for a full 6 hours on me which I adore.
Verve is a completely matte medium brown shade. It can be layered up to look darker. This was the first shade I owned from Colorbar and was quite happy with my purchase. This one stays on for 4+ hours. The stain is not that strong.

Texture: Although being matte lipsticks, these are soft and get applied smoothly and easily. They do not have a tendency to melt in this hot weather. They do not dry up my lips or settle in fine lines.
Packaging: A little boring transparent case with a see through lid. But the clear color indication at the bottom helps to identify the lipsticks.
· Lovely shades.
· Great staying power.
· Decent price.
· No problem of melting or feathering of the lipsticks.
· Soft and smooth application.
· Can be a little drying for some.
Final Word: Well, at this price, I could not have asked for more. For me, these are some great matte lipsticks and Iam already eyeing a couple of more shades from this range.
And this is how Temptation looks on me. Both snaps are taken in different lightings.
