Now Colorbar has hiked the prices to 250 INR.
Colorbar Velvet Matte lipsticks are one of the best budget buys with rich pigmentation & glides nicely on lips with smooth texture, not very satin smooth but does well in application part without any discomfort. They give an amazing wear time of about 7-8 hours on my lips fading away with a strong even tint & you do need to work hard to get the colour completely wiped out from your lips! Given that these are matte lipsticks, are moisturising enough on my dry lips without making them uncomfortable. I won’t say they are very moisturising but at the same time not drying also.With an average packaging provided with a transparent bottom for quick identification of shades & easily workable formula though cannot be compared to a high end brand but performs excellent for the price.
Shy Cherry is a warm muted cherry red. It doesn’t comes out as very brilliant red on lips & is quite understated with warm tones. If you are not comfortable with bright & bold reds but love to have a wearable red then check out this one. The shade is highly pigmented & gives good complete opaque coverage in a single swipe. Though this can be layered for more intense colour pay off but that doesn’t change its subdued quality. The warmer tones of the shade keeps it safe from entering into the vibrant side of the spectrum.
I do need a good moisturising lip balm when wearing this as it tends to dry out lips & accentuate the lines & dry flakes on the lips after few hours of wear (It’s not the same case with most of the other shades I own from this range). Shy Cherry wears for good 7 hours on me & starts fading then leaving a strong reddish tint. The tint is so strong that I have to use a makeup remover to get it wiped out completely. So technically this stays for whole day on my lips.

Shy Cherry is a warm toned muted red which is very to carry without calling for attention. It’s a great option for females uncomfortable with bold & vibrant reds. The warm tones in the shade make it very wearable. However it tends to dry out lips accentuating the lines & dry flakes. So make sure to properly exfoliate you lips & use a good hydrating lip balm. It gives me 7 hours of wear time followed by the strong tint which stays till properly removed with a makeup remover. If you are hunting for a good everyday wearable red then look no further than this one.
