Colorbar’s Pout In A Pout Lipcolors are one smashing launch from the brand which are raved for their fabulous formula all around! I had previously reviewed shade ROSA PETAL & today it’s yet another pretty coral from the range-Fable Pink!
These lipcolors comes in a sturdy transparent round pot with a silver lid inclusive of an inbuilt mirror & a tiny applicator brush fitted on the lid. The brush takes little effort to be pulled out & is decent enough for on go touch ups. The packaging is well accoutred without the need of carrying any extra tools along & it is slightly bulkier than the very famous Lip Pots.
Formula wise these are light weight, non-sticky, buttery soft & super creamy packed with potential pigments and hydrating agents for a comfortable long wear. The formula gives a cushiony feel on lips keeping them soft, supple & hydrated for good long hours without the need of moisturization. They give a nice luscious glossy finish which keeps reducing progressing the wear time but doesn’t go matte or dull. I have extremely dry lips and can go without any lip balm topping for easily 5 hours with these after which once they start to stain I do feel a slight craving for moisturization. And because these are packed with pigments goes almost opaque with a single pass (the cushiony formula allows a little transparency)! They stay whole day & I do require a makeup remover to wipe off the stubborn stain especially when I don’t scrub my lips the stain peeks into those lines making it difficult to get the colour completely out of lips. However on well-groomed lips it’s never an issue. In a nutshell it’s a complete formula in itself- light weight, creamy, cushiony, hydrating, non-sticky & pigmented/ long wearing…phew! What else you can ask for….
The only downfall I could see is the bleeding issue during heavy humid days ( I stay in a city where temp above 40 degrees are common!) where the formula almost gets semi liquidy in the pot & goes out of lip line super easily post application! It also gets out of pot making whole packaging very messy.
FABLE PINK like the name is a gorgeous Neutral Pink which is a great flattering everyday wear shade. Somehow it looks a lot Coral in tub! I was impressed with the wear power of Rosa Petal where it refused to leave my lips until I used oil based remover, however Fable Pink doesn’t go that long. It gives me 4 hours of wear before subsiding down to pretty stain which stays for couple of hours more. Still I could find slight hint of colour at the end of 6 hours which disappeared completely after that. The pigmentation is rich & blankets my moderately pigmented lips in two simple passes. The shade will suit most of the skintones but might wash out deeper tones. I am a big sucker for such shades which are kind of no brainers & compliments any look. Such are more of a staple shades & must have in your vanity. Highly Recommended!
