Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in Thrilling Pink

Today I’m reviewing a  very popular lipstick in the Indian market, Colorbar Velvet Matte lipstick in Thrilling Pink. I doubt you’ll find a blog without a review on this! It has a lot of favourable reviews but I found my experience with these lipsticks very mixed.

Thrilling Pink is a medium bright pink. It gives a very soft look and it’s a very wearable pink. It looks very warm in the tube and when I swatch it but for some reason it looks more cool toned on my lips!

I first tried this in the winters when my lips weren’t in the best shape. I found this to be too drying and it accentuated the lines and problem areas even if I wore a moisturiser. I was disappointed and shelved it for many months. Recently, I thought I’d give it another go and my gosh, it goes on so well in comparison! It looks so smooth! I really think it’s the weather and the condition of my lips in combination that made it work this time. They are in much better shape now and I don’t constantly need moisturiser. It’s also warmer and humid which I think makes the application much more smooth.

So, if you have great lips, these are great lipsticks at a bargain price but it may not work as well in colder climates.

I don’t find them to be very moisturising and so it’s not my top choice. But they give a semi matte kind of finish. These do stay on well for 5-6 hours but they fade a bit unevenly.

It also has a mild vanilla fragrance which is pleasant.

You get about 4.2g of product for Rs. 250; it’s a sweet deal!
