Product: Colorbar Kiss Proof Lip Stain – Haute Latte 007
Price: Rs. 950 for 6.5ml
About the lipstick: What if we told you that you could have all-day color that always looked fresh and felt as if you were wearing nothing? If this sounds too good to be true, Colorbar Kiss Proof Lip Stain will make you a believer. This liquid based lip stain can last up to 12 hours and will endure anything from the messiest meal to the most passionate kiss. The color stays exactly where you’ve applied it and will not smudge or transfer on to cups, clothes or skin. With a range of exciting shades, this revolutionary lip stain glides on like velvet and turns matte as it dries.
Packaging: This liquid lipstick comes packaged in a cylindrical silver metallic tube which has two see through bars on the tube, through which you can see the shade. The tube has Colorbar’s logo on it. The shade name and the other details are mentioned at the bottom. The applicator is attached to its cap once you open the lipstick. The applicator of this lipstick is great and is tapered which makes the application super easy. I like the packaging, it’s easy to carry around and use as well.
Texture and Finish: The texture of this liquid lipstick is creamy and soft as you apply it, BUT it settles down into a matte finish after a few minutes and stays put for a really long time. The lipstick looks very smooth and velvety upon application, it does not bleed or looks patchy, it settles down into a matte formula in a few minutes and looks really beautiful. The formula can be a little drying if you have not moisturized your lips well before applying this lipstick, so make sure you exfoliate and moisturize your lips well before wearing this lipstick, as the formula does feel a little dry after a few hours and can make your lips look flaky or patchy which is very unflattering. Other than that, the formula is super lightweight, doesn’t feel heavy on the lips at all. And yes, it is transfer-proof once it settles down into a matte finish.
Pigmentation: The pigment of these lipsticks are great. It gives maximum opacity in a single swipe and settles down into a beautiful matte finish. The applicator helps a great deal in depositing the pigment and the color onto the lips as well.
Longevity: The wear time of these lipsticks are good 5-6 hours. These lipsticks stay put for a really long time, if you’re not constantly eating and drinking. These are transfer-proof, but they do start fading after 5-6 hours from the center, which is pretty normal. You can touch it up after a 5-6 hours, or whenever you feel that it has started fading. Do carry a lip balm as well, if you’re out wearing this lipstick. These do tend to make your lips a bit dry, so you might want to apply lip balm if you’re touching up or if your lips start feeling dry.
Shade – Haute Latte 007: This shade is a beautiful mauve-ish brown with pink and coral undertones to it. This is a very flattering shade for all skin tones. It looks very sophisticated and is a very versatile shade. You can wear it during the day, or to office, or to an event or during night time, this shade will truly look great anytime. I really like this shade and have been wearing this since years now, it simply looks amazing.
