Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in Oh My Magenta Review, Swatches & LOTD

Hello girls….how’s life? I am feeling home sick for a while now. I will pack my bags and go home in few days to spend sometime with my family. The post, I am writing today was in my draft for over a month. I was too lazy to write a new post so thought of completing this one today. Almost all of us are well known to Colorbar Velvet Matte lippies and you guessed it right, I am reviewing one of the most preferred shade of the range- Oh My Magenta. I think, I am the last person to review it yet I wont mind praising this “oh so beautiful color” which is aptly name “Oh My Magenta!” Let’s see a quick review below:

Price: INR 275 for 4.2g

Ingredients: Not mentioned

What The Product Claims: For a rich lip color with a creamy shine, the Velvet Matte Lipstick, available in 45 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 Velvet Matte Lipstick can be further accentuated with lip gloss and lip liner.

My take on the product: As the name suggests, Colorbar Oh My Magenta is a lovely magenta shade with neutral undertones.

This shade will flatter many skin tones. The lipstick comes in a round packaging with a see through bottom which I think is quite helpful to locate the shade you want. The cap is made up of transparent plastic which fits snugly.

Coming to the texture, these lipsticks have matte finish but does not makes lips dry. The lipstick glides smoothly on lips. It is safe to use a lip balm underneath to avoid any kind of discomfort.

The pigmentation is awesome and the color stays on lips for almost 4-5 hours. It fades leaving behind a reddish- pink tint. The lipstick has a strong fragrance which I do not like. I am quite impressed with the texture and pigmentation of these lipsticks.

I have another lovely shade from this range which I’ll be reviewing sometime in future.

Pros: 1. Reasonably priced
2. Highly pigmented
3. Does not dry out lips
4. Stays for 4-5 hours.

Cons: 1. Fragrance might be a problem
2. People who do not like long wear lipsticks may not find it useful.

Rating: 4.5/5

Will I Recommend This? : Yes, this is one of the best budget lipsticks known to me. So go on girls……
