After recovering my illness, I headed to Mumbai along with Hubby for his official meet, where my bestie also lives, so you all can imagine how happy I am these days and also because of my bad health since last two weeks, this trip came at my rescue just in time…
I did lots of long chats with my best buddy, who is so much occupied at workplace that she seldom gets a chance to hang around with friends other than weekends
We were heading out one day when she showed me this Lip color and I was like what a beauty…!! I am wearing it now…! But because we had already taken so much time in getting ready that my hubby literally threatened us that he won’t click more pictures of both of us…so we settled on trying it for another day out and went ahead for our evening out
Today’s review is of the lip color from Colorbar cosmetics. It is a lip crayon and the range is Take Me As I Am and the shade I am going to review today is Sensuous Red (001)
All of you Red lip-lovers will love this bold red shade and I being a recent makeup addict instantly fell for the shade. Read on to know how I loved this lip crayon.

My experience with Colorbar Take Me As I Am Sensuous Red :
Packaging: This lip crayon is, as the name suggests, in the form of a jumbo lip pencil and is unique in its own way. The pencil is wooden and there is a cap enclosed on the top to protect the tip of this lip color.
Packaging is simple and non-messy and is very travel friendly. There is a sharpener provide with this lip color so as to ease the process of sharpening and you don’t have to spend more bucks on buying a sharpener for this.
Shade: The shade is Sensuous Red (001) and is a bright & bold red shade. This lip color has orange color undertones which makes it look a little bright upon application. This is a great red for all those beauties that are a sucker of red lippies and can carry red shade very well.
Texture & Pigmentation: This lip crayon is very creamy and glides like butter over the lips. This is a pure matte shade of red and is really a must have for all matte lovers.
This particular shade is the most pigmented shade in the entire range of Take Me As I Am and a single swipe is sufficient for an even application. I swatched the lip color multiple times on my hand but the shade didn’t get intense but remained the same. You can refer to the hand swatch picture I have attached along.
My experience withColorbar Take Me As I Am Sensuous Red:
I instantly fell in love with this shade although I believed that I don’t have the guts to wear this lip color in its intense form. Initially, I applied it as a lip stain and enjoyed the shade but after 3-4 applications I decided to try out the real shade in its intense form.
This is really a unique form of lip color and the ease of application makes it an obvious choice for many beauties. Unlike the case packaging, it is more travel friendly & compact and also there is no chance of product damage due to pressure or accidental falling.
The staying power of this lip color in its intense form is roughly 2 hours but the lip stain will last for more than 4 hours because of the highly pigmented shade.
It doesn’t dry the lips and keeps them moisturized so there is no question of color settling into the fine lines of the lips.
I have already mentioned above that it has a super creamy texture and gives a smooth application on the lips.
I loved this shade very much and happy that my friend invested in something very unique and didn’t waste her money in a dud product.
