I did not own a single Colorbar lipstick till now and when I went to the store I did not want to buy Velvette mattes because I was scared of their staining. I swatched Velvette Mattes and quite liked the shade ‘Oh My Magenta’ but was wary of buying it, then I started swatching Soft Touch lipsticks and came across this shade which was quite close to ‘Oh My Magenta’. I even liked the texture better than Velvette mattes.Colorbar lipstick in Matina review+colorbar

  • Packaging: I am very lazy and I always give priority to convenience than how pretty the packaging is. I cannot see the color without opening this, which would be really irksome if I owned more shades from this range. I do not remember Lipstick names for long so this is an issue for me.
  • Texture: Brilliant! The texture is super smooth. Glides easily on lips and does not dry them. Although, I use a lipbalm under my lipsticks without fail. But some lipsticks dry the lips even then and this is not one of them.Colorbar lipstick in Matina review+colorbar lipstick

  • Pigmentation: One swipe gives decent color but two swipes give the true color to my lips in its full glory.
  • Shade: Oh this is a beautiful Rosy pink shade with Red undertones. The Red undertones are quite prominent which makes this shade a lot pretty. The real shade is nowhere close to the online presentation. This shade just brightens up my complexion and I feel it would suit a lot of girls.Colorbar lipstick in Matina review+colorbar matina swatch
  • Staying Power: The staying power is really sad and the only factor for making this lipstick 10/10. It stays on me for 2-2.5 hours but leaves a pinkish tint behind which is pretty too. This can’t survive meals, I am not talking about butter naans, it did not even survive Domino’s Garlic bread.Colorbar lipstick in Matina review+colorbar lipstick swatch

What I don’t like about Colorbar lipstick in Matina:

  • Staying power is sad
  • Packaging! Why couldn’t they keep any shade indicator on the case L.


Despite the cons, I love this shade and lipstick a lot and would recommend all of you to try this at the store.

Will I repurchase? I won’t be able to finish it before it expires and if I won’t find a dupe with longer staying power, I will buy it for sure.
