My experience with Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick Brick-O-La 42M :-

  • Shade Γ’β‚¬β€œ BRICK-O-LA is a very unique and beautiful shade. Its pretty difficult to get a similar kinda shade to this because it is not fully red not fully pink or brown. It is a reddish-pink with brown undertones. Similar to that of MACÒ€ℒs brick-o-la. I totally dig this shade <3.  I wore this shade and went to visit my doc and then to the pharmacy shop to collect some medicines while roaming around I over heard a young girl saying in hindi to the counter lady that Ò€œwowwwww, her lipstick shade is so fab (masttt)Ò€ hehehe.. I pretended I never heard that though I did and felt even luckier to pick this shade. I do have a slight pout, but girls who have lips similar to mine or have a little thick lips is going to rock this shade! πŸ™‚

  • Texture the texture is smooth and soft unlike the normal matte lippies like I have already mentioned in my previous review on sultry pink. Not hard on lips at all. But if your lips are too drying you might not like this but the solution is the lipbalm.
  • Packaging – This lipstick comes in a steel body with a transparent cover making it easy to see through the shade. Easy to carry in your bag, as it doesnÒ€ℒt look like the kinds that would get damaged easily and it also has a number along with shade name. DonÒ€ℒt know why? πŸ˜›
  • Staying Power Γ’β‚¬β€œ I think I have praised the staying power a hell lot than any other thing about this lipstick. I have 3 reasons to give you to pick this shade putting it in the priority order 1)Staying power 2) Variety of beautiful shades 3) No touch ups needed. Yes! This is the only lipstick that doesnÒ€ℒt need any touch up once u have them on you. Simply because the lipstick requires a make up remover to be vanished. With this pace, you can imagine how long will this lipstick is going to last?? πŸ˜‰ It stays for good long 5-6hrs on my lips and leaves a lovely coralish pink tint πŸ˜€

Below is how it looks on Moi πŸ˜‰

See my lips are gone super dry because of the treatment but yet this shade is so pretty that it almost camouflaged it and yea there is no lipbalm usedJ

What I like about Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick Brick-O-La 42M Γ’β‚¬β€œ

  • Unique and Beautiful Shade
  • Staying power
  • Packaging and pricing
  • Smooth texture not a typical matte
  • Wide variety of colors
  • Suitable for most Indian skintones
  • Leaves a coralish pink tint
  • Can be worn even without a lipbalm if lips are not too dry.

What I dislike about Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick Brick-O-La 42M-

  • A make up remover is a must to get off the lipstick
  • Settles in fine lines
  • If lips are too dry, lipbalm underneath is a must!

Will I re-purchase Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick Γ’β‚¬β€œ Yes like I told you before I am going to buy HOT HOT and Obsessed Orange next! LOVE COLORBAR :-* :-*

  2. It luks coral on you but when I swatched it it looked like a brownish pink on me…its a very very pretty color…I have been eyeing it for so long but inne saare lippies ho gaye hain ki hubby gets furious when I get any now :((

  3. erica whatever u post its always value for a college student its very much helpful..thanks a lot!!!! :heart:

  4. erica didi i used a clinique product n got chemical rash all over my face…i checked n found that lot of people got the same reaction from looks sooo bad…do u know any remedy???

    • Hi Zeenath.. First of all go back to the clinique counter n tell dem u faced this issue with the products. becoz m sure the SA must have suggested u based on ur skintype so this shudnt happen with u.
      N secondly whenever i face such issue..I usually apply aloevera on my face, or cocoa butter bcoz it is very good for ur skin! I Have queen helene’s cocoa butter :-))

      • ya its a little itchy…i live in a small place named santiniketan in west bengal..we don’t have any clinique store here…so i can’t return the product…:(

        • i dont know if you get this stuff there but it is a small pink dabba which has calcium paste.. If you get that there then mix it with water and apply it on the rashes.. that way the itching comes down.. but try cucumber paste and olive oil.. they work well.. also aloe vera gel .

  5. hey erica,, lovely shade… i feel like trying all the shades from colorbar velvet matt lipsticks and yes u are right their staying power is good enogh..
