Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick Demure 82V Review & Swatches


Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick – Demure 82V Review and Swatches

All of us here have heard and used the much raved Velvet Matte Range from Colobar. This was my first lipstick from Colobar per se. A friend of mine tried it on me and she liked the shade so much that both of us bought one each.

The other day, Erica had posted a request on a Dupe for her Pink VOV Lipstick and I realized I have two shades of the same color and thought I’d review them to give her and you girls out here a better idea. I share a love hate relationship with this lippie and read to know why.

  • Price and Quantity: 225/- for 4.2g
  • The Shade:  It’s a  pink plum perfect matte lipstick with absolutely no shimmer.  You can wear it every day to work as well.

  •  Texture and Pigmentation: A very creamy lipstick that goes on opaque on pigmented lips, you will need a couple of swipes to get that full color though. And don’t forget that this being a matte lippie, exfoliation is a must.

What I like about Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick – Demure 82V:

  • A lovely pink shade
  • Affordable
  • Will flatter all skin tones
  • Is widely available

What I don’t like about Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick – Demure 82V:

  • The very fact that it rips my lips of moisture and elasticity leaving me with prune lips.

Talking about this lipstick, the first time I tried it on, it looked gorgeous. After a while say around 3hrs the lipstick started fading away slowly and steady. Most lipsticks usually leave either a beautiful stain behind or washes away. But our lady Ms. Demure did neither, she left behind one ugly stain leaving my lips parched of moisture and their suppleness. I was left with weird lips; I had a couple of co-workers even ask me if something was wrong with my lips. That weird it was. :-/

Look at this for visual proof. You see those fine lines? Scary right?

Will I repurchase Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick – Demure 82V!

Nope, I wouldn’t buy this again. But you can always try it and see it if it works well for you. Different lippies work differently with different women.

PS: Don’t lose hope, there’s a close match of the same lippie coming in very soon.

Stay Tuned!
