Colorbar Velvet Matte 

Hello Dolls,

I am so happy to write my first post for wise she..  Wise she is one of my inspiration to start my own blog and  share my passion with you all.. blogging is like a whole another world to me with such a sweet fellows like Ric, Ana and Zee  and many more 🙂  I never thought I may found such beautiful persons over the internet..  so coming to the post ..

this is my first post so I thought I should review something which is very special to me :)..   I was not a makeup person in my college days or even till my wedding..  I just use to put a kohl and a lip tint and thts it…  when I was shopping for my wedding my mom got lots of cosmetic for me  and hence I got my first set of lippies which are Colorbar Velvet Matte in Rum Raisin, Temptation and Iced Tea..  Those days these use to came into square packaging and I totally fell in love with rum raisin and temptation (may be bcoz I luv  Temptation’s Rum Raisin flavor :P)..

My experience with Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick Rum Raisin 41M :-

  • Shade: Rum Raisin is very pretty mauve maroon shade which will suit almost all Indian skin tone.. and this color brighten up my skin tone whenever I wear it… its very pretty bridal shade  🙂

Swatches of Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick Rum Raisin 41 M:-


  • Texture: its very creamy in texture and unlike matte lipsticks it doesn’t make my lips dry.. for people who have very dry lips can wear this with a lipbalm underneath..
  • Packaging: this comes in steel like round body with a transparent cap which is very helpful to see the shade and the shade no and name are mentioned in bottom of the cover 🙂
  • Staying Power: staying power of this lippie is not as gud as others in the category .. its not lasts me lesser thn hot hot hot or addictive magenta or even temptation.. after 2-3 hours(without ny food) it completely vanishes… but I don’t blame it as I luv the shade…
