Hey My Beauties!!
Today, I am going to review a pretty lip color from my stash of lippies which I am using for almost 3-4 months on a regular basis and its always a part of my daily office bag. Lets know more about this amazing lip color from Colorbar – Creme Cup.
What Colorbar says about the range –
For a rich lip colour with a creamy shine, the velvet matte lipstick, available in 45 stunning shades infuse the lips with vibrancy. Its unique 2-in-1 formulation gives the lips a creamy yet matte finish. A one of a kind product in India, it has super softening agents that give the lips a soft and supple appearance while keeping them nourished with Vitamin E. Staying on up to 5 hours on application, the velvet matte lipstick can be further accentuated with lip gloss and lip liner.
Rs. 275/- for 4.2 gms.
A silver bullet with transparent cap and a see through back that lets you get the idea of colour of lippie. I love such packaging. Though not that sturdy packaging, but its good to go. And as I keep it in my purse always, the case of the lipstick has never ditched me and the cap hasn’t ever opened itself, thus ruining the lippie. So, according to me, the tube and cover are fine and safe to carry.
Lovely texture these lippies from Colorbar have. When you apply, they seem to be sufficiently creamy though not too much. But they glide on smoothly on lips without the need of over moisturizing of lips beforehand. And after application, they give a nice creamy matt finish. These are neither too dry nor too creamy so as to bleed.
Yes, all moisturizing lipsticks, creamy ones, bleed on me but this one remains as it is till evening.
Staying Power –
Stays beautifully whole day. Let’s not compare it to MAC’s staying power, as MAC would win. But after that, I have seen only this range of Colorbar to stay that long without creasing or drying up absurdly. You have to remove it with a cleanser or makeup remover to remove the traces else it would never leave your lips J
My Views on Colorbar Creme Cup –
I currently own four shades from this colorbar range and love all. Perfect matt shades yet creamy. I have never experienced any bleeding or smudging. It stays as it is till evening , suffers all snacking, drinking and lunching easily. Removal is an issue as it doesn’t go away easily but that’s why it stays so long!!
The color is perfect as its name – Creme Cup – nudish, soft peach, little brown with pink undertones. It complements my dusky skin complexion very well when applied with proper lining and all. I will show the lip application in both ways – with lip liner (I will put that in swatches too…I don’t have the pic right now) and without lip liner. Looks great both ways. But, I prefer using it with lip liner. And for a lip liner, I mostly use a dark pink lip liner and then apply it all over covering that lip liner too. Else, you can use same colour or some light brown lip liner too. I find this a perfect light shade, an almost nude lip colour for dusky beauties. I know, for dusky skin, we can’t go and buy any nude lippie. This one works for me perfectly.
It doesn’t settle into fine lines and works for my pigmented lips too. It provides a great coverage. I am in totally love with this J.
- Creme Cup is a beautiful nude shade with peach, brown and pink undertones.
- Perfect matt but non-drying with a soft creamy touch. A real velvette matt.
- Not drying for the lips.
- Gives a smooth finish. It doesn’t settle into fine lines.
- Staying power is just awesome. Whole Day!!
- Packaging is fine, travel friendly.
- Covers pigmentation too and gives nice coverage in a single swipe.
- Inexpensive for the quantity and the quality provided.
- Great range of colours – almost 45.
- Easy recognition of colours from see through back.
- Great nude lip colour for dusky beauties.
- May not work for very dry, chapped lips.
- Removal is an issue. This range from Colorbar falls in love with us so much that it doesn’t want to ever part!! But then, who wants a lippie that leaves us on first instance of snacking and remains in patches or stains only, for whole day long.
Overall Rating –
But currently, I am obsessed with this awesome range and I would like to get more and surely would repurchase these. I have four lipsticks from same range of Colorbar and I love all. I would surely recommend this beautiful lip colour to everybody. A perfect nude for me, goes perfectly with Smokey Eyes J.
Do you own one!! If yes, tell me how you like it!!
I would love to know your views J
