I am off late much attached to matte lipsticks. With the winter approaching-I was wondering if I could get a lipstick that doesn’t make lips look like sand dunes with all the lines all the more visible-but somehow-thanks to Maybelline and its longtime pampering of cream finish lipsticks-I am really really on the hunt for good matte lipsticks from any good brand out there. Well, what caught my net in my first skim through stores is the Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick.

What the Website says about these lipsticks:
For a rich lip colour with a creamy shine, the Velvett 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 keep them nourished with Vitamin E. Staying on up to 5 hours on application, the Velvett Matte Lipstick can be further accentuated with lip gloss and lip liner.
I am a sucker for peachy coral shades and no wonder I pounced on this one on the very first time the SA at the store swatched it :D This according to me a brilliant shade-something that will suit everyday use-and whats more –It can give an instant makeover to the everyday look even with just minimal eye makeup. Moreover-although the finish is a perfect matte-it does not dry lips at all. The best feature is its staying power-it stays beyond meals- afeature which I have so far hardly found in any other lipstick! Overall-I dint need a single retouch on a normal working day-after I applied it in the morning with some lip liner. The last smile is off course of the unbeatable price-you wont get another matte lippy of this quality at this price I suppose!!! And there are extremely pretty shades available for everyone to choose from-God knows why I am still not running for the second one :D
1) It gives a great matte finish-and does not dry lips at all
2) Wonderful staying power-It survives tasty meals :D
3) Great variety of colors available
4) Awesome pricing at 225 INR
5)This particular shade is great for everyday wear and will suit almost all skin tones
Nothing-only that some stores do not have all the pretty shades :(
