Colorbar Kiss Proof Lip Stains Review

See it Through my Eyes
When Colorbar launched these goodies I went bonkers. One, I love Colorbar. Two, I love matte. Three, It’s a lip stain. Four, variety of shades launched. Hence I picked up 3 shades in excitement and no I am not complaining. Let’s get into it.

Packaging
Colorbar products are packed in a signature silver outer paper box packaging. It was no different for these lippies too. The information is all handy on the outer box along with a color coded sticker. But alas! My maid threw away the outer box one bad day. I wanted to kill her :X Anyhoo, the product body is a mix of plastic tube with metallic finsih with a silver screw cap. The body has a see through transparent side through which the color peeps out to tell you, look am red, look am pink and so on Blum 3 Thank you for making it that way Colorbar, things are sorted in my stash since I own three of these. The tube thankfully has the shade name sticker at the bottom, since I have lost my outer box case; this is really helpful Smile The body is travel friendly, sturdy and attractive. Colorbar has taken time and beautifully designed the packaging like always.

The best thing about these stains is the applicator; it is doe foot with an opening in the middle. This opening holds more color once dipped in the tube, this ensures good coverage and even application on the lips, it also ensures minimal dip into the tube, as it carries enough product in that opening. The length of that applicator is standard and helps easy application on the lips.

Texture
The brand calls it a lip stain, but to me these are lip creams *confused* these are highly pigmented liquid lipsticks which apply with ease and give that opaque coverage on the lips. After about a minute of application it completely sets and mattifies into a powder finish. That’s the good, the bad is after a meal, it sort of peels off from the middle part. When I try to refill/reapply on those areas it badly crumbles, so bad that I have to clean the lips altogether and freshly apply the color again. Not happy with that. but, but , but these are definitely transfer proof, if your lip bed is smooth enough Wink please scrub your lips before applying this. Yes you must.

Pigmentation
I am highly impressed with the color pay off. One swipe is enough to bring out the true color and make the lips opaque. Being of liquid consistency I didn’t expect them to be so pigmented, but they definitely are. No complaints in terms of pigmentation.

Shade
Hollywood- This is the ultimate red color ever. I know every red lipstick makes me say this Biggrin  but this one is a show stopper. You must try it to believe it. If there is one shade you should pick from this range, it has to be this one. The perfect matte red shade, that will suit all Indian skin tones to the core. This has no undertones, so no confusion. It is just red. It is a perfect red carpet shade. It will beautifully suit the upcoming Indian festivity period. This is undoubtedly my favorite shade of the entire lot.

Palm Beach- The color is so summery and soothing. It’s a pinky coral peach color which will flatter all skin tones. I have seen my dark wheatish skin toned girlfriend wearing it, it looks amazing on her and also on my medium to fair skin tone. This is a subtle shade for the day time; it doesn’t look too much yet adds that glow to the face. It will look beautiful with a soft pink blush on the cheeks.

Blush Crush- This shade is a hot magenta pink with neon undertones. This is that pink which is apt for occasions and parties, that bright dash of color will give that extra edge to that festive look. This shade is a complete conversation starter. It will suit all skin tones from dark wheatish to fair skin tones. My 2nd favorite from the range.

Staying Power
Once the color sets on the lips it becomes powder matte. It doesn’t budge until you have a heavy meal. It stays on for about 4 to 5 hours. I apply a lip balm first and do the rest of the makeup, at the end I dab the excess lip balm on a tissue and then put the lip stain. This way my lips remain hydrated and don’t feel stretchy which these lip stains tend to do to my lips. The "kiss proof" claim well,why dont you test it yourself? Biggrin
