Matte lips is one of my favorite and this year it seems to be in trend. Every brand is coming up with its own version of matte lip products ranging from the traditional lipsticks to generation next liquid lipsticks. In between lies lip crème which we never got to experience from brands available in India. I am happy to see that Colorbar has set their bar higher by introducing matte lip crème collection.
This is not one of a kind product, NYX, Sephora, Bite and Ulta are few of the brands which already offer lip crèmes. This is a huge moment because now Colorbar that is easily available in India also has its own range. *whoop whoop!!
An ultra-silky, virtually “weightless” texture that unveils unexpected moussy finish with impeccable high pigmentation color for high coverage effect.

My Take on the product:
The matte lip creme comes in a transparent tube that is narrower at the bottom and gets wider towards the cap. I don’t understand the logic behind moving away from the standard straight tube, which in my opinion would have been better.
Matte lip cremes are unique in texture, they are silicone-y which glides easily on the lips and the dries to matte finish within couple of minutes. Matte necessarily does not mean drying and this would be perfect formula which represent non dying matte lip product. There are many who have compared it to NYX soft matte lip creme. Unfortunately I can’t share my opinion on that as I have never used this specific product from NYX.
Although Colorbar claims up to eight hours of wear time, on me the lip creme lasted for about four hours and then faded beautifully leaving a hint of color on my lips. There is no need to wear lip liner underneath, but adding it will increase the wear time by about an hour. With or without lip liner they do not feather or bleed, but are easily transferable.
Overall Rating: 4.8/5
Colorbar Deep Matte Lip Crème is a must have for me. If you do not have lip creme from any brand than definitely go for it. They are pigmented, lightweight and non drying matte product which is like all good things combined in one.
PS: The shade that I have is Deep Coco.
