Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick Obsessed Orange

 By Contributor: Shruti Gupta

Are oranges named orange because they are orange or is orange called orange because oranges are orange? Tell tell. Hahaha!

Today I will review and swatch this orangy orange lipstick from my favourite lipstick range available here in India. I am kind of obsessed with this range. The best part being the affordable price and the quality you get. Being on budget sucks big time but there are a lot of color options in this range and I am going to buy more of these. There is something for everyone. I will keep on going gaga about it..aah! Chuck it, should start with the review. I am a blabbering machine and once I start, there’s no stopping me. Ok I’ll shut up now.

Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick Obsessed Orange

Obsessed orange is true to its name. It’s as orange as Fanta or hanumanji ka tikka or an orange ice cream lolly. When I wear this shade in college, everybody is like “tikka maathe ki jagah lips pe laga liya kya?”. Ohh common people, shut up! People get used to it cuz’ I ain’t gonna stop wearing it. It is a unique color and I think no other brand has such a pure bright true orange shade.

The pigmentation is not as good as other shades from this range so you would need to apply 2-3 coats to get the full intense color. It tends to settle in fine lines after a while. I think it will suit all indian skin tones.

Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick Obsessed Orange Review

The lipstick is more moisturising than others from the same range. I don’t apply lip balm with it. It glides on easily and stays upto 4-5 hours without any meals. It fades away evenly leaving a very very light tint. The only thing I don’t like about it is that it requires touch ups after meals.

It has got a fragrance. I don’t know what kind of smell, but I like it. Some people might not like it.

It comes in a silver casing with a transparent cap which snaps shut with a click. There is a color representation at the bottom of the lipstick for easy identification. I read somewhere that this portion of the lipstick can be detached and there is actual lip color in there. Is it true?

Let’s check the photos and swatches:

Pros of Colorbar Obsessed Orange Lipstick:

  • True orangey orange shade like fanta!
  • It glides on super smoothly on lips
  • Its non-drying on lips and infact moisturising
  • Budget friendly
  • Stays upto 5-6 hours easily

Cons of the Velvet Matte lipstick:

  • Needs touch ups after meals
  • Not as pigmented as I would like it to be. But goes opaque in 2-3 swipes
  • Has got this coconuty fragrance. I like it but some girls may not

Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick Obsessed Orange

Price: Rs 275

VNA Rating: 4/5

Will I re-purchase it? Hell yeah!

Recommendation: Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick Obsessed Orange is a true bold orange which is quite eye catching but not neon. Its semi matte and glides on super smoothly on lips and you don’t need a lip balm with it. Although it needs touch ups after meals but I don’t mind it. I love it for being budget friendly and I totally suggest it for college girls who can’t afford Mac.
