A Lovely Lipstick for Spring: Colorbar Creme Touch lipstick in N*de Coral: Review and Swatches

What does Spring remind you off?
To me its something like this:

All the vibrant hues take a round in-front of my eyes when I say Spring. (Though I still fail to understand why fall collection is so sombre and dark,when the gloomy weather outside actually demands some pop of colour...Fashion gurus in our blogosphere- Please enlighten me!!)  
Anyways,come spring and we start shuffling vibrant colours in our wardrobes,accessories and even our very beloved makeup stash. Bye bye plums and violets....hallo corals and mints :)
Heading on to the product in question..It is Colorbar Creme Touch Lipstick in Nude Coral.


Company Claims:
Description:
Colorbar Crème Touch Lipstick comes with the promise of lips that are eloquent and luscious. It comes with lovely rich colours and rich in moisturizing properties making lips look fuller and creamier all day long. It has sheabutter, Vitamin E and sunscreen agents at SPF 15 level which nourish and protect your lips against UV rays. It glides on effortlessly for flawless, even coverage for that perfect pout.
Application:
Line the lips with a suitable lip liner. Press the bullet to the lips using even pressure to apply color on both upper and lower lips: To refresh and even out, press lips together. Using a lip brush gives a richer and more precise color application.
Price/Quantity: INR 475/ 4.5gm

Packaging:
Colorbar Creme Touch Lipstick comes in a beautiful lavender and steel finish packaging,with a silver cardboard carton.
I like it when the product itself has its necessary info rather than just the outer box that it comes in,like this one!
Shade: Nude Coral

Aptly named,its coral and yet its subtle. To all those beauties who want to add spring to their makeup but shy away from head-turning shockingly bright corals and orange.......here's where you should land!!! Its a peachy/orangey nude!! Very fresh and summery!!

Texture:

Keep it in the fridge!! I hope you got my point,yesssss its that creamy and moisturising. But then what else would you expect from a Creme Touch lippy. You won't even need the lip balm beneath even if you wanna wear it on dry lips in cold weather.

Staying Power:
Even after being so creamy it stays for a good 3-4 hours on me. I know that's not super-impressive but given the lip butter kinda texture and a shade not so deep,this is more than my expectations. Plus,even when its gone,its not alllll gone. The lips don't look bare even after it has faded!

My Experience:
I often find myself tussling between what kind of lipstcik finish do I really love. Given the fact that I have dry lips (dry skin all over for that matter) I do find moisturising lippies drool-worthy but this Budget Belleza is not the one who would pop up a lipstick from her purse every now and then and apply and re-apply say in the ladies' room,the car,the elevators....leave alone public transports and restros.. So, I like non-drying lippies which stay put for a good amount of time...a.k.a. Creamy mattes.
Leaving the texture liking story back,this
Colorbar Creme Touch Lipstick in Nude Coral is a hydrating fresh lipstick.

My Likes:
  • Good Packaging.
  • Nicely pigmented.
  • Expiry info on the lipstick bullet.
  • Beautiful summery subtle coral shade.
  • Very moisturising.
  • Satisfying staying power.
  • Covers pigmentation well.
My Dislikes:
  • Might melt in summers..needs to be refrigerated.
  • Not travel-friendly..remember might melt!
  • It transfers.
Last Word:
A lovely subdued coral  for fresher looking face!

Repurchase:
I would definitely like to have this shade is my stash always,but I would search a dupe of this in a less buttery texture.

Over All Rating: 4/5
