…………….deals with everything feminine, make up and beauty being an integral part

Orange ! A color I could never imagine to include in my wardrobe, as a teenager, let alone wear it on my lips. The thought of the color repelled my taste, but with gradual seasoning of style sense with increasing age has left me craving for this shade, Orange Finally on my lips :)

I am medium/ Olive skinned toned, So some bright colors with in-depth pigmentation put my lips at the risk of looking neon. So to rule this out, I was very careful in choosing the right shade of orange for my skin tone. Last week, I went to an exclusive Colorbar store at Phoenix Market city Mall, Bangalore solely for the shade “Citrine” From Soft Touch Range. When applied it appeared neon on me, I knew it is not for me, disheartened ! The SA of the store came to immediate rescue, she was adept at her job, when she suggested me this shade and was convinced that it is the perfect orange for my skin. Even, I loved the way it made me look, so swiped my card and it was bought :) I just cannot wait to show it to you.

The Shade: A Orange with red undertones, which makes it wearable for a complexion similar to mine. An observation, Oranges with strong Yellow undertones do not tend to suit my skin, they are a obvious neon on me. I guess true Oranges are for Paler skin tones. The color appears similar to MAC “Korean Candy” Lipstick from the online swatches.

The Texture and Finish: Very creamy as goes the name, moisturizing and imparts a very nice sheen to the pout.

The pigmentation: One swipe would do you justice, cover pigmentations if any.

The Lasting: A Good four hours on me without a meal in between, then gradually wears off.

Overall a big YES from me.

One news, I the Store manager told me that Colorbar has discontinued its Velvet Matte Range of Lipsticks, also the prices are hiked to a great extent. The eye pencils cost 440 now, soft touch lipstick cost 390 , This is bad :( .

I have used NYX blush “Mocha” on cheeks and Kohl and mascara on eyes. I kept the look simple :)

Price: INR 450

Summary: Great Shade of Orange for medium Skin tones, Say NC 40 and above ! It has red undertones, which tries its best to make it look less neon.  The texture , finish, pigmentation all are great, infact more than great. Loved it! Thanks Colorbar for making such an awesome shade, which meet up international standards.

Product Score: 5/5
