Colorbar darkened summer collection lipstick shade Reviews : Wild mauve
Hey ladies.. Wassup? So, last Sunday was mother’s day and I and my sister went shopping for the sweetest ladies in my life that is, obviously, our mothers. My sister got a shade in Pink from Rebel range of Maybelline for the Mummy dearest who has a very fair complexion. My mother has a duskier complexion, so, I picked up a shade on mauve from The colorbar darkened summer collection. Read on for more details about this creamy Mauve lipstick.
These lipsticks belong to a limited edition range of Colorbar called the darkened summer collection. This range of lipsticks offers 6 shades in a matte finish. The shades in this range offer to flaunt all skin tones.
Rs 475 for 4.2 grams
Unlike the routine Colorbar lipsticks that come enclosed in Silver cardboard boxes, this one came in a Black cardboard box with some interesting Graphics. These lipsticks were limited edition, I guess. The bullet is silver like regular lipsticks. It is in twist up format and the base has the shade number printed on it. The cap closes with a good fit so, you can carry lipstick with you without worrying that the cap would budge.
Just like all routine colorbar lipsticks, there are no complaints in the department of the texture. The texture of this lipstick is creamy and quite moisturizing to the lips. It is also light weight and non-sticky to wear.
Pros of Colorbar darkened summer collection lipstick shade: Wild mauve
- Travel safe packaging
- Creamy texture that glides totally on lips.
- Shade would suit medium to dusky skin tones really well. I am really not sure about fair skin tones.
- Lasting power is easily 4 To 5 Hours after which it persists as a stain
Cons of Colorbar darkened summer collection lipstick shade: Wild mauve
- To remove it properly from your lips, you need a makeup remover or baby lotion and cotton because it has a tendency to settle into fine lines.
My experience with Colorbar darkened summer collection lipstick shade: Wild mauve
I basically bought this for my mom and the shade looks a bit too loud on me. Still, to review it, I did wear it a couple of times. Texture is creamy and thus hydrating to the lips. In this particular range, there are six different shades available that claim to flaunt all skin tones. I guess these are certain shades in Brown, mauve, peach etc. So, darkened summer collection from colorbar has something to offer for all. These set with a semi matte to matte finish which I feel is good for working women as glossy lip shades look too loud.
The lasting power of this lipstick easily extends up to 4 to 5 hours since; this lip colour is very well pigmented and also has a very good colour payoff. Three swipes and it gives complete coverage to even heavily pigmented lips. You need to outline this to prevent bleeding as being a deeply pigmented shade, it does bleed in summers or outdoors. This transfer to spoons etc while eating so, it does fade a little after you have a meal but does not exactly get removed.

Whether I would recommend the product again?
Yes, but for myself, I would the other shades as this one does not exactly go with my skin tone or liking in particular. Apart from this, texture, lasting power as well as pigmentation of this lipstick is great and this totally justifies the price.
