COLORBAR Velvet Matte lipstick in "Addictive Magenta" : Review+Photos

Hello everyone
Today I will be doing a review on one of my current favourite lipstick- Colorbar velvet matte lipstick in "Addictive Magenta"
Before reviewing, I must mention that I never used to be a big fan of Colorbar lipsticks before; but after going through Samyukta's blog I got influenced so badly that nowadays I'm addicted to these lippies too :D
Anyways, lets get back to the review
These lipsticks are priced Rs.225 for net quantity 4.2g
Here are some of it's pictures >

On my lips >

My take on the product : 

>The colour is the first thing that attracted me towards it. It's a perfect fuschia pink!
>The lipstick is so pigmented that one swipe will sufficiently brighten up your face
>This particular shade is suitable for every skin tone
>If your eyemakeup is heavy, you can apply the lipstick as a stain and if your eyemakeup is nude or no eyemakup then you can apply more
>Though its a matte lipstick but in comparison to other matte lipsticks, its not drying.Maybe thats why its named "Velvet" matte 
>The packaging is very attractive.It has a very modern and sophisticated look
>It is pocket friendly too and moreover, you get sufficient quantity(4.2g) at that price
>Colorbar lipsticks are widely popular in India now, so availability is not an issue.But they are so much in demand that many shades are out of stock now.
>You can even add clear gloss on top of it which will give a look of an opaque hot pink colour lipgloss which will be something close to Revlon colorburst lipgloss in Hot Pink
>The colour lasts upto 6 to 7 hours without touchups.It leaves behind a perfect stain even when you eat or drink
>If you have very dry chapped lips then apply a lip balm first and then apply the lipstick

Overall Verdict : Presently I am in love with these lipsticks because they stay for long time and are highly pigmented.I will highly recommend you all to go for this shade and see the magic of colorbar lipsticks.They are worth the money product !
I will rate it 4.9 out of 5 :)
