Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick - Creme Cup 078

I have MAC creme cup and reading name I decided to pick this up too. Adding another nu*e shade in my collection. But its more peachy-pink than a nu*e shade.

Company Claims VELVET MATTE LIPSTICKS

For a rich lip colour with a creamy shine, the Velvett Matte Lipstick, available in stunning shades infuse the lips with vibrancy. Its unique 2-in-1 formulation gives the lips a creamy, yet matte finish. A one of a kind product in India, it has super softening agents that give the lips a soft and supple appearance while keep them nourished with Vitamin E. Staying on up to 5 hours on application, the Velvett Matte Lipstick can be further accentuated with lip gloss and lip liner.
Packaging- Silver-transparent stick form lipstick. with see through cap and matching shade bottom.

Coming to color I am bit confused about this shade, its mixture of peach, brown and pink. 

Though its matte but finish is glossy, non-drying. Layered to build up color. This shade will suit most of skin tones. Coverage is excellent, just one swipe and you have opaque lips and with each swipe colors get darker. In day light its brown and reddish. 



At night it looks pink-peach. In flash light a nu*e pink. Fair girls can layered and make it a darker shade for them and darker beauties can have a peach-pink lip shade which will complement their complexion. This shade will not wash out any one. 

 It stays for 4 hours and let me warn you it strains badly and leaves a pink shade behind. I swatche it on arm and use my makeup remover to remove this but still I could see strain behind. 


Total paisa wasool shade. Fragrance is standard Colorbar lipsticks smells- vanilla types.
