When I was looking for a lipstick shade that would be perfect for a day event or regular evening wear, I zeroed in on the Colorbar Soft Touch Lipstick in a shade called Seduction. I was looking for a matte lipstick that was a little louder than my regular pastels and pinks and the shade seemed perfect. Here is my review of the Colorbar Soft Touch lipstick shade 021 Seduction.

My experience with the Colorbar Soft Touch Lipstick
I really liked the packaging of the lipstick- sleek steel finish. It does not have any of the waxy smell that comes along with some other lipsticks, and true to its claim, actually smells good.
The colour is a deep brown with maroon undertones. It glides effortlessly on the lips. But do make sure that your lips are not chapped otherwise it will stick out and be a pain on the eye. Scrub your lips well before applying this lipstick. Once you have smooth lips, it takes just one stroke for you to apply this lipstick. Simply glide the lipstick on your lips and then smack together your lips for a smooth finish. One stroke itself gives you a nice deep shade and makes your lips appear fuller. It has a little bit of shine in it but nothing too loud. If you think it is loud, you can tone it down by pressing a tissue on it.
Its rich colour makes it a better choice for the evening. You can also stand apart in the day by teaming it up with a pastel outfit. Once applied, it stays on for a good 3 to 4 hours. You might want to reapply after that. It does prevent the lips from drying out, but you might consider applying some balm before applying the lipstick if you are staying out for an entire day.
The colour does not smear from the Colorbar Soft touch Lipstick and unless tampered with, it is not going to smudge much.
Also, you won’t be suffering from chapped lips or peeling skin after you take off the lipstick since it is really safe on the skin. Just use some olive oil or coconut oil to remove the lipstick before turning in and apply a little extra oil after removal for moisturization to keep your lips soft and smooth.
- Provides moisturization
- It is smooth and creamy
- Gives a rich pigmentation
- Does not smudge
- Makes lips appear fuller
- Does not stay all day, needs reapplication after 3-4 hours.
Overall, I am very happy with the product. My next lipstick purchase will also be from Colorbar only since I think that their products both priced attractively and are of a high quality too.
