Lip definer as the name say that this pencil is used to define lips as well as they hold your lipstick for longer time. I have purchased colorbar lip definer pencil when I have visited India last November. I liked two shades from same range which was berry rose and rosy red. I loved this shade when I swatched them at the store as this colors were nicely pigmented. So, without wasting any further time lets get started with the review tour-

Ingredients-

My Experience with Colorbar Lip Definer in shade Rosy Red and Berry Rose-

This lip liners are packed in silver cardboard long rectangular box with details mentioned on it like ingredients, their claims, name of the product, expiry date written with black color makes its impressive. On the top of the packaging they have mentioned the color sticker with name which resembles color inside. Pencil comes in sleek and long with color coded at the bottom which resembles the liner color inside plus the silver things embossed on black body of pencil make the liner looks pretty as well as sexy. The best part of liner is the cap which has pencil sharpener on the top so, as and when you require you can point your liner also you don’t have to carry extra sharpener. As the cap comes off easily so this lip liner is not travel friendly but if you wish to carry then pack it in plastic pouch so that it does not ruin or spoil your other stuff.

The texture of the color is matte as well as creamy which glides smoothly on lips. The formula is good and does not break while defining the lips which I really liked it. Pigmentation wise the lip definer is nice but not highly pigmented so if you want a nice amount of pigmentation you need to glide the pencil twice thrice on your lips. In case if your lips are dry apply some lip balm before so, that it does not hurt your lips.  The shade which I have choose for me is Rosy red and Berry Rose.

Rosy Red- It’s a nice warm orangish red shade which is suitable for any skin tone or color. Though I didn’t see any rosy or rose hue in the shade.

Berry Rose- It’s a bright fuchsia pink color perfect for winters and for everyday use. Again, suitable for all skin tone. Though the name say berry, but I didn’t fount any hue of berry in this shade

When I applied lip liner on my lips I found that the application was smooth, creamy and glided easily on lips inspite having matte finish plus its very light weighted on lips. I did not notice any dryness or flakes after application of lip liner. The staying power of this pencil is less not more than 4- 5 hours for me (honestly) also it depends on whether you eat or drank something or not in between and then slowly start fading.  The liner fades evenly leaving a tint of color behind it which don’t look bad until and unless you have a cracked lip of lines which can make it look little weird. Though they claim its smudge proof and waterproof but in reality, the liner get smudged and is slightly transferable on things. This shade are nice replacement for high end lip liners so can always choose them if you have a money constraint.

Overall, I liked the colorbar lip definer as they are perfect for Indian skin tone. The color I have chosen Rosy red and Berry rose are perfect for any women with different undertones or color. Application is smooth, creamy and matte on lips plus it glides easily on lips filling all the lines and flakes. Compared to the high-end lip liner in market I think this brand is perfect replacement. You can enjoy lip liners with some shimmery or clear gloss on top of it which most of the time I prefer to do. The price they have charged for this lip liner is justified for the quality they have given plus a sharpener attached to it is an add on and value for money. Hence, Recommended.

Pros-

  • Nice and sturdy packaging
  • Smooth, creamy and matte texture
  • Nicely pigmented
  • Does not dry out lips
  • Glides smoothly on lips
  • Light weighted on lips
  • Does not pull lips during application
  • Suitable for every skin tone
  • Inbuilt Sharpener makes your task easy on a go
  • Loved orangish red and fuchsia pink shade

Cons-

  • Pricey but for me it’s okay
  • Staying power is less
  • Do transfer on things as well as get smudged.

Will I buy this product again?

Maybe.
