Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick All Fired Up: A Red Lipstick
By Contributor: Aarvi Sharma
I was looking for a red lipstick since forever under 300bucks and my hunt ended with Colorbar USA – All Fired Up. I fell in love with this lipstick with the first swatch. Its creamy in texture and gives a matte finish but has this pink undertone to it. It’s a lovely color and I am kinda obsessed with it now. I want to wear it every day!
It does not feel heavy on your lips when you wear it since the texture is smooth and light. Also, it is a lot pigmented. It gives a creamy yet matte finish. The shade looks so rich on the lips. When you feel lazy apply just one swipe of all fired up with winged cat eyeliner, a little blush and you are set to go. This lipstick is great for those lazy days when you don’t feel like wearing much makeup, but still want to stand out.
Red is a bold color to carry and red lips indicate your confidence and dominance. In early days I was not confident enough to wear red lip shades. And this is a perfect lipstick to start off with. I started with this red lipstick and now I feel confident enough to wear red lipsticks everyday! This shade is somewhat in the same degree with MAC ruby woo lipstick. (For a cheaper price)
Some “Bold” and Tempting points:
- It is super duper pigmented.
- Price is very reasonable.
- Does not bleed, smear or smudge.
- It has a smooth and creamy texture being matte.
- It never feels heavy.
- Nice silver-transparent packaging. The shade colour at the bottom helps you to find it in your stash.
- Staying power up to 4 to 5 hours
- Just one swipe and you are done. The colour is THAT intense.
Some Repelling points:
- Well I couldn’t think of any major cons. But yes only one thing, it’s not a true red shade. It could give the appearance of slightly pinkish red in different lights.
Price: Rs.275 (I got it for 250, they raised the price recently but still you can buy it online for 250 or less)
Verdict: I’d LOVE to buy Colorbar All Fired Up again. It’s a great lipstick for this price range. If you are planning to buy a red lipstick with a humble budget, try out this one. You won’t be disappointed.
Comparable to MAC ruby woo lipstick, but this one comes with a pink undertone to it. Keep that in mind. Great lipstick for beginners.
Editor: Yep with the speed Colorbar is increasing its prices, everything is FIRED UP! Btw I’ve compiled a complete list of red lipsticks which flatter the medium to dark asian skin: 10 Best Red Lipsticks for Indian Skin. Seems like we need to update it!
