Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick - Obsessed Orange

Colorbar USA has certainly raised the bar when it comes to their Velvet Matte lipstick range. The colors are true to their names - from soft nudes to bright bold lippies. And there is a wide variety to choose from for any and everybody tastes.
My foray into this range was with the Obsessed Orange shade. The craze about Orange started off last year when Pantone declared it the Color of the Year 2012. So, me being a person who had never owned a cosmetic in any shade of orange, started hunting down the best and the brightest among them and landed on this. Was this worth the buy?

It is encased in a silver tube, with a see through clear plastic cap bearing the name Colorbar. The shade name is on a label at the bottom.

The color is a true-to-its-name Orange. No shimmer, no shine, just pure matte opaque Orange. There are no hints of any undertones - no pinks, browns, or reds. A single swipe delivers great pigmented product.  There is a slight lustre to it which looks pretty.

My disappointment is with regards to its slightly drying nature. Although its not as drying as a true matte lippie, it tends to dry out after a while. I wear this color with a clear lip balm. It eases up the color, makes it slightly sheerer which works just fine for me, as I do not like my lips looking heavy and deep. It does have a con, though: it tends to transfer easily.

Although it is a very bright and fresh orange-y shade, it is quite wearable so those of you who haven't tried any bold lipsticks yet and are looking to start with a great orange color, then this one is a great buy. It works as a great summer color. 

Price: INR 250
Recommendation: Yes! Quite the budget buy!
