Colorbar Take Me As I Am Lip Color in Lip Smacking Cherry 004 Review, Swatch & LOTD

Ever since Colorbar launched the Take Me As I Am Lip Colors I wanted to try them but unfortunately none of the H&G stores near my place had this. Even the Colorbar SAs had no idea when I asked them for this lip color. I was eyeing on 2 shades and luckily Pree was planning to put them on sale, which she had hardly used. I told her I'll buy both of them and I got it finally :D


Description

This thick fat lip pencil looks like a crayon and smells like a crayon too. Once my daughter saw me using this and from then on she started rubbing her crayon on her lips !! The smell is something bad and unusual. Once I rub it on my lips it feels like a lip cream with good color pay off. This particular shade is a pretty pink with blue undertones. It looks different in different lighting - fuchsia, berry, etc. This one shade will compliment almost all skin tones. 




Likes
  • The Lip color is creamy.
  • Glides on smoothly on my dry lips too.
  • Well pigmented.
  • Hydrates my lips and never my lips have felt dry.
  • Comes with a free sharpener.
  • I don't think I can ever finish this up as it has so much product !
  • Totally available in 8 shades.
  • Stays on me for 3 hours.



Dislikes
  • It smells like a crayon or plastic and that it very irritating. However the smell subsides over time.
  • Availability is an issue here in Chennai :(



Price

The cost of Colorbar Take Me As I Am Lip Color is Rs.699 for 3.94 g.


LOTD

Verdict

A good buy if you don't mind the smell. I personally like this shade and it is one shade that will suit most Indian skin tones. I like how it keeps my lips hydrated and thus I don't feel bad re-applying it again and again. The sharpener that comes along really makes the sharpening job easy.

    2. Oh yes I know that feeling! I have a little cousin. Who wants top pouf up her hair if I have, She wants to eat in a bowl like mine. She sits like me. It was cute initially but then I started to freak out! I dint want to, unintentionally set the wrong example! Now she's older and I can handle it. :P

  10. Aiyoo, Neya kutti is too cute to handle! Love your reviews Aarthi! When I walk into H&G or Angels to get anything make-up related, I feel like a Samba deer among tigers - seriously! They just pounce on me! The only place where I can try out stuff without getting attacked is The Body Shop! Since you review new products, it makes my search narrower and that's a good thing in the jungle! Hehe!
