Colorbar Definer Lip Liner 002 Rosy Red : Photos, Review, Swatch & LOTD

I do not have many lip pencils and even the few I have really don't get used by me ! Only when I have ample time and if I am going to a place where most people know me as Aarthi of 'A Shopaholic' then I make sure I use almost all products that would enhance my feature and make me look like a Makeup and Beauty blogger :p True, many times I have heard people say "Oh, you don't have any makeup on your face !" So not that I had to get this lip pencil but when the SA tried it on my wrist it looked so gorgeous that I was sold !

Description

The shade was the one that made me buy this lengthy lip pencil. The packaging reminds me of the Lakme Absolute Kohl that comes with a sharpener in the lid. This lip pencil comes with exactly the same kind of sharpener with a lid too ! When the SA swiped it on my hands I could feel how creamy they were. Though the shade was bright and in spite of trying 4-5 shades this one was too attractive for me to skip ! I tried it on my lips too and it didn't look too bright but however when I got one for myself and tried it at home I could see how bright the shade was and I doubt if I would use this at all ! 

Under store lighting it wasn't this bright and as with all SAs even this one seem to have applied it too light on me !! The pencil however enhances my dry lips and while topped with a gloss it looks more reddddddd :( Unlike the name the shade isn't really rosy but an orangish red !

Verdict

I like the lip pencil but two major points put me off - one the super bright shade that looked totally rosy and not so bright in store lighting. I can never wear a shade that is so bright and so orangey reddddddd ! Second it dries my already super dry lips, enhances all fine lines and dryness and makes my lips look more horrible ! I know the price is a bit steep for the quality too but considering the first two points I can ignore it. Get it only if you can carry such bright colors with ease.
