I am here again to review a very pretty shade from the colorbar velvet matte range named hot hot hot . Actually, i already had the red shade from this range called all fired up but i dropped it and it got broken so that`s why i was in the search of finding a new red shade when i come across this lippie which is hard to resist. Colorbar velvet matte lipstick in the hot hot hot shade is really hot as its name, the bright red color. It is so highly pigmented. This should be in the collection of someone who is a fan of red lipsticks. Also, the price is so affordable for such a beautiful color. Red goes well with any outfit, be it western, indian or indo-western, on any ocassion and for any age group too. These days reds and corals are in fashion for summers.
This lipstick as like other colorbar velvet matte lipsticks comes in a standard metallic silver case with a transparent cap. The bottom part has the color coded shade which helps to differentiate shade easily in your make up vanity. The shade name and quantity is written on the back of the bottom part. The tip of the lipstick is slightly slanted and makes it easy to apply on the lips.
This shade is also highly pigmented and will cover darker lips too. One swipe is sufficient to have the full color. The texture is smooth and creamy and dries out to matte finish after an hour or so but it doesn`t tend to dry out the lips. It settles into a semi-matte finish, I would say. The lips will feel quite hydrated as if it is freshly applied. After a couple of hours, it leaves a tint behind which may not be liked by all but i like it as it looks as if i have some color on my lips. But ya, one will require a nice quality makeup remover to remove it completely.
It is a true red shade which is really bold to carry. But it looks very beautiful on lips. Someone who is in the search of a red color with no other undertones to it like blue, pink, or corals will love it. This is a nice red color to begin with. This is the color which will suit from fair skinned beauties to medium and to dark skinned as well. This appears to be a wedding shade to me as it goes pretty well with any red dresses like red suits, sarees and even gowns these days which too are in fashion. A single swipe in enough for the full color and if required one may go for more. It stays on my lips about 5-6 hours with meals in between and after that it tends to fade a little so i can reapply if i need so. I love this shade like my previous one all fired up.
Final Verdict :
IThis is a very nice red shade for people who loves red. It is insanely pigmented, staying power is also nice and its low price also comes as an attraction. This shade will suit to almost all skinned beauties. The texture is creamy matte and provides moisturization to the lips too. The only con is the stain it leaves behind and little smell which may not be liked by sensitive noses. Otherwise, It is a Go and Grab like shade.
