Review: Colorbar Soft Touch Lipstick Rose quartz

Hello everyone , today I will review Colorbar soft touch lipstick Rose Quartz.

What the company claims about the product -
Give your lips a soft and smooth look with the Soft Touch Lipstick. Its rich creamy formula enhances the lips, while keeping them moisturized and nourished. With Vitamin A and E and apricot oil, the Soft Touch Lipstick has anti-aging properties that protect the lips from chapping and discoloration. With a unique fig fragrance, the Soft Touch Lipstick is available in classy shades.

Price:INR 325 for 4.2gm


Lip Swatch

My experience with the product-
. The lipstick is soft, smooth and creamy, it glides on very easily.
Despite its matte finish, it feels moisturizing and softening on the lips .It is a very natural finish, neither too matte, nor too creamy.
Rose Quartz is pretty berry pink shade. It adds glow to the face.

Soft and cremy texture , easy to apply.
Nice pigmentation
Good staying power.
Would suit most Indian skin tones.
Easily available both online and offline
Attractive packaging.

The mild fruity smell, but that goes off after a while.

Do I recommend this product?
Oh yes definitely, especially in winters when you want a instant glow on your face !Also this would suit most Indian skin tones.

Rating- 5/5

Outfit: Blazer and Scarf

They say you live your life your once ,then why not enjoy joy every moment of it ! If their is any phase of life that I want to relive then that would be childhood, those were the best days of my life !! I never had to worry  about anything , mom took care of everything :) Taking swings was the best childhood memory , I still remember waiting for the clock to tick 5pm and I go out meet my buddies and take swings. Till today when I  see swings I look around and grab a chance to relive my old days.Today I met a old friend and we met for lunch , grabbed chole bhature , the ideal punjabi punch if you ask me ...heheheheee.... Their are certain dishes which I can have at any hour , one of them is this !

Post lunch we decided to take a walk at the park and when I saw the swings I just could not resist !!

Outfit: Horse print dress with blazer

I generally love teaming my dresses my dresses with blazers and stockings in winters. I think this is the best way to utilize the dresses in winters ! In a city like Delhi we experience extreme climates...It going to get very cold here in Delhi soon , so before that happens I grabbed the opportunity to wear my dress with blazer.
Also its the first time I did complete smoky eyes , I think its the makeup that inspired me to wear this dress.

Dress- from Sarojni Nagar

Recent Makeup Haul

November has been a good month for me , series of events happen in this month including my parents birthdays and our anniversary. We celebrated our 4th anniversary last week and realized we have come a long way together....I still recall the days when I met hubz at Japanese class .....Now don't ask me about my Japanese language skills , I have totally forgotten everything.

Just when I felt that I want to do some makeup shopping Myntra.com gave me a voucher to shop from  their beauty section. God I should have asked for something more. Hope I am not sounding greedy.

Lately I have started liking fall colors and wanted to get a makeup dose of it , also wanted to try Biotique cosmetics line so ended up picking a oxblood lipstick and nailpaint.
