Colorbar Velvette Matte Shy Cherry: Reviews, swatches, Pictures

Hey Everyone,

Here's a review of another shade from colorbar's velvette matte range i.e Shy Cherry. I've reviewed the Peach Crush from this range.

Price: Rs. 275/-
Quantity: 4.2g

My Take: 

Velvette Matte range is a quite popular range from the house of colorbar and people are loving it lately. The range has a huge shade selection from pinks, oranges, corals, reds, nudes to browns. The range serves every skin tone. The range has 47 shades to choose from.
The formula is smooth, creamy and intensely pigmented. Glides smoothly on lips and doesn't tug. It does not bleed or feather. It has a pleasant vanilla faint which i like. Even the heavily pigmented lips can get a full coverage in the second swipe. One should have well exfoliated lips before wearing this as it may cling to the dry flakes on the lips as the formula is quite drying. Better option is to apply a layer of lip balm underneath. (I can't carry this formula without a lip balm). It doesn't settles into the fine lines but it  does emphasizes them after a few hours of application.
For the initial 2-3 hours it stays into a satiny finish after which it sits into a complete matte finish. As the name indicates, it looks velvetty matte on lips when freshly applied. It can survive for a good 7-8 hours without getting patchy and a slight fading even with heavy meals and plenty of sips of water in between after which it leaves a strong stain on lips which has to be removed with a make-up remover.
Though the formula mildly drying i still love it and would definitely recommend this to everyone. And yes, it does transfer to the cups but very slightly because the formula is bit satiny.

The shade shy cherry is a deep cherry red shade with hint of pink into it. The shade is very pretty and would suit fair to medium complexions and i think this is a flattering shade for duskier beauties too. The shade is perfect for festive make-ups, and parties. You can also wear it as a stain  by using a lip brush for everyday use. I would recommend this shade for medium-fair skin tones.
