My take on the Matte Touch Lipstick ‘Legendary’:
A new launch yet again from one of my favorite brand ‘Colorbar’ and this time they added 6 new shades in their ‘Matte touch range’ of lipsticks but with a different out cover that fall under the name of Darkened Summer. I had picked 1 lipstick from their Matte touch range couple of months back and loved the shade and texture a lot so even without any available swatches online, I grabbed 1 color from this new range called Legendary.
Shade: Legendary is a pretty bold maroon color with strong brown undertones. A great color to go with your ethnic wear for the coming Diwali. It is a shade suitable on all skin tones easily and can be a nice color for the fall. I personally prefer such shades all the year round. It’s quite an easy to wear color and can be applied as a stain or with full effect depending on a day/night look.
Texture: Legendary falls under the Matte Touch lipstick range from Colorbar. Although being matte, it is creamy and goes on nicely n the lips. The color won’t bleed or feather. It stains a bit but looks nice and fades away evenly too. The lipstick does not settle in fine lines nor does it dry out the lips further.
It has a great pigmentation and 1-2 wipes gives a lovely color on the lips. Though the lipstick is not drying still being matte it may accentuate the dry/chapped lips so better exfoliate the lips and apply it.
Colorbar Darkened Summer Matte Touch Lipstick “Legendary” Swatch:
Staying power: The lipstick stays on for a good 4 hours with a full mal in between. With light snacks, it can stay on for 5-6 hours at a stretch. Pretty impressive longevity here.
Packaging: The lipstick comes housed in the similar silver packaging but with a dark outer cover that signifies the Darkened summer collection. No color indication is present on the metallic silver case so difficult to judge if you have similar lipsticks. Rest the lipstick has not shown any sign of melting or breakage but can’t be sure in the hot summers for it.

Review by Nids
[alert-note]Yet to try this range from Colorbar. The finish looks good, but the color are very common I feel. This would make a great all year round shade for Indian skin tone. Not too deep and not too light. Looks lovely on you Nidsy! Great review! 🙂 <3 [/alert-note]
