Beauty and all the glam products associated with it, can be tricky tricky! More than anything, it seems every big, trusted beauty brand comes with a hefty price tag, and praise the lord, we’re not that desperate for the aesthetic help. Or so we tell ourselves. Also, most are designed for white skin, and let’s face it; we need someone to understand our skin tone as well.

We do believe we’ve stumbled upon a certain brand that delivers it all, including price tags that don’t make you balk. But don’t let us colour your judgement, leave the entire colour to all the brand new products you’re going to buy yourself from Colorbar. When we made our way to the Colorbar store, what we really enjoyed {besides the copious amounts of make-up and shades of it}, was the attention to the nails. The option of choosing between 200 colours for the nails? Yes, please!


Let’s start at the beginning, of your beauty routine that is. Colorbar has launched a high-performance, pre and post make-up skin care range that preps you for flawless skin, and also cleanses, tones, treats and moisturises. Now that the base is set, allow us to take you through the other products we’re digging!

The lightweight foundation sat well on our skin, and since there were a team of us, the suitability across skin tones was obvious. Since we need powder to seal the deal, we sampled the Perfect Match Compact, and we weren’t disappointed with the fresh, au naturel finish.

The Cheekillusion Blush resembled a lovely natural flush, and was also perfect for Indian skin tones. Lightweight, with excellent blending power and complete with a velvety finish, best news yet, is its lasting power. Since we know you ladies, and your affinity for kajal, lo and behold their recently launched ‘Just Smoky Kajal’. Now we know it takes a certain something to master the smoky eye, but until we learn, its super useful to have a kajal that triples as an eye liner, kajal and eye shadow, complete with a smudger, and available in five different shades. Damn right. We love how {almost} easy it is to replicate the perenial smoky eye at home.


All we have left now, is mastering the perfect pout {how else will those selfies work}. Which brings us to the lipsticks. With an exhaustive range of shades and textures to match, there’s everything from lipsticks to glosses. As for shades, they have everything from the barest of nudes and pastels, to the brightest trending pop colours. We’re particular fans of the newly launched ‘Ultimate 8 Hrs Stay Lipstick’, which we can guarantee, lives up to its name, even after drinks, air kisses, and meals. Since we’re all for maximum mileage from our products, we recommend The Deep Matte Lip Crème, not only for its texture, but also because it doubles as a blush on.


If you’re in the market for a beauty buy pressie, the Colorbar nail kits literally nail it. The Tentalize Nail Kit, equipped with ten shades, has already made its way to friends with an affinity for their nails.

Did we also mention how much we love the Colorbar packaging? Makes us Pink of You {also one of their nail polishes we love right now}.
