Colorbar Take Me As I Am Lipstick in Sensuous Red: Review, Swatch and FOTD

Colorbar is a brand that I used to really fond of till like an year back but I don’t seem to have brought anything from the brand since like  a year. This break ended when I decided to try the Take Me As I am Lipsticks. I had actually thought that I was pretty much done with the crayon obsession but I guess I was wrong until I saw these cute pencils on the counter :p.
Price: Rs 800 for 3.9 gms
As I just told you, this lipstick comes in the form of a jumbo lip pencil and comes with a sharpener. The thing that differentiates it form the other lip crayons is that the body of this pencil is wooden and there is a plastic cap to protect the tip. I like how simple the packaging is and I like the fact that the company gives a sharpener with it because it saves me the headache of going out and buying one. The cap stays in place so there is no fear of mess when you carry it around.
The texture of the lip color is quite soft and smooth. The lipstick is pretty creamy so there is no tugging or pulling during application. It settles in a few seconds and gives this rich creamy matte finish. You do have to ensure that you give your lips a little TLC before you apply this shade if you don’t the lipstick will look patchy and settle in the lip lines.
Coming to shade I bought, well if you have are a regular reader you would know I am obsessed with reds and the Take Me As I am range had this gorgeous red called Sensuous Red that I just could not resist buying. Sensuous Red is beautiful and over the top red with orange undertones. If you are into bold lips then trust me you need this shade. I absolutely love how versatile this shade is and how you can wear it with anything and everything. Also, it is one of the most flattering reds I have come across for the Indian skin tones.

In terms of pigmentation, my first reaction when I applied it was “WOW”. The color pay off is amazing and the pigmentation is just crazy. The staying power is as good as the pigmentation so once the lipstick settles it stays on your lips for a good 6-7 hours. 
Here are the swatches
Do you like the heart swatch :p
And here’s how it looks on me
All in all, it is definitely a good lip product and the shade I got is such a pretty one. Everything from packaging, quality, pigmentation and staying power is amazing however it is a little pricey but then again I don’t think anyone minds paying a few extra bucks for a good quality product. I for one do plan to pick another one of these for my makeup trousseau.
