Colorbar Kiss Proof Lip Stain Hollywood, Haute Latte : Swatches, Review


Hey everyone!

Liquid matte lipsticks are all the rage these days and while brands like Anastasia Beverly Hills, Milani, theBalm, Kat Von D, ColourPop etc. have come out with a gorgeous range of colors in liquid mattes, these brands largely remain inaccessible to the Indian market. Colorbar is the first brand to bring the matte liquid lipstick trend to India and I was really excited to try out these Kiss Proof Lip stains!

Colorbar Kiss Proof Lip Stain Review


The Colorbar Kiss Proof Lip Stain comes in a silver tube packaging with a bent applicator inside. The clear band along the length of the tube helps the color of the lip color show through. The lip color has a creamy texture and packs a lot of pigmentation in a single swipe. It applies with a slightly glossy finish but settles down to a matte finish within a minute or two of application. The formula is not too slippery so it doesn’t slide and crease on your lips in that drying time. It has a mild vanilla scent that dissipates a few minutes post application.

Once dry, the formula wears incredibly well! I have tried the liquid matte lipsticks from Sleek and theBalm and found both to be drying on my lips as it to be expected from a true matte formula. But the Colorbar one is actually very comfortable to wear and my lips don’t look shrivelled and parched even after 5-6 hours of wear! As far as the kiss proof claim goes, I’d say its transfer resistant so doesn’t easily transfer to cups etc. but it does come off a little if you rub. The color stays well on the lips for several hours with minimal fading and patchiness due to meals and drinks. It’s definitely one of the most long lasting lipsticks I’ve tried! The color does get a little bit into the lip lines after 6 hours or so but that is to be expected with any pigmented lipstick.

Colorbar Kiss Proof Lip Stain Swatches – Haute Latte, Hollywood


Haute Latte is a browny-pink that would be great on medium to deeper skin. It looks pinker in the first photo but you can see the true color in the video.

Hollywood is a rich red that would be very flattering across complexions. This range has a total of 8 shades.

If you’re looking for a long lasting, liquid matte lipstick in India, Colorbar’s Kiss Proof Lip Stain is an excellent option! The formula is richly pigmented and quite comfortable to wear. It doesn’t dry out the lips even after several hours and that alone makes me want to try out more shades from this range! The range has 8 colors (mostly brights) and I think a couple of nudes and vampy shades would be an excellent addition to the existing lineup!

  1. You look beautiful !! you totally rocking both the shades !! Though little pricey but I am totally sold on Hollywood!

  2. I am just all over these liquid lipsticks with matte finish… I want to try Kat Von D and Milani ones so badly… These look awesome too… I liked Haute Latte 🙂

  3. Hi Ankita,

    The Haute Latte lip color looks lighter in this post than in the video, which one is closer to the true color?
    Also, nail polish details from the video please?

  4. Nice pics Ankita! I tried Colorbar Kiss proof Lip Stain in Hollywood on two occassions frm two different outlets.. but my experience was disasterous. Wel,they dried to a matte finish n colorpay off was good . BUT. after a while.. the thing had transferred all over my face.. my hands.. my cutlery.. everywhere!!! Drugstore or High end, no product should do that. And at the price point, i will not accept this.

  5. Hi Ankita…
    please post your workshop posts and pictures and meet and greetings events pics too!!! one more thing, though m medium toned even then the brown eye liner doesn't show on my.lid. no matter if I go for a smudger brown eye or a singer brown liner, it will not show…if I apply dark, it will appear as if I did a black winged eye…any tips on how the color can show up? I have just tried the lakme eyeconic brown.I ca. try another which u suggest.I love brown eye make up.

  6. I tried Haute Latte at the store today and I loved the texture & everything about it. It is really transfer proof. however the shade made my lips look thin. It much darker in reality than in pics. However I think it is a hard color to photograph because it looks lighter in the pics I clicked of myself too…

  7. Awesome range! To some extent, it soothes the gripe of not getting the Kat Von D and NYX stuff easily in India. Very accurate review! thank you!

  8. This looks pretty on your lips but again i am into creamy ones and scare to try any matte. But now i think i can give this a try. Haute Latte is real good shade.

  9. These flake and crumble after a few hours.Also you missed the most important aspect while reviewing that it's a Pain to reapply them.You can't add a second coat without it looking patchy.I was so excited to finally see a matte liquid product in India but I think I'll wait for the Mac liquid lipsticks to launch in India.Although I've heard they have the same issues as the colorbar ones.
