Hi everyone! Monsoons are full on and my city is receiving a fair share of downpours. I am not too fond of rains unless accompanied by thunderstorms. 😛 Nevertheless the environment is greener and the breeze feels fresher irrespective of being laden with humidity.
I feel even better to find brands launching rain-themed cosmetics, the most prominent of which this season is Colorbar Feel The Rain collection. 🙂 It is a limited edition launch with lip colors and nail paints. Despite the decent versatility of the collection, I took my pick from the four Xposed Lip Color Duos. These are dual ended lip products with lipstick at one end and gloss on the other. I chose the shade 01 Cloudburst (love the name! 😀 ).
Product Description :
Get double-beauty duty with two products in one – Feel The Rain Xposed Lipcolor Duo is an innovative lipstick that has a lip-color and a gloss packaged into one.

The Colorbar Feel The Rain Xposed Lip Color Duo comes for INR 900. There’s 4.5g of the lipstick and 2.5ml of the gloss, which is quite a deal even at 900 bucks! 🙂 The collection is available both online and offline. I bought mine from a Colorbar counter at a Shoppers Stop outlet.
My Overview of the Product :
The most distinctive feature of this collection is its packaging. It is amazing in so many ways! The most notable being the “raindrops” on the box and the body that you can actually feel with your fingers. 🙂 The color of the cardboard box is of a similar shade as the lipstick itself. Impressive yet again! The body of the lip color features the lipstick on one end and the clear gloss on the other. Super compact – to drop in your vanity to carry around, and easy to use. Overall, the packaging feels sturdy and looks beautiful. 🙂
The color Cloudburst is a gorgeous burgundy shade with a full-on matte finish. So perfect for those gloomy evenings when I want to perk up that somber mood. Whereas too much rains and no sunshine gets me glum, this shade sets me good. With its intense burst of color and amazing pigmentation. If you’re not in a matte-mood, dab on some gloss all over the lips or just at the centre. The gloss applicator may feel a bit cumbersome for applying lifting the entire tube, but it does its job well. And you achieve the desired look in no time!
The staying power is pretty impressive as well and with minimal transfers without the gloss. It stains the lip beautifully and never fades off completely. However the matte lip color does tend to settle in the lip lines, so it’s imperative to prep your pouts well. Other than this, I do not find any major cons with the formula. I also love the fact that it is completely free from parabens. 😀
The Final Verdict :
The Colorbar Feel The Rain Xposed Lip Color Duo in 01 Cloudburst is a pretty color to don on the pouts. With its compact and pretty packaging, this product stands out amidst its contemporaries. The shade and the outlook is perfectly themed for the monsoons. The pigmentation and finish is great and the staying power, decent. If you’re looking for a different lip color this season, grab one from the Colorbar Feel The Rain Xposed Lip Color Duos. You can even take your pick from the gel nail lacquers from the same collection featuring bright, vibrant hues. And yes, these are limited edition so get one as long as it’s up for grabs! 😀
My Rating : 4.75/5
(no parabens makes me the happiest!)
