Colorbar Take Me As I Am Vs Inglot AMC + Dare Bare Pink Swatch And Review
Call them the Indian version of Clinique Chubby Sticks or Inglot AMC Lip Pencils, Colorbar launched them! (Thanks again for launching Crackle) I am never a person who like lip color in stick because of the color that gets wasted while sharpening but when I saw them, I thought – what the harm in trying them once?
How I felt about them?
Everyone knows the pros and cons of a stick lipcolor. So I am not gonna talk about that. I am more concerned about it being compared with the Inglot ones. So, I will do that for sure.
Clinique chubby sticks are something that I am not getting whatever be it as they are very sheer. I am not blessed with nice lips that can look good with sheer colors. I need strong pigmented colors. The one left here is Inglot AMC. Well after my experience with their matte formula with Inglot 401 lipstick (reviewed HERE) I was skeptical with the AMC formulas. On top the Inglot ones are super matte.
* Availability *
Inglot – Only their stones and online
Colorbar – Only their flagship stores and few stores which stocked them (I found them at Karol bagh in some shop opp Bata)
* Formula *
Inglot – Matte drying formula. I tried them once at store and I felt I can never make it work without a balm. Anyone with dry lips will definitely have issues applying it. On top of it I found people mentioning that it settled in lines.
Colorbar - Matte non-drying formula. Initially I thought it will melt but then it didn’t. On top of it, I applied it daily for 2 weeks to finish the first sharpened cone (I hope I am making myself clear here) but I couldn’t. So this is gonna last.
* Stay *
Inglot – I have not actually used it on my lips (just tried them at store) so, cannot comment.
Colorbar – Easily 5 hours on me. No dryness. No flakiness. No heavy feeling on lips. I never required a lip balm or gloss with this.
* Variety *
Inglot – I think they have around 23 shades. Someone please correct me with the exact number available in India.
Colorbar – Only 8. You might not end up with the ONE you wanted. Check out the other Swatched HERE

* Price *
Ahem..ahem..now this is something which is repeatedly discussed whenever Colobar TMAIA is talked about.
Inglot – 680 INR for 3.8 gm. So, you pay about 179 for each gm of the color. You might need to buy additional sharpener just for this pencils.
Colorbar – 699 for 3.94gm . So you 177 for each gm which is same as Inglot but you get the sharpener for free.

All in all I am happy with it because it’s matte but still doesn’t dries my lip. Gives full color in just a single swipe. Does not melt and surely will last long.
