I am totally in love with the brand – Colorbar. I have already reviewed their Eyeshadow – green stroke. I don’t know why they are not in the high-end side despite being superior in quality. The first eye pencil I bought from them is the Cocoabar shade which is a dark matte brown. It has become my staple eyeliner for the upper lids whenever I don’t want any intense color on my eyes. Being impressed with it, I bought the shade Jaded too but I didn’t notice that it was a shimmery green when the SA gave me the swatch. It’s neither teal or olive but a bright forest green which is not a bad shade at all. But I had expected a black mixed green so a bit disappointed with my buy. No problem, I use it also regularly on my upper lids. Then my one friend gave me a website link showing the shade Prunella, which is a beautiful Purple shade which is of matte finish. I bought that one too and was very much impressed by it.So let me show you all the three eye pencils together. They come in a silver box which is the same style of packing by Colorbar for all it’s products. Sorry for not including that picture.
What colorbar claims :
- Extremely soft and outstanding smooth formula almost like a liquid liner.
- Easy to blend shortly after application.
- Waterproof, super long wear, no transfer and smudge proof.
I can say that all these claims are true along with another that the pigmentation is fantastic.
The complete ingredient list is given on the cover but I am lazy to type all those! Lolz 😀
Shelf life is 3 yrs. Price 399INR for 1.1g.
The pencils are not very long like from MAC or other brands but not very short also. One thing I noticed is that they have to be sharpened after every use since it gets used up very quickly due to it’s creamy texture
Now the swatches
I will definitely give this a rating of 4.5 but 0.5 reduced for the product wastage while sharpening. Anyways for me I like my makeup products to finish fast rather than getting expired before getting used up fully.
