Colorbar is quite popular in India for their awesome eye pencils and lipstick range. Most of us have at one point of time encountered upon this very cost effective brand which offers a great makeup range. I first tried their Velvet Matte Range and was so overwhelmed by their performance that I have bought more that 3 of them. This Colorbar I glide pencil in the shade ‘Jaded’ is one of their top sellers and are very often out of stock both online and at counters. Luckily I have this with me and am very happy because I got it.
Well Colorbar I glide pencils come in many some very beautiful and vibrant shades like Flirty Turq, Blackout, Cocobar, Glowing Sapphire, Electra, Silver Hue, Coal mine, Passionate Gold, Prunella, Amethyst Spark. While I am totally sold on blues I see they seldom look good on me, so I tried this one. This is a true ‘Jade’ shade and will suit most Indian skin tones. I’m fair to medium and it suits me quite well.
The product comes in a metallic colour packaging with the shade name and color indicated on the opening. The ingredient list and other details are given on the box. The pencil comes in a metallic packaging with a silver colour cap to help it protected. The pencil’s end is color coded so that you can find it easily in a bunch.
The product is very smooth and glides on the lids without any kind of tug or pull. One swipe is enough to give you intense color. If you want to make it more intense you can layer it. But for me one swipe is enough. And after a few seconds the liner settles on your lids and then it’s waterproof and I have seen it stay nearly the whole day without any flaking or smudging.
The color intensity does fade after nearly 8 hours but the color stays put and only after a few swipes of the makeup remover it gets removed completely. On my waterline where some great pencils have failed, it stayed 4 hours (Wow!!!) and did not irritate my eyes.
So those looking for a great pencil that will stay till you are plain bored of it then look no further. These come in some cool shades and give great performance.
