I’m someone who isn’t an expert in makeup. Although I have an interest as well as access to a wide variety of cosmetics, I use only the most basic stuff, mostly because I don’t really know how to use many of the products that are available in the market today. Honestly, I’m impressed with those people who can pull off a perfect and flawless look in what seems like minutes!
Eyeliner is one of those simple make up items that I have somewhat managed to get the hang of in recent years and so it is one of the few things which gets over quickly in my vanity box. I’ve been on the hunt for a good and affordable eyeliner for quite some time when I came across the Ultimate Eyeliner from Colorbar. I’ve tried several brands in the past such as Lakme, Revlon, Maybelline, Benefit and L’Oreal but till now I didn’t get a chance to check out products from Colorbar. Having heard a lot about the quality of this brand I decided to give it a shot and promptly placed an order for the Ultimate Eyeliner from Colorbar in Black on Jabong.
I was travelling in a few days and I was worried if the eyeliner would reach me in time but thankfully it was deliver within a couple of days. Note that this was also the first time that I was ordering from Jabong and I must say that I am quite pleased with their service.
The Ultimate Eyeliner from Colorbar in Black retails for 550 INR at Jabong and you get 1 ml of product. The packaging is neat, sleek and very portable – you can easily carry this in your handbag for any touch ups if needed.
The black is dark and intense – just the way I like it! I wore the eyeliner for entire day and despite the busy day it did not smudge. It is not a waterproof eyeliner which works for me since I wear contact lenses and waterproof eyeliners tend to spoil my lenses eventually. This eyeliner comes off your eyes smoothly with a little eye makeup remover or some cotton dipped in baby oil – absolutely no need for excessive rubbing and tugging the delicate skin around the eyes. The flexible felt tip is a definite plus in my book as it makes application easy and effortless, especially for people with unsteady hands like yours truly.
- Intense Black
- Easy to use felt tip
- Sleek and easy to carry around in a purse
- Not waterproof; so if you sweat a lot or if it is going to be a rainy day, then beware!
I was really happy with my Colorbar eyeliner that a few days later when I happened to spot a Colorbar counter at the Angels store in Egmore, Chennai, I decided to explore other Colorbar products as well. I ended up buying a face highlighter/blusher in a lovely bronzy shade. Many of the face highlighters that I found in India tended to have a fair amount of glitter in them, which I totally did not want. However, this particular one from Colorbar doesn’t add any shimmer but simply gives a beautiful glow to my face. So pretty!
There are a whole range of Colorbar products that are beckoning to me and you can be sure that I’m going to try many of them out soon enough! Some of the products on my wishlist currently are the Radiant Glow Illuminator, the BB Crème, Teal Just Smoky Kajal, Peacock Blue Nail Paint, Amethyst Spark Glide Pencil… and the list goes on! What about you? Have you tried any products of Colorbar? Which are your favourites? Do let me know and I’ll check them out!
