Colorbar Eyeshadow Review


I've told you that I'm not into buying single eyeshadows, but I felt I needed to try at least one eyeshadow from Colorbar. So I bought one to try out - Proudly Purple. I find it hard to describe the shade to a T, but  if I had to, I'd say... a deep brownish purple with multi-colored shimmer, at least I think it's multi-colored. 


Likes:
  • Pigmented and blendable. Can be applied sheerly or layered for intensity.
  • Stays on the whole day. I wore it on Diwali day too and it didn't budge.
  • Cute packaging + mirror 
  • Price! Rs.225
  • I think the finish is somewhat similar to MAC's Veluxe Pearl finish. I think.
Dislikes:

  • The arc-shaped dual-sided sponge tip applicator. It's the rubbery kind of sponge that doesn't even pick up color. If you don't want it to be totally useless, it can be used for smudging liner/kajal instead.
That's it. I don't dislike anything else. I highly recommend Colorbar eyeshadows, especially if you can't afford MAC's , INGLOT's and other single eyeshadows that cost more than Rs.225.

Swatches of Proudly Purple...

It's such a unique & gorgeous shade!

Now I only wish Colorbar would come out with customized eyeshadow palettes, so I will want to buy more. Or they should choose somebody with better taste to create their ready-to-buy palettes, coz I didn't like the color selection in their 'Warm' & 'Cool' palettes at all!

So, which Colorbar eyeshadows do you girls like?

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
