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.
- 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.
- 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.

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?
