Artistic Eye Makeup Contest Update ~ Photo Example

I have received a few entries for the Artistic Eye Makeup Contest and I had to ask all of them to make some changes to their photos. I'm getting almost-full-face & also full face & body, one didn't even name her look or provide the required links. Now I could be less uptight about it but it wouldn't be fair to the other contestants who stick to the rules.

So I thought it'd be better if I showed you an example (which I should have done in the first place, sorry about that):


You can go smaller (like if you only want to show one eye OR don't want to show your forehead/ears) but no bigger than this (no bottom half of your nose, no apples of your cheeks & no lips). I won't have time to reply to emails, so please make sure you get the size right in order for your entry to be accepted. 

Also, please don't forget to:
  • Name your look
  • Provide a link to your blog post OR Facebook wall- where you linked your photo to Indian Vanity Case Facebook Page
  • Write down the products you used for your look.

I have also updated the contest post here

Good Luck once again. People are waiting for your looks, so do start sending them in! The sooner, the better ;)

Colorbar I-Glide Eye Pencils Review & Swatches


"Defines like a pencil and glides like liquid eyeliner, the I-Glide Eye Pencil, with its smooth formulation, gives your eyes rich colour in a single stroke and blends in easily after application. Lasts longer than 8 hours; does not feather or bleed." ~ Colorbar.

They do live up to those claims. They are some of the best eye pencils available here. You must own at least one two. They are soft & smooth but dry to a smudge-proof & long-wear finish.  I'm so glad that they have launched more shades....but I want more! 

Packaging: I love how the tails match the pencils (like matching underwear) + they have their very own matching outer boxes too.

There are 3 newly launched shades here- Amethyst Spark, Glowing Sapphire & Flirty Turq.

  • Prunella:  A pearly plum shade. It may look almost brownish on your lash line. 
  • Amethyst Spark: Purple with purply-pink shimmer. It is SO PRETTY! The color is very Katy Perry
  • Flirty Turq: Deepened turquoise with turquoise pearl. If you want to add a bit of zing to neutral eyes, just wear this on your lower lash line. 
  • Blackout: Matte Black. Must-have.
  • Cocobar: Cocoa brown. My everyday brown eye liner. Look at how short it is now :)
  • Jaded: Jade green with pearl. This shade flatters most eye colors.
