doe foot applicator

Packaging: The gloss comes in a long tube with silver cap and doe foot applicator which makes the application very easy. The applicator takes out enough gloss at a time and you need not to dip it again and again.

Texture: The texture is thick, creamy and non drying. I hate sticky glosses which is why I love Colorbar true glosses, although they have thick texture but they are absolutely non sticky. They set on the lips after some time giving a semi matte finish.

Application: The doe foot applicator is ideal for application. As the texture is really good so it applies smoothly on the lips and gives an even finish. It doesn’t look patchy at all.

Opacity: This is the area which took my breath away, what a color coverage, it is fantastic!! These glosses are intensely pigmented, a very strong point which inclined me towards them at first place.

Longevity: I had a wear time of 5-6 hours after which these starts to fade.  I usually wear them with colorbar lip definers for long wear time. But they have decent longevity on their own as well. It transfers a little on the cups and glasses.

Pros:

  • Vast rang to choose from.
  • Applicator does its job perfectly
  • Thick, creamy and non drying texture
  • Non sticky and very comfortable on lips.
  • Even application on lips.
  • Superbly pigmented
  • Doesn’t transfer much on cups/glasses
  • Moisturizing
  • Good wear time.

My verdict: If you love wearing glosses this is the product for you. All I have is positive things to say about it. I love the texture, finish and wear time. I highly recommend these glosses.

Color: Beautiful wine shade with dark brown undertones. It would suit mostly all skin tones.

Texture: Oh, i loved the texture. It is so soft, creamy and glides very smoothly on lips. The formula is semi matte but it does not dry the lips. The ladies with severely dry lips can moisturize the lips beforehand.

Application: Application is very easy, being the thick pencil it is very easy to hold. Also, the thick pointy tip provides a very precise application.

Pigmentation: Highly pigmented, one swipe provides the full color coverage.

Longevity: It stayed on me all day, i applied it before going to office and it was almost intact till evening with slight fading around the corners and middle of lips. I had the wear time of 7-8 hours.

Pros:

  • Beautiful Shade among the usual pinks and red.
  • Smooth texture.
  • The formula is not too drying.
  • Precise application due to thick pointy tip.
  • Highly pigmented.
  • Long wear time.
  • Doesn’t bleed.
  • Very handy packaging.

Cons:

  • Stains the lips. Need an oil based removed to completely get rid of the color.
  • Product wastage during sharpening.

My Verdict: I am impressed with the Packaging, texture and wear time of the Lipstick. To me the wear time of the lipstick is a huge plus point as i find touch-ups very cumbersome.

Colorbar Just Smoky kajal – Just Blue review and swatch

Colorbar Just Smoky kajal – Just Blue
http://www.colorbarcosmetics.com/Just_Smoky_Eye_Pencil

Colorbar Says

Description: Just Smoky Kajal gets you Glam ready in just 50 seconds. This long-lasting, multi-tasking eye pencil gives you 3-in-1 benefits of an Eyeliner, Kajal and an Eye Shadow. It helps you to achieve the mysterious smoky-eyed look which will last for up to 12 hours. It comes with a built-in smudger that is as soft as a cushion which can be used to demystify the art of smoky eyes. The intense color and matte texture of the pencil adds definition and drama to your eyes. It has waterproof property and does not transfer.

Application: After a few strokes of the soft liner along your top and bottom lashes, use the sponge smudger to blend out the color to the desired level of strength for the perfect smoky eye look.

It is available in 5 variants.

  1. Just Black
  2. Just Grey
  3. Just Green
  4. Just Teal
  5. Just Blue

Today i am reviewing the shade Just Blue.

MRP: Rs. 650

Packaging: Pencil style with kajal at one end and smudger at the other with their respective caps. The outer color of the pencil is in blue color as well which makes it easy to identify.

DSC_0785

DSC_0788Shade: Ink blue color with matte finish. The color is almost black but when you smudge it then it shows the  nice ink blue color.

DSC_0791

Texture: kajal is creamy and glides smoothly. The disadvantage of creamy formula is that the tip tends to break when you sharp it. I have personally faced this problem with this liner and it leads to product wastage which hurts when you are using the liner of this price range.

Application: Application is smooth till the time you are using it as eye liner but if you will try to use as eye shadow you would be disappointed. The formula makes the liner set so quickly leaving no room for the blending and if you try to blend once it is set then it starts to flake. I mean what is the purpose of putting smoky kajal claim when you can not blend it to achieve the desired effect.

Pigmentation: Very pigmented. One swipe gives the perfect ink blue matte color. You can intensify the color with multiple swipes.

Staying power: It stayed on my waterline for 6-7 hours with slight fading. On my eye lids it stayed for 5-6 hours and started fading afterwards which is a good wear time for me. It did transfer to my crease but that may be because I have oily lids.

Removal: You need a good oil based makeup remover to remove its traces completely.

Pros:

  • Beautiful color
  • Creamy texture, glides smoothly
  • Application is smooth if you will use as kajal or liner.
  • Waterproof, it doesn’t budge and sets with in seconds.
  • Great pigmentation
  • Long staying power

Cons:

  • Smudger is not ideal for application and not cushiony as claimed by brand.
  • Difficult to sharpen, wastage of product.
  • Sets quickly leaving no room for blending.
  • You will get patchy application if you will try to blend once it is set.
  • Not at all a smoky kajal, but if you have expertise to blend and smudge it in seconds then you may achieve desired results.
  • Expensive for a liner or kajal.

My verdict: It doesn’t live up to its claim of Smoky kajal. However it gives the best results if used as kajal or liner. Frankly speaking i am a little disappointed with colorbar, they did something innovative but it doesn’t serve the purpose it is meant for.
