We all know what importance kohl places in our lives. The day I started wearing the kohl, I have never able to step of my house without wearing one. Rather if I don't wear it, I always get comments on how unwell I am looking :D. Well since primitive times, I have always used a black kohl and somehow was always shy of trying other colors.
I bought ColorBar I Glide pencil In Cocoa brown shade for filling my eyebrows. However even after several tries, I was no good with using a pencil for filling my eyebrows plus the shade was a tad darker on me. And I was feeling ready bad for wasting it. So I thought of trying the same as an eyeliner and eventually as a kohl. And believe me the first swipe over my lower waterline and I was sold to the brown color magic.
Well guys the sad part is that while writing this post, I lost my eye pencil someplace . I didn't had the heart to delete the draft and therefore I I will be posting this review with the images taken from the net and without my personal swatches.
ColorBar launched these pencils in 13 different shades to spoil their customers for choices. I mean I have never seen such a wide range of colored eye pencils. And they are available in almost every color you may or may not imagine. I bought the one in Cocoa Bar.
What does ColorBar says about the product
Defines like a pencil and glides like liquid eyeliner. This efforlessly easy to use I Glide Eye Pencil with its smooth formulation, gives your eyes rich colour in a single stroke and blends in easily after application.Last longer then 8 hours, does not feather or bleed.
My take on the product
The ColorBar I Glide eye pencil is a silver based eye pencil with the colored tip at the end same as the color of the pencil for the easy identification . The cap is also silver based , slightly slanted with adequate tight fitting. The pencil is sturdy and travel friendly.
Cocoa bar is a dark brown color eye pencil with black undertones and a creamy texture. The color is spectacular and look ravishing on the eyes. I more like using it as a kohl. It's a very warm color and gives the eyes a very natural warm look and it comes out so well on the waterline. The pencil glides like a dream. There is zero effort in applying it ,absolutely no tugging no pulling. The color pay off is amazing. The staying power as ColorBar claims is easily for around 6-7 hours after which the color fades leaving a light brown stain which gives the hint of light kohl . The pencil is smudge free and can be easily removed with makeup remover.
The only disappointing factor is that the pencil needs to be sharpened very frequently. Being a creamy texture, the sharpened lid is lost on my eyes in a single application and therefore I have to sharpen it after each application. It is tiresome and leads to the quick disposal of the product. If use on a daily basis, the pencil may last you a month and with higher usage may last you even less then a month. That's disappointing considering the price of the product.
But still I m in love with this kohl. It's has the most beautiful warm brown color and the smoothest lid. I am surely going to give ColorBar a visit to purchase my another cocoa bar pencil. However this time I would like to get my hands on their other I Glide Pencils since the color looks so tempting.
So have you tried ColorBar I glide eye pencil yet? Which is your favourite eye pencil in brown color? Would love to hear all about it. Till then,
