Colorbar I Glide Eye Pencil 05 Prunella : Review, Swatch, EOTD

My first step to eye makeup was to try colored eye pencils and once I started loving colors on my eyes I went ahead with many eye make up looks now and then. So all the credit goes to these creamy eye pencils I tried during the initial days. Major credits goes to Oriflame eye pencils and Colorbar eye pencils. I have all colors from the Oriflame range [See HERE] and I wanted all colors from Colorbar too [ See HERE]. Though I didn't get all, I have most of it and today I am reviewing one shade from the lot.

Lakshmi, this review goes for you :)


Description

Colorbar I glides are already pretty famous for their creaminess and yes I enjoyed the creaminess too ! It just glides on my lids easily without any tugging, much more creamier than the Oriflame ones. The shade Prunella is a dark deep purple shade that has a pinkish/shimmery hint to it, something like a duo chrome but not very obvious. I love purple and I love this one too but I am yet to choose 'the one' I love the most out of all the eye pencils I have. It sets in few minutes and never spreads at all. Comes off easily when cleaned with a make up remover.



Likes
  • These eye pencils are really creamy.
  • Glides easily on the lids.
  • Does not hurt the lids.
  • Available in a wide range of colors.
  • Does not crease or spread once it is set.
  • Prunella is a very pretty shade.

Dislikes
  • Breaks easily due to the creaminess.
  • A lot of product gets wasted while sharpening.
  • Prices have increased ! 



Price

The price of Colorbar I Glide Eye Pencils are Rs.450 for 1.1 g. Yes, you heard it right they increased it from Rs.325 to Rs.399 and now Rs.450 !!

EOTD - Lined the upper lash line with Prunella and blended it a bit.

Verdict

These eye pencils are one of my first eye pencils and I would always love them for the color pay off, creaminess and staying power. However, the price hike is something that has to be considered as well ! When I bought these were sold for 399 and hope they don't increase the price further when I buy next :( I love the formula so much that I totally enjoy using these eye pencils. Prunella is a pretty purple you must have with you.
