Colorbar All Day Waterproof Eye Shadow Stick in 004 Moss
I love eye shadows and everything to do with eye make up. I believe that eyes can speak a thousand emotions without your lips fluttering any word. Properly done eye make up can do a lot of things. It opens up your eyes, make dull and tired eyes look lively. And when you do not have much time to doll up your eyes with elaborate eye shadow sessions, something which is multi tasking, quick and easy to use can be your savior. One of those thing is the new Colorbar all day water proof eye shadow stick. I had to get it when I saw Colorbar posting pictures of it in their Instagram profile. I have picked up the color in 004 Moss. They have 7 shades, swatches of which I have posted on my Instagram account (@shampita_trl) quite some time back. Do check out my Instagram and follow me for more updates. Read on to know more about it.




Company Claims ~

Liner or shadow, the integrated sharpener in the ultra modern eye shadow stick makes it easy to use as both. Dermatologically & ophthalmologicaly approved.

Packaging ~

Like all Colorbar products, the stick is housed in silver colored paper package with all details and ingredients mentioned on it. The body the eye shadow comes in a black plastic pen like casing with twist up feature and cap. At the bottom of it there is a color coded, a conical shaped sharpener attached. I would not call it a sharpener, rather a molder. When after a lot of application, the eye shadow gets blunt, this unique attachment can be used to press against the product to give a conical shape. One needs to be a little careful while doing it, so that the product does not break off. I am extremely impressed with this attachment, as this would prevent any wastage of product due to sharpening. It fits in my makeup perfectly and if I have to glam up quickly, this does the job perfectly.

Texture ~

Just as the company claims, it has a velvety smooth texture almost like a colored kohl pencil. This glides on smoothly without any tug or pull. Once applied and blended the eye shadow sets beautifully without any smudging. As I have very little crease space, so anything which does not smudge is always two thumbs up for me. To blend this you would require a flat eye shadow brush. This blends well with fingers. With fluffy brush you would have a little hard time in blending this.

Color and Pigmentation ~

The color Moss, is a beautiful turquoise blue with golden, silver shimmers present. So this is definitely a shimmery shadow. The shimmers are so so finely milled that I have not been able to figure out if they are golden or silver. All in all, it looks pretty. The pigmentation is out of this world literally. Just as the company claims, with one swipe this gives a great color and coverage. You can definitely layer on to intensify the color and give more smokey effect on your eyes.. In the EOTD below, I however have used it in dotting motion to apply, and have not layered it.

Longevity ~

This stays put on my eyes for a really really long time. I have an extremely oily eye lid, so without any priming and eye shadow base, this stayed on me for quite a long time. It was more than 6-7 hours may be. But when my eye lids started getting a bit oily, it started to shine through the eye shadow. But with primer and base on, it stayed on like for ever. I am extremely liking the staying power of this. I splashed some water on my face to see if it is really water proof, and girls it. The eye shadow stayed put. Don't be alarmed it is easy to remove too. Makeup remover removes the whole thing. But if you use baby oil or almond oil to remove this, you might see a faint stain staying behind which gets removed with facial cleanser.

Usability ~

I end up using this more often as an eye liner when in hurry, as this does not smudge, the color stays on me for good long hours. I am so liking the fact that this can be used as both liner and shadow. When used as an shadow, just pat some on, blend with your finger, add some mascara to your lashes, and you are literally done. In my EOTD below I tried to give a little definition to my with eye with shadows from my Makeup Revolution Iconic 1 Palette ( which is my current favorite palette and I am loving it to the core)

Overall, I am really really liking the eye shadow stick, it's very convenient, handy, multi-tasking with beautiful color. The only thing that bothers me a lot about it, is the price. I was having a Halo and Horn moment at the Colorbar counter while buying this only because of the price. The price should have been around 500 bucks, then I would have got few more shades of it too.  I really wanted the gold shade ( Ornament 005). I wish Colorbar could have introduced few more shades too may be in peacock green, taupe. I highly recommend this if you are an eye shadow buff like me.
