Colorbar Single Eyeshadow: 04 Really Rose: Review/Swatch/EOTD

By Lee (Entry #3)

Hello!!
Today Im going to review one of the first eyeshadows I bought. It is Colorbar Single Eyeshadow 04 Really Rose

 

Product Claims

The eyeshadow is a pigmented powder that gives the eyes a shine and pearl like effect. Ultra fine in texture,it is easy to blend while its moisturizing agent keeps your eyelids soft and smooth. The product is long lasting and fade  resistant
Price: Rs 300 for 3gms
 
Best before 3 yrs of manufacturing
 
Packaging: It comes in a silver packaging with a transparent lid so its easy to find the colour you’re looking for in a hurry. It has two compartments. The top compartment contains the actual product ie the eyeshadow & the lower compartment stores the curved sponge applicator & a small mirror which is quite useful for touchups.
Really Rose is a typical baby pink shade with a frosty finish. It has fine whitish silver shimmer which gives it a good sheen. The product is of very good quality & it is one of my favourite eyeshadows of all time.
The texture of the eyeshadow is very smooth & it just glides on your eyes.
The eyeshadow is highly pigmented & you do not require a base or primer to bring out the colour.It blends like a dream & doesn’t require much effort.I have used this before in my EOTDs & Ive got such an amazing response for the blending even though I don’t own a blending brush.Most of the credit goes to the amazing quality of this product.
 
Swatch:

 

 
I have faced minimum fallout with this E/S & that too only when Ive applied this with a heavy hand.
The best part about this eyeshadow is its staying power.It lasts for atleast 6-7 hrs without getting patchy,that too without a primer!! For someone like me who hasn’t invested in a primer yet,it’s a total boon!!
 
Before I had bought the Faces E/S brush I always used to do my looks using Colorbar’s applicator.Some ppl might disagree but I always found it to be of decent quality & I can honestly say its one of the best applicators Ive ever used.Ive done this particular EOTD using the applicator provided.
 
This is one product by Colorbar that delivers on all fronts & claims!
PROs
 
1)Soft & Smooth Texture
2)Highly Pigmented
3)Stays for 6-7 hrs without getting patchy that too without a primer
4)A nice shimmery sheen & doesn’t look ‘glittery’
5)Minimum Fallout
6)The sponge applicator is of good quality
 
Cons
1)I really had to nitpick for a con.I wish the applicator wasn’t so curved & tiny.
 
If you’re an eyeshadow lover or if you’re just starting to experiment with eyeshadows,this is one product that is a total must buy!!You wont regret it! 🙂
Ciao!
