Colorbar Enchanting Trio Eyeshadow Palette Gorgeous Purple Review

Colorbar Enchanting Trio Eyeshadow Palette Gorgeous Purple Review

Colorbar Enchanting Trio Eyeshadow palettes are one of my favorite eyeshadow palettes. I have Seductively NuedeFeeling Blue, and Turquoise Magic palettes in this range. I had my eyes on Gorgeous Purple variant of this range since many months because I am a diehard fan of purple eyeshadows. I was very confused about ordering this palette since many months, but recently, I decided to get this because one of the online websites had discount on it as a part of its Diwali offer. It took me just 5 minutes to order it as soon as I saw it on discount. :-P. I am glad I waited for so many months to order it otherwise I would have not got the discount (greedy me :-P).

Price:

Rs. 550

My Experience with Colorbar Enchanting Trio Eyeshadow Palette Gorgeous Purple:

Colorbar Enchanting trio eyeshadow palettes come in very classy, round transparent cases with a see-through cover and silver, shiny, reflecting base. It comes with a spongy, dual-ended applicator in it which isn’t completely useless. I use it for touch ups or when I am travelling and I don’t have the time and space to carry make up brushes with me.

Purple Eyeshadow

The palette consists of three shades of purple. The darkest shade is an intensely pigmented pure purple color. It can be used as an overall lid color or can be used as a crease color with the lighter purple color as an overall lid color. A single swipe shows the true tone of this color. Next to it, is a lighter purple color with hints of mauve in it and silver glitter. It looks good all over the lid and adds brightness to the eyes. I generally use this as a lid color with the darkest purple in the outer V and the crease. The lightest shade has more silver glitter than the other shades and has more hints of mauve and pink than the rest. It brightens up the eyes well when used at the tear ducts and at the brow bone.

Purple Eyeshadow 1

All the three colors have shimmer with the highest level of shimmer in the highlighter and the lowest in the darkest purple. The medium color isn’t as pigmented as the darkest color and the highlighter is the least pigmented. All the three colors are very soft which can cause a mild fall out. They blend very easily and the color combination works great when I need an all purple eye makeup.

The staying power of these eyeshadows is amazing. It easily lasts on my oily lids for 5-6 hours without any primer.  It starts creasing on me after 5 hours without a primer.  I think the staying power and the texture is one of the best things about this eyeshadow. I have a slight problem with the color combination because I think the highlighter and the medium purple color look quite similar when used together. One of these colors should have been lighter or darker to bring about more depth in the eye look.

Pros of Colorbar Enchanting Trio Eyeshadow Palette Gorgeous Purple:

  • All the three colors form a good combination for an all purple eye look.
  • All the three colors are nicely pigmented with the darkest color having insane pigmentation.
  • Very soft and smooth.
  • Blends very easily.
  • Amazing staying power. It easily stays on my oily lids for 5-6 hours without any primer.
  • Doesn’t crease on my oily lids for about 5 hours.
  • Very classy packaging and the applicator isn’t absolutely useless.

Cons of Colorbar Enchanting Trio Eyeshadow Palette Gorgeous Purple:

  • The intensity of the medium purple and the highlighter should have had more difference. One of these should be lighter or darker to bring about the exact depth in the eye makeup.

IMBB Rating:

4/5.

Do I Recommend Colorbar Enchanting Trio Eyeshadow Palette Gorgeous Purple?

You should try this if you are a fan of purple eyeshadows. If you don’t want to get this particular trio, I will definitely advice you to try one of the other variants in this range. You are going to love the pigmentation and texture of these eyeshadows. Seductively Nuede and Feeling Blue are my absolute favorites in this range.

Wow! The pigmentation is to die for!
I am a huge fan of purple Surbhi ! I have soo many purple ones in powder,cream and pigment forms!
The lightest color doesnt look too shimmery so maybe you can use it with a pink eyeshadow. You can use it as on overall lid color for a day look too!
