4 Colorbar Single Eyeshadow Review
Green Stroke, Spicy Brown, Midnight Blue and Copper Crush Review and Swatches
I just discovered some ignored shadows in my closet today and I thought these deserve some attention. I am a huge fan of Colorbar and only recently, I found out that Colorbar has copied a lot of lipstick and eyeshadow names, and I must say not only names, but packaging as well from MAC 😥 ; and not just MAC, but OPI as well! :wilt: I was so disheartened to see that.

I was a MAC illiterate before reading IMBB and later, I realized that names like High Tea, Crème Cup in Lillies, and Expensive Pink have been copied, but thank goodness, at least the shades are not copied. I used to think Colorbar is an original brand catering to our Indian market and now the kind of prices they have, I doubt how many of us would call it a mass appeal brand and Maybelline is very swiftly occupying the place of brands like Lakme and Colorbar with more affordable price range and good products, whereas Lakme and Colorbar are almost doubling their prices with nail colors costing as much as Rs. 350 each!

Some things from Colorbar of course are still quite affordable, like their Superb Velvet matte lipsticks for just Rs. 225, but then, so are the Lakme Enrich and the Maybelline Colorsensational, which are equally good. Its just a matter of brand loyalty and shade selection after that. Some other affordable stuff from Colorbar are these eyeshadows, which are almost like MAC in their size.

I had five of them including Midnight Black, but a friend of mine liked to wear only black eyeshadow on her lid, so I thought she would be happier to have it than me, but Midnight Black too is a great black for the crease and for packing it on top of a black eye pencil or for the outer V. Anyway, I am showing you guys all the four colors that I have and Colorbar also has some others like these.

I love this shade and so do many others. It’s a pure metallic shade and it’s a red brown color with gold shimmer to it. It is high shine and awesome color for contouring the eye. I don’t mind going smokey with this and some black, it is very pigmented and very soft to touch and very easy on application, but I like to be fast with blending as it may be harder to blend later. It’s a must-have shade for traditional wear!

I love khaki eyeshadows and this is not a khaki, but still very lovable. This is a goldeny green and again pearl finish. This again is a very soft and pigmented shade and stays on very well too. I would not say it’s a shimmer or metallic one as its much toned down than the Spicy Brown shimmer one and its so pretty when paired with a black.

Oh my God!!!! It is such a gorgeous blue and so soft and pigmented and the most pretty dark blue in my collection. I love to wear it as soft smudged eye liner too and I use it for the crease as well. I absolutely love it!

This is a close dupe of MAC Amberlights and some other beauties that rati shared recently. You can see them here. I think for Indian skin, this is a must-have color and this one again is metallic and pearl finish. It does not have shimmer as much as it may appear though, the color is so gorgeous.
All the shadows have almost no fallout and have a very decent staying power without primer. The tiny brush has a good sponge, but its too curvy and tiny to use, which is also true for the mirror.
All in all, these are very good for a reasonable price of Rs. 225! Go get some!!
