In my previous post when I was talking about marathon reviews barely did I know that I am not doing just marathon reviews, I am doing marathon reviews of duds. The name sounds pretty fancy and coming from a brand like The Body Shop I just think what was I thinking then?!?
I have pretty strong yellow undertones so I am very careful about the blue I use on my eyes. Certain shades of blue make me feel sick with big dark circles and few others make me look as if I got into a brawl and got punched. But when I saw “carbon blue” and swatched on my hand I was pretty sure about it and it was an instant purchase.
It is a wooden pencil with two ends. On one end is the blue liner and on the other is a smudge tip. Both ends are secured with a transparent cap which snugly fits but do not click shut. The smudger tip has a metal base to hold. The body is blue in color just to indicate the shade of the liner. On the body all other minute details are mentioned along-with the shade name and brand name.
You can judge the texture of the liner from the swatch. It is not dry but it is crumbly. Am sure you will agree with me if I say that you cannot rub on your eyes with the same intensity as you can do on your hand, so for swatching it is fine, but on eyelid it is a total failure. The smudger tip is like an eraser which removed the color instead of smudging it out. I mean what was in the mind of the person(s) who created this dud!
Around Rs 600/- for 0.85 gms
My Experience with The Body Shop-Carbon Blue Eye Definer:
Are there products in your stash which make you feel “what was I thinking!!!”. I cannot bear the fact that I am buying a dud stuff even after trying and testing at the store. If you check the swatch below you will realize why I am on a constant rant phase. Neither it works as a liner nor the smudge tip does its job. I cannot remember a day when I went out wearing this.
I had to show you people how bad a liner can get so kindly hold your “ewws and yaaaks” in the only liner picture. I have tried to make it work by dabbing on some blue shadow with a hint of pink in the inner corners.
I can see myself taking the place of the smiley which constantly bangs it head. Admins I will send a photo of mine, kindly replace the smiley with my photo.
