Last week, I took leave for the whole week from the hectic office work and I went to my home town just to relax, relax, and relax, but still, I didn’t stay away from IMBB. The day before I left for Chennai, I went for a mini shopping with my friends and I hung around the Chambor stall at Lifestyle, Express Avenue Mall. The SA was very pleasing and helping me in getting the shades I was looking for. She made me test the metallic eye shadow “Crayon” on my eyes and gosh! I totally fell in love with it, but I didn’t get it because I have plenty of eye shadows and my mom would give me a big lecture if she sees me hoarding such stuff. So, I left the place without the eyeshadow.
Though I couldn’t resist myself from picking it up. So, when I reached Chennai after my trip, I rushed to Lifestyle with my husband and he gifted me this along with a few other lipstick for my birthday, well in advance!
Now, I will finish my story here and let’s get on to see what made me fall in love with this eye shadow.
The metallic eye shadow crayon comes in 2 gorgeous shades:
Jewel#1 – Metallic copper with golden shimmer, which is perfect for ethnic wear.
Jewel#2 – Mauvish Pink with silvery shimmer, which would be a everyday wearable eye shade.
Both these shades are wearable and would definitely suit all skin tones. The coppery brown would be great for dusky beauties! Line it up with a black eyeliner and mascara for dazzling and beautiful eyes.
The cost of each crayon is Rs. 525 for 1.6 grams.
It comes in a plastic case, same as the color of the eye shadow with silver designs to give it the look of a jewel. It looks classy and travel friendly. The tip of the crayon is fat. I may find it difficult to sharpen. One may need a bigger sharpener to sharpen this fat crayon and I picked one from Chambor, which facilitates sharpening both thin and fat crayons/pencils. It is very useful indeed.
The texture is super smooth like a cream finish. The crayon just glides smoothly on the lids without any tugging. It can be smudged or blended easily with a brush or fingers. The color pigmentation is worthy to be mentioned.
Till date, this has been the longest staying eye shadow I have used. The wear time is amazing. It stayed good for almost 9-10 hours on my oily eyelids with very little fading. It is smudge proof and water proof.
What I Like about Chambor Metallic Eyeshadow Jewel #2:
- Amazing formula, smooth, creamy to powder finish.
- Smooth texture and glides on smoothly.
- Staying power is awesome.
- Smudge proof.
- Blends easily.
- Classy packaging.
What I Did Not Like Chambor Metallic Eyeshadow Jewel #2:
- Sharpening, I’m not good at it, I fidget a lot and tend to break the pencils.
- No ingredients mentioned
Do I Recommend Chambor Metallic Eyeshadow Jewel #2?
Yes, I would recommend this to everyone.The shades are so wearable and anyone would love it.
4.5/5 (-.25 for the fat crayon and -.25 for the missing ingredients list).
Overall, its an amazing eye shadow, brilliantly formulated which is smudge proof, water proof and turns to be a long-wear eye shadow. The colors are gorgeous, definitely suits all Indian skin tones. I am going to pick the other coppery shade, though I should have picked it when my hubby was ready to gift it 😛
