Colorbar Beauty Fever Makeup Kit (Limited Edition) Review and Swatches.
Hello IMBBians this time I am reviewing the Colorbar Beauty Fever Makeup Kit (Limited Edition). I first saw this kit in IMBB a very long back and decided to go for it.. but I needed a strong reason why I want to have it for to tell to my mother.. so I told my bf (now fiancé ) to gift me this one whenever we will get engaged. After many its and buts he agreed and now presently I own it.. and I loooving it. This is a great makeup kit for the people who are new in makeup and want to try different colors on them before going to the high end brands. And I am one of them.
So to start with it, the product claims that, Beauty Fever Makeup Kit (Limited Edition) is a triple tiered palette for the eyes, face and lips plus all the tools you need to put together endless looks. Crazy about colour? Need Plenty of makeup options at all times? The Colorbar beauty fever makeup kit has everything you need. It is indeed an artist’s arsenal. It is big on style with eye shadows, blush, lip-gloss, soft touch lip color, compact powder, eyeliner and eyebrow pencil, all adapted to mix and match perfectly.
Ingredient list: Is not provided I guess it will be the same as their individual products, I mean I hope so… not sure about it..
Packaging and contents : it is a cute designed and compact make up kit. Can be taken in a bag very safely,, no fear of misplacing the contents. It has an inbuilt mirror. It contains 16 eye shadows… yes you read it write 16 eye shadows, 4 lip colors, 2 lip glosses, 2 blushes, one pressed powder, one black eye pencil, one eyebrow pencil, one powder puff, one eye shadow applicator, one tiny small brush I think it’s a blush brush and one lip brush.
Price: Rs.950/- for an entire kit. I guess if I divide the price only for e/s then each e/s will cost around Rs.60, which is just superb.
Colorbar Eye shadows : There are pretty 16 eye shadows in this kit. These are 1.8 gm each in quantity. The colors are white, silver, yellow, brown, canverry, red, pink, lavender, black, shiny white, lime green, dark green, aqua blue, metallic blue, beige and matte brown. All the shades have shimmer to them except the last two. Remaining all are with different degree of pigmentation and shimmer to them for e.g. the brown, shiny white, black and aqua blue are very well pigmented. Some appear a bit chalky e.g. the white and lavender. Some are silky e.g. yellow, canverry, pink, lime green. Some are not true to its color e.g. canverry and red, both are not at all canverry (I think it should be cranberry, it is spelled wrongly by them) and red. Some of them lack pigmentation and color payoff. I find them a bit less in quality as compared to their single e/s dibbis. I have their copper crush e/s and I find it pretty good in quality as compared to any of the e/s in this kit. The dibbiwala e/s is smooth and fine. Coming to their staying power, it is directly proportional to their pigmentation. More pigmented the color is more is the staying power. They all smudge and fade completely after 3 hours or so. But it is not the same when applied with a good base. I use Revlon Crème Eye shadows as base. And they stay longer. In the swatches I have applied this base and each e/s is 2-3 times applied. Out of all I personally loved the shimmery brown and black one.
Colorbar Lip colors: there are in total 4 lip colors and they are from their soft touch range and 0.8 gm each. I have one lipstick from this range and the quality of is quite similar. Pigmentation is good. They stay on for more than 3 hours without eating or drinking. And the colors provided are good. I don’t know which shades are these. So finding them again will be a problem for sure, as I liked the third one very much.
Colorbar Lip glosses: there are two lip glosses provided in it. one is a clear gloss with silver shimmer and other is a golden colored with golden shimmer to it. both are jelly like in consistency may for them to get fit in this kit and avoid being runny. These are good ones and I liked them.
Colorbar Blushes: there are two blushes in this 3gm each. One is a brown colored and other is a pink coloured. The shades are not named but I think first is the plum brown and second is the cosmic rose. Correct me if I am wrong. I own their just earth blush and I find the quality is the same as their individual blushes.. Both are very nice. As I don’t use much of the blushes so it saved me from buying more blushes in haste. I love the pink one.
Colorbar Compact powder: it is 5gm in quantity. I think it is their time plus compact powder. The shade is the lightest one provided and it suit me the best. The staying power is quite good. Next I will go for their compact powder.
Colorbar Eye pencil: there is a small eye pencil in black which is 0.6 gm in quantity. I cannot compare it with their I define or I glide pencils as I don’t own any of them.. I know its silly to talk this on IMBB,, but I will be going for them soon. The pencil is average kind nothing much to say about it.
Colorbar Eye brow pencil: it is a dark brown colored pencil for defining eye brows and I like it. it is again 0.6gm in quantity. After applying it in morning my eye brows remain defined till evening so I am happy about it.
Colorbar Brushes: Last and also the least. I think they have provided the brushes for name sake. They are hardly useful. The lip brush is good as compared to the other one but I think it can get lost at any time. The blush brush I doubt about it. it is tiny brush and I use it for blending my eye shadow in the crease. I know it’s silly but I don’t like to waste anything related to beauty and I use it in some way or the other. The powder puff is too small and need a delicate hand on it. Mine got a tear when I used it in hurry one day. The e/s applicator is a typical sponged one and I am not liking it.
It is very good buy for beginners. One can mix and match different e/s colors with blush and lip colors. As I said each of the e/s will be costing Rs.60 in total, also I am getting the other things with it, which is a great deal. I liked all the stuff provided except the brushes… I think I am getting too greedy :P.
Will I buy it again? I think this one is enough for me. But I will be gifting it to my friends to open their doors of mind towards makeup. 😛
Overall rating: I will give it a :* :* :* :* rating. -1 because looking at of some of eye shadows I felt like cheated.
I tried many make up looks with this but only two were worth showing to you so here are they. I am not a pro at it but could not resist showing it to all of you.
Thanks for reading
