I really liked the formula of the Colorbar eye shadow sticks and hence ended up picking up the pure black one, as this would be handy for smokey eye makeup lovers like me. Here is the review on the shade Dream.
Price – Rs 850/- for 1.4gm
My Experience with Colorbar Dream All Day Waterproof Eyeshadow Stick:
The eyeshadow sticks come in a silver colored paper carton with all details written on it. The pencil has a black plastic body with color coded base. The base comes off as a sharpener which can be used to get a sharp tip for fresh precise application. The pencil is twist up style and thankfully twists back. The shade name and number is mentioned on the body and the outer carton as well.
The texture is creamy but does not melt on touching the skin. The pigmentation is awesome and one stroke gives enough color for the color to show up. The tip being sharp helps to draw a sharp line as a liner, else can be used as a shadow. In the EOTD I have used the shade as an over-all shade and blended the ends with a taupe eye shadow.
The shade is pure black without any shimmers or sparkles. It starts off as a creamy black but settles to a matte shade in a while. I like how pigmented it is and there is no tugging or pulling of the delicate skin. One word of caution would be, not to use this on the waterline as typical kohl.
The staying power is great as it stayed on my lids without fading or smearing. I had to remove it with an oil based makeup remover but still there was a dark cast left behind which was completely removed after washing the face with a face wash. This is the first staining eye shadow for me as I had seen only staining lip color before.
Overall I am quite liking the idea of shadow sticks that all brands are coming up with these days. This is slightly expensive compared to the others available in the market; other than that there are no complains about these.
