Colorbar Kohl

I picked up the shade Dark Brown.  I have just assumed the names of the shades from their actual colours, in real, nothing much is mentioned about the shade name/number on the packaging.

Price:  Rs. 299 for 1 gm.

My Take on Colorbar Enchanting Kohl:

So, I was looking for a brown kohl since long. I have a lot of brown eyeliners, but always shuddered at the thought of using them on my waterline.  Thankfully, Rati posted about the newly-launched Colorbar coloured kohls , and I grabbed one and I am glad that I did.  I have been using this kohl since the day I got it and I am hooked on to it completely (probably for the colour).  I feel that this brown kohl looks better on me (I have brown eyes) over black kohl. This is a coffee brown shade and looks pretty natural on my eyes.

I fell in love instantly with its soft creamy formula when I swatched it first. The pigmentation; however, is not that great, but can be built upon in 2-3 swipes to get a dark brown colour. The kohl smudges very lightly after 2-3 hours of applying it, (but nothing that leaves me with racoon eyes), which I feel is fine as most kohls do smudge. The staying power is about 4-5 hours after which this just fades off with just minimal/hint of colour.

The kohl comes in typical colorbar silver-colored and lightweight packaging.  While it looks nicely/cutely packaged (looks like a mini missile 😀 ) in the first look, I won’t consider it very user friendly and practical.  First, I don’t like kohls with such conical tips as once you are halfway using the product, the tip becomes rounded and thick, and application becomes difficult and not so precise. Second, the entire kohl is cased outside the tube and thus needs to be used/handled very carefully. I wish it came in a twist up form.

Overlooking its cons, I am quite liking the Colorbar Brown kohl (considering we have very few options for coloured kohls) and I am planning to get the one in white too.

Here is how it looks on my eyes.

Listing its pros and cons below:

Pros of Colorbar Enchanting Kohl:


  • Coloured kohl which is waterline safe.
  • Soft, creamy formula which glides on easily without much effort.
  • Does not smudge a lot and will not leave you with racoon eyes.
  • Has no fragrance/smell and no camphor-like ingredients (which I find in most kohls).
  • Can be built upon for dark/intense colour.
  • The shade looks better and natural on my brown eyes as compared to black kohl.
  • Comes off easily with soap+water.

Cons of Colorbar Enchanting Kohl:


  • The pigmentation is not great on the first swipe.
  • Staying power is just average, fades off in 4-5 hours.
  • The packaging makes it not-so user friendly and travel friendly. Needs to be handled with a LOT of care.
  • At INR 299 price tag and 1 gm product, I won’t consider it economical.

    I found 1 Colorbar store at Amanora Town Center, Pune. It is opposite to the Magarpatta City.
    I did not venture into the store. It’s located on the ground floor itself.
