Today I shall be reviewing Colorbar High Definition Kohl Eye liner. No product has ever confiused me as this and I regret to say that I don’t really have a definite verdict on it. Well yes… I have mixed feelings about it… There! I said it 🙂
First things first, I got this kohl by mistake. I went to get myself a Colorbar I-Glide pencil in black but after paying my bill, the SA handed me over this. I didnt quite check it cause I was in a hurry, plus all Colorbar pencils and their cartons look very similar 🙁 So, you can say that I got hoodwinked 🙁
Well anyways, the pencil comes in an attractive Silver and black carton, which looks something like this:
Inside, the pencil cover is grey in color and is in roll-on form. You see this when I realised my mistake of not getting an _-Glide pencil but some other kajal pencil 🙁 Well anyways, this is how it looks…
What the Colorbar site claims?
Well, strangely the colorbar site does not mention this kohl at all. Either it is extremely old and discontinued or it’s a latest product! Ladies, any pointers here?
Well, it’s black and the name of the shade is also “Just Black”. It is black and quite “jet”. No problem in that department 🙂 It swatches beautifully on the hand and seems pretty smooth 🙂 The swatch is as follows:
As you all can see, it really is black and the swatch is just 2-swipes old.
Now I come to the weird part. It refuses to get applied on my eyes. It is not easy to be applied on either my waterline or on my lashline! It just simply says NO! An image as proof:
As you can see, it looks charcoal grey and not black on the eyes 🙁 And do note that this is the color that I got when i swiped the kajal 27 times!! I swear! No exaggeration! You see, after this I totally gave up on the product and felt really cheated out of my money 🙁 But… Oh yes! There is a but here, I had totally forgotten about the swatch of the kajal on my hand. I noticed it while washing my hands before dinner that the swatch line was as is with no smudges… Do you get me? NO SMUDGES at all!!! Is that even possible? Well, then i tried washing it off with water but it would still not budge!!! I swear it didn’t even smudge under the tap!!!! Only with soap did it actually flake out and got erased!!!
You see, now this really impressed me. I went totally GA GA over the kohl, so I tried improvising with it. So, I came to a conclusion that if I swipe the kajal 27 times and then apply a bit of liquid liner on it, it actually stays on and also looks black 🙂 It’s a compromise but it sure works 🙂
How much did I get it for?
Well, like I said earlier, I paid for an I-Glide pencil but got this by mistake or errrr by the SA’s cunningness so am not really sure how much it costs and the carton doesn’t really have a price sticker on it.so in all I pair Rs.325/- for it! 😛
Let me now list out the pros and cons of the product:
PROs of Colorbar High Definition Kohl Eye Liner
• Doesn’t smudge
• Is water resistant and water proof
• It’s in a roll on form that I prefer over pencils
• The carton is very pretty to look at
CONs of Colorbar High Definition Kohl Eye Liner
• Zero color payoff on the eye.
Will I purchase this again?

Next time, buy a Kohl that smudges, rub it on your arms, and then rub your arms against your eyes. You will get much more black on your eyes that way.
Right now, you have a white elephant. :whistle: :whistle:
don not rub it in Sanjeev 🙁 :poop: :poop: :poop: :poop: :poop: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep:

Umm… because child marriage is still a crime in our country? :whistle: :whistle:
who you calling a child MISTER???? 😮 😮 😮 😮 😮 😮 😮 😮
Now now, wasn’t I paying you a compliment on your youth? Lots of ladies would kill to hear it :whistle: :whistle:
It is such a mystery..when you are young you don’t wanna hear from someone that you are wet behind you ears. And when you are old you don’t wanna hear that you are past your prime…there must be an age when you can agree on that. :joker: :joker: :joker:
Oh I also thought you were not married…may be since you talk so much about mom. ….SO I kinda assumed. 😛 😛
LOL! you assumed right 🙂 I am not married…. just toying with the idea 😉
:joker: :joker: :joker: :joker: :joker: :joker: :joker:

Okies…here’s something sweet for you 🙂
And here’s something that I like very much 🙂
:spank: :spank: :spank: i expected this one to be a good product
IT IS NOT!!!! And the worst is that this is the first product that I did a negative review for 🙁 It’s saddening….
my friend uses this other colorbar pencil on her waterline and it seems that …it’s amazinggggggggggg :toothygrin:

it must be I-Glide ones 🙁 That’s what I had gone to buy na… 🙁 but i was “dhoka-fied” 🙁
Suma..sad this dint work for you.u went to e-square wala pune central kya? I was planning to get I-Glide from there only….
you are most welcome Scooby-doo 🙂 that’s a cute user name btw 🙂 :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo:
ahh.. a bit out of context 🙂
i want to buy my 1st eye liner and mascara (volume) 😀
which brands good for a beginner?
Options: Revlon Colorbar Lakme ? (these available close by to me 🙂 )
I have tried the colorbar duo mascara. It was good. 🙂
I hear the Maybelline Colossal Volume is good though I haven’t used it. I use the REVLON waterproof mascara and it is pretty good on my barely there lashes 🙂
Liner: ELF liquid liner is awesome and so is Colorbar’s Precision Water proof liner. My friend says Lakme’s liner is also very good 🙂
err.. u confused me a bit suma 🙂
though im going to keep in my mind options before buying 🙂
Thank u Rati and Suma 🙂
and liner ?? any easy application types 🙂 my 1st time :worship:
colorbar i glides are nice. even lakme glide on pencils are good
🙂 ok these shall be my 1st try 😀
I always bad a bad experience with their manager ,. the SAs are cute. The manager is like he learns all the ingredients and the claims of each product everyday and as soon as a customer asks him about the product he vomits it out the whole in one go. I was complaining why is colorbar increasing the price of nail paints and he goes like ( in one breath)- chip resistant, long staying, fast drying..blah blah . I was like huh!! 😯 pay and run away from the store. 😛 😛
LOL!!!! i did the same that is pay and run away but then i got cheated out with a wrong product 🙁
ok i am ultra cribby today 🙁 ?:) ?:) ?:) ?:)
Oh that’s okay. That’s why we are bloggers and not magazines. We can crib. 😉 :-*
:deadrose: :deadrose: :deadrose: Suma, send the SA these dead roses and let her :headbang:
Suma…..this happened just one time to you na….i have faced these kind of disappointments so many times…………. :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep:
but cheer up…..you got that pink cute bag with all this……………. :yelo: :yelo: :yelo:
hey suma…sad dis doesnt work..i glide is gud..get dat next tym :waytogo: :waytogo:
ya i loveeee dat pink bag..space to keep everythg !!! me too want :weep: :weep:
wowww – dats one tough product 🙂
so finally how did u get it on ur waterline. AND did u try on ur lid?
but seriously pune central SAs have dupes me too… 🙁
very difficult to buy colorbar here in chennai…any idea where i can get it
i too got bad output from colorbar blue kohl….when i sharped it…it is not at all smooth like before…..
Colorbar kajal is for 125 rupees. Your remaining 200 rupees went for a toss. You must have gone back next day. Even I was thinking to replenish my colorbar’s stock and the only counter I’ve seen so far in Pune for colorbar products is at Pune Central. In Delhi I would get it any local street corner. But Now I’m scared to go and buy from Pune Central 🙁
Will try ordering online.
