I Glide pencils by Colorbar need no introduction. They have been around since a pretty long time and with the variety of shades and smoothness of texture, they are here to stay. I got this newly launched shade in Absolute Pine. Read on to know how it fared for me.
Price – Rs 499/-
My Experience with Colorbar I Glide Eye Pencil Absolute Pine:
The packaging has been already been described in the reviews of the other shades, in details; I would just add that the color coded body is definitely a pro. Also the dates on the body of the pencil helps to keep track on the product expiry. Most sharpening pencils come with sharpeners these days but it lacks in that department, but any cosmetic sharpener works just as good.
The pencil is so smooth that it glides like dream on the lids. There is no tugging or pulling of the lids; the tip being so smooth and creamy gets blunt after each use. You have to sharpen each time to get the perfect pointed tip. Though the sharpening leads to product wastage, but some people prefer to sharpen their pencils for hygiene reasons.
The shade is khaki with grey undertones which makes the shade unique and wearable. I love how it defines the eyes without looking too green or grey. There is a sheen to the shade which adds to the beauty of the shade and doesn’t look OTT.
The staying power is worth mention. Once set it stays on for a pretty long time, 5-6 hours minimum without fading or smudging. I do not apply this on the waterline, so I would not comment on that. I love the one-stroke application feature and hence a pretty good pick if you like the shade.

• Easy one stroke application.
• Stays long.
• Does not smudge.

Cons of Colorbar I Glide Eye Pencil Absolute Pine:
