Product Description:

This ultra-modern eye-shadow stick glides like velvet, has feather light application and lasts for 8 hours without creasing, flaking or fading!
Applying perfect eye-shadow will no longer be a tricky job with ColorBar All Day Waterproof Eyeshadow Stick. Fall in love with this blendable and highly pigmented do-it-all eye-shadow stick, which also doubles up as eyeliner. Sharpen the tip with a detachable sharpener (attached at the back of the stick) for precise application and use it to shade, define, smoke-up and highlights. Its velvet powdery, lightweight texture is smudge proof and doesn’t non-transfer on the upper eyelid.

My Experience with Colorbar Olive 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 peachy brown shade. I have black on my waterline.

The shade is a beautiful wearable shade of dark green with micro shimmers; but it does not look OTT. On blending the shade loses a bit of intensity, so double swiping is required to bring out the real intense shade. It can be sported at the parties with gorgeous warm toned lip colors and muted blush.

The staying power is great as it stayed on my lids without fading or smearing. I have used it on my waterline and it did not cause any irritation. 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 a 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 and the particular shade is a personal choice/preference; other than that there are no complains about these.
