Colorbar Precision Waterproof Eyeliner Review, Photos, Swatches


I got the Colorbar eyeliner. Why ?? Because my roommate put water in my old lotus liner bottle and spoilt it. This was long ago but I was just plain lazy to get another one and I had a lot of acne scarring also .I usually avoid eyeliner when I have any ‘daag’ on my ‘chand sa mukhda’ because I feel it highlights the scars. So the scars are finally clearing and I am wearing eyeliners now.
Coming to the review now –

Colorbar Waterproof Eyeliner

What it looks like – A black coloured plastic bottle with the very infamous Colorbar ‘USA’ .Bottle looks cheap and flimsy.
Colour – Black. Blue and brown are also mentioned on their website but the SA was clueless. Would love to see the blue, sad its not available.
Price – Rs.180/- for 2.5ml

Packaging – It comes in a very tiny plastic jar and has a regular dip in felt tip like applicator instead of the brush. A big plus point for me since I am clumsy with those small brushes.

Colorbar Waterproof Eyeliner

What it is like – A liquid liner, easy to apply which dries as matte black. If you like your eyeliners having high sheen, you might not like this.

(Please ignore the highly inartistic swatches. I was super irritated about my damn camera and thus the frustration)
Waterproof Test – Since it is mentioned as water proof eyeliner, I decided to put it through what I call the waterproof test. I put my hand under running water for say about a minute to see what happens.

And after a slight wipe –

WAIT WAIT WAIT !! Here’s one tricky situation now, although it is failed the water proof test but when applied on the eyes it doesn’t come off with water unless you rub it too much when its wet. Like, if you splash your face with water and pat dry it won’t budge but if you rub it hard it will smudge and come off. I have worn it many times but haven’t been embarrassed till now. It stays on until I come home and remove it. One more thing, on eyes it doesn’t come off with water or normal makeup remover, a lot of effort is needed. I use my Revlon Eye and Lip Makeup Remover and then only it comes off totally.

How it looks on me –

I applied it as a thin line and it worked that way as well .No, I am not showing off my cute little hair pin.

Coming to pros and cons –

Pros of Colorbar Waterproof Eyeliner

  • It is a dark intense black.
  • Felt tip applicator, a big pro for me.
  • Stays on eyelids for hours, no smudging, feathering bleeding or any datty thing happening.
  • Is cheap .180 bucks and will last long.

Cons of Colorbar Waterproof Eyeliner

  • Hate the packaging .it doesn’t even come in an outer carton. The silver printing on the flimsy black bottle looks rather cheap.
  • I really couldn’t figure out the logic behind it staying on the eyes and coming off so easily when swatched. Maybe it settles down totally after some more time. Still confused.
  • No ingredients mentioned.
  • Although the website mentions a blue and brown variant, it isn’t available anywhere.

What I think – Overall, I like it because its cheap and is intense black .The felt tip is easy to apply with .It stays on eyes until I remove it .I hate the packaging, at least the bottle needs to be of a better quality.

Will I repurchase? – No, I will go back to my lotus eyeliner .The new bottle is too cute.

Rating – 3.5/5

            1. It’s not my day today :stars: i used that $ 2 wali NYX lip pencil and it reacted on my lips. Now I have a full fledged Angelina Jolie’s pout :victory2: :headbang:

                  1. You should have washed it off..I used to get that irritating feeling with some Revolon lip gloss..I read somewhere is due to something used in some lip-plumping claims wale products..(not all are irritating I think, but I never bothered to experiment after that)

          1. ufff !! yeh aaj kal ka generation :spank: :spank: :toothygrin:

                1. You wait, I’ll take revenge. :violinbash:

                  You know naina, I was standing in my bal;cony the other day and talking to Radhika. Two doggies came and started doing :shutmouth: 😮 I was super curious and I started and told radhika also O:) O:)

                  1. “I was super curious and I started and told radhika also”

                    What did you start????? She didnt tell me imagination going bonkers 😮 :hypnotized: :hypnotized:

                    1. 😆 : 😆 omg, typorani meant “stared” not started…she won’t start with a dog or maybe i think too highly of her to stoop to such levels 😐

                  2. ha ha ha ha ha ha!!! Doggieeeeeeeees…..I have seen them doing that a lot when I was in Rajasthan…I always used to wonder why they do so much in Rajasthan only..never saw dogs doing anything else anywhere else!!! 😐

                    1. no cali. thats not true. Delhi dogs are a very enthusiastic and energetic bunch :vampire: we used to watch them doing it even inside my school premises when i was a child :vampire:

                    2. OMG!! Dogs in Pune are no less!! I see them doing almost every morning when i leave work.. :snicker: :snicker: that too too subah subah 7:30 ..Dogs will be dogs.. 😐 😐 😐

  3. ok since this has come up , i have a doubt . yesterday two doggies were doing something something standing in opposite direstions . as in one facing north and one facing south .. how?? ?:) ?:) ?:) ?:) ?:) ?:)

          1. Ya mine too I think..but I am still not used to her standing and I don’t know how to tell her “stop staring and do your work” :((

            1. me wearing me wearing….with siahi kurta ….heheh…am flauting tooo….and naina i hv seen that toooooo :secret2: :secret2: :secret2: :shutmouth:

  4. hi naina… Nice review.. I had bought this four months back but inspite of everyone praising the brush, i cud not use the felt tip kinda thing for gettin a thin line. I am used to the brush i guess. So what i did was a emptied the contents in my previous elle 18 bottle with a syringe. I know it’s crazy but cant help and now im happy with it…

  5. Jabse tere nainaaaaa :whistle: :whistle: :whistle:

    :thanks: naina…I was waiting for this review!! And cute hairclip btw!! Send it across 😛

  6. Your roomate put water in your eyeliner 😯 😯 😯 😯 😯 😯 😯 😯 ….to dilute it :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2:

  7. even my mom says not to use eyeliner when i have any acne blemish or scar because she too feels that it highlights the other scars…… :worship: :worship: :worship:

  8. Nice and Detailed review Naina!!! :victory: :victory: :victory: Loved reading it!!! :rose: :rose: :rose: And I think I will get either this one or the Lakme felt tip liquid liner (coz I like Lakme’s purple-bottle-golden-lid combo very much :)) ) the colorbar liner intense black??? ?:) ?:)

  9. great review Naina… 🙂 Thouh i must say I simply love this liner… it stays on for 24 hours on my oily lids and thats a huge PLUS for me 🙂
