Today, I am here reviewing a reasonably priced, dry, compressed, cake eyeliner from Coloressence that I have loved for its use as a black eyeshadow more than as an eyeliner 😛 Actually, this is a “dual use” cake eyeliner which can be used as an eyeliner, when used with a wet eyeliner brush and as an eyeshadow as dry. This eyeliner comes in dry, solid cake form, and is not powdery, neither in gel form. It’s a pure black color that comes in quite a decent packaging of hard plastic cover with transparent lid with “Coloressence” written on the top. I am very fond of creating smokey eye looks and this one has proved to be very good so far, as it smudges well and does not require too much of blending as it is very smooth.
Special compressed powder cake eye liner which has unique waterproof property. Gives definition to the eyes. It remains effective for a long time with its water resistant formula. Available in black colour. Use it with wet eyeliner brush to define the eyes.
Bees wax, Citrus bergamia extract, carrot seed extract. 100% vegetarian. No animal ingredients.
Rs. 285 for 5 gm.
I love how finely pigmented it is with gold pigments just to give a slight sheen. I am a lover of matte texture cosmetics and thus, it makes a good eye shadow for me. I use it whenever I want to create smokey eyes. I use it with shimmers and sometimes just plain. The best part about this eyeliner is that it’s a great deal for its cost. It is a pocket-friendly, good quality product.
This is me, wearing it in a smokey eye look.
What I Like about Coloressence Color Your Spirit Cake Eyeliner:
- Dual use, can be used as an eyeliner as well as an eye shadow.
- Very smooth.
- A little goes a long way.
- High intensity color.
- Pigmented with shiny pigments just to give you the right look, neither too matte nor too sparkly!
- Very good quantity for its price.
- Stays for a long time as an eyeshadow, as an eyeliner it does not last too long though.
- Smudges well (this feature is a drawback as an eyeliner).
What I Do Not Like about Coloressence Color Your Spirit Cake Eyeliner:
- Short staying power, comes off and smudges within a few hours.
- Does not come with an eyeliner brush.
- Wetting the eyeliner brush to use it as an eyeliner is a bit tedious.
- Not water resistant.
Overall, this product is good with regard to quality and price, but it has certain drawbacks such as short staying power.
Will I Repurchase Coloressence Color Your Spirit Cake Eyeliner?
I guess no, unless I want to use it as an eyeshadow, but for eyeliner, I would prefer trying new products.
4/5 (as eyeshadow) 2.5/5 (as eyeliner).
