I am back again with one more dud this year end after the lip gloss.. Surprisingly it is Jordana, whose cosmetics were always on my wishlist after Faces canada, since I read about it in IMBB! But still searching for someone kind enough to get me those gorgeous faces eye pencils.Well I was looking for other shades in eye pencils when I came across Jordana in one store. I was confused as I was looking for only 2-3 colors and there was treasure of gorgeous colors, each shade very appealing in itself! The irony is my cupboard is full of dresses but whenever I look at several shades I forget what color to buy to match my outfits. when my baby and hubby yell, I pick up a universal shade and leave. Anyways I was totally excited for getting brown and purple colors in Jordana without irritating my “anmol ratans” (hubby, Aadya ) over counter… 😀 But when I wore punk purple my excitement was over!

What the product Claims:

Punk rock purple shade comes in retractable pencil packaging. The color of the package co-ordinates with eye liner shade. Hence its easy to pick up the desired shade.
My Experience with Jordana Glitter Rocks Retractable Eye Liner Punk Rock Purple:
I got mixed experience with both these eye liners. Brown Suede comes under Easy liner series of Jordana which is soft brown shade with really soft touch on eyes, its already reviewed here. Punk Rock Purple was my choice, it falls under the Glitter Rocks series of Jordana, It is a real purple shade with silver glitters. Unlike brown suede its really harsh on eyes. I was expecting it to be easy gliding & smooth over the delicate eye area but its very hard to apply and tugs my eyes while applying! Moreover, when I swatched it over my hands it looked quite appealing shade but on eyes it looks very cheap. Though my hubby loves the make over but also makes fun of my make up skills, but this time he seriously kept on laughing out loud when he saw my eye liner on.. 😛 I was totally disappointed as it was not at all suiting my age & outfit. I could not comment over its long- lasting nature as I washed it off quickly. And as I already told, its not at all skin-friendly, I wonder why Jordana created this series after such soft Easy liner ones! I fear applying it over the waterline as it tugs & pulls out while application. May be my stars are not in my favor anymore as I am unable to get a single decent eye liner. I have some 4-5 eye liners by now but not a single one to die for, I am still hunting for an eye liner.. what a bad luck! Now I am waiting for my MIL who will take away all the so-called junk stuff with her for our house maids. I hope they will not beat up my MIL for such crap stuff. 😛
Somehow I managed to get eye swatch for your concern friends..
Lets sum up the Pros & cons:
Pros of Jordana Glitter Rocks Retractable Eye Liner Punk Rock Purple:
• Retractable eye liners hence no mess with sharpening.
• Real purple shade with silver glitters, may be rocking for teenagers.
Cons of Jordana Glitter Rocks Retractable Eye Liner Punk Rock Purple:
• It really tugs & pull the skin.
• Very harsh on eyes.
• Doesn’t suit on my eyes.
• Not at all safe for water line.
Over all I would say its not meant for age group like mine! May be it will rock among teenagers (if they won’t mind tugging eye liner), but for me it’s a dud totally. No softness, no easy application!! I won’t recommend Glitter Rocks Products to anyone, though you may opt for other easy liners from Jordana.
