How have you all been? What plans do you have for the weekend? My weekend has started from May 1st, thanks to a queue of holidays lined up 😛 I watched 2 states – it was so dragging. *jalwa* Did not like it much *scared* Did you guys like it? I was just waiting to get out of the theatre *hihi* And now I have soo much work to do *cry* My semester is ending and it’s filled with seminar, project report etc *cry* But one thing I can’t live without is writing for IMBB *hihi*
So here I have today another product from Jordana USA. It is the Jordana USA Easyliner for Eyes in Coffee Bean. I picked this up along with some other eye liners which I am going to review soon. So let’s see how this one fared for me:

My experience with Jordana USA Easyliner for Eyes – Coffee Bean:
Just like my last post on the purple eyeliner from Jordana, I bought this color because I don’t own a brown shade 😛 I quite like experimenting these days *happy dance*
The packaging is an easy one with a brown color body and a light brown cap which closes with a click. This is a retractable eye pencil so there is no place for “wastage while sharpening” 😛 Life is so easy with a retractable pencil, hain nah? *hihi* It is very travel friendly.
Now about the color- It is a dark brown shade just like the color of a coffee bean. The name completely justifies the shade 😛 It is a matte shade with no shimmer. It is richly pigmented and glides on smoothly without any tugging. The color when applied looks almost black indoors but outdoors the actual color can be seen. For ladies who stick to black eyeliners and want to start experimenting with new shades, you can start off with this. 😀 Staying power is just average. I apply it in the morning and it stays for almost 5-6 hours but as the day goes by the color starts fading lightly. For reference, I have oily lids. So for people with dry lids, it may stay longer. One thing I hate about this eyeliner is that it smudges real bad. *scared* Even after hours of application, you just rub your eyes and you end up with panda eyes *scared* Major con! The color pay-off is really good. In the hand swatch below I have just applied one stroke 😀 For the EOTD, I have done two strokes. Now that’s a plus for me. On the whole, I have mixed feelings about this as well 😛 On one side, the pigmentation is great. On the other side, not smudge-proof *nababana*
Pros of Jordana USA Easyliner for Eyes- Coffee Bean:
• Easy and travel friendly packaging.
• Retractable 😀
• Pigmentation is great.
• Glides on smoothly.
• Doesn’t tug.
Cons of Jordana USA Easyliner for Eyes-Coffee Bean:
• Not smudge-proof.
• Average staying power.
Will I repurchase/recommend Jordana USA Easyliner for Eyes-Coffee Bean?
No, I won’t repurchase this shade again. I will try the other shades from this range 😀
Yes, I will recommend trying this for the ones who want to start experimenting with other colors than just black. 😛 It is a beautiful brown shade and if you love different colors, do give them a try.
