After reading a lot of raves and praises about some great products that Colorbar has to offer on IMBB and other blogs, I too went out to hunt for them in my city (Jaipur). I had a big list of items to check out – I glide pencils, blushes, lipsticks, Eye shadow palettes, concealer, lip liner and of course nail paints. I tried to order them online but I couldn’t find all the products listed on the Colorbar website. It seems the website hasn’t been updated for ages. After several visits to the market, I found out a store that had most of the Colorbar products and testers too.
I was too excited. However, the shop owner hadn’t even heard of a few products that Colorbar makes. He didn’t know anything about the existence of ColorBar warm and cool eye shadow palettes. He showed me singles instead. I asked him for eye glide pencils: he showed me the six colors. I asked him for the new launches. He stared at me. He wasn’t aware of new launches at all. I asked him for blushes he showed me 6 testers. I asked him for “Peachy Rose”. He replied saying he didn’t have a tester and no such shade exists. He showed me “Cosmic Rose“instead. I requested to check again and he said he would have to check in his warehouse. He went into his warehouse and came back with peachy rose blush from his warehouse. I was too happy and he was surprised himself. The shop owner and the SA were very friendly. After a lot of swatching and playing around with testers I picked up a few products.
I finally picked up I-glide pencils in Prunella and Jaded for myself and Electra and Silver Hue for my sister, Peachy Rose blush (my first blush) and Star Shine lip Gloss for both of us. We got two pouches free. Yay! I totally am in love with all of these products and I wonder what took me so long to have these wonderful products in my life. I know what I was missing.
My sister has picked up lot more lip glosses after that. I have visited the store almost 10 times after this hoping that they would have the new I-glide pencils but they have no updates about them yet. I have even left my Contact information with them so that they would inform me the moment they get them. I hope they come here soon- I am dying to get those. Unfortunately the website doesn’t mention about the new shades either.
I visited Mumbai few weeks later and being a big city I thought I would find them in Mumbai. May be there was supply problem in Jaipur. But the situation there was worse. Something or the other was out of stock.
I really want someone from ColorBar to read this. After using these products I am a total Colorbar convert. I love, love and love the products I own. I confess – I am a diehard ColorBar fan. My list of products to check out doesn’t end. Being a newbie in makeup, it’s a great way for me to learn before I graduate to move onto higher end products. They have some great products to offer at very good prices. I have a lot of faith and respect for Colorbar as a brand and I hope they keep making better products. I am eagerly waiting for them to re-launch the Concealer. ColorBar, please don’t launch your most sought after and raved products as Limited Edition products.
If supply in all cities is an issue please and that could take time to work out, please update your website so that we have the flexibility to shop online.
I am sure a lot of people using ColorBar products might have faced a similar situation sometime. ColorBar, please keep making good products and I hope you solve this issue soon.
Last but not the least, Thank you Rati and Fellow IMBBians for introducing me to Colorbar and keeping us updated about new launches. I can’t thank you enough. Love you all.
