It’s scorching heat here with the temperature still rising in Bangalore and the unexpected showers were such a relief, but it anyway didn’t last long, it’s back to what it was, hot! With this heat, I really didn’t dare stepping out over the weekend, so stay put at home and started fiddling with things lying around my dressing table. It was then I decided to play around with my eye pencils. So, here is the review of one of my favorite eye sparkler from Revlon Colorstay – Blue Spark.
The other shades – Green and Brown have already been reviewed on IMBB a long time ago, and I got my second pencil a few months ago. The first time around when I purchased this one, it was INR 395 (November 2010), and now its Rs. 470! Gosh!! But anyway, that didn’t stop me from buying this.
Define your eyes with luxurious and dramatic Revlon Magic Eyeliner. Its silky smooth texture glides on easily adding drama and definition to your eyes. The Colorstay formula ensures up to 16 hours wear without feathering, smudging or fading.
INR 470 for 1.5 gm.
My Take on Revlon Colorstay Sparkling Eyeliner in Blue Spark:
This one’s a gorgeous, almost royal blue shade with very fine glitter. I absolutely love this shade, especially the shimmer. I used it almost every other day during the winter season which we never had, last year here. I used to sleep for long hours and get up with small eyes, and this was my savior. It has very fine, subtle shimmer which stayed almost an entire day ~ 7-8 hours on me. The color never faded nor smudged. I really don’t know if it last for 16 hours, like it claims, but it surely does stay on me for a pretty long time.
Packaging: The usual standard pencil packaging, with a cap. The ends of the pencil and the cap define the shade. The cap doesn’t have a sharpener and I had a hard time sharpening this one. I don’t know if I just got a defective piece, but it just doesn’t sharpen neatly at all. I could never get that proper sharp tip with this pencil, but nevertheless, I love this shade so much; I used it with whatever shape it was.
Texture: It is not very creamy, but creamy enough to smoothly glide on. It didn’t melt in this heat too. Never faded on me till I had it on. The glitter was still there, well most of it, when I had to remove this at night. It is not very coarse, but very fine micro shimmer.
The only problem I had with this pencil was the removing part. It just doesn’t go. I need to use the make-up remover twice to remove it completely and still a little blue stain remains there. I love this shade, but while removing it at the end of the day, it’s a real pain.
So, here you go.
Pros of Revlon Colorstay Sparkling Eyeliner in Blue Spark:
- Lovely gorgeous hues.
- Super pigmented.
- Creamy, smooth application.
- Very fine shimmer, which doesn’t look over the top.
- Doesn’t fade, doesn’t melt and stays long.
- And yes, its water proof!!
Cons of Revlon Colorstay Sparkling Eyeliner in Blue Spark:
- No sharpener attached. It would have been a lot easier if it had been there with the cap. I have to struggle as they don’t sharpen smoothly (or maybe mine was just a defective piece).
- Difficult to remove.
Do I Recommend Revlon Colorstay Sparkling Eyeliner in Blue Spark?
I would recommend. They have very gorgeous vibrant hues. Awesome color payoff, but I wouldn’t repurchase this. Its a little expensive now and there are a lot others I would want to try out.
