Every Indian girl loves a good kajal, and the bolder and blacker the shade, the better. Today I will be reviewing the Colorbar I Glide Eye Pencil in the shade Blackout (06). This eye pencil can be used both as an eyeliner and as a kajal on the waterline. It is also available in a number of different shades but I decided to try out black because it is the most commonly used eyeliner shade.
This eye pencil is of the kind which requires sharpening. It comes in a sleek silver body with a narrow tip that allows precise application. You can use a single swipe for a thin eyeliner look and can use multiple swipes if you want a thicker and bolder look. I also appreciate the fact that the cap of the pencil fits perfectly on the body, which is often not the case with the packaging of kajals.
The pigmentation of this shade is extremely impressive and just one swipe gives a deep jet black color to the lids. On the waterline, I feel that the application is not as smooth, and I have to go in with a couple of swipes to get the desired result. Despite this minor issue, it is still one of the most pigmented kajals in the market at the moment.
What impresses me most about this product is the fact that it completely smudges proof and waterproof and is quite long wearing. However, I have very sensitive eyes and they get mildly irritated whenever I apply the kajal on the waterline. Because of this, my eyes keep watering a little throughout the day and therefore the kajal fades at the corners within a few hours. If you do not have sensitive eyes then the product should last on your eyes for a good 8 hours.
This kajal is priced at INR 499, which seems like a reasonable price considering the pigmentation and the longevity of the product. Also, since it is not of the retractable variety and requires sharpening instead, the product will last you a really long time. Overall, I have mixed feelings about this product due to the fact that it irritates my eyes, but I do like to use it as an eyeliner instead.
If you have extremely sensitive eyes like mine then I would suggest giving this product a skip. There are several excellent alternatives available in India at the moment, such as the Plum All Day Wear Kajal and even the Colorbar Just Smoky Kajal, which is a personal favorite of mine. However, if you do not suffer from eye sensitivity then I would say that this kajal is a very good investment.
Kajal goes really well with traditional outfits, and a smudge proof and long wearing kajal are also a must-have for a busy professional who has no time touch up her makeup throughout the day. Also, if black is not your color then you can take a look at the other shades from the range, which include some nice blues, greens, and browns. So choose your perfect shade and flaunt a gorgeous eyeliner this festive season!
