Review & LOTD: Colorbar I-Glide Pencil in Blackout

Colorbar I-Glide Pencil in Blackout
This is going to be a short and sweet post about the blackest of all blacks in eye liner pencils. Colorbar I-Glide pencil in "Blackout" is a jet black liner that does not smudge, does not crease and does not transfer! It's simply perfect for times when you have to put in long hours but do not get the opportunity to touch up your make-up time and again. This is one reason why I find this best for office! :)

I use it as an eye liner on my upper lashline as well as a kajal on my lower waterline. 

I will not list down its pros and cons cause they are same as it is for all I-Glide pencils. You can read my detailed review here

It costs INR 325/-

Definitely! As these pencils are really soft they need to be sharpened frequently and will get over pretty soon... So yup I will buy it again! :)

Would I recommend it?
Oh you bet!

Overall Rating


  1. Nice review ! Hope this does not smudge when applied a kajal

  2. Nice review ! Hope this does not smudge when applied a kajal

  3. how's the staying power???? I have these on my list but I have super oily lids

  4. Its definitely good dear, but a close dupe almost as good as this is faces solid black, try that !

  5. @cookdokoo: nope doesn't smudge as a kajal... but staying power is better when used as a liner than a kajal :)

    @Eve: babe trust me I have the oiliest lids in the world and they stay on for 6-7 hours on me without smuding or creasing :P

    @Taps:Faces Solid Black is similar? wow! i have got to try that out as well then :)

  6. I love Colorbar eye pencils but as Taps said you should try the Faces is the blackest black. In fact I swatched both of them side by side and the faces one is definitely the blackest pencil.

Cover The Cover: Harper's Bazaar (India) March 2012

You all know that I love tweaking my blog here and there and making some changes, introducing newer features and well sometimes just hooking the blog onto some social networking site :) Well this time I am introducing a new feature that I promise will be really exciting for all beauty enthusiasts :) To start with this feature is called "Cover The Cover" where I shall be covering the cover pages of our favorite beauty and fashion magazines in terms of make-up. There are times when a certain look on a celeb or a fashion mag just gets to us. Well rather than just mulling over such looks I have decided to give life to such looks (on me) and well do a kind of a faux photo shoot ;) What say? Doesn't it sound like fun? What more? You are all invited to submit your looks with a reference to which magazine and edition you are covering and I'll post it here :)

Today's look is inspired by my latest fav mag Harper's Bazaar. The March edition of Harper's Bazaar is a …

REVIEW & LOTD: Faces Long Wear Pencil in Navy Blue

While doing the "Meet The Bloggers" feature every Saturday, I have realised (and I am sure that you all have too) that Faces is fast becoming a very popular brand amongst us especially the Faces Long Wear pencils. So much so that a lot of people prefer Faces Long Wear pencils to even Colorbar I-Glides and that ladies and gentlemen is quite a feat for a newly launched brand. So anyways, I got myself a "Navy Blue" from this range and I must say that I am very happy with it. This is my second pencil from Faces after "Turquoise Blue" and well it hasn't failed me either.
This particular shade is a beautiful deep blue that looks stunning on the eye lids.

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…
