This Or That: Colorbar I-Glide Pencils vs Faces Long Wear Pencils

32 comments:
 
It has always been a bone of contention whether the Colorbar I-Glide Pencils were the ones to go for or whether the Faces Long Wear pencils fare better. Of course both are dear to us beauty bloggers and to all beauty enthusiasts but seriously sometimes even I am at a loss at what I should really go for. Both ranges of pencils have similar shades and similar staying power even on oily lids, so getting confused between the two is an expected deal :)


Hence, I am trying to make an endeavor to make it easier for everyone of us to finally make a decision where these two pencils are concerned :)

Similarities


Property
Colorbar I-Glide & Faces Long Wear Pencils
Staying Power
They have similar staying power. They stay on for more than 8 hours easily.
Performance on Oily Lids
They both stay on and do not transfer or smudge on oily lids. I have super oily lids and I vouch for them both
Texture
Both are super smooth texture-wise and glide on like a dream!
Availability
With Faces stores open nationwide plus with the advent of various online beauty portals, availability of both is not an issue.
Ease of Removal
Both are waterproof but can easily removed with soap or makeup remover. No tugging, no scrubbing :)

Differences


Property
Colorbar I-Glide Pencils
Faces Long Wear Pencils
Price
They cost Rs. 375/- per pencil
They cost Rs.249/- per pencil
Quantity
Each pencils weighs 1.1 gms
Each pencil weighs 1.5 gms
Color Selection
Decent range of shades available
The range of shades available in this pencil is a tad bit more that those of the Colorbar ones :)

Verdict
Though the competition was really close, Faces Long Wear Pencils win by a slight margin mostly on the basis of the cost of the pencils :) Other than that it is super difficult to judge on the better pencil :)

What is your take on it?
