Review of Maybelline Colorshow Crayon Khol in Violet
Since my childhood I was never a very artistic kid. I mean generally children supposedly love to draw and color and stuff but I never enjoyed it and even though my parents tried to get me into the "groove" I never relented. Imagine the frustration they had especially since one of them is a fabulous oil painter and the other is into creating some out of this world sketches... And so finally they gave up on me...
However, one thing that I distinctly remember is the texture of crayons. Now remember when we were kids there came 3 kinds of crayons, one was the wax crayons that never gave a smooth and opaque color payout. The second kind was the plastic crayons that were smooth and silky to touch and colored a little too smoothly almost as if they would slip from your hands and then there was the third kind, the oil crayons that had crazy crazy pigmentation, was smooth and even and a created a thick coat of color on whatever you were coloring...
But not all is bad with this little piece of color. It stays put for pretty long without fading, smudging or flaking and hence is fabulous as an eye shadow base...
