Maybelline Colorshow Crayon Khol - Review Swatches


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...


Well the Maybelline Colorshow Crayon Khol falls in the first category. It is uneven, not very pigmented and a little too hard to apply. Well, to put it clearly, it feels a little chalky. Plus its a little brittle and hence breaks easily. On top of it, it smells a little weird.

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...

Price of Maybelline Colorshow Crayon Khol

It costs INR 325/-

Below are images of when used as an eye liner and as eyeshadow base.

5. The price isn't justified for the quality

Well honestly, I wouldn't recommend it. But if you are really curious then you might want to check it out :) No harm there!

P.S. Product sent by PR for consideration. However, my review is honest and is in no way biased.

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: 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…

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.
