REVIEW: Colorbar Radiant Glow (Eclat Lumiere) Highlighter


Hey Ey Ey Hey Ey Ey... Girl gone wild... A Good Girl Gone Wild!!! As Madonna swoones about going wild to the beats of Avicii, I sit here typing out this post at a speed that would put bullet trains to shame... Why? Because the pati is waiting for me to finally come to dinner so that we can together gorge into our subs and watch the Lone Survivor...






So I want to blabber much and come straight to the point about this pen highlighter from Colorbar... The Colorbar Radiant Glow Highlighter is an Indianized (and hence more pocket friendly) version of the YSL Touche Eclat Highlighter and does excatly what it was made to do... Highlight... Let us for the time being not compare it to its more expensive counterpart and look at the product objectively and impartially...

Price of Colorbar Radiant Glow Highlighter

It costs INR 525/-
 

It comes in one shade that is best described as a Champagne-y shimmer and highlights pretty well... Texture wise, it is neither too runny nor too dry and is hence perfect for blending... It is buildable and hence I recommend using little at first and then gradually build it up depending on how much you want it...



Instead of a subtle golden-ish highlight, this Colorbar highlighter gives a more in your face silvery shimmery effect, and hence may not be a product that you'd want to use everyday. It is however perfect for functions, weddings and all the pomp!

The shimmer particles are a little chunky...

It comes in a pen applicator form with a synthetic brush for an applicator. The brush is good quality, helps in easy application and the click-click part makes it very easy to carry while traveling... The packaging looks pretty but is a little cheap to touch...

Colorbar Radiant Glow Highlighter versus YSL Touche Eclat Radiant Touch

  1. YSL Touche Eclat fares better where quality of the packaging is concerned. It is heavier while the Colorbar one is really light and a little plasticky...
  2. The Colorbar Highlighter has chunky shimmer particles that gives a shimmery effect to the face and is perfect for parties, weddings and functions... The YSL highlighter on the other hand has micro light reflecting particles that gives a subtle glow to the skin and makes it look radiant. Its great for everyday wear.

Recommendation:

If you are looking to get a shimmery effect for the wedding in your family and don'r want to spend a bomb on it, then the Colorbar Radiant Glow Highlighter is worth a shot :) 


And this is the song that I am talking about :)

  1. I recently bought this one....It is a decent one, but I somehow liked Revlon skinlights better.

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 of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...




Price of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick It costs a whopping INR 999/-

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018 Denim is forever. It's versatility makes it a classic and in the form of a jacket it not just looks dapper and en vogue but is also comfortable and convenient... I love denim jackets because they are perfect for Pune's so called Winters and because they are the best accessories for any kind of outfit...




Going through some of the Fall Winter 2017-18 collections from the likes of Calvin Klein, Christian Dior and Stella McCartney, denim on denim seemed to be the trend in boxy and boyish silhouettes. I am not a very big fan of denim and denim and hence I prefer to pair my boxy denim jacket with a flowy, floral dress that makes the look strike a balance between feminine and androgynous.
