REVIEW: Coloressence Vibgyor Matte Eye Shadow EM-4

Coloressence Vibgyor Matte Eye Shade EM-4

ISLM Writer: Sanchita

Hello dolls! It has been ages that I wrote for ISLM and God! How I missed it! I have been MIA for a long time due to some reasons but now it time for an eyeshadow review. I have a weakness for matte brown eye shadow and I generally hoard every possible one in the market. MAC is a little bit ‘out-of-my-range’ because I am still a college student and hence I concentrate more on other budget friendly ones. I suddenly saw this matte brown eye shadow from Coloressence I stock and wasted no time in ordering this. Read on to know about my thoughts on the product.

Product Description

Coloressence presents this ‘Single Matte Eye Shadow-4’, which will make your eyes look even more attractive. Non-greasy and anti-allergic, this eye shadow ensures a smooth texture. Offering a neat and refined finish, this eye shadow is an ideal pick!

My Review of Coloressence Vibgyor Matte Eyeshadow

The eye shadow comes in a rectangular matte black casing with transparent lid. The packaging is way sturdy than what I expected with the necessary information written on it. However, the mirror and applicator is missing. Nevertheless, I really like the packaging and it is a great one for travelling purposes.
The shade is a medium deep true brown with cooler undertones. It is completely matte without any trace of shimmer. I adore the shade like anything and whenever I want a crease color for smoky eyes or neutral eye, this is my go-to color for every occasion. Although I have a warmer skin tone, but the color compliments my complexion so well that I can used it for any eye makeup. Due to its matte finish, I sometimes also use it for deepening the contour as well. I wouldn’t exactly advice it for beginners, but you can surely try it out. FYI, it is a deeper version of MAC Saddle.

The texture is a stunner too. It is creamy powdery to touch and the softness of it helps to blend out on the eye lids so flawlessly. Generally matte eyeshadows are chalky but this one is pure love. You can also use the eye shadow with a damp brush and still the texture is smooth. The fallouts are there if you are not very careful but once you dust off the excess, you are good to go.

Pigmentation & Staying Power 

It is so well pigmentation that you don’t need to layer over and over again. Single swipe or two picks up the right amount of color for the lids. When you use the eye shadow with a damp brush it really gives a deep color pay off. I generally use that for deep brown smoky eye and the dry one for crease.
The staying power varies with or without primer. Without primer, the color stays for around 4-5hours with slight creasing and fading after the mentioned time. With primer, it stays on for more than 8hours on my lids (even during the summer) and never creases or fades off.

Final Words

A wonderful deep brown matte eyeshadow, with satin texture, commendable pigmentation and amazing staying power within a budget friendly price tag. What else do you want?

What I Liked About Coloressence Vibgyor Matte Eyeshadows:

  1. Sturdy and well-made packaging.
  2. A medium deep true brown matte eyeshadow with cooler undertones.
  3. Satin soft texture.
  4. Good color pay off.
  5. Can be used dry and wet.
  6. Blends flawlessly.
  7. Good staying power with and without primer.
  8. Reasonable price tag

What I Disliked About Coloressence Vibgyor Matte Eyeshadows:

  1. Mirror and applicator missing
  2. They should introduce more shades. (Not exactly a con but an advice)

Overall Rating:

A highly recommended brown eye shadow with such great texture and pigmentation as well as the budget friendly price tag.


  1. The shade is lovely. I feel like that even if they had given an applicator it would have been a sponge one that wouldn't have lasted long.

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…
