Colorbar I-glide pencil ~ Prunella ~ pictures, review and EOTD

If you read my recent tweet where I rambled how I have found out that eye liners don't suit my eyes then I know you must be laughing now,,like whats the need of this post on eye liner then,,,
the need is there,, because its a pretty shade and I don't want any of you to miss out on this one..

Colorbar I-glide pencil ~ Prunella ~ pictures, review and EOTD

Its a pretty color, a deep purple shade with no shimmer and soft creamy texture,at times it looks like brown too, under my water line it does,,
as the name suggests,,glide,,it does glide smoothly.

It looks nice on my eyes, actually it suits brown eyes so I was happy :D

The texture is creamy, it does not smudge on my eyes,,but made them a bit watery.

The packaging is fine,,practical with the shade showing on the bottom of the pencil.

what the packaging states :


~ Extremely soft and outstanding smooth formula, almost like a liquid liner.
~ Easy to blend shortly after application
~ Waterproof, super longwear, no transfer and smudge-proof.

~ Shade is Prunella 05 , a very pretty purple~egg plant shade

~Its a gorgeous shade and is a nice color even for every day fun wear,, its not a office wear color but ya a fun shade for outings. I use very basic neutral shades as eye shadow on my lids, but as a liner it is a welcome change,,but then well,,who m I kiddin...m off liners as of now.
see it doesn't suit my eyes much ,, :\ I think it makes them appear small, when they are not actually.

p.s. I threw some 26 makeup/beauty products a day before yesterday because all they had were different compounds of paraben,  I felt good , It didn't pain me.
Paraben has some connection with it being a initiator for cancer. I go numb as read/write/hear the C word. I lost someone so very special due to it few years back, the worst thing is that you don't really know how it starts,, so for this very reason I threw everything and I have thought of checking the ingredients first,,the cute packagings are no more attractive to me,,the ingredients are... :)

On a happy note :) I am on a saree spree these days :) woohoooo!!! 3 sarees in making ;) one is a new buy ~ a chiffon saree in baby pink with crystal and stone work :D , a light purple-silver saree,,much like the one Priyanka Chopra wore in Dostana , its a decent one :) and my mum's wari saree (wari is a punjabi word , it means the clothes and jewellery the groom's side collects for the bride) its a gorgeous royal blue saree in self  print with a dull silver designer palla (the one which falls down from the shoulder ; outer end of the saree) :D  :D m so happy :D , will show them once the finishing work is completed.

Okay,,this was a L O N G post :) but you know something, I treat all of you as my friends and I feel like we all are sitting at one place and listening to one another's giggles and talks :)

oh ya...
Recommendation : get this one,,even if you are just a black eyeliner girl..it will be a good start towards the colored ones.


This pencil does not have any parabens in it :)


Price ~ Around INR 375 , yep the price has increased :\
Quantity ~ 1.1 gm

Thanks

  7. i have this n luv it a lot. u know wht even i had this feeling tht liners dont suit me till a yr back. Even now thr clear n crisp lines make my eyes look small.So wht i do is either make a very very thin line or just smudge it after applying. tht way it looks normal :) u cn try this too. ;)
    n abt the paraben thing. i was really scared initially but its too difficult to get anything without paraben in india tht i've somehow accepted thm as part of the arcel :/ sorry to hear abt ur family member. Even i lost my mami last yr coz of this n i know how painful it is.

      yes it is difficult finding makeup without parabens bt then there are some brands which don't use parabens in them.
      m sorry for your loss jyoti ..

  11. The shade is no wonder raved about and I love eggplant colors! But ever since I saw the Faces one, I would give this a pass now. I have the black one of the I-glide and it really does an impressive job for me.
