Colorbar I-Glide Eye Pencil Silver Hue Review

Knock, Knock.

Who’s there?
Silver Who?
Not Silver Who silly, its Silver Hue! The Colorbar I-glide Eye Pencil Silver Hue!

The Colorbar I glide Eye Pencil in Silver Hue is an intensely bright,white silver with a metallic finish. Its a color that makes me look like a bit of an alien when worn along the eyelids as a regular liner, its just too ‘out there’ for my warm skin, but it is a really nice inner corner color, or even sometimes a soft base or matte eyeshadows. The metallicness shines through the matte eyeshadows and gives it that extra oomph. Because its so bright, i think its use as a liner is limited to very pale, cool toned girls. I do feel that i cannot do without my Colorbar I Glide Silver Hue for my inner corner- it just instantly adds so much brightness to the eyes and awakens them!

General Thoughts on Colorbar I Glide’sColorbar I-Glides deliver on almost all fronts- they are incredibly soft, really smooth to apply and are very pigmented. One swipe and you are sorted !They last the whole day and dont fade , plus they dont irritate ultra sensitive eyes like mine- i have used them on the waterline too and they causes a slight redness but my eyes get red with everythng except clinique.The one issue i have with them is that they are really hard to sharpen- not only do they sharpen unevenly but they keep breaking off and it ends up in a lot of product wastage. Now, there is a special sharpener which Colorbar claims is specifically for the I-glides, but the sharpener costs some 200 bucks, and in general i think good eye pencils should sharpen with ease with any sharpener.

Overall Verdict : A
Pigmentation:5/5 Texture: 4.5/5 , Longevity :5/5 , Other (Packaging, Value):3.5/5

Price: Rs 325/-

Recommendation: Colorbar I glide in Silver hue is an intensely bright, white silver . I can imagine it working as an eyeliner only for really really pale, cool toned girls, because its very outer spac-ish on my medium skin tone. However its a fantastic inner corner shade, it instantly awakens the eye. Colorbar I Glides are some of the best pencils in the market and quality wise this one is no diferent.

I love using silver eyeliners – I generally pair them with for nights with my black tops :-D

Hello. Nice post. Can you please tell which product have you used on the lower lash? I am looking out for color ful kajals apart from black for my lower lash, but I am not able to find anything promising. Thanks in advance.
