Colorbar I Glide Eye Pencil Review

Guest Review by Dhara

A girl always craves having a dash of sparkle in her life and the new Colorbar I Glides provide us just that. Let me present to you the three new dazzlers on the block… The Colorbar I Glide Eye Pencils in Flirty Turq, Glowing sapphire and Amethyst Spark !! These super smooth, easy to apply and smudge resistant sticks come in about 12 pwetty shades…shh..don’t tell anyone..I have 9 ;) These 3 are the latest addition to my eye pencils collection. Now let me get to awesomeness of the colors.

Colorbar I Glide in Flirty Turq is a beautiful turquoise with fine turquoise shimmer. I didn’t give it a chance to flirt, I fell in love it almost instantly :p

Colorbar I Glide in Amethyst Spark, like its name is a true amethyst purple with purple sparkles which are quite visible on application.

Colorbar I Glide in  Glowing Sapphire, again aptly named, is a darkish blue with blue sparkles.

None of these are over the top, the delicately infused sparkles adding some dimension to the otherwise plain colored eye pencil. Though I am not a fan of eye pencils that need sharpening, I can let that pass for the sheer gorgeousness of the colors and quality. Most of the Colorbar I Glide  Eye Pencils last all day including these. The sparkle doesn’t travel all over the place sparing us the horror of looking like a bottle of confetti !! A word of caution- people with sensitive eyes, please don’t use on waterline. Sparkles may hurt your eye !! I didn’t test on my waterline as my eyes are Lasik operated and the medication is still on :(

These Eye Pencils in general are extremely pigmented, soft and smooth to apply with great lasting power. They go on in one quick swipe and deliver intense color throughout the day. Sharpening these can be a bit of a pain because they sharpen unevenly, but if you use the special Colorbar sharpener you wont face any such problem.

Overall Verdict: A+

Price:Rs 350…yeah Colorbar upped the MRP. @#$%^

Overall recommendation: If you like wearing colored eye liners, then stop reading this and rush to your nearest Colorbar counter to get yourself the Colorbar I Glide Eye Pencils. These are super gorgeous, and very smooth and pigmented. Definitely hoarding material!

Editors Note: I LOVE the Colorbar I Glide Eye Pencils as well, specially with the new shades out, these are just stunning!

prernam February 14, 2012 at 6:14 am

beautiful the shades look.guess i am the only one whom these dont suit..
cause all watering and reddish eyes and cuz of all that smudge too wanted to lik these :-(


mehak February 14, 2012 at 7:03 am

Really? These do not smudge on me AT AL.L. I can put my finger and rub it and it wont. .. R u sure u didnt get a bad piece? Or the I-define ones?
Reddish eyes i get when i used these on my waterline…….You should try chambor dazzle liners then…they are amazing ! And sensitive too!


prerna February 16, 2012 at 5:47 pm

lol..mehak its me who sent the chambor dazzle review..n thanks for putting it up :)
n i got iglide black one..doubt if its a bad piece though..makes my eyes reddish watery actually so maybe thats y it ends up slightly smudgy too.


mehak February 17, 2012 at 8:55 am

Lol..ohh coincidence!! haha
Reddish i understand because mine get tht too..but usually doesnt smudge..havent tried the blakc one though so wont comment. You know what though, iv noticed my eye reacts differently to diff colors. So prunella makes them slightly red, but Coal mine doesnt. Sometimes the difference is in the pigments used to make the color.


prerna February 17, 2012 at 9:11 am

oh is it?..good den maybe i can try some other colors from iglides jus scared to take the risk n dazzle has dazzled me quite a bit :p
n aint coal mine the black one..i used that only i thnk..


Revathy February 14, 2012 at 6:39 am

Neeraj February 14, 2012 at 12:55 pm

Bhumika February 14, 2012 at 3:45 pm

Vaishnavi February 14, 2012 at 5:00 pm

mk February 14, 2012 at 5:55 pm

I have never tried Colorbar before…..I like the Lakme Glide on Eye Color which I use as a liner and Makeup Forever Liner as well…they have similar colors


Khushboo May 4, 2012 at 5:21 pm

On a different note, m sorry for going off topic, but you said you got lasik done. Can you tell me all abt it? Where you got it done from, the proceedings, is it painful or not. M planning to get one done as well, but m incredibly scared of the pain and d process.
Sorry for spamming. m a regular reader of reviews here, but dint know where else to contact you.


mehak May 4, 2012 at 7:05 pm

hi khushboo i didnt get it cousin did…its not painful just slight prickly sensation
Sshe didnt face any side effects


angila mansukhani September 3, 2015 at 12:28 pm

I bough amethyst spark and it isn’t that great. The glitter is literally coming off and all over my face. Causing allergy and itching.. Is this normal?
