2 Colorbar Colored Brushes Eyelluring Eyeshadow Brush & Fabulous Lip Brush
You know how sometimes you snap out of a zone where you used to prefer pretty much everything from high end brands and feel like going back to times when you started your journey with beauty & how picking up simple, non-expensive things made you happy? I am in a similar phase right now & rediscovering those budget buys that do just as perfect a task as their expensive competitor would do makes me extremely overoyed. That’s exactly how I feel about Colorbar Colored Brushes – Eyelluring Eyeshadow Brush & Fabulips Lip Brush. Love the combination of the red & white – they definitely do stand out in my vanity.
Claims About Eyelluring Eyeshadow Brush: Shade up like a pro with this superbright eyeshadow brush (and we aren’t talking about the spunky red fibers). Whether you want a soft wash of color or a dramatic eye look, blending has never been easier with this little hardworker.
Application: Blend eyeshadow onto lids with soft, firm strokes. Keep blending and diffusing color for the look you want. Gently clean the brush by washing with mild shampoo and cold water, rinse and leave to air-dry.
That’s some really fancy words from Colorbar describing its brushes! This was my first buy when they first launched these brushes and I read some really bad reviews about these back then. It seems Colorbar has since then worked on the poor quality and made some changes to these. But my experience with the Eyelluring Eyeshadow Brush has been good. This brush is rounded off at its edges & is slightly tapered. It does pack on eyeshadow really well on the lids but I find it a little short in height – I mean the bristles part. Had it been a little bit longer, this brush would have been perfect! The bristles are synthetic made so no shedding at all. It is a densely packed brush & has a slightly stiff texture, which actually makes applying color easy.
For applying an overall lid color, it is not so great due to its short frame, but it is great for smoking that eyeliner on the eyes or even packing intense color near the lashline. It is also good when used to highlight under the browbone. The red bristles does not bleed color when washed, it remains as it is. The brush is nice & soft and does not feel harsh on the skin.
Claims About Fabulips Lip Brush: Your favorite lip color meets its match in this sleek lip brush that’s just flat out fantastic! The unique square edge applies even the creamiest color without straying and the brush thickness makes it quick and easy.
Application: Use the flat side of the brush to apply product with short strokes and blend evenly across your lips. Gently clean the brush by washing with mild shampoo and cold water, rinse and leave to air-dry.
Fabulips Lip Brush is very different from those pointed ‘V’ Shaped lip brushes, but it is fantastic to apply color on the lips. The square shape makes it really simple to define your ycupid’s bow. I begin by criss crossing two lines at cupid’s bow like an ‘X’ mark This brush is also slightly tapered which is great getting into the corners of the mouth quite precisely without getting the color on your face, saves time in cleaning afterward.
I do not use lip brushes on a day to day basis but with those Inglot lipstick refills I have in my stash, it is a must have brush. Also, for those bold bright red colors, this brush is perfect for precise application. This one too like the eyeshadow brush does not shed, bleed or do anything nasty. Only thing I wish is that Colorbar makes these lip brushes in retractable form. I can’t carry it around in my bag, I have to rely on my Vega Retractable Lip Brush when I am travelling.
BTW, Colorbar brushes are way better in quality compared to Vega ones. I have two professional brushes from Vega – lip & eye brush for about more than 1.5 years and their handles are cracking open. I am using both of these Colorbar brushes for about 8 months now, they are as sturdy as new.
