Nykaa Glamoreyes Eyeliner Pencil – Azure Charm 05 : Review & Swatch

 

Nykaa launched Glamoreyes Eyeliner Pencils a while back and recently added more shades to the range. In this post I am reviewing a gorgeous sapphire blue shade- Azure Charm.

Blue and purple eyeliners are my weakness and I have reviewed some other blue eyeliners here : Colorbar Just Smokey (shade Just Blue), Chambor Dazzle eyeliner (shade Teal Dazzle), L’Oreal gel eyeliner (shade sapphire blue).

Nykaa Glamoreyes Eyeliner Pencil Azure Charm Review

Nykaa Glamoreyes eyeliner pencils come in sharpenable pencil form  with plastic cap which shuts tight.  The outer cardboard packaging has all the manufacturing and ingredient details. The body of the eyeliner pencil is color coordinated to the shade so it is easy to spot if you have multiple shades. The silver detailing on the pencil is attractive which doesnot fade with time (unlike THIS eyeliner pencil).

Nykaa Glamoreyes eyeliner is soft and creamy and glides easily without any tugging or pulling on the eyelids. These are intensely pigmented and 2 swipes gives full color intensity.

These eyeliner pencils are not smudge proof and do smudge when rubbed. The smudging is more if you have hooded eyes or oily eyelids. Since this is in pencil form it needs to be sharpened which leads to product wastage.

Azure Charm is a very unique sapphire blue shade with greenish blue glitter. Being a glitter eyeliner, this is not meant for office wear but looks super pretty when worn otherwise. The shimmer is very fine and not OTT, giving a beautiful dimension to the overall color.

I donot advise applying this eye pencils on lower lash line as the glitter may irritate the eyes.

Pricewise, these eyeliner are not very expensive. But sharpening does lead to product wastage, which is a con.

Colorbar Just Smoky Kajal Just Blue Review

Colorbar Just Smokey Kajal is a double ended pencil with kajal at one end and the smudger at the other end. Both the ends of the pencil are fitted with black, plastic caps which can be interchanged. The pencil comes in Colorbar’s standard silver cardboard packaging with all the details about products and ingredients. The color of the eyeliner pencil is coordinated with the kajal shade making it easier to sort if you have multiple shades from this range. The silver detailing on the packaging is attractive which doesnot fade with time (unlike THIS eyeliner pencil).

Colorbar Just Smokey Kajal is soft and creamy and glides easily without any tugging or pulling on the eyelids. These are intensely pigmented and one swipe gives full coverage. These can be applied on waterline as kajal (kohl) or on eyelids as eyeliner. I like to wear it as eyeliner more than as kajal. When applied on waterline, it does not sting or make the eyes dry.

The smudger has dome shaped sponge tip which does a decent job in smudging to create a smokey look. But you have to be fast and smudge before this kajal sets. I use it only to smudge my kajal on waterline.  These kajal pencils are not smudge proof and do smudge when rubbed. The smudging is more if you have hooded eyes or oily eyelids. This is a long pencil and quantity is sufficient. But it needs to be sharpened which leads to product wastage.

Just Blue is a very unique shade which touches the right strings of my heart! It is a blackish blue/green color which looks amazing on brown eyes. I LOVE blackish (not black, black-ish! :P) eyeliners which are not black but some other color, but are so deep in color that it looks black, which makes it gorgeous and totally work-appropriate. It says blue but somehow looks deep green color to me. It looks blue/green after smudging, and looks blackish otherwise.

There is one small thing though, if you rub your eyes with this eyeliner on, or keep applying many layers of this, it starts to come off in flakes, like bits of an eraser 😐

Nonetheless, I absolutely love this shade and even though the I-glide range is better (and easier on pocket), I will still keep on repurchasing when it gets over. This is my second purchase already.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(See the smudging under the eyes?)

 

Overall, Colorbar Just smokey kajal in shade Just Blue is a gorgeous blackish blue/green eyeliner with a smudger at the other end. It is highly pigmented and applies like charm. One swipe is sufficient for full coverage. However, the pencil needs to be sharpened which leads to product wastage. Also, this is not smudge proof and it will smudge especially if you have hooded eyes and oily eyelids. If you try to smudge this kajal after it sets, it comes off in flakes which may irritate eyes. But nonetheless,  I will still repurchase this as I absolutely adore this blackish blue color.

 

Pssst, the nailpolish I am wearing in the pics above is one of the nailpolish in THIS post.
