Chambor Dazzle Eye Pencil Review & Swatch

I cannot have enough colored eyeliners and purple eyeliners are my weakness. I have brown eyes and purple and green eyeliners look great on brown eyes. I had first purchased Chambor purple dazzle eyeliner about 6-7 years back and I have been repurchasing it ever since. This is my all time fav eyeliner shade. If I had to choose one eye makeup product for life, Purple Dazzle by Chambor would be it!  I have reviewed two other purple eyeliners before: Sephora (brown-plum color with pearl finish) and L’Oreal’s Le Smokey (blackish purple). I have a couple more purple eyeliners which I will review soon. Speaking of purple, have you checked some other gorgeous purple makeup products HERE?

I am reviewing three shades of Chambor Dazzle eyeliner in this post – Black Dazzle, Purple Dazzle and Teal Dazzle.

Chambor Dazzle Eye Pencil Review

Chambor Dazzle eyeliner pencils come in twist up plastic liner  with plastic cap which shuts tight.  The outer cardboard packaging has all the manufacturing and ingredient details. The white floral detailing on the liner looks attractive and shade name is printed along the side. The body of the eyeliner pencil is color coordinated to the shade so it is easy to spot if you have multiple shades. However, the recent packaging feels a little flimsy around the swivel up joint. The eyeliner twists one way and is non retractable, which is not very convenient to use as you never come to know when the eyeliner is about to finish. One time my eyeliner finished when I had lined one eye and started to line another! Luckily I had a fresh backup option with me. Also, if you twist more than what is required you cannot swivel it back down.

The texture of these eyeliner is amazing. It is not too creamy or too hard, just perfect to line the eyes smoothly. It glides on the eyes without tugging or pulling the eyelids. The pigmentation is good (though not as pigmented as Colorbar I-glides) and delivers good color in one thick swipe. You may need 2-3 swipes to build up the color intensity.

Chambor Dazzle eye pencil lasts very long. It will not budge until you remove it with oil based remover. It doesnot smudge or transfer to lower lash line (unlike THIS eyeliner by Colorbar). There is no glitter fallout in glitter shades.  If you have to put makeup on for long hours (for long journeys or weddings), these eyeliner pencils are a safe bet.

I donot advise applying these eye pencils on lower lash line as these always irritate my eyes when I do.

These eye pencils are bit pricey for the quantity but if you want a true long wear smudgeproof eyeliner these pencils are great. Also, the shade selection is amazing. I have my heart set on the Purple Dazzle shade, a color which I cannot find in other brands except Sephora which is even costlier than this!

Black Dazzle –  pigmented black color with matte finish

Purple Dazzle – blackish purple with purple microglitter. Glitter is not OTT and visible only when looked closely. This looks almost black from a distance and is my fav eyeliner for work. It is subtle enough for office wear, but shimmery enough to add a little oomph.

Teal Dazzle – beautiful teal blue color with pearl finish. Will suit all skintones.

Overall, Chambor Dazzle Eye pencil come in swivel up non retractable eyeliner packaging with cap which shuts tight. The texture is smooth and glides on eyelids without tugging/pulling. The pigmentation is good and need 2-3 swipes for full color intensity. The eyeliner is really transferproof and long lasting. It will not budge or smudge until you remove it with oil based remover. Shade selection of the Dazzle range is good. However, it is bit pricey compared to many other alternatives available. Also, the non retractable format is difficult to work with as you never come to know how much product is left. Also, if you swivel up more quantity than required, it cannot be retracted back. Black Dazzle is a pigmented black shade with matte finish. Teal Dazzle is beautiful teal color which will suit all skintones. Purple Dazzle is a gorgeous blackish purple with purple microshimmer. I absolutely love the shade Purple Dazzle and I have been repurchasing it for 6-7 years, will continue to purchase it in future as well!

Colorbar Just Smoky Kajal ~ Just Blue : Review & Swatch

 

 

Colorbar Just Smokey range has been around for some years now and I am reviewing a beautiful blackish blue color- Just Blue 005 in this post.

Colorbar makes really good eyeliners and their I-glide range is my absolute favorite. Check some of the gorgeous shades HERE and HERE.

 

Price: Rs 650 for 1.2 g

 

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.

Colorbar I-Glide Eye Pencil: Coalmine ~ Review and Swatch

Colorbar I-glide eyeliners are my all time favorite. If you have to choose only one eyeliner among all the different brands, choose this one. Colorbar I-glide eyeliners are amazing.  This is the third shade I own and I have already reviewed two shades from the range in THIS post.:

Jaded (most gorgeous jewel toned green) and

Cocobar (dark brown)

In this post I am reviewing the shade Coalmine 009.

 

Price: Rs 550 for 1.1 g

 

Colorbar I-Glide Eye Pencil: Coalmine Review

Colorbar I-glide eyeliner pencils come in a silver cardboard packaging containing all details. The eyeliner pencil is made of silver colored plastic with color coded ends and shade name engraved along the side. The cap of the pencil shuts tight. The color coded ends make it easier to identify the shade if you have multiple shades. This is a sharpenable eyelinerand not retractable, which leads to product wastage whenever you sharpen it, and being made of plastic adds to even more wastage! Also, these are not meant to be applied on waterline.

The formula of these eyeliner pencils is amazing. They are super creamy and pigmented and deliver full color in one swipe itself. The texture is super smooth and glides easily on the eyelids. Once set, the eyeliner is smudge proof and has excellent staying power (best one I have tried so far). It does not budge at all (even with light rubbing of eyes). It stays put until removed by an oil based remover.

Colorbar I-glide eyeliner in shade Coalmine is a beautiful dark grey (almost black) color loaded with silver shimmer. This color looks super pretty when worn in parties. Being a shimmer eyeliner, this is not meant for office wear but looks super pretty when worn otherwise. The shimmer is very fine and not glittery at all, giving a beautiful dimension to the overall color.

Coalmine (and Jaded) shade is a repurchase. I usually don’t buy same shades from same brand twice unless I really really like it but this shade is so gorgeous that I had to purchase it again, and will continue doing so till it gets discontinued 😛

Colorbar I-glide eyeliner come in 15 shades with different finish, and each shade suits Indian skin tone perfectly.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Colorbar I-Glide Eye Pencils are super smooth and very pigmented eyeliners. It gives full color in one stroke itself. However, being sharpenable pencils, these lead to product wastage. Also, these cannot be applied to waterline. Coamine is a beautiful dark grey color with silver shimmer. This shade is perfect for parties and evening wear. Once set, this eyeliner does not budge AT ALL. These eyeliner come in a variety of shades (15 in total) and finish, and you must check it out at the counters. You will not regret buying these, I can guarantee.

XOXO, Blossom 🙂

Colorbar I-Glide Eye Pencil: Jaded & Cocobar ~ Review and Swatch

Colorbar I-glide eyeliner pencils have been around for many years now, and being an eyeliner hoarder myself (:P), I can safely say that these are the BEST eyeliner pencils I have tried so far. The formula is simply amazing. I am reviewing two shades which I have currently ~ Jaded and Cocobar.

Colorbar I-glide Eye pencil review

Colorbar I-glide eyeliner pencils come in a silver cardboard packaging which has all the details. The eyeliner pencil is made of silver colored plastic with color coded ends and shade name engraved along the end. The color coded ends make it easier to identify the shade from multiple pencils. This is a sharpenable eyeliner and not retractable, which leads to product wastage whenever you sharpen it, and being made of plastic adds to even more wastage! This is probably the only con I could find with these. Oh, and also, these cannot be applied to waterline.

The formula of these eyeliner pencils is amazing. They are super creamy and deliver full color in one swipe itself. The texture is super smooth and glides easily on the eyelids. Once set, the eyeliner is smudge proof and has excellent staying power (best one I have seen so far). It does not budge at all (even with light rubbing of eyes). It stays put until removed by an oil based remover. I have oily lids which have started to become hooded of late :-/ so my eyeliners tend to bleed to my socket line. But this one does not budge at all.

Colorbar I-glide eyeliner come in 15 shades with different finish, and each shade suits Indian skin tone perfectly.

Jaded (a repurchase)

Colorbar I-glide eyeliner in shade Jaded is a beautiful dark green color with pearl finish. This color looks super pretty when worn in parties. This is a jewel toned shade, so it may not be suitable for office wear. But you can make it work for office wear by applying a sheer black eyeliner (I use Maybelline Colossal eyeliner) on top of this shade. You can also wear it the way I have done HERE. I use this method to wear eyeliner shades which are too light or which are too bright to wear for office.

I usually do not purchase same product or same shade twice, especially in eyeliners and nail polish, but the shade is so gorgeous that I had to purchase it again, and I will purchase it later also when this one gets finished 😛

Cocobar

Colorbar I-glide eyeliner in shade Cocobar is a dark brown eyeliner. Usually, brown eyeliners do not show well on medium to dark skin tone, but this shade is perfectly dark to be visible on the eyelids. Brown eyeliner gives a softer look as compared to black eyeliners. I had been hunting a good brown eyeliner which shows up on my eyelids, and after numerous swatches at every brand counter I find, I stumbled on this beautiful shade. I will probably purchase it again. Though it does not contain any shimmer or glitter, still you can’t apply it on waterline. I tried it once and my eyes were irritated whole day. Also, if your eyelids are darker, this shade may not show properly on the eyes; so do swatch it at the counter before buying if you have dark eyelids.
