Colorbar I-glide Pencil Glowing Sapphire Review

Hey all!
Today I will be reviewing Colorbar's I-Glide Pencil in Glowing Sapphire. I simply love this colour! Read on for my take on the product.

Prics: Rs. 399


The shade is Glowing Sapphire, and I must say it it just like a glowing sapphire! I love the shade!



The pencil is a sharpenable one which leads to a lot of wastage. But personally I prefer these as they are longer lasting than the retractable ones.

It has the colour indicated on the bottom part of the pencil to show the shade when it is placed amongst several other pencils.


The colour is a beautiful sapphire with glitter and shine. Beware though, too much of it during the daytime could spoil the entire look. One swipe is not enough to bring out the beauty of this colour, hence building up its pigmentation is a good option. The pencil is super creamy and glides on my eyes like butter! I love how soft they are! The only disadvantage of these soft pencils are that they tend to need constant resharpening :(


 The colour is smudge proof as well as water proof but since it contains a lot of glitter, when it comes in contact with the water the glitters tend to spread all over your eyes making it look a bit ugly. The colour lasts on my eyelids for about 6 hours without any hassle but then starts fading a bit and the glitter spreads with sweat and water :(

Pros:
- The colour is veryyy beautiful
- Lasts really long
-  Very creamy and soft

Cons:
- Glitter tends tp spread all over my face after a while
- Very expensive

Yay or nay to recommend:
I would definitely recommend this pencil! I love the colour and the glitter just adds to its beauty! It is totally worth the price and I wouldn't mind purchasing more colours from this range.
