Colorbar Just Smoky Kajal Review & Price

Colorbar Just Smoky Kajal Smudger Tip

Left : Just Teal, Right : Just Electra

See it Through my Eyes
Eyes and lips are the topic for me always. It has to be something about either the lip or the eyes, for any makeup look. The base has to be proper after which eyes and lips do all that is required to bring out the star in you. I got these Colorbar Just Smoky Kajals in two shades which most appealing to me. Lets discuss in length about these wonder pencils.

Packaging
These are tall slim dual ended sharpen-able pencils. The pencil bodies are color coded with black plastic caps. One end has the color pencil while the other has a smudger. Both the ends have fitted caps to secure the tips and make it travel friendly. The smudger is rightly shaped to fit in both small and big eyes; it is a sturdy,soft and cushiony sponge which makes smudging easy and smooth. As the pencil is sharpen-able it leads to product wastage and I am not a fan. Had it been retractable life would have been much easier, carrying a sharpener while travel could have been avoided. The outer box is silver colored with color coded bottom. I have lost them somehow, so could not  photograph that for you.

Texture & Pigmentation
The texture is creamy and velvety on application. The creaminess is not exaggerated giving it a smooth finish yet delivering smudge proof texture. I hope I make some sense.  It doesn’t give you panda eyes because it doesn’t smudge at all once set. Being creamy it doesn’t loose on its intensity.  The color is bang on rich and creamy, it’s darker in the swatch and delivers equally well on the eyes. One swipe gives opaque color and that’s quite impressive for an eye pencil. It takes a few minutes to set on the eyes, after which it is gets smudge resistant.  The smudger at the other end help smudge the kajal applied as desired. I prefer to keep it neat and closer to the lash line, rather than spreading it all over the eye as an eye shadow. My eye shadows got to perform a role as well, right?  Well that doesn’t change the fact, this product is multi functional. It works as a kajal, liner and an eye shadow. The smudger is an added bonus.

Staying Power
The staying power is quite impressive. It stays for about 6 hours if not more. Now again, the lasting time differs on the waterline and upper lash line. We know the drill right, it’s more on the upper lash line than the waterline, ofcourse depending on the amount of product applied on which the part of the eye. The color will come off completely only with the help of makeup remover. The Revlon eye and lip makeup remove works quite well. Alternatively, baby oil or olive oil can be used.  I don’t mind taking it off that way, owing the staying power and pigmentation it delivers.

Color

Just Teal : This shade is a beautiful teal as the name suggests.  The ocean and seas kinda color, I am getting dreamy describing it. In other words, it is a turquoise blue with hints of green which looks very flattering on the eyes.
Just Electra : This is my favorite shade in the entire range. It’s an ink blue and it’s beautiful on the eyes. It gives an instant lift to tired or sleepy eyes. The blue is as rich and bright as the way I like it to be. That blue thing on the eyes, make me go “blue eyes hypnotize” Blum 3 it will suit fair to medium complexion beautifully.
