Colorbar Highlighter Pen Review

Pen Style Face Highlighter


See it through my Eyes

Most of us girls are obsessed with highlighters. I am not blaming any of you, I love that glow on the face and the touch of confidence. I have already discussed about my favorite highlighter here. There are times I like to underplay it for a soft glow from within kinda look. For those days this product is the best bet.

As you already know, this is housed in a pen form. The signature silver Colorbar packaging gives it that classy look. The outer box cover is silver too with all the requisite information. The pen looks like a compact silver metal pen with a brush head for easy application directly on the skin. Just like this one. I love the metal body, only hitch is it picks up finger prints like crazy and I need to clean it repeatedly. The pen has a push pump mechanism like that of a burner lighter which helps to ooze out the product from the brush tip.

The highlighter is silver gold colored with minute glitter which melts down into the skin on blending. The application with the brush is easy and smooth, but unhygienic. This highlighter provides a very soft everyday kinda glow, which looks very natural and glow from within. It stands as a perfect everyday highlighter without making the skin look over the top. I judge a highlighter through it’s blending qualities and I must say, this one fares quite well. Blending this with fingers is the best way to do it, as this is in gel form the brush might get wet and become messy.

The highlighter has no particular color; it’s a champagne silver gold which can adapt to most Indian skin tones.
The staying power is quite decent on my combination oily skin. The cheeks and nose remain glowy and it all looks quite natural.

How I use it

I use the brush directly on the cheeks, bridge of nose, eye brow arch and cupids bow. Then blend it lightly with my fingers in dabbing motion. This gives a beautiful soft glow to my liking for a simple glowing skin.

Quick Tips

  1. Clean the brush tip with cotton infused in hand sanitizer after every use, to keep it bacteria free.
  2. Always store the pen capped upside down. This ensures product is near the neck and few pumps can extract the highlighter easily.
  3. Use it after the blush application, for a radiant look.
  4. Use fingers to dab and blend this highlighter, avoid the brush for messy application.

Recommendation: YES
NoM Report Card: 4.5/5

Final Verdict

If you are looking for a subtle everyday glow on the skin without making it obvious, this is the best bet in the market. If you are a beginner to makeup and highlighter, you can start with this. Definitely Recommended!
