Colorbar Warm Eyeshadow Palette Review

The colorbar eyeshadow palettes are quite a nice set of eyeshadows to begin your e/s collection with. Priced decently, it has a nice combo of colors which can be worn by itself and paired with each other as well.

The palette comes in a sleek silver colored packaging with a small transparent covering on the top which makes it easier to spot incase you own both the palettes like me. There is also a mirror on the inside which is useful while travelling. It has a sponge tip applicator which is best ignored :)

Price : Rs. 499 for 9 gms (1.8 gms x 5)

The warm palette has 5 warm-toned eyeshadows : DUNE, BRUN, HUMID, PLUMFUL & MYSTERY

DUNE : This is a pink color with some peachy undertones. This color is less pigmented compared to the other 4 colors in the palette

BRUN : This is a dark brown shade.

HUMID : A dark olive green color.

PLUMFUL : A very pretty plum color.

MYSTERY : A taupe color

All the 5 shades have a very slight shimmer to them. The shimmer is nothing OTT.

What I like about Colorbar Warm Eyeshadow Palette :
  • The variety of colors is quite nice and all the colors are usable. There isnt a single color which I havnt been able to use until now.
  • The pigmentation is quite good. The swatches above are all without a primer.
  • The fallout is very less so you wont end up with e/s all over your cheeks while doing up your eyes.
  • The staying power is quite good. It has stayed upto 4-5 without fading and that too without any primer. Just concealer or foundation as a base. 
  • Very travel friendly. The packaging is quite sleek and compact which makes this very convenient to be carried around. 
  • Priced very decently for the amount and quality you get. This would be a very good palette for beginners who are just experimenting with colors and eyemakeup.  

What I dont like about Colorbar Warm Eyeshadow Palette :
  • These need to be patted on the eyelids and if you try 'painting' these shadows on the lids, the colors wont show at all.
  • Gets a bit difficult to blend at times
This may not be the best palette in the market but for the price I've paid I am quite happy with what I've got. I am not a pro at eye makeup and this palette is giving me good enough options to experiment and explore various colors.

Have you tried the colorbar palettes?
