Outdoor day makeup can sometimes fall flat if you pick the wrong products… Sometimes the foundation oxidizes and turns orangey, sometimes the eyeshadow is blinding or the highlighter can make you look like a bulb! The key is to keep it soft and simple by using softer shades and lesser shimmer.
A good elaborated dressing up is loved and desired by every girl, a half cut crease or a deep smokey eye makeup or a statement lip…. whatever it is, when practicality hits, we end up wrapping up the ‘get ready’ episode as soon as we can. This is when your quick makeup skill comes to rescue.

A liquid eyeliner is a great option for a quick go to makeup or an everyday wear. I got this new Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner from Colorbar, which is one of their new launch; and have loved wearing it each day. Read on the detailed review below:
What the brand claims:
“The Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner is long-lasting and does not smudge, crack, flake or peel. With its high definition flexible felt tip applicator, one stroke is enough to define a fine or thick line. Fast drying, Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner is suitable for sensitive eyes and those who wear contact lenses too!”
It comes in a small black plastic bottle with the band name and product details printed over. The brush wand has a silver outer body and is quite convenient for application. Talking about the brush, my liking towards felt tip applicators is not so great. The tip is not at all flexible as claimed by the brand, one has to work with great precision for neatness. Whereas a more flexible tip would have made things more easier. Beginners might have problems dealing with a brush like this.
At the same time, it’s non flexible nature helps neater application in the inner corners of the eye, where a flexible tip tends to go messy sometimes.
The pigmentation is quite an impressing factor here.It’s deep opaque black and looks quite striking.
Texture and Quality
I personally like matte eyeliners over glossy finish. This eyeliner come in a matte texture but not matte to an extend that looks dried and stiff, which is a good thing.
I wouldn’t call it waterproof, would rather label it as water resistant. It comes off easily with slight rubbing with water.
The first day I wore this liner to a mall where it happily lasted for 8-10 hours! But on usual office days where your eyes tend to get watery and tired (which is absolutely not the case when you are out shopping :P) the eyeliner stays neat only up till 4-5 hours after which it starts flaking off a bit.
You can buy it for INR 340/- HERE
Why it couldn’t make 5/5?
- Not absolutely waterproof as the product claims
- Tend to fade off after 4-5 hours
- The felt tip application make the application slightly challenging
- Loved the pigmentation and texture
Let me know if you have used it before, you can also suggest me some of your favorite liquid eyeliners. 🙂

Maybelline Falsies Mascara
Maybelline Rebel Boutique REB-07 Lipstick (Reviewed here)
Step – 1:
I use Maybelline Fit Me Compact as a base, It comes with an applicator, you wouldn’t really have to reach out for a powder brush.
Also use it over the eyelids to avoid oily lids during the day.
Now take very little amount of REB-07 Lipstick and dab it on to your cheeks. This acts as a cream blush.
Time taken – 00:01:00
Step – 2:
Grab on the Maybelline Falsies Mascara and apply 2 coats on the upper and lower lashes. I absolutely love this mascara. It instantly adds length and volume. You will have to be careful here to avoid any sort of injury to the eye in the moving car.
Time taken – 00:01:30
Step – 3:
Now comes the final and the last step! Take out your weapon and wear it on! The lipstick I mean 😛
I use REB-07 quite often, It’s a beautiful bright pink shade and lasts all day without touch-ups 🙂 It’s a year old now and is still my favorite.
Time taken – 00:00:30
So that completes the look! You now have rest of the time to be merrily spent sight seeing and chatting 🙂
