Eyes Wide Open ~ Chambor Sparkling eye liner in Soft Star Review

Chambor Sparkling Eye Liner in Soft Star

Sorry for the lack of post girls! I am juggling 4 projects at present at work. I love the word juggling btw. It conjures up such a fun image. When I think I am juggling projects, in my head I picture 3 projects suspended mid air in a semi circle and I am at the bottom of the circle working furiously on one project. I am rambling! Delirious with the few hours of sleep I am getting.

Chambor Soft Star

The many hours at work and the few hours of sleeping is giving me terrible dark circles. Thank God I have the Chambor Sparkling eye liner. This is a shimmery champagne color eye pencil with golden shimmer and a few golden glitter particles. This is my go to pencil when I want to divert attention away from my dark circles and make my eyes look wide awake. A dash of this in the inner corner of my eyes adds a bit of glamour to my eye look.

This eye pencil has shimmer as well as glitter. What I mean by glitter is visible flecks of golden tiny things. Because of this , its not exactly suited for work.

Swatch of Chambor Eye Liner in Soft Star

Price? Approximately Rs 300

The Good?

The color really complements my dusky skin tone. But I believe this will look lovely on fairer girls as well. Its not as stark as white and its not a garish yellow gold. Its more like a champagne gold or a nude gold if that makes any sense!

I love how it brightens up my eyes with just a tini bit in my inner corners.

I quite like the formula of this pencil. Its not creamy at all – in fact I would say it’s a bit hard and dry. But I think that’s what makes it just a good inner corner highlight color. I doubt a creamy eye pencil would last at the inner tear ducts for more than a coupla minutes.

Since I only need a wee bit, one pencil will last for ever.

The Not So Good?

I really wish this liner didn’t have the flecks of golden glitter. Someone should make the exact same color without the glitter bits. Its more suitable for a night out rather than for office.

Makeup-Mantra rating? 9/10

I really love this eye pencil. If I run out I will probably re purchase if I cant find a similar color in a less shimmery version. Chambor makes terrific eye pencils. I LOVE!! their eye tattoo pencils. I have raved about one of them here. Their eye contour kohl pencils are the only ones which are not good ( the ones that come with the transparent cap).

Do swatch this one at the Chambor counter  and let me know what you think!

  9. Eye makeup can get a little tricky but that adds life to our eyes. It looks different which I have not tried till now. Would like to try it once by purchasing from Nykaa using Nykaa coupons. Every product I use will always be from Nykaa as it is the portal that I have been using from a long time.
