Colorbar Shimmer Bar Baked Eyeshadow/Blusher 002 Coral Hint
I have been an ardent fan of Bobbi Brown shimmer bars, they are in my wish list since like ages. So when Colorbar launched their own shimmer bars and out of which Coral hint looked like a possible dupe of Bobbi brown shimmer bar, I felt ecstatic. I ordered this online even without much checking of swatches and review. When I received the product, believe me guys it was love at first sight. I felt as if it was made just for me. It has the shades which I personally prefer in my eye shadow range.
So here I am with a detailed review on this product, please read on to know if it really kept its promise and made a possible dupe of Bobbi brown shimmer bars.

My Take on Colorbar Shimmer Bar Coral Hint:
Packaging: Colorbar shimmer bar comes encased in a square pan packaging with a transparent cover. No applicator or mirror is provided with it. All the information regarding ingredients, price, quantity, shade and others are mentioned at the bottom of the pan. The pan though looks sturdy, does not help much in avoiding damage to the product. Product is so softly milled that even a slight jerk can completely damage it. It is not at all travel friendly and quite susceptible to damage.
Shadewise: Shimmer bar Coral hint is the supposed dupe of Bobbi brown shimmer bar. However, Colorbar one has more warm colors and it is suitable for our Indian skin tone. There are two variants in this range, I liked Coral hint much more. The other one has some different kinds of pink shades which I feel would clash with my NC 42 skin tone. Coral hint has 5 different shades:
Pearl Highlighter, Bronze brown, Coral gold, Peachy copper, Bronze gold.
Pigmentation: Colorbar shimmer bar is nicely pigmented and gives nice glowy skin with one swipe of the product. As an eye shadow, I had to apply two layers for semi opaque coverage. I am overall impressed with the product.
Texture & Finish: Texture of the product is super soft and creamy. It feels so creamy soft when you touch its surface. I loved its feel on my skin. It blends so easily in couple of seconds. However, due to its soft texture it is very much prone to damage. All the shades have pearlescent finish with minute shimmers in them. It is a versatile product and would be a hit among all makeup lovers.
Longevity: It has decent wear time in our humid Indian weather. It stays on for some 4 hrs + on me. My skin was glowing with a hint coral gold for 5 hrs+. As an eye shadow it showed a decent wear time of 3-4 hours with slight creasing.
