“Bourjois Paris” as a brand is well known worldwide for its most popular and raved product- Bourjois healthy Mix/Serum foundation. Last month I picked few more products including 2 new eyeliners. I have different brown shade but those are quite light in colour -more of a chocolate brown with golden shimmers in it, not appropriate for daily use. Therefore a deep dark matte brown eyeliner pencil is what I was looking for. I love how soft and pigmented these eyeliner pencils are. Let’s see what company has to say…

Bourjois Paris Kohl and Contour 16 hours Eye Pencil comes with simple packaging like any other drugstore brands. It is encased in wooden pencil therefore sharpener is a must. I find it pretty hygienic because while sharpening the tip the upper layer where the bacteria or fungus tends to gets accumulated wears off.
The shade is exactly the same as the colour of the body. The formula as I had already mentioned above impressed me a lot. I have used many eyeliner pencils but the one comes with wood are either dry or stiff which hurts my lash line while application. This one doesn’t! It has smooth and soft formula, so soft that while swatching the tip broke. It glides smoothly on lids as well as on waterline/lashline. These liners are said to be 16 hours long wearing but that’s just a myth. However, on waterline it does stay for 6-7 hours without smudging or bleeding – Now that’s impressive! You can use this as a base, or can be applied as eyeliner on lids, apply on waterline for those natural looking eyes or smudge it for that smokey look. The intense colour when applied on lid doesn’t move or budge at all unless you want to remove it. I would say the lasting power on lid is much higher than on water line or lash line. I use this on my upper lash line, lower lash line or as a base and sometimes apply and smudge. I also like the fact that the tip doesn’t get harder if you keep it unused for longer time. I would like to check other shades as well, 320 INR with such a good quality- MUST check you guys.
