Bourjois Liner Pinceau!

Dear Glammys!

Since we are all glammys, I'm quite confident that we all like to look good and glam up for everyday and feel like a superstar..! Be it dressing or makeup, it all adds up to our confidence and makes us look and feel better and presentable on the days when we don't even feel like getting out of beds in the morning.
Nevertheless, for me the most easiest look to pull is with minimalistic products; wash face, moisturize, conceal and highlight if its extremely bad looking day, put on pore minimizer to reduce effects of oils on nosy, put on eyeliner, some kajal if eyes allow to out the pencil on the waterline, plenty of coats of beloved mascara, lipstick as cheek and lip stain and brows if needed. That's it. Now I'm ready to head out to start my day officially. See simple, with basic product being eyeliner. Now that brings me to focus point of this post, which as the title says is eyeliner. I'm always on the lookout for super pigmented eyeliner which stays on all day just as strongly as when it was put on and which is also super easy to apply.
This french type named eyeliner "Bourjois Liner Pinceau Liquid Eyeliner" claims to stay for 16 Hours. Claim big much!! Well its tried and tested. I apply it around 7:30 in the morning and it stays on till I cleanse and wash my face at night around 10:00 pm usually. Thats says alot about staying power, doesn't it?! Let's also keep in mind I have extremely oily eyelids and I use no primer underneath this liner and still it stays put! That's a win-win product for me straight away :)

Now let's talk about the color. It's not typical black. For everyday and office/university etc, I tend to sometimes avoid the harsh black and instead opt for subtle deep browns. The color for this one is "33 Brun Impressionniste". It's a brown with very close resemblance to black yet not as hard as black, and still gives that definition which you crave and can achieve with black particularly. Here's the swatch for you, which looks very much like black but is not.

Talking about the applicator, it's not your typical felt tip pen kinda thing, its actually a fine brush, which may look insanely difficult to apply, but believe me its not. It actually bends with the curves of you eyes and you need to use a very light hand for applying this liner. It wouldn't pick globs of product, and if you clean the sides on the tube, like you do with nail polish it will be more easier for you to handle and use. Perfect!
Its easy to use long lasting, good staying power even though not waterproof but I find it to be sort of water resistant, long lasting, and comes with budget friendly tag of Rs 1140/- and considering the use you'll get out of it, it's worth it. :)
I'm happy with it and I'm quite positive that you'll love it too. It's available at all major drugstores, so give it a go and share your thoughts.
Love, Hadiya
