Bourjois : Liner Feutre Felt Tip Eyeliner Review

Bourjois Felt Tip Eyeliner

Bourjois, I’m back for more

I got this because I wanted the free birthday gift, which is a set of travel brushes. It is from my favorite online shopping place. Let’s be honest, eyeliners are hard to buy, there are so many but only a fraction actually works well, and within that only a few that actually lasts.

Bourjois Liner Pinceau Liquid Eyeliner still reigns supreme, by a lot. The liquid eyeliner lasts a good eight hours when I last had it. Naturally, I assumed that the staying power would be comparable for the felt tip one. My laziness also was a major factor in me picking this one over the fine brushed liquid, because felt tip is just easier to use.

The tip is not rock hard, but firm enough for amateurs to get a good line. It is easy to use, but only if you know what you are doing. The tip does not give you a smooth line if you press too hard or just simply uncoordinated. The trick is to do dash lines, and gently close them up.

It will take some practice, trust me you will get beautiful line soon enough with this pen.

When I drew my line, I was impressed. The color is dark and bold for a black, and seems flattering on me.

It does not last!
I could forgive if this could last me long enough so I do not have to reapply while I am at work, say ten hours. I have had brands that easily last until I take it off at night. You can see that the line has all but faded around the corners, and this is a mere three hours later.

It boasts long lasting, but it isn’t. Very disappointed in the “long lasting” claim on the eyeliner. For the same price, I would go back to the liquid liner. Now I will be using that as a calligraphy pen … hmm that ain’t a bad idea.

  • The cat eye looks amazing on you Ailyn but gosh that’s awfully faded by the end of the day. I tend to use a sharpened pencil as I find it gives a better smokey eye effect for me. I’ve always been rubbish at applying liquid eyeliner and this type of pen would have been perfect for me if it had that staying power. It looks fabulous on you though!

    • haha the first stage looked nice enough ^_^ thanks for the compliment, that’s my first draw in 1 year =(

  • Too bad it didn’t last. You did an amazing cat eye!

    • really? so happy you said so I have been out of practice
