Eyeliner romance with Bourjois Liner Feutre

I have a thing about eyeliners or maybe it's more of a love/hate relationship. Out of all the amazing makeup looks you can create I absolutely adore a chic feline flick and wearing eyeliner is an easy way to subtly introduce some color without making too bold a statement. As much as I love eyeliners I am unfortunately not very good at applying them and even though I take my time and carefully plan the look, I rarely seem to get that perfect flick that others seem to master perfectly - and when I do manage to get it looking decent it's more out of luck than anything else. For that reason I prefer to use felt tip liners with as fine a tip as possible, so that I have as much control as possible of the amount of product that goes on, and also so that I can at least try and be precise with the shaping of the line. Another stumbling block in my relationship with eyeliners is that quite often I'll apply the eyeliner in the morning, think it's dried and set well and I'll get on with my day only to discover horrific black grey smudges in the crease of the eyelid throughout the day... does this sound familiar? By now I've tried quite a lot of eyeliners in the pursuit of feline flick happiness, and although my relationship with many of them has started out rosy and full of promise, they all usually turn sour at some point. That is at least up until now...

A few weeks ago I quite unexpectedly came across a new eyeliner - I wasn't really looking for something new since I was still recovering from my latest disappointment, but when I saw the Bourjois Liner Feutre (£6.99) it was lust at first sight. It's a felt tip liner in a very slim, sleek and handy format that will easily fit into even the smallest of clutch bags and it comes in 4 different colors; Black, Ultra Black, Noir Violine and Noir Moka. After some swatching I just couldn't say no to the beautiful and silky aubergine color of 12 Noir Violine and the velvety tawny copper shade of 14 Noir Moka.
The felt tip is very fine and so soft that you hardly need to apply any pressure at all to get a lovely even line in a single stroke, and for me to accomplish that is saying something. The eyeliner dries very quickly into a glossy and polished look with phenomenal pigmentation, but even better is the wear. It stays solidly as a rock in place exactly where you've applied it (so you had better get it right...) all day long without any smudging or creasing, and although it doesn't claim to be water resistant (it's probably too shy to brag about all its excellent qualities) you could probably even go swimming with it without it showing, and you'll need a gentle but effective eye makeup remover to take it off. Bourjois Liner Feutre and I just click, but then again what's not to like - the shades all have a gorgeous silky glossiness, it's so easy to apply with beautiful definition and it's lovely to wear. I know it's still early days for this budding romance, but I think I might finally have found true eyeliner love!

  2. Wow these sound amazing. It can be so difficult to find a great felt tip liner because they dry out fast or they are not pigmented enough. I think I have to try one of these.

    1. With liquid eyeliners I always seem to get far too much product and it's just a mess to be honest LOL Xx

  4. They look incredible. I love using lighter colours other than black as they are so much softer. I will definitely be having a look at these. Thanks for the heads up! X

  10. I wasn't convinced as I'm a bit of a skeptic but when you mentioned the staying power I was definitely intrigued! I think I'll be having a look at these tomorrow in Boots, particularly the brown one! It's such a pity how great products like these can be so thoroughly underrated!

  13. I have the black liner and i nearly forget sometimes how gentle you need to be with it as my other liner was starting to run out. I love this eyeliner. Need these two shades now!
