I've found a Holy Grail eyeliner! It's black and it's liquid but wait till you read ahead, pencil-fans (I like pencils and shadow-liners myself). Bourjois is probably my favourite drugstore brand and I love how they bring out some innovative products, such as the One Second Magic Polish Remover. And their regular products are on par with high-end in terms of quality, such as the Rouge Edition lipsticks and the Duochrome pencil liners.
When I first saw the Erasable Liners, I thought they were nail art pens, the kind you press down, like Barry M. And then, I was told they were eyeliners, so I thought they must be intended to make particularly thick lines. I couldn't have been more wrong. Thankfully I had the sense to pick up two of these.
Packaging of the Bourjois Erasable Liner:I love the magenta colour. This used to be the shape of all Bourjois liquid liners and they had blue, olive green, brown and so on, remember? And then those seemed to just disappear from the market and now I can only find the conical bottles of glitter liners or cylindrical clubbing liners. Of course, the brushes in those things were crap and would split and shed in weeks.
Anyway, back to the Erasable liner. There's a white tip. We're getting there.
Formula and staying power of the Bourjois Erasable liner:I don't have a problem with consistency as long as it looks decent in the end. The liquid comes across as thick and gloopy but I'll take it over runny any day. The surprising thing is how it dries - into an even, thin-layered, pencil-like charcoalish finish. I love it! No gloop, no thickness. It feels light and un-liquidy. How? And it isn't one of those wretched peel-offs either.
How the Bourjois Erasable Liner works:
Does the Bourjois Erasable Liner work with other products?Even the SA claimed this wouldn't work on other eyeliners - BUT IT DOES!
From left to right, I have:
M.A.C. liquid liner,
MUFE Aqua Liner
Bourjois Glitter Liner
MUA liquid liner
Bourjois Erasable - thick line
Bourjois Erasable - thin line
Too Faced Metal Eyed liquid liner
Sephora liquid eyeliner
As you can see, the glitter in Too Faced Metal Eyed and Bourjois Glitter Liner have spread a bit, but the eyeliners, especially the non-glitter ones, have been erased well! EUREKA! Sorry about the caps, but I've just discovered the part about other eyeliners myself and am excited! And no pilling anywhere!
I haven't tried it with pencils yet but presume it won't work.
Oh, and the SA in Doha gave me a gift with purchase - a Bourjois 150th Anniversary notebook. Cute, innit?
