BOURJOIS MEGA LINER REVIEW
Extra Large Flick
Very Long Lasting (Up to 24hr)
The 3 points above are literally what is written on the eyeliner packaging itself… And to be honest, they haven’t lied to you.
I quite like felt-tip eyeliners but I especially like normal liquid liners with an in-built brush, and I have always sworn by one – Heroine Make Kiss Me Liquid Eyeliner. So, today, I’m not going to compare the 2 I want this purely to be a review of the Bourjois one, but if you ask me, I still swear by Heroine Make.
Ok, let’s get back on track… Why did I buy this product? The truth is, I didn’t… It was an offer which was on at Boots when I bought other make up products, I believe the offer was buy-this-certain-product and get-this-free, the free product being a choice between 2 eyeliners, I don’t remember what the other one was, I did an “ip-dip-do” to choose between the 2.
As I’ve been so used to using a brush to apply liner, be it the in-built liquid liners, or gel liners, so it was a little weird using a felt-tip liner so it took quite a while to get any practice, and when I got better at it, I gave up and switched back to gel liner again. One thing I do like about this liner is that it doesn’t smudge too easily, it is really, really black (01 Dark Black) and it really is quite long lasting, which is the most important thing!
The tip is slanted and it is quite big, it’s literally as if I’m using a Sharpie to line my eyes, so I think the thickness and “bigness” of it put me off it, it made it a little harder to use.
I think if this liner was not so “mega” then it would attract me more, it’s not as if I always fine line my eyes or whatever, but I like to slowly build up a thickness for my eyeliner. It does prove quite hard to get a fine line with this eyeliner.
I guess this liner is not really made for me, but it certainly does work as a long lasting, smudge free liner.
