I received this liner as a gift so I wasn't expecting much from it. When I first tried it on, I was amazed ! I don't tend to wear thick liner anyway, so the small thin brush made it really easy to create a thin line with a little flick. However, when I did try to fill in some gaps with the tip, I didn't realise how sharp it was so I ended up pricking my eyelid a bit.
Not really sure about the staying power as I haven't tried it on for a whole day, but from previous reviews on here, it seems it does not budge !
Blugh - No.
I am eyeliner obsessed. I have been on a constant search for the perfect liquid liner. One that goes on smoothly, gives that perfect wing, and STAYS. I'm sad to say that this Bourjois product does none of those things.
The first thing that should be mentioned is the brush. In a word, this brush SUCKS. It is so thin it's like one of those teeny tiny paintbrushes made of a couple of single hairs. This means that you spend forever going over the same spot trying to get a slightly thicker line... then one section is thicker than the other... it's thin in other places. Really frustrating.
The formula is thin. It's so thin that I accidentally tipped the bottle and some sloshed out. This means that combined with the weeny little Borrowers brush, my lashes (which are fairly long) just got covered in product as I attempted to apply it. Then I blinked, as humans tend to do, and it got all under my eye.
Despite all of the above, I persevered and tried to even the wobbly lumpy line as much as I could, then wore it throughout the day. Or at least... a few hours of it until I found around my eyes (under, over, to the sides) had smudged. I'll be the first to admit my eyelids are an oil slick at times, but this is just ridiculous.
TL;DR... I looked in the mirror at midday and was horrified at the dry-looking wobbly line. Despite the tiny brush I have banged on about so much, I was STILL not able to get close enough to my last line (probably due to the formula).
Wouldn't buy again!
This is my favourite eyeliner, repurchased this around 6 times and I still love it! Lasts forever on my eyes especially love it when I'm wearing false lashes and the colour is intense black very dramatic.
Color: Like it said, vibrant, almost a dupe for MUFE aqua liner in 5 - Diamond Turquoise Blue
Lasting power: forever, just buy it
Brush: thin, easy to use
Price: 1/3 high end product
this is such an amazing liquid liner! it dries super quickly and lasts forever! i am not sure about the price though, my liner was a gift
could somebody please tell me if the purple and blue liners are nice
This eyeliner has became my all time favorite. I did have doubt before purchasing it since I do have very oily eyelids. Every single eyeliner (from high end to drugstore) I have never used would crease on my eye during day, even I always use an eye primer.
I still bought this eyeliner because recommended by the beauty counselor at the Bourjois store. I bought the two in Absolute Black and Violet Laser (purple) colours.
` They are so good in quality with no shimmer in it.
` They never crease on my eyelids even after 12 hours' wear. (even without primer or setting with eyeshadow)
` The brush head is so fine. You could easily create a cat eye look with it.
` Only comes in very limited colours (6 colours) but all of them are so pretty.
` The Violet Laser one doesn't show up very well on my eyes. Maybe it is because of my medium skin tone. Have to draw over the eyeliner for a few time so as to make it more visible.
` A bit pricey for drugstore make up but I think it is so worth it. I bought it for 108HKD each (Around 14USD).
Anyway, I ended up buying another one in Electro Blue as well. I love the colour. It showed up pretty good on eyes as well.
Electro Blue - SUCH a gorgeous color - I've never seen such a bright, gorgeous electric blue. But as another reviewer said, it left a very noticeable blue stain even after industrial strength remover. Not good :(
One of the best liquid liners I've tried. Lovely thin brush makes it easy to apply. Much better than some of the high end liquid liners for a 1/3 of the price!
I bought the color absolute black and I like how it shines. It is a really intense black to and it stays on okay. However I do not like the brush and the texture of the product. The texture is really wet and therefore hard to apply evenly. The brush is also hard to control for me. I like MAC liquid last liner more, because the texture of the product is not as watery and I can draw beautiful lines easily. I find I can only really easily make simple lines on my upper lashes. I need to forget about the winged retro anything when I am using this liner. I als usually use a separate brush becuase it is so hard to control. However I like it better than felt tip applicators.
Let me start of by saying I'm usually MAC obsessed, most of my make-up is MAC, and except mascara and (now) liquid eyeliner, I use MAC everything. I bought the MAC Liquid Eye Liner (in the little pot) and found the brush too thick. It made applying it very hard because my eyelashes got in the way and I found it didn't last very long at ALL (would start 'cracking'). I then tried MAC Superslick Liquid Eye Liner. IMO this is the worst eyeliner from MAC. It dries up ridiculously quickly and there's never much of the actual product on the brush so you have to keep dipping it in. Another thing, I bought it in 'On The Hunt', described as 'true black' and I would NOT say it was true black at all. It's definitely leaning towards a dark grey. One plus is that it is OK in terms of long lasting, it doesn't crack or smudge but the negatives definitely outweigh this one plus.
Now, onto Bourjois Clubbing Liner. I bought this after I decided to start trying out drugstore liners in my quest to find the perfect one. I LOVE the thin brush. It makes applying it SUPER easy and I'd definitely recommend for eyeliner beginners or just users of eyeliner in general who are perhaps not complete experts at applying it. With this, you can apply it in one sweep. No dotting and joining, a sweep is super easy and application takes about 15 seconds. Eyelashes don't get in the way, and although I've read reviews saying the brush is too 'thin' I don't think this AT ALL. It is absolutely perfect. If you want a really thick line you can very easily create one by simply sweeping across twice - think!! The liner is super long lasting and lasts until I go to bed. It doesn't smudge AT ALL, and I love being able to go out and not whip my mirror out every 1-2 hours to double check my eyeliner is OK. If you apply it thick in the corner of the eye it may start 'cracking', but this is just because of blinking and does happen with most if not all liquid eyeliners.
I'd never looked at Bourjois being a favourite brand of mine, but it has definitely gone up in my estimations and I value it as much as I do MAC. I do hope people give this beauty a chance because it is a diamond in my collection. I hope this helps someone. :-)
