      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Easy to apply liner which brings out your eyes.

      I decided to try Bourjois Liner Feutre as I'm not very adept at applying makeup but wanted the darker, cleaner eye-liner look that liquid eyeliner gives you. Felt tip style eye liner seemed the way to go and I've always liked the Bourjois brand.

      Application:

      Liner Feutre is simple to apply. You pull off the cap to reveal the felt tip pen style liner. You can then lightly glide the liner pen under the eye to get a clean line. I found that the tip doesn't round off quickly so the liner stays sharp and clean for a long time. I find make up difficult to apply as I don't have a steady hand but this product makes the eye liner application process very easy.

      Look of the product:

      Liner feutre gives me exactly the look I've been wanting. It's a dark black which has a striking effect whilst still looking more natural that some liquid eye liners. The product allows for a clean line rather than the more "smudgy" look you can get with pencil liners.

      Durability:

      I have been really impressed with how durable this product is. If I put the liner on in the mornings, I only reapply in the evenings if I'm going out. Otherwise, the product lasts long enough to make it through the day. It isn't however too difficult to clean off so it gives the best of both worlds!

      I would be careful to check when buying Liner Feutre that the liner you pick up has not previously been opened. I've bought one before that had obviously dried out a little which made the product substandard.

      The only disadvantage is that I often get black gloops in the corner of my eyes using this liner that I've never have with any other.

      Overall, the price of £6.99 is excellent considering the durability and ease of use of the Liner Feutre.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Not for me

      Although I absolutely love my regular pen eyeliner from Collection 2000, it wasn't available recently so I had to pick something else. I thought I would splash out a bit and see what a more expensive brand was like in comparison. I bought the Bourjois Liner Feutre in black from Boots. The eyeliner cost £6.99 at the time of purchase. Bourjois claimed that this was 'a soft felt-tip eyeliner for ultra easy application and long lasting effect.'

      In regards to packaging, there isn't any really. The eyeliner doesn't come in a box or a packet but instead just sits there on the shelf. The outer casing to the pen in black and it has a slight bowed effect to it, with it being slimmer in the middle. The name of the product is printed on the casing in quite large white lettering as well as there being the Bourjois logo there as well. The only liner I have ever seen to come in a box was from MUA so I wasn't surprised at the lack of packaging with this one.

      Using the pen itself is like any other pen liner. After popping off the lid, you will find quite a large sized pen nib. However, the end of the nib thins out quite a bit which would make it possible to create both thick and thin lines, depending on the look you were going for. On first impressions, the nib looked extremely black and I was looking forward to using something quite a bit more expensive than my usual brand of eyeliner.

      When it came to using the liner though, I cannot express just how disappointed I was. I began to draw on my eyeliner as I normally would but quickly realised that something was wrong. Barely any colour was coming off the nib and instead of it being really dark, it was a washed out black kind of colour. I purposely picked a pen from the back of the stack, as I always do with make-up but now I am unsure whether or not this had been used as a tester or this is just what the liner is like.

      After several attempts to get a thick, dark line on my eye lid, I gave up. I had to remove what liner I did manage to get on my eyelid as there was no way I could make it look good or finished. Also, I didn't want to have to attempt the other eye as well as the first looked bad enough. When paying £6.99 for a product, especially a pen eyeliner, this should not be happening. Even if this had been used as a tester, it must have been used a hell of a lot for it to get in this state. I'm used to having a pen liner with a lovely flow of the liquid and one which I have had for at least 6 months (with daily use) before it ever getting anywhere near to being in this state.

      Due to my terrible first experience with Bourjois Liner Feutre, I will never be buying this product again, nor can I recommend it.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A liquid eye liner product that is easier to use than many alternatives!

        When doing my make-up for a night out or special occasion, I often go for the dark, dramatic look around my eyes, and this is achieved much more easily if I use a liquid eye liner product. Whilst tricky to use at first, and requiring a lot of patience as well as a steady hand, the end result can be quite remarkable, and I definitely find that a liquid eye liner gives a much less subtle look than if a pencil liner had been used instead.

        I had tried out a few liquid liner products with varying results, but had found two major problems when using such a product. Firstly, the liner was nearly always extremely difficult to apply and I ended up needing several attempts at each eye before a reasonable end result was achieved.

        Secondly, I found that after a couple of hours, the liquid eye liner would begin to smudge around the eye area, and this problem was usually worse on the bottom of the eye or near the corners of the eye. Both of these problems led to me being very wary of using a liquid eyeliner product, and I abandoned all hope of ever having thick black heavily-lined eyes.

        That was until I discovered a make up 'setting' spray product from the Urban Decay brand, which allowed me to protect the make-up on my face and helped to prevent smudging, blotting or running of any eye make-up that had been applied. I have reviewed this product on Dooyoo separately, and more detail about the Urban Decay product can be found in that review.

        As I grew to have confidence in my make-up being protected from smudging and running, I began to consider trying out liquid eyeliner products again, as I thought the setting spray would help to alleviate at least one of the original problems I had been facing.

        With this in mind, I set about trying to find a new liquid eyeliner product to try out and eventually decided to buy the 'Bourjois Liner Feutre', which I bought around six months ago from a local store of Boots. I paid around £6 for the product, which was available in two different shades at the time. The shade that I bought was Black.

        The packaging for the Bourjois Liner Feutre is pretty basic, it has to be said. There is nothing too eye-catching about the product that would make it stand out to me as a consumer, when I am perusing make-up and cosmetics in the relevant aisles in my local drugstores. That said, there is something quite classy-looking about the plain black coloured liner and it's shape, which is thicker at both ends than it is in the middle, giving it a slightly angular look.

        The tip or 'nib' of the Bourjois Liner is quite big in comparison to other liquid eyeliner products I have used before, and I found that this took a bit of getting used to when applying the liner to my eyes. I have to admit that I was a bit wary of using such a large tipped liner, as I thought it would be quite cumbersome to use and make a delicate-looking line difficult to achieve. I am happy to report that this is not the case at all, and I actually find the product a lot easier to use than alternatives I have tried out in the past. This is probably because the design of the tip of the Bourjois Liner Feutre is shaped in such a way that there is a lovely thin shape to the end of the tip itself which allows for a delicate, thin line to be drawn, but at the same time the liner can also help create a thicker, blacker line for a more dramatic effect, if desired.

        As with all liquid eye liner products I have tried before, the Bourjois Liner Feutre has taken a bit of time to get used to, and it most certainly requires a steady hand during the application process or I find that the result is messy and I need to start over. With a little time and practice though, I am getting much better and I feel that this is mainly down to the easy-to-apply tip that the Bourjois liner has.

        I feel that the tip of the Bourjois Liner Feutre is similar to that of a felt tip pen, and in actual fact the product has the words 'Felt - Tip/Eyeliner on the side, which I had not noticed were there until a few weeks ago! The product certainly feels like a felt tip when it is being used, and I find that the liquid flows easily from the nib of the liner in much the same way as ink would from a felt tip pen. I also find it is quite easy to 'build up' the colour to make a thicker line thanks to the liner's steady flow of liquid. I have not had to press down too hard or use any sort of 'scrubbing' motion when using this liner, and both of these points have been off-putting side-effects of products I have tried out in the past.

        I have had no ill effects from using the Bourjois eyeliner such as irritation around the eye area, and I have found it easy to remove using normal eye make-up remover or moist facial wipes.
        Overall, I would highly recommend this eyeliner product and even though it is slightly more expensive than alternative products that are available on the market, I do feel it is worth paying a bit extra for as the results are long-lasting and the product itself is much easier to use in my opinion.

        There is a range of make-up and cosmetics from the Bourjois Paris range, which can be found in larger branches of Boots nationwide. The normal retail price for the Bourjois Liner Feutre I am reviewing here is around £6. It can also be purchased online at www.boots.com.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          If you like the 'cat-eye' look then I definitely recommend this product!

          I said to expect a few more reviews on eyeliners from me, and here is another one :)

          I have always been put off by liquid eyeliners. I think because they will need a very steady hand when applying along the eyeline, which I don't have when it comes to applying eyeliner, and the fact that one little mistake could be very messy, whereas with an eye pencil I can simply rub it off or use a dab of eye make-up remover on a cotton bud if I make a mistake.

          I know from my friends' experiences of using liquid eyeliner that it creates a much darker effect on your eyes, but I really couldn't use liquid so have always tried different eye pencils until I found a one which created the dark look I like.

          So when I saw this 'felt-tip' eyeliner on the Bourjois stand in Boots, at first I thought it would be just as tricky as a normal liquid eyeliner, until I took the top off. The tip of the liner was very sharp and thin at the end so it looked liked it would be very easy to apply. I tested the product on my hand and managed to draw a very neat straight line, it was noticably very dark straight away. I drew a line next to this one with an eye pencil to compare and the result is what made me buy the 'Bourjois Liner Feutre' then.

          I didn't try the eyeliner out until my next night out, as I do like my eyes to be dark but not for everyday wear and to work etc. It was very easy to apply, only one coat was needed and it dried very quickly, which I didn't think it would.

          I took my eyeliner out with me on the night as I usually do for a quick top-up (as long as it isn't one of my expensive ones!) but I actually didn't need it or use it once. The liner stayed dark on my eyes all night and didn't smudge a bit.

          This is one of the only eyeliners I have came across that lasts for several hours without a top-up. I am very pleased with this and it is now a staple in my make-up bag! Although I do only use it for a night out or if I am going somewhere a bit dressed up, as it does go on very dark and so if you like a more subtle look during the day then I would avoid using this then.

          I paid £4.99 for this from Boots when it was at its indroductory price, but it is now priced at £5.99 which I still think is very reasonable for this excellent product. It also currently in the 3 for 3 promotion at Boots. It is only available in the colour black.

          I cannot say if this product lasts long or not, or if the felt-tip dries out quickly, as I have not had it for that long, so this is really just a review on how good the eyeliner is on the eye, but so far I cannot fault this product.

            Disadvantages

            best of both worlds!

            Liquid eyeliner is a must have in anyone's makeup kit. It can be used to give an eyeshadow look more drama or can even be be used on bare skin for that "pin up girl" look. It offers more drama and precision that pencil eyeliner and is also far richer and blacker. The problem many people have with liquid eyeliner, however, is that it is harder to control and needs a lot of practice to get right. Felt tip liners are a great alternative as it is the best of both worlds- dramatic looks but with added control. The makers of felt tip liner call it "idiot proof" but is it really that easy?

            There are lots of felt tip liners on the market- ranging from super-discount brand to top end desisnger. I've tried many and I must say Bourjois Liner Feutre is my stand out favourite so far. Cheaper brands are either too wet that the black is not intesnse enough, or too dry that colour does not show on the eye. Bourjois is the cheapest brand where the liner has the perfect consistency. I can even use this liner over eye shadow and it still looks ultra-black. The difference between Liner Feautre and considerably more expensive felt tip liners is negligable and therefore not worth the extra money.

            I find that felt tip liners are far easier to use that traditional liquid liners. I often struggle getting the perfect line, but with Liner Feutre, I can create all manner of lines, flicks and ticks.

            I think liners are personal preference, I can see why some people may not like felt tip liners. But for me, they are best liners out there and I encourage everyone to try them.

            An easy to apply liquid eyeliner!

            I am a big fan of eyeliner anf black eyeliner in particular as become a part of my daily routine. I prefer liquid eyeliner as I believe this gives a much more dramatic, blackest black line and allows for more precision.

            However when I saw this felt tip looking / style eyeliner I figure I just had to try it! The liner itself looks like it might be a permanent marker pen, however is a lot slimmer to hold than this.
            I purchased mine in Boots for £5.99, though it can also be bought in Superdrug and as yet I haven't seen it anywhere else.

            When you open the lid of the eyeliner you will see the nib of the eyeliner. This does look very similar to that of a felt pen and gets narrower towards the end, as would any decent filt tip. The colour of the eyliner definitley looks black and the end also looks moist so that it doesn't look like you'll have any problems with having to put it on or having to layer it up.

            To use the eyeliner is very smooth and sleek, it comes out a very dramatic looking black colour, as I would have expected. The eyeliner was very moist, so even when I have positioned ip upside down I did not have to wait for the liquid to reach the end.
            I also found this felt tip design to be very eay to use, when positioned to the side I found it easy to use for a thicker, more dramatic look and if I just used the very nib of the eyeliner this worked well for that very subtly, daytime look.

            The colour lasted all day and did not fade, which I was very happy with and fouynd no reason to reapply.

            The pen shape I found fitted very easy into my hand and found it was easier and more comfortable to use than an normal liquid eyeliner brush.

            I have had a few of these pens now and the first one lasted me for about 3 months, which I was very pleased with also!

            This is an item I would definitley reccomend, especially if you find applying liquid eyeliner a nuiscance!

              A Fabulous dramatic eyeliner

              Since i was a child i have always loved the makeup of the movie stars of the 40s and 50s with there fabulous black eyeliner and since i was old enough to wear makeup black eyeliner has been the one constant product in my collection.

              Black eyeliner has almost always been in fashion from the sophisticated 40s flick to the 60s heavy black lidded look with the exaggerated flick.

              I have used many different brands and everything from liquid to pencil to cream and this review is of the last one i have tried.

              Bourjois -

              The Bourjois Paris brand was created in 1863 and started with the creation of the first ever baked dry blusher and came in the famous little round pot, it was actually created to be used as stage make up and then found its way onto the dressing tables of most ladies in France

              The product -

              Bourjois liner feutre is an eyeliner in the style and design of a very fine felt tip, it comes in a classic Bourjois style and is black with sliver writing in french and english although it is made in Japan!, it contains 6ml of product.

              It is available in Black and Brown, although the colours are written in French so its Noir for Black and Brun for Brown.

              How to apply -

              The best way to apply is to rest your hand on a table with a mirror in front of you and hold the liner as you would a pen or pencil, with your other hand gently pull the lid up as this makes it easier to get a straight line, then start from the inner corner of your eye and work towards the other corner.

              Is it easy to use -

              I have to say that as its a felt tip there is no room for mistakes with this one, and i found that it could drag my skin as i was trying to apply it and it was quite difficult to get a perfect line.

              I would also say be very careful if you are using the liner on your bottom lashes as i managed to get a little of the product in my eye and as its a wet felt tip it made me eye weep and sting for a good 30 minutes!.

              The results -

              Once i had got used to using the liner the results were good, the colour i choose was black and it was a very deep black that had a little shine to it and it lasted all day with only a little touch up in the evening.

              Cost and availability -

              Bourjois is stocked in most Boots stores , other chemists, department stores and some supermarkets.

              My cost approx £5.80 from Boots and if you shop at boots often and you get the vouchers that they often give you after spending so much money, Bourjois is quite often on these and may give you anything from £3 - £5 off.

              My conclusion -

              I think that the product is very long lasting and the colour is very deep and vivid, although if you are not really confident at applying felt tip style liner i would not start with this one.

              Tips for applying any eyeliner -

              Always apply your eyeliner after the rest of your eye make up, it is often said that it should be applied before mascara however i find that its easier to get a perfect line after your mascara is applied and left to dry.

              Gently lift the eyelid but never pull as the skin in this area is very delicate so you only need to gently lift with your index finger.

              Open you mouth slightly when you apply eyeliner as is relaxes your eye muscles and makes application easier.

              A good way to ensure an even line is to apply little strokes to the inner corner, middle and end and then join them up.

              If you want more of a smokey effect go over the line with a dark eyeshadow. this will soften the line and also help the eyeliner stay in place.

              To create a wide eyed look, start from the middle of the lid and work outwards extending slightly past the outer corner of your eye.

              To create a feline flick look start from the middle and work the eyeliner outwards and up towards the corner while also extending slightly passed the outer corner.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                The best eyeliner I've ever used.

                I've been a massive fan of Bourjois make-up products for many years now, so when I discovered this product several years ago, I couldn't resist.

                Us ladies (and some men) will appreciate how difficult it is to apply liquid eyeliner. Having tried, and failed, many a time, I gave up a long time ago. I found I magically developed a twitch everytime it came to applying it, and as such, the results weren't very impressive. So here is a product that gives the same strking result as that of a liquid eyeliner, with the ease of application of a pencil. It's exactly like using a felt-tip pen.


                Histoire de Bourjois

                Bourjois is an established brand of cosmetics, created by Alexander Bourjois in 1863 when he developed a new, lighter, more comfortable type of blusher for Parisien actresses to wear on stage.
                An innovative brand from the very beginning, Bourjois created the first two-wand mascara, Coup de Théâtre and appear to be the first in the field to create this felt-tip eye liner.


                The Product

                This felt-tip liner, or Liner feutre, to give it its correct name, is instantly recognisable as a Bourjois product. Simple but curvaceously seductive packaging, the tell-tale logo and the Franco-English instructions, it's small enough to fit into almost any handbag. The lid comes off easily, although you can't attach it to the end, so be careful when applying, you do not want to accidently lose it! Being a liquid liner, it's important to ensure that it is firmly closed when not in use, to avoid the tip drying out.
                Ease of Use

                As liquid eye-liners go, this is sublimely simple to use. The tip is incredibly thin, to allow for very precise application. I've only come across one other product like this on the market, and having tried it, I can say that Bourjois' Liner feutre gives a much better result. The tip is slightly shorter, which means that it stays rigid and therefore more like the tip of a pencil. The other product had a tip which was slightly longer and therefore would move more, making it more like a thin paintbrush.


                Result

                For me, the result is outstanding. It gives a striking, black line and is perfect for applying flicks. Being a big fan of a small cat eye, I find this product gives me the best flick. Of course, a steady hand and an eagle eye are still required to avoid going over the top and looking like Amy Winehouse (not that there's anything wrong with that, but it's not necessarily the look I'm always going for) but I cannot fault the product. It is just as each as a pencil to use, but gives a much bolder result. I must say that I've never tried to achieve any kind of smokey effect with this product, nor would I want to - the result is crisp and that's what I'm looking for with this eye-liner.
                Does it last?

                The thing that really amazes me about this eye-liner, is that it really does last. One application has lasted me through an entire party on many occasion, and on the odd occasion when I have worn it during the day, its staying power has been commendable.


                It doesn't irraitate my eyes at all, on the contrary, I often forget it's there. On the odd annoying occasion that I've rubbed my eyes when wearing this eye-liner, of course, I have rubbed some of it off. But, surprisingly, not all of it, and it doesn't smudge.

                On the downside, it isn't waterproof. I wear this on my upper lids and not my lower lids, so I don't know the full extent of damage when exposed to tears/rain/other liquids. However, I can say that it does fair better than other liquid liners I've used, most notably the only other liner pen that I've tried.


                The problem comes when trying to take this product off. I'm afraid it'll take considerably more effort than a simple sweep of a face wipe to get this eye-liner off. It's here that its staying power becomes a bit of a problem, it's rather stubborn, I'm afraid to say. But it is worth persevering as this eye-liner is by far the best I've ever used.

                In terms of how long you'll be able to keep this liner in your make-up bag, well with liquid eye-liners, it's recommended that you should keep them for no longer than 6 months, and probably somewhere closer to 3 months. I actually own two Liner feutres at the moment, for fear that the older of the two will run out any day now. I've owned the older Liner feutre for about 4 months now, and will probably through it away within the next month. Although I can see a HUGE difference between the old one and the newer one, the old one does still work well. The tip is looking a little worse for wear, it's starting to kind of snag a bit, and of course, the liner no longer as striking black as it once did. However, I've found that adding a teeny, tiny bit of water helps it last a bit longer. Once again, comparing it to the only other similar product that I've tried (I hate to name drop but just for point of reference, it's a Maybelline product), Bourjois wins hands down. Yes, the black does fade after a couple of months of intensive use, but my little water trick does keep performing well.


                Price and Availabilty

                It's fairly easy to get hold of, I've seen it in all major shops which stock Bourjois products will sell Liner feutre.
                It's only available in Noir - Black, and comes with a price tag of £5.86.


                Overall Opinion

                I genuinely believe that this product is worth every penny. It's one item of make-up I always make sure I've got with me, and it is without a doubt the best eye-liner I've ever used. If you're looking for the crisp, black effect of a liquid liner but you can't apply it, then this is the ideal product. 11 out of 10.

                  Disadvantages

                  Maybe it's just me...

                  I've always wanted to achieve the smoky eye look, and a good eyeliner is key to that. Liquid liner is supposed to be the best to use to enhance the appearance of your eyes because it gives a more dramatic and long lasting appearance. I've tried many eyeliners and anything other than a basic kohl one always looks a bit silly on me. I find the liquid eyeliners with the really fine points really fiddly to use so when I saw rave reviews about this eyeliner I was instantly interested, and so treated myself to it hoping that this would be the fab liquid eyeliner I'd be looking for. I paid around £7 for it in Boots but it might be a bit cheaper online.

                  The Liner Feutre is a liquid eyeliner that instead of coming in a little pot, is in the form of a pen. On appearances it does look very much like a felt tip pen. It's long and slim with a cap that pulls off to reveal the nib of the pen, just like a normal pen. The nib forms a quite narrow tip for easier use. The pen tells us that it's a felt-tip pen that provides long lasting results, and this in written in both English and French which is typical of the Bourjois brand.

                  So I gave it a go, held it in my hand like a pen and tried to draw as fine a line as I could along my eyelid against my lash line. Not as easy as I thought. The nib was nice and soft as advertised, and it was less fiddly than regular liquid liners but I still struggled to keep the pen in a straight line and the nib wasn't as narrow as it seemed. I've only got small eyelids so there isn't really much room for error and even keeping as close to my lash line as I could, the eyeliner covered practically all my lid. Not a good look. Other people may not have that problem but my rubbish eyelids were barely even visible by the time I'd finished. I think the fact I am quite fair also meant that the black was far too dramatic and dark for my skin tone.

                  As silly as I looked with what looked like big black circles round my eyes, I decided to leave it on just to see how long it would last (only because I wasn't leaving the house!). It was actually really long lasting, I rubbed my eyes and it stayed put. It didn't rub away and make me look like a panda, but this also meant I struggled to get it to come off, even using my Clinique eye makeup remover that I usually swear by. Like most liquid eyeliners it isn't suitable for blending but I suppose it all depends what you are using it for.

                  Due to the design of the liner I do think that it could dry up quite quickly, especially if the lid is not put on correctly.

                  So to sum up, it's a good long lasting eyeliner which gives a dramatic effect if you haven't got small eyelids and a wobbly hand!

                  Advantages -
                  Might be suitable for steady hands and bigger eyelids
                  Easy to hold
                  Soft nib
                  Long lasting
                  Popular with other people

                  Disadvantages -
                  Nib not narrow enough for my eyes
                  Hard to remove when you've made a mess!
                  Made me look silly

                    This eyeliner is really easy to use but looks great on!

                    Eyeliner is one of those things that you're either good at applying, or you're not. Now, I'm ok with the waterline underneath my eye, I can manage that. However, until I discovered this, eyeliner on my top lid was an out-of-bounds area unless I wanted to look like I'd scribbled all over my eyelid. I'd tried liquid and it would be too wet and end up smuding, the pencil was too difficult to apply to my lid, so I was stuck. The beauty pages in magazines would torture me, as would girls I saw on the street as I saw that they could apply their eyeliner perfectly, so why couldn't I? So I went on the hunt for an eyeliner that would be easy to use and naturally I deviated towards one of my favourite high street make-up brands, Bourjois. Luckily, they had exactly what I was looking for, a felt tip style eyeliner.

                    I bought mine in Boots and it cost around £5.80 (I've just checked their website and the current price is £5.86). Compared to a normal pencil eyeliner, this is quite expensive, however it's on a par with other liquid eyeliners which I find quite difficult to use.

                    Liner Feutre comes in a long and thin black bottle with white writing and a cap lid, it basically looks like a thin felt tip pen. I think it's only available in black and brown, I've never seen it in other colours and my personal favourite is black. When you take the lid off, you're faced with a thin but soft felt tip pen looking nib and when you start using it, you realise that this creates a strong line. Because of the shape of the tip, you can create both thick lines and thin lines, which means it's ideal for everyday use as well as when you're going out and want a more dramatic look. It's really easy to apply, even for somebody that's incompetent like me and you can draw a line swiftly and easily without too many errors. Because it's like a felt tip, the line dries almost instantly which means that if you blink or accidentally touch it, then you're not going to smudge it and have to start all over again. Therefore, your morning make-up routine becomes a lot simpler and quicker!

                    A tip for people just starting out using eyeliner (which I got from watching a youtube video) is to use small strokes to start with, drawing the line a little at a time, rather than attempting to do one long line. If you make a mistake, use your eyeshadow to colour over it and it's usually not very noticeable!

                    I'm on my second one of these now and find that they last me between 4 and 6 months, even though I use it almost everyday. This is a great product and I can now apply eyeliner with my eyes open and closed, all thanks to Bourjois who make applying make-up really easy and idiot proof!

                    Overall i recommend this product to girls everywhere!

                    I've recently brought this product and for the little money I paid for it i was pleasently suprised. The 'felt tip' type brush makes it easy and simple to apply and best of all is mess free. I've found in the past that some eye liners can sting, especially the liquid ones but this one left me feeling pain free and fabulous. The blackness of the liquid is bold and lasts all day leaving you feeling glamourous without having to worry about it fading off like normal eye liners. Although ive used liquid eye liners before i've never found one which allows me to create smooth lines, not only on my eye lid but also underneath. When it's time to clear the eye liners off, it comes off simply and quickly without spreading across your face, even if you've run out of make up wipes, dont worry it even comes off easily with just water!

                      Disadvantages

                      my must have!

                      As a girl Eyeliner is one of the must have make up products as instantly it makes your eyes sparkle and stand out. Yet it is one of the hardest products to find which actually works well. I have tried everything from pencils which smudge andafter an hour or two have completly gone from your eyes and liquids which can be difficult to apply espsically under the eye and can end up with you having eyeline goop in the corner of your eye not a good look!!

                      So I decided to try a new eyeliner which was on the market at £6.99 from boots it wasnt cheap but as every girl knows with make up you need to make the investment.

                      The eyeliner is about 10cm long and is in a sort of curved bottle, and when you remove the lid it looks like what I can only describe as a felt tip pen! But this is the genius of it! Its as easy as a pencil eyeliner to apply only it goes on alot smoother as its liquid which it is applying. You can create the lines as thick or thin as you want by pressing on harder or softer which is great! Not only this but it stays exactly where you have applied it, so no smudges and it lasts all day and no goop YAY!!

                      So girls my advise go out and get one of these its really worth the money!!
