Bourjois Contour Clubbing Waterproof eyeliner in Purple Night - review, swatch and EOTD

By Tarry


Hello my lovely friends...

Thanks for all the love you showered on me for my first EOTD. It makes me really happy and encouraged... 

So by now, you all must be aware of my love for eye pencils. Ever since I discovered them, they have been my savior (Ok Ok I know I am getting dramatic...) But trust me guys, on days when I hardly have time to get ready (which is almost everyday...) they are my real life savers. 

Recently, I hauled a lot from Bourjois and for the first time ever, got a purple eyeliner. Yes, for the first time in my life, I moved away from black, brown and blue and tried Purple. And the compliments it has been fetching me (people say that it brings out the colour of my brown eyes really well), this lovely pencil has become my staple. 

So ladies and my super awesome ladies, presenting to you, my most favourite possession at the moment.... the Bourjois Contour Clubbing Waterproof eyeliner in Purple Night. 




Price : Rs 360 for 1.7 gms. 

Availability : Bourjois counters and also, online through Nykaa.com 

What the brand says : The Contour Clubbing Waterproof eye pencil is the perfect finishing touch to a smoky look. Its waterproof formula is crease-resistant and makes for a perfect adherence of the colour. Its ultra-soft gliding texture enriched with jojoba and cotton oils intensely outline the lash line. Remove with a waterproof make-up remover. Ophthalmologically tested.




Packaging : The pencil is a soft sharpenable pencil, where the body and the cap are of the colour of the shade. This makes it easy to find in my stack of pencils... :)
The lettering is in lovely metallic blue, which is common for all shades of the range. 




Now about the colour. I am not very fond of purple as a colour (my younger sister is totally mad about it and can use anything purple...:) However, I have been reading that purple looks super good on brown Indian eyes and since I have brown eyes, I thought of giving it a try. 

The colour is a lovely deep purple with light bluish shimmer. But this shimmer does not effect its super creamy texture at all. It is super pigmented and glides easily on the lids. One swipe and you have lovely colour, two makes it even more sexy. I prefer using shimmery pencils only on lashes, but have tried this one on the lower lashline as well. However, haven't tried on the waterline as yet. 





The staying power of the eyeliner is also superb. When worn at 9 in the morning, it was still there till 8 p.m, although the intensity was much lesser. But still, it was making its presence felt. 

Below is the swatch, which is just a single swipe. Notice the intensity of the colour :-)




And now comes the Eotd. The first pic was taken at 10 a.m. and the second one at around 4 p.m.
See, no change in the intensity of this super awesome colour :-)


Morning....


Evening....


Overall, I will certainly recommend this pencil and colour to everyone who loves colour on their eyes. Women with black and brown eyes will definitely rock it for sure.A must have in the makeup bag... :-) I am giving it 4.99 out of 5 on PEL scale...
