Price: 360 INR for .04 OZ
Shelf Life: The print got erased so I am unable to see the expiry date Thinking smile
 
Availability: In all Bourjois Outlets and available online at www.medplus.com
 
My Expectations: When the SA swatched this eyeliner I really loved how smoothly it glided on my wrist . It did appear to be dark and non-smudging so I purchased in without second thoughts. Read on to know if I am fooled by the swatch or if I got beneficial from my swatch judgement.

Look & Feel

 
  • Package: Comes in the form of a light weight pencil with a well gripped cap. So, you can just toss it around easily in your wallets/ handbags. The major con of the package is the wood. It doesn’t sharpen smoothly leading to product wastage Sad smile

Bourjois Clubbing Contour Eye Pencil Package

  • Shade: Black Party 41. Not the blackest black but black enough to give you noticeable eyes with buildable intensity.
  • Texture: It has a gliding texture which makes it to go smoothly even on the waterline. It’s not powdery and yet has a semi-matte finish. The texture makes it great for smudging and using it as a base for smokey-eyes.

Effects

  • Pigmentation? With single swipe you get medium color payoff and for full color 2 swipes are necessary.

Bourjois Clubbing Contour Eye Pencil Swatches

  • Smudge-proof? Yes it didn’t smudge at all on water-line as well as on the upper lash-line.
  • Water – Proof? It doesn’t smudge under water owing to it’s smudge-proof factor but it does fade away.

Bourjois Clubbing Contour Eye Pencil EOTD

  • Lasting Power? Stays intact for 6-7 hours on the upper lash-line but it keeps fading from the water-line and settles into the lashes. You can see the last trace of it at the 5th hour. So though your eyes doesn’t look completely bare it doesn’t stay put on the waterline. The above picture is taken half an hour of applying the eye-liner and you can see the faded corners.

Cost Efficiency:  Efficient.

Final Note
 
I definitely like the texture and the pigmentation of Bourjois Contour Clubbing Waterproof Pencil but I wish it stays for a longer time on the water-line. Not a disappointing purchase as it works amazingly well as a base for smokey-eye, but definitely it didn’t have the quality I hoped for through the swatch judgement.
