REVIEW: Bourjois Khol & Contour Eye Pencil in Ultra Black


Review of Bourjois Khol & Contour Eye Pencil in Ultra Black

Guest Post By: Himani

Hey all beauty geeks!!! Today I am going to review Bourjois Khol & Contour Eye Pencil in Ultra Black. I was absent from the blog for a while. But now I am back and hope to be more active than before. Well, eye liners is not a novelty any more. It is probably the only item you will find with someone who is not into makeup at all. And of course, makeup junkies like us have tons and tons of eye liners. I am not an exception and own countless number of eyeliners.

Bourjois Khol & Contour Eye Pencil in Ultra Black was a very random pick at an airport at London. I had checked-in all my makeup and had nothing to look fresh during the 5-hour stopover. So, I bought this eye liner quickly without knowing anything about it and completely trusting the Bourjois brand. Did it prove to be an awesome liner or did I repent my random pick?? Let us know more about it.

Price of Bourjois Khol & Contour Eye Pencil in Ultra Black:

It costs USD 7-8 or INR 320/-

Bourjois Khol & Contour Eye Pencils come in various pretty shades. I picked up one in Ultra Black as I needed a black eye liner at the airport. Otherwise, I am sure I would have picked a colored one as I have numerous black eyeliners. So, the fate wanted me to try this liner. Ok, not that dramatic but still I am happy that I picked this khol cum eyeliner. It is absolutely one of the blackest blacks I own. The color is very very intense and has an awesome finish. It is neither very glossy nor very matte. It is bordering somewhere between satin and matte. I love the color and the finish. It is also a very versatile pencil. You can line, waterline or tightline your lashes and also use it as a base for your smoky eyes. Perfect companion while travelling when you need one thing to do all.

Bourjois Khol & Contour Eye Pencil in Ultra Black is ultra creamy and smooth eye liner. It does not tug the lids and goes on very evenly. Even though it is creamy, it does not crumble at all. This eye liner does not feel dry on the lids as well. Since it is a khol, you can also smudge it nicely to get a smoky effect. However, because of this, you also need to set it on your waterline using a black eye shadow and a compact powder around the lower lash line. Failure to do so will result in raccoon eyes very soon. But, it is very long lasting on the upper lash line. It stays put on my lids for as long as 8-10 hours. Bourjois Khol & Contour Eye Pencil in Ultra Black has a very impressive pigmentation. You do not need to go over and over again to get an intense line. Just one swipe gives you enough pigmentation.

Bourjois Khol & Contour Eye Pencil in Ultra Black comes as a pencil with a cap. You need to sharpen it to get a sharp tip. The eye liner sharpens well. The outer body is black in color, representing its shade. The gold lettering on the black looks very classy.

Buy Bourjois Khol & Contour Pencil from FLIPKART!

Ooooohhsss And Aaaahhhsss!!!
1. Intense black.
2. Very creamy texture.
3. Applies smoothly and evenly.
4. Impressive pigmentation.
5. Smudges easily for smoky effect.
6. Long lasting on upper lashline.
7. Muti-tasker.
8. Affordable.

1. Does not stay put for long on my waterline.
2. Smudges a lot if not set properly.
3. Limited availability.
4. Sharpening leads to wastage.


Bourjois Khol & Contour Eye Pencil in Ultra Black is a perfect eye liner with its opaque pigmentation, creamy texture and long staying power. If only it could stay put on my waterline and did not smudge, I would have called it my HG eye liner. However, I do not wear black eyeliners on my waterline as they make my eyes look smaller. So, I have eliminated its drawback in my own way. If you can also live with this limitation, do try Bourjois Khol & Contour Eye Pencil in Ultra Black.

Cover The Cover: Harper's Bazaar (India) March 2012

You all know that I love tweaking my blog here and there and making some changes, introducing newer features and well sometimes just hooking the blog onto some social networking site :) Well this time I am introducing a new feature that I promise will be really exciting for all beauty enthusiasts :) To start with this feature is called "Cover The Cover" where I shall be covering the cover pages of our favorite beauty and fashion magazines in terms of make-up.

REVIEW & LOTD: Faces Long Wear Pencil in Navy Blue

While doing the "Meet The Bloggers" feature every Saturday, I have realised (and I am sure that you all have too) that Faces is fast becoming a very popular brand amongst us especially the Faces Long Wear pencils. So much so that a lot of people prefer Faces Long Wear pencils to even Colorbar I-Glides and that ladies and gentlemen is quite a feat for a newly launched brand. So anyways, I got myself a "Navy Blue" from this range and I must say that I am very happy with it. This is my second pencil from Faces after "Turquoise Blue" and well it hasn't failed me either.
This particular shade is a beautiful deep blue that looks stunning on the eye lids.

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…
