Bourjois Khol and Contour

RRP: £4.20
# of shades available: 13

As you see it on the screen is how you'll find it in the shop. Just a simple pencil in the colour of the liner, with the Bourjois logo and the name of the product, ingredients etc embossed onto it in silver, with a lid to keep the nib of the pencil protected. The pencil itself is about 12cm long including the lid, and weighs 0.04oz or 1.14g.

--What does the promo say?--
"Blend and shade to define the shape of the eye or apply to the inside rim of the eye for intensity. Available in a delectable palette of shades, from pearly pastels to dramatic darks."

Depends how you want to use it. You can follow the line of your upper lashes on your top eyelid, or you can follow the waterline just above your bottom lashes, or both if you're going for the gothic look. I personally opt for the waterline. Make sure the pencil is sharp (but not too sharp, unless you want a trip to Accident and Emergency...) so that your application is precise. Taking your time is probably the most important bit!

It's hard enough to create a good line, but not so hard that you can't smudge it a little bit if you want. Answer: it looks however you want it to look...

Perfect. No need to even keep this one in the fridge.

Obviously it's going to last longer on your upper eyelid than on your waterline, but there's nothing you can do about that.

--Value for money--
Excellent. This little baby will last you AGES, and the range of colours is amazing too.
