Bourjois Pinceau Eyeliner in Or Neo Classique and Noir

As a relative newbie to liquid eyeliner, and indeed eyeliner in general until about 2 years ago, I didn’t want to spend a lot on something that I wasn’t sure about and wasn’t that good at applying.  I chanced upon this gold liner from Bourjois in Or Neo Classique when doing a shop on ASOS (although I can only find it in Boots now)  and as it was only £5.99, I flung it into my virtual basket with abandon.  I liked it so much I recently purchased the black version, in Noir,  which although less forgiving to my unskilled, wobbly hands, is equally fab.

The liner itself has a fairly firm, thin brush which can be used lightly for a thin line or with a slightly firmer hand for a thicker line.   As you can see from my swatches below, the gold is an almost green-tinged gold, not a yellow gold, and I have found that it looks perfect for a polished look with a neutral base (I like Bobbi Brown’s Cream Eyeshadow in Shore) and a red lip such as Mac’s Viva Glam Cindy.

It lasts ALL day without budging or smudging, even through a particularly exerting run after work, and it is very easy to apply, although it does take a while to set so be careful to wait for a minute if you need to finish applying your eye makeup.  I would also recommend wiping the brush a little before applying, as it can pick up quite a lot of product at once. 
This is an excellent affordable liner which is easy to use and does not budge until you are ready to remove it.  If, like me, you are not an eyeliner pro, this is very easy to use, especially the gold shade which is more forgiving of any errors and mistakes. 

Price –£5.99

  1. Definitely getting the gold one! I love liquid eyeliner, need to branch out from my normal black!


  2. Lauren-Ella - yes, the gold one is an easy way to ease yourself into something different from black,

    Dolly Daydream - It, is would certainly recommend it.

  3. Never really been a fan of liquid eyeliner I always mess it up when applying it but I would love to give the gold liquid eyeliner a go! :) Xx

  4. Claire Louise - I am rubbish at it but honestly, the gold is sooo easy to use.
