Bourjois Regard Effet Duochrome Eyeliner – 57 Noir Emeraude

Bourjois Regard Effet Duochrome Eyeliner 57 Noir Emeraude

I love Bourjois eye pencils. I had reviewed their Kohl and Contour in Bleu Virtuose some time back and its one of the most-used eye pencils of mine. They are affordable and the quality is superb. Since I already own a blue color, I thought I will venture into green color this time. They have a good color selection and I was confused initially as to which one I should buy and finally picked up this beauty.

Bourjois Regard Effet Duochrome Eyeliner – 57 Noir Emeraude

Product Description:

  • 2 tone reflection for incredibly captivating eyes.
  • A palette of original shades with 2 tone reflection.
  • A colour spectrum effect.
  • The duochrome effect is created by shimmer particles that change colour in the light.
  • With highly concentrated pigments, it highlights eyes with intense and luminous shades.
  • A gliding, soft lead.
  • The comfortable, smooth and easy-to-blend formula, enriched with natural wax, makes easy application and intense colour in one stroke.

Price:

Rs. 330 for 1.17 gm.

Texture:

Texture of the eye pencil is creamy and soft and it glides easily on the lids. In one stroke, it gives you good color payoff. It can be swiped two to three times for a more dark and intense color. The shimmer particles are not overly visible and not at all chunky or glittery. It just gives a beautiful shiny look and helps in reflecting the light. Bourjois claims that these shimmer particles change colour in the light, but since they are very tiny, we cannot exactly observe all that.

You can either use it as a normal eyeliner or apply it all over the lids like an eyeshadow. It can be used safely on the water line. It smudged only very little. Usually, no eyeliner stays on my water line for more than an hour. Even this one faded after an hour, but it left a green tint on the waterline for another hour more and then it disappeared. It blends easily with other eye shadows. While using it as an eyeliner, it glided beautifully, but when I applied it all over my lids like an eye shadow, it was tugging at the lids. Also, when I applied it all over my lids alone with no eyeshadow, and then tried to smudge it with a brush, it did not blend very easily and the color faded off a little too. Maybe you have to use it with an eyeshadow base. I am new to eye makeup and this is a beginner’s perspective, but you can easily apply it over a green eyeshadow and then blend it to get a beautiful shiny green color.

Colour:

The shade “Noir Emeraude” is a dark olive green. Because of the shimmer particles in the liner, the color appears to be a mix of dark and light green. In one stroke, it gives you good color payoff, but not completely opaque. If you apply 3 swipes, the color becomes intense and it highlights the eyes beautifully. The color is not very bright and safe for girls who are starting to venture into the world of colored eye pencils. It is not one of those colors where people keep giving you second glances.  If you use it as an eyeliner, you can safely wear it to work also.
