When I saw this pencil among other Bourjois eye pencils, I first thought that the SA had misplaced a lip liner and kept it with the eyeliners, but no, it was a pink eyeliner alright and suddenly I remembered that, I had read about how white eyeliners on the lower water line can make your eyes look bigger and grabbed it.

The shade “Rose Fantaisiste:”
It is baby pink in color. I actually wanted a white eyeliner only, but white was not there with Bourjois. Then, I thought that maybe pink will look more natural than white, since it is more close to the flesh tone. There are no shimmers or glitter particles. Once applied on the eyes, it appears natural and does not look odd. Since I have not used any white eye pencils, I do not know if white looks more natural though.
Texture of the pencil is creamy and glides smoothly on the waterline. It is opthalmologically tested and it did not irritate my eyes at all. It has a pearl finish. One swipe gives good color, but for an opaque coverage, you will have to swipe it 2 to 3 times. Be careful not to rub the lashes while you are applying it, since it might get stuck to the lashes and since it is pink, it will be seen obviously. In the photos, the color was not showing up much, so I had to apply it many times and hence it is looking a little clumpy. But, if you apply it neatly just 2 swipes, it looks good and natural. It does not smudge too.
Now, the big question: Does it really make your eyes look bigger and more awake? Well, yes. It is an illusion. When you look at the face in general, your waterline seems to be merged with the white of your eyes and your eyes will look bigger by the width of your waterline, that is maybe 2 millimeters. The good thing is that, when you apply this eyeliner, you can see the lower lashes clearly making a line, and if you apply mascara on the lower lashes, it really gives the effect of bigger eyes.
But sadly, the eyeliner does not stay for more than 2 to 3 hours on the water line. It starts fading after one to two hours itself. Once it starts fading, you cannot see much of it since the color is so light. I think other than using it on the water line, it can be used for highlighting eye brows or the inner corners of the eyes when you are using matching eye shadows.
