Bourjois Khol and Contour Eyeliner Pencil – 08 Rose Fantaisiste

Bourjois Khol and Contour Eyeliner Pencil – 08 Rose Fantaisiste

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.

  1. oh I got all excited when I saw it in your eyes. It’s look soo pretty… but sad about the staying power. 🙁 Although with kohls I do like to carry them with me and reapply at any given chance. may be you could do the same. It is looking superb in your eyes. 🙂

  2. Jismi, your bare eyes itself looks awsome 🙂 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)
    Your eyes and lips (seen in lipstick posts) are very beautiful naturally

  3. I have it in white and it is the same problem … I have wheatish skin so it looks odd on me you have great lashes ! thats all I was staring at. Mine are sparse 🙁

    1. Oh..which brand was that pencil? I guess on the waterline only gel eyeliners stay long.. Thanks for the compli 🙂 blush blush..

  4. I have the same one in brown – the staying power sucks so bad i barely use the pencil 🙁
    love the light pink color – look so much better than white (which ive found isnt the best idea for people with darker skin/ warmer skin tones (NC 35 and higher).

    1. Yeah, that was what i thought when i saw pink..but then i was thinking maybe white will merge better with the white of the eyes and look more natural..don’t know, will try out a white one when i see next 🙂

  5. I think i’ll probably get this one! i am trying to find a good nude/skintone color eyepencil for waterline and just can’t seem to find one and this one comes closer and plus quite affordable! your pics are superb! crystal clear! how do you manage to take such gorgeous clear pics of your eyes?

    1. Thanks Parita..:-) I click a huge number of pics and then select the good ones out of them..and my camera is pretty good that too helps 🙂 Yeah, u can get this one if you are not bothered about the staying power 🙂

  6. Looks pretty on your eyes jismi! I face the same problem of low staying power with elf white pencil too… 🙁 🙁

    1. Oh..sad 🙁 i guess almost all pencils have this problem with waterline..maybe we should try white gel eyeliner 😀

  7. I love dis nd I dont mind reapplying… Maybe u cud carry it wid u nd reapply as often as required. I dunno why but I am biased towards Bourjois products! 🙂
