The day I spotted the Effet Smokey Pencil from Bourjois, I have been noticing it as a brand worth checking out. Then came The Healthy Mix foundation and the Smokey Eye Trio. My date with Bourjois became inevitable.
As a part of the recent trip to the Bourjois counter, I explored some products and bought some. So here begins mon affaire francaise.
Bourjois Regard Effet Duochrome Eyeliner
The Duo Chrome Pencils, as the name suggests, have a dual colour effect. For eg, the ones I bought are noir emeraude and brun mordore.
Noir Emeraude – is a combination of Black and Emerald Green
and Brun Mordore – combination of Brown and Shimmery Copper.
All pencils in the duo chrome range are shimmery. The pigmentation is quite good.
Consistency is more like soft colour pencils and not creamy like that of the Maybelline Eye Studio liners. But it does not tug and pull on your skin like a how a normal colour pencil would..ouch!!
The staying power is superb..in fact much better than the Maybelline liners, which stays for about 4 to 5 hours decently and then begin to fade quite a bit. But this stayed put for almost the whole day..and I was really happy.

Retails at INR 280 per piece.
Bourjois Smokey Eye Trio Eye Shadow
I bought the shade Rose Vintage 05..Yet to try it on as a full fledged eye shadow.
Retails at INR 625.
Available in 6 Shade combinations.
I got a cute pink make up kit as a gift with my purchase.
It has 2 sections- one is for holding pencils, brushes etc. The other side is a netted and zipped area.There is a separate detachable zippered pouch in the centre. Isn’t it cute?
The SA was a very helpful girl unlike the ones in Lakme. She was not at all pushy and was patient when I tried almost all their products 🙂 She also gave me a sample of the Healthy Mix foundation.
Would rate my Bourjois experience as extremely pleasant and next in must buy list is the Effet Smokey Pencils, Bourjois Docteur Glamour Lipstick in Rose Toubib (hope its still available) and Brush Foundation. Maybe later on.
All in all, I would say J’aime Bourjois….Do vous?
