Bourjois – Contour Clubbing in Bleu Neon #46


What Bourjois says:

The Contour Clubbing Waterproof eye pencil is the perfect finishing touch to a smoky look. Its waterproof formula is crease-resistant and makes for a perfect adherence of the colour. Its ultra-soft gliding texture enriched with jojoba and cotton oils intensely outlines the lash line. Remove with a waterproof make-up remover.


What I say:

  • + Smooth to apply
  • + Good pigmentation
  • + Lasts well
  • +- Few shimmery particles

I actually didn’t need a water-based remover to get rid of the liner.

What Nyx says: A radiant eye liner that also doubles as an eye shadow. Made with a blend of mineral oil and powder, our creamy Jumbo Eye Pencils glide on effortlessly—no pulling, tugging or fading—and come in a rainbow of vivid hues. Some call her chubby. We say voluptuous.

Eye Pencils

Eye pencils are great in summer as an extra base for your eyeshadow or in order to get more vibrance out of your eyeshadows. My latest addition are the ones from NYX, and I particularly like the Milk one, as it can be used as a nice highlight in the inner corner of the eye as well. I would usually would apply a bit of colour on the lid and then smudge it with my fingers. You have to work quickly as they tend to set fast. Especially the ones from Catrice are very long-lasting and you might need a waterproof make up remover to get them off again.

NYX Blush in #11 Taupe

NikkiTutorials compares her favorite blusher NYX Taupe with MAC Taupe. She uses this blush for contouring, which is why I decided to give it a go as well. Absolutely love it, especially during winter when I am extra pale.
