Bourjois Khol & Contour Shadow & Light Swatches!

One thing you will almost always find me wearing is a kohl eye liner.  I wear it most days to enhance the shape of my eye and there will always be one in my handbag.  Bourjois have recently created a new selection of kohl pencils (6 in total) and they are all absolutely lovely!


On one end of the pencil is a dark matte shade and the other is a lighter, almost iridescent, shimmery shade which compliments the darker side perfectly. You can use these in a number of different ways – using the darker shade around the eye and the lighter shade on the waterline, or you can even use them as a base for eye shadows so you create a colour gradient of light to dark.

Every single one of these pencils are seriously creamy, pigmented and soft, meaning you needn’t worry about tugging at the skin trying to apply them.  I absolutely love the colour varieties and find it very hard to choose a favourite as they are all stunning.  I love the grey/pink combo as it gives a more subtle twist on the smokey smouldering eye and the bronze pencil is perfect for both day and night.  Also – I’ve never worn a khaki green eyeliner before but this one is absolutely beautiful and very easy to wear with its champagne accompaniment. 

Unfortunately, these babies won’t be hitting stores till June, so in the mean time you can decide which you prefer!  They will retail for around £5.59 each and will be available from the Bourjois stand at Boots and Superdrug stores from June!

What is your favourite eyeliner?  Which colour combo would you wear the most?

    I've seen the black/white duo in stores recently and liked the idea, so it's great to see they'll be launching more!

    I love the eyeliner that's swatched last. Beautiful colours! I never wear eyeliner but am seriously thinking about getting this when it comes into stores x

    This is a brilliant idea! It gives you an option of buying a safe eyeliner colour while giving you a chance to try a colour you wouldn't pick up on its own. I am torn as to my favorite as well I like the last two on the right but would be interested in trying the khaki with my green eyes. Lovely post. x

    I love how these have a dark and light shade on them 🙂 I think my favourites are middle and far right ones 🙂

    L-R Number 4 and 5:) 4, we can use it everyday. And 5, we need its brown alternative:) Actually 1th one's shimmer is beautiful too.

    Conclusion: I'd buy them all:))

    I really like the grey one, its a bit less harsh than wearing straight black for days when I want a softer look. Will be picking that one up 🙂

    These are such a good idea! Roll on June so I can pick some of these up 🙂

But me, absolute klutz that I am forgot to pick one up *smacks forehead* Will def be getting few of these when they hit the shops, agree with ya on the pink & grey one, so pretty, and the olive & gold one looks GORGUZ!

    Ooh, the olive & gold one caught my eye immediately! I hope these are released elsewhere outside the UK so I can get my hands on these too :))
