So this week I have been mostly craving the 3 dot liners that have suddenly hit the market, Clarins have cornered the high end with their version and now the high street have caught up and on September 15th you can get your hands on it so I thought i'd let you know what I think of the £7 Clarins dupe.
|Bourjois Intuitive Liner*|
Apologies for the fact that I have ZERO makeup on in this pic apart from the liner & mascara!
The main use for this liner is to focus the dots in-between your lash line which makes it more defined & appear thicker. As you can see above it really does make a difference without looking too 'done' (I hope I don't have to point out which eye has the liner on & which doesn't) perfect for the office or more natural days, I think the most significant difference it will make is for people who suffer (yes I said suffer) with fair eyelashes like yours truly as we tend not to have a natural line which darker lashed ladies do.
Of course you can join all the dots & also use it as a regular liner to flick out to your hearts content on the days you want to look a little extra spesh! For lazy buggars like me this liner is amazing, it takes 10 seconds to do in the morning on top of your current routine, it makes you look more polished & your eyes stand out a little more.
Bourjois claim a 24 hour wear from this product, I haven't & will never test this promise because the 14 or so hours I have my makeup on for every day is enough of a test for me & this eyeliner did not budge on me all day in my sauna of an office and so a mega thumbs up for that, it certainly outlasts the Clarins one which transfered onto my upper lash line after 5 or so hours (something most liners do on me).
As a comparison with the Clarins liner the dots are a little more spaced out with the Bourjois one but I'm talking micromillimeters, everything else pretty much is the same except two main things;
1. The Bourjois one lasts significantly longer on myself
2. The Bourjois one is £6.99 rrp & the Clarins one is £20.00 rrp (I have seen it slightly cheaper online)
My advise put your £20 note back in your purse & whip out a tenner & wait for your change. Have you tried these liners out yet or are you on the fence about them??
