Pencil eyeliner for contact lens wearers


Since I was 17 I've been wearing glasses and soon after I got my first pair of glasses I started wearing contacts. Clueless to the contact wearers ways I thought I can continue to wear all the same eye makeup I wore before. Later I've learned it's not that simple. One of my friends, a fellow high prescription, high makeup addiction gal had a very unusual eye infection for the couple last weeks. Her doctor said it was an allergy, but when we were chatting beauty/eye infections, I remembered what my doctor said when I asked her about eyeliners. She told me I must use an eyeliner that's tested on contact lens wearers. I have to admit I haven't been so good at this (if you are reading this blog you probably know a thing or two about makeup buying urge) and I let some eyeliners slide. Naturally, as soon as I heard her story I went out and picked out a ''safe'' eyeliner. 

Before, I knew Bourjois Effet Smokey eyeliner is tested on people who wear contacts and I used this eyeliner and loved it so my destination was the nearest Bourjois counter. There I looked among eyeliners and saw this gem, Bourjois Kohl&Contour eye pencil. It was also tested on contact lens wearers and the reason why I got this one instead of Effet Smokey is because it's less creamy and more dry. Effet Smokey is formulated to blend well and give you that effortless and chic smokey eye. Therefore it must be creamy. As a fan of dryer eyeliners (they last longer, among other things) I opted for Kohl&Contour this time. The shade I got is Noir expert 72, a nice deep black, they have one darker black shade, Ultra black 71, and five more non black shades. 
I'm very happy with this eyeliner, it applies well, stays on for ages (at Bourjois they claim up to 16 hours), doesn't smudge and the color is nice. It looks great on the eyes. If you wear contacts and didn't find an eyeliner that suits you, I highly recommend this one. And even if you don't and just want a good eyeliner, this one is a keeper.

The rest of my makeup here: Benefit creaseless cream shadow in Birthday suit, Bourjois Liner Pinceau eyeliner in Black, Rimmel Lash accelerator endless mascara, darkest brown shade from Coastal scents 88 original palette on the brows.



Naočare nosim od 17. godine a ubrzo posle prvog para naočara počela sam da nosim i sočiva. Bezbrižna i neupoznata sa pravilima nošenja sočiva mislila sam da mogu da nastavim da koristim istu šminku koju sam koristila i ranije. Kasnije sam naučila da nije baš tako. Jedna od mojih drugarica, takođe zaljubljenik u šminku sa velikom dioptrijom, u poslednjih nekoliko nedelja imala je čudnu očnu infekciju. Njen lekar je zaključio da je u pitanju alergija i dok smo pričale o proizvodima i infekcijama oka, setila sam se šta je moja lekarka mislila kada sam je pitala o olovkama za oči. Rekla je da bih morala da koristim onu koja je testirana na ljudima koji nose sočiva. Moram da priznam da ovo nisam striktno poštovala (ako čitate ovaj blog onda verovatno znate sve o nagonu za kupovinu šminke) i progledala sam kroz prste nekim olovkama. Prirodno, čim sam čula priču moje drugarice potrčala sam da kupim ''bezbedan'' ajlajner. 

Od ranije sam znala da je Bourjois Effet Smokey testirana na ljudima koji nose sočiva, imala sam ga pre nekog vremena, svideo mi se, tako da je najjbliža prodavnica sa Bourjois šminkom bila moje odredište. 
Tamo sam pretražila olovke za oči i otkrila skriveni dragulj, Bourjois Kohl&Contour olovku za oči.
Takođe je testirana i pogodna za nošenje sa sočivima i jedini razlog zbog koga sam uzela ovu olovku a ne Effet Smokey je zato što je manje kremasta i više suva. Effet Smokey je formulisana tako da se fino razmazuje i stvara taj nonšalantni, šik smokey eye. Zbog toga ova olovka mora da bude kremasta. Pošto sam ljubitelj suvljih olovki (duže traju, između ostalog) na kraju sam izabrala Kohl&Contour. Nijansa koju sam ja kupila je Noir expert 72, lepa tamna crna, postoji i tamnija opcija, Ultra black 71, kao i još pet nijansi u drugim bojama.
Jako sam zadovoljna ovom olovkom, lepo se nanosi, ostaje na očima dugo (proizvođač tvrdi čak 16 sati), ne razmazuje se i boja je odlična. Sjajno izgleda na očima. Ako nosite sočiva i niste našli olovku za oči koja vam odgovara, ova je svakako ona koja se ponovo kupuje.

Ostala šminka koju ovde nosim: Benefit creaseles cream senka u boji Birthday suit, Bourjois Liner Pinceau ajlajner u boji Black, Rimmel Lash accelerator endless maskara, najtamnija braon iz Coastal scents 88 original palete na obrvama.

  1. Ja nikako da prelomim i počnem sa sočivima. Nosim naočare već 10 godina. :) Znam da Bourjois ima i jednu maskaru, roze poklopac, crna tuba, koja je isto pogodna za ljude sa sočivima. :)

    1. Meni je u početku bilo komplikovano, sat vremena mi je bilo potrebno da ih izvadim. :D Ali kad se navikneš onda je super. :) Pogledaću i tu maskaru čim stignem, koristila sam njihovu Volume glamour Max Definition maskaru, dobra je samo što se teško skida.

    1. Jesu, onda kad skupiš hrabrost bar možeš da nastaviš iste olovke da koristiš. :)
