My favourite drugstore pencil eyeliners, Bourjois VS Maybelline






Search for the perfect pencil liner is hard and tricky one. Just as you thought you found the perfect pigmented and easy to apply liner, it turns out it smudges as fast as it applies. The one that gives you the prettiest line is not always the one that won't irritate the eyes and so on... Summer is the time when we all opt for simpler looks, skipping the liquid eyeliner and going only with a bit of smudged pencil on the lids is to go look for the most of us who still do want to wear eye makeup in tropical heat. With that in mind I thought I should write about my two favourite drugstore pencil liners (the award for my favourite high end eyeliner is for the longest time in the hands of YSL pencil eyeliner).

Bourjois Khol&Contour eye pencil in 72 Noir Expert

pros:

-it's easy to apply and glides on over the lids and waterline effortlessly
-even the contact lens wearers can use it, it's been tested and proven safe for contact lenses
-it lasts super long even on the waterline
-the tip doesn't break when you sharpen it
-it doesn't smudge

cons:

-it's not the most pigmented of the pencil liners so in takes a bit of effort to get the intense line
-it's not very blendable and therefore can't be used for fast and easy smokey eye looks


Maybelline Master drama Khol liner in Ultra Black

pros:

-you can apply it super easy, it's one of those eyeliners you apply in a blink of an eye
-it's super pigmented, I sometimes can't believe how pigmented it is
-you can smudge it into that effortless smokey eye in no time

cons:

-the tip breaks easily when you sharpen it which can be frustrating
-after a while it can melt and smear, but to be fer it happens only after a supper busy day and after many hours of wear


Mainly I balance between these two completely different eyeliners (depending on the look I want) and I'm pretty happy with both. What's your favourite drugstore pencil liner?



Potraga za savršenom olovkom za oči je teška i kompleksna stvar. Taman kada pomislite da ste pronašli onu koja je dovoljno pigmentovana i lako se nanosi, ispadne da se ona jednako lako razmaže. Olovka koja vam daje najlepšu liniju nije uvek ona koja ne iritira oči, i tako dalje... Leto je vreme kada se svi opredeljujemo za jednostavniju šminku tako da je preskakanje tečnog ajlajnera i nošenje olovke na očima idealan izgled za sve nas koji i dalje želimo da nosimo šminku na očima i na tropskim vrelinama. S tim na umu pomislila sam da pišem o moja dve omiljene olovke za oči iz drogerija (nagrada za moju omiljenu skuplju olovku je već duže vreme u rukama YSL olovke za oči).


Bourjois Khol&Contour olovka za oči u nijansi 72 Noir Expert

za:

-lako se nanosi i klizi preko kapaka i unutar njih bez puno truda
-mogu je koristiti i oni koji nose kontaktna sočiva, testirana je za bezbedno nošenje sa sočivima
-traje jako dugo čak i unutar kapaka
-vrh se ne lomi prilikom rezanja
-ne razmazuje se

protiv:

-nije baš najpigmentovanija olovka pa je potrebno malo truda da se dobije intenzivna linija
-ne razmazuje se lako pa ne može da se koristi za brz i jednostavan smokey eye



Maybelline Master drama olovka za oči u boji Ultra Black

za:

-nanosi se jako lako, ovo je jedna od olovaka koju nanesete dok trepnete
-vrlo je pigmentovana, ponekad mi je i neverovatno koliko je ova olovka crna
-lako se razmaže u onaj nonšalantni smokey eye

protiv:

-vrh se lomi dok je režete što može da bude frustrirajuće
-posle nekog vremena zna da se istopi i razmrlja, ali da budem pravična to se dešava samo posle jako napornog dana i višesatnog nošenja


Uglavnom balansiram između ove dve potpuno različite olovke (u zavisnosti od izgleda koji želim da postignem) i jako sam zadovoljna obema. Koja je vaša omiljena olovka za oči iz drogerija?
