Rave Review | Bourjois Effect Smoky Pencil in Intense Black

I'm very loyal to liquid eye liners.  But when I''m in a hurry, I have always reached for my Rimmel Soft Kohl Kajal Eye Pencil (in Jet Black).  I've been using this for as long as I can remember.

A couple of months ago, I won the Bourjois Effect Smoky Pencil in Intense Black in a Twitter Giveaway.  So, I strayed.  Boy, am I glad!  This is the most black eye pencil I have ever used.  Like seriously.  Intense black indeed.

The pencil itself is two-sided.  One side has the pencil itself, and on the other side there's a small brush to smudge the liner if you want to create a smoky eye.  It's also really soft compared to the Rimmel pencil and glides on to my lash line effortlessly.

The formula is long lasting.  Although it does smudge on to the top part of my lid, I put it down to my super oily eye lids (like an oil sick, no joke.).  I just love how even after I get home after work, the liner is still there, intensely black.  The Rimmel on the other hand is long gone by the end of the day.  I absolutely love the Bourjois pencil!  Tiny little issue, because it's so soft, the tip breaks off when trying to sharpen.  But that's just me being pedantic.  I still love it!

Will I repurchase?  I'm thinking yes!  Although I still love my old, faithful Rimmel pencil, unfortunately it has been knocked off the top spot by this beaut.

Available here for £5.49.
