bourjois queen attitude







Bourjois Queen Attitude Mascara: £9.49*
Bourjois Queen Attitude Khol Kajal: £6.99*

Based on the original badass, Cleopatra (who really had that whole eyeliner business DOWN), Bourjois have released new eye duo Queen Attitude which consists of a mascara and a slightly exotic looking kohl liner.

I'm a huge fan of the mascara despite only having used it a few times. That's rich coming from me though since I usually prefer my mascara to dry out a bit and get on with it better after a couple of weeks. This formula, however, is wet without being gloopy, super black and seems to hold a curl just fine which is no mean feat for my poker straight lashes! The brush has 'lash directing bristles' which are angled so that the lashes are stretched towards the outer corners for a flirty, feline appearance. Usually to achieve this kind of look it's a killer to remove but thankfully with this mascara that's not the case - taking my makeup off is easy peasy. The formula contains beeswax, pro-vitamin B5, is paraben free and suitable for those with sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. This magic wand comes in at a cool £9.49 which I think is a fantastic price for such a good mascara. I may even like it more than my absolute favourite, YSL Effet Faux Cils Waterproof due to the easiness of removal. Now that IS gasp-worthy.

The accompanying kohl liner is a bit of a let down for me. I must admit it was the product I was more excited about out of the two, and I think that will most likely be the case for everyone else too as it's so new to the high street (compared to more expensive offerings from Clarins and Guerlain). Being used to liquid eyeliner for the most part I was disappointed with how grey this was. Perhaps it's because I don't like wearing liner on my inner rim (pet hate even though everyone does it!) but applying the normal way just smudges and looks messy. It probably would have come out darker if I kept going over it as it did when I tested it on the back of my hand but I wore it as I would any liner. That all being said though I do really rate this product for an easy smoky look as it's so smudgy and gives that grungy feel to your makeup. I'd definitely repurchase as it's so pretty, plus great for touchups during the day or for transforming your makeup from daytime to evening. It's a great price and will last you forever! The sharpening aspect of this product does confuse me though as sooner or later it's going to just look like a stump? Somebody enlighten me!

Have you tried either of these products yet? What do you think of this format for eyeliner?

  11. Looked at the eye liner yesterday and like you had no idea how it would sharpen as its to soft/chunky! They obviously didn't think it through or we are missing something!

  13. these eyeliners are specifically for the inner of the eye so the shape isnt supposed to be worn down you put it between the waterlines and move it along, we used to get them from a friend in india who was an avid user!

    1. This one can be used on both, I understand that's the original use for them but just thought I'd review it in the way I do wear it as I hate wearing liner on my inner rim!

    1. Yeah it does actually! Might make other liners last longer over the top although I haven't tried that yet!

  16. This particular khol pencil is specifically used on the inner rim of the eye and lower lash line to give a jet black, smokey almost smouldering effect. Usually, you'd get that dark look if you apply it this way. From similar khol pencils that I've used, they generally don't work as well on the upper lash line because they are far to smudgy and too...melty(?) But I think I'd probably use an angled brush with a bit of the eyeliner product on it and use it as a sort of cake/gel liner. Perhaps give that a go and see if it turns out any better! (: xx

  26. the mascara sounds great but i agree with you, the shape of the kohl pencil seems really impractical. even if you did just glide it between the waterlines, i still think it would wear down a lot over time. eh.

  27. I love the look of the mascara, def going to be purchasing this. But the eyeliner- I agree, how do you sharpen it? Bit strange!
