Bourjois Liquid Liners: Intuitive Liner and Liner Feutre

I thought this package had been lost forever, as my ASOS parcels usually arrive after 4 days and since this one took a week and a half I'd given up on its arriving at all, but I wasn't too devastated as I'm not really big on eyeliner. While some girls love their crazy-thick cat-eye flicks, I'm someone who usually gets by with a passable line of kohl pencil. When I did decide that I wanted a liquid eyeliner pen, the first one I thought of was Bourjois' Liner Feutre. It received some good reviews, so I thought it wouldn't hurt to give it a go. I bought mine from ASOS, where the Bourjois Intuitive Liner is available (it hasn't been released in Australia yet), and paid less for both than the price of a single Liner Feutre instore





The Bourjois Intuitive Liner is a blatant copy and affordable alternative to the Too Faced 3-Way Lash Lining Tool and the Clarins 3-Dot Liner. The purpose of the trident-style tip is to dot along the lashline to give the illusion of thicker lashes. You can also turn it on its side and draw straight lines with it, as demonstrated here. It's not very inky, but that can't be helped. You get what you pay for, I guess. The concept is intriguing, which is why I got it. I'm not sure how much use I'll get out of it, but it's certainly nice to have.


I can't draw straight lines without a ruler.

The Bourjois Liner Feutre is a standard felt-tip liquid liner. The only other liquid liner I've tried is Face of Australia's version, which I couldn't get the hang of, so I gave it to a friend. This is the first pen liner I've tried, and I like it a lot. The tip isn't too stiff, and it's not too floppy so it's nice and easy to use. It's a darker black than the Intuitive Liner, but it's definitely not waterproof. It doesn't claim to be, but as I'm accustomed to waterproof mascaras, using a washable liquid liner is something I'll have to get used to.

I'm happy to finally have liquid liner pens! They're so much easier to use than non-pen liquid liners, and gel liners that require a clean angled brush each time. And after giving up on these arriving, it's such a pleasant surprise. I'm constantly reminded, but this just reinforces that patience is a virtue. :p

  3. I haven't tried any of these before and I never knew that there were "trident" (haha) liquid eyeliners out! The concept is so good, I could definitely make use of a product that can make my lashes appear fuller! What a shame that the Liner Feutre isn't waterproof :( I love it when parcels arrive, it makes me feel like a kid opening up a present!

    1. Hah I love when parcels arrive, but I hate the wait! I think a waterproof Liner Feutre would be a lot more difficult to remove though. :) x

  4. Oh wow, they seem quite lovely! I'm soo used to using pen eyeliners but from asian brands with very soft, fine brushes! I tried a liquid liner from boujois but didnt like the brush and dip applicator. The pronged applicator seems so interesting, id love to try! Thanks for sharing, I do want to order some make up bits from asos in the future!

    1. Has the Intuitive liner been released in Singapore? I don't like the traditional liquid liner- it's too fiddly imo. :) x
