What Bourjois claims:
“Its ultra-soft khol tip draws a smooth and precise lip contour to line the lips and prevents your lipstick from running for hours on end!Enriched with mineral and plant pigments (rose and green tea) it is good for your skin. The formula is easy to blend, comfortable and smoothly glides onto the lips, leaving a soft velvety finish.”

I was really never into wearing lip liners until recently. It is a makeup step which one can skip pretty easily. But I think sometimes there are times when you want to take extra care and make sure your makeup looks perfect and stays and intact for hours. Guess that is where this Bourjois lip liner swoops in, for me atleast :p.
I have not tried lip liners from many brands yet but this Bourjois Lip Liner is among the better ones definitely. I was looking for a natural color lipliner so that it hides the pigmentation on my lips and helps in showing the true lipstick color. This particular shade is slightly peachish nude with a hint of brown undertones and would look very natural on light to medium skin tones I feel. It does last for a decent amount of time around 3.5-4.5 hours on its own on my lips and does survive light meals. I would have liked it if it was even longer lasting but since it is a light shade I can live with it :p. The liner is not very creamy though but I think that is what helps in making the lipsticks stay longer. It does accentuate the lip lines but is not drying on the lips.
I would personally not wear a lip liner on its own as it does make the lips look little dry and somewhat unhealthy especially if you already have dry lips. But those who like a matte lip look can definitely fill in the lips with this one as it is smooth to apply, not too creamy at the same time and the color oh so natural! Also, it is in a pencil form and can be sharpened easily if you want to define your lips to perfection!

Price: Rs 240/- for 1.14gm
Recommendation: Bourjois Lip Liner in Sienne kiss is one I will definitely recommend and continue to repurchase till I find the same color in with a creamier texture in some other brand. Though even on its own, the lip liner serves its purpose well and the range has great color options and i am sure something will catch your fancy, and at this price it won’t hurt either!
