Lip liner is a wooden pencil or retractable pencil that is used to line the rim of the mouth. It’s purpose is to define the mouth and prevent lipstick and gloss from “bleeding” or running onto the outer rim of the mouth. Also to even out the rim of the lips for a more defined shape. My lip makeup is incomplete without the final stroke of a lip liner. Today I am going to write about a brownish lip liner in my stash which is Bourjois Levres Contour Lip Pencil in shade no.16 Extravagante.

My experience with Bourjois Paris Levres Contour Lip Liner 16 Extravagante:
The shade is a very nice one and compliments my brownish lipsticks beautifully. It helps in keeping my lippies budge-proof and bleeding proof. Thus this liner not only did a fab job of keeping lipstick in its place but also give a smooth outline to lips. It is very easy to work with this liner, just one light stroke of this liner and you are done-I experience no pulling or tugging of lips.
Bourjois Paris Levres Contour Lip Liner Swatches:-
The texture is very smooth which feels good while applying but owing to its soft texture I feel there is a lot of product wastage while sharpening. As far as its staying power is concerned this liner is awesome it stay put for hours without moving from its place. Some days when I want a matte effect I simply apply a single layer of this lip liner smooth it with my fingers and I am good to go…it not only look pretty but also stay put for 5-6 hours easily. Some days I also apply gloss on top of it- this way it stay for about 3-4 hours and then fades evenly without leaving any stain.
