Bharat & Dorris Cream Liner No.5: Review & Swatches


B&D Cream Liner in No.5: Review & Swatches

I bought this during Diwali when I was going through my ‘Teal phase’. Still being a newbie to B&D, I wanted to try something new. I decided to go for their eye liners but didn’t feel to convinced with the eye pencils since they didn’t look too pigmented 9maybe it was just the testers)Anyways, the minute I saw their cream liners arranged on the rack, I just had to have a look. They had majorly the basic colors and I wanted something a bit different. So when I saw this, it was a no brainer for me and I picked it up without even swatching it. So yes gals, this was another instance when my brain was run over by my heart and made me get it πŸ˜‰

  • Price: INR 390. Yeps…I was so stunned when I saw the price tag. Where most brands charge sky high prices for gel/cream liner, here I was, holding such a gorgeous color for 390 bucks!

My take on B&D Cream Liner in No.5:

  • Packaging:Comes in a pot form like most cream liners and is not accompanied with a brush…But for 390bucks, I don’t really mind at all. The packaging is sturdy and hard to break or shatter…Infact, I think its more likely to break any object it comes in contact with!.

  • Color: This is a deep dark teal shade with strong blue accents and a tinge of purple. It does have shimmer content, but nothing heavy or OTT. I really do love this shade especially since its the perfect blue-teal color and can be worn with many outfit regardless of whether its blue or green πŸ™‚

  • Pigmentation & Texture: This is another highly pigmented liner and is super creamy. One dip is sufficient to draw a perfect line from one end to the other and then another dip for thickening as desired. This can even be used as an eyeshadow and looks gorgeous when coupled with black to create a smokey eye.
  • The only think I don’t really like would be that just after a month of having & using this, it’s already started drying. Thank god for Duraline (which A convinced me to buy during the sale) or else it would need to be tossed out within 2 months or so.
  • Staying Power: This liner stays put for eons! No need for touch ups at all either since the liner remains glossy for a long long time. I have worn it longest for 13hrs and it didn’t budge at all. I tried smudging it, but it takes a lot of effort to do so. Even on contact with water, this didn’t run…But pls note contact with water refers to me splashing my facewith water in the middle of the day and not scrubbing or walking thru the pouring rains :))

Why I love B&D Cream Liner in No.5:

  • Soft & creamy texture.
  • Staying power is the best I’ve experienced till date.
  • The transparent tub packaging makes it easy to identify the shades amongst many.
  • It doesn’t mention so, but it is waterproof
  • Fragrance free
  • Color payoff & pigmentation is commendable. The shades comes off so dense and rich on the lids.
  • Pretty affordable.

Why I don’t like B&D Cream Liner in No.5

  • One needs to have duraline if you buy this since it dries pretty quick. I’m not sure whether this was just a coincidence with my liner though..
  • Also, it would be nice if they named their shades instead of numbering them.


  • Pigmentation: 5/5
  • Staying Power: 5/5
  • Packaging: 5/5
  • Availability: 4/5
  • Price vs. Quality:4.5/5

            • abhi toh just the gel liner in black…it is sooooper black…i wanted to get their concealer too, but the SA was so lazy that instead of matching me to a shade, she straightaway told me that I don’t need a concealer because my under-eye area isn’t that pigmented…who does that????

              I plan on going again to pick up a couple more stuff…probably lip stuff

              • haha! maybe she was a really gud Sa who wanted t save ur money πŸ˜‰

                haan, ive seen their black liners ke swatches..its totally pitch black na?

                • pata hai…inglot mein they have the help yourself policy….but concealers and foundation ke lie toh i need help from someone na…i took a friend with me, but i still wanted professional help!!!

  6. I really think B&D should expand elsewhere..really the stuff is super nice. I got an angled crease brush and its amazing…Zaara I dunno when my shopping or rather cosmetics ban is gonna get over πŸ˜₯ πŸ˜₯ ..The first thing am gonna do is get stuff from my MAC wishlist..You wanna come to jewel square??

  11. Very very pretty shade Zara…and your liner application is just perrfect…. πŸ™‚ :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes: :inlove: :inlove: :inlove: :inlove: :inlove:

          • Blore is so much better i nthat sense…in blore atleast i used t wear e/s and go…just a mono but even then..and here nobody uses anythin! kajal is the fav and maybe lipstick..nothin else.. :((

            • Same here Zee, It seems I am the only one who enjoys makeup! Y’day my colleague(lady!) was asking me, what is the whole drama of blush color. Pink lo and buy a peach and your done. and she cracked a PJ too, someday girls will start wearing blue and green too hehehehehe. I just wanted to hit her hard, but couldnt for obvious reasons! πŸ˜› .sorry for the bakwas! The shade is so lovely Zara. I never used a gel liner, always think they would be so diificult to apply. But seeing this pretty shade, I will try it re. What brush u use dear? I have 2 teal pencil liners from Chambor and Revlov. But this color is so pretty and I so much love B&D for their cost!

              • haha! naa…isnot bakwas.but its so true…

                B&D is so affordable and cool..and u shud ry using cream liners…i mysef dint kno how t use them till the beginning of this yr:) i use a bent liner brush from bare essentials…but u get an equally good one from inglot as well which A has reviewed…the bent angle makes it so much easier to apply these liners..

          • hahaha…. no Ana… i work for a contruction company, L&T, so i think you can imagine the make-up craze here. though whenever I am all decked up.. i am highly appreciated πŸ˜‰

              • hahahahaha….. yeah, it is. but it’s not that bad either. but yes, awareness of girls/ ladies about make-up is ltd to kohl and lipstick. i think, it’s more to do with the general lack of awareness and it being considered ‘distracting’ by parents/ elders in the family during school/ college days, and even after job/ marriage/ kids people pass nasty comments like ‘bahut heroine jaise sajti sawarti, hum to bhai ek lipstick/ kajal 4-5 yrs chalate hai’. I feel like hitting hard on such people, but resist for obvious reasons. πŸ˜‰

        • m doin ok…my entire week was crappy…my net stopped working on saturday itself…it got fixed just last evening…upar se such issues at work this week…irritating..feel like leaving everything and quitting! πŸ˜‰

    • It is na? I luv this shade alot! and I dint even hav t think b4 buying this bcoz of the price… πŸ™‚ Hav u ever used anythin from B&D?

  12. this is absolutely stunninggggggggggggg color and now i want it badly after the review and the killer liner Zara :-* :-* :kissed: :kissed: :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-*
    checked this post thrice but able to comment now …

    beech beech mein anmol was waking up .. came back again to tell you how beautiful the shade and the application is drop dead gorgeous babes πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  13. Zara such a beautiful shade .Do u know if faces or any such pencil liners r available in this shade even liquid liners will do i dont use gel liners they dry up pretty fast?

    • hey indrani…in pencil liners, faces has a green or teal shade which comes closest to this…and lakme alo has a shade in the glide on range but i dunno the shade name πŸ™
