Lipsticks and lip glosses are what we usually like to buy and use on our lips. Another substitute to lipstick known as lip pencil can also be used to color the lips. Lip pencils not only are used to define the lips or to make a boundary for lipstick or lip gloss but they can also be used as a substitute of lipstick itself. Today's post is on Bourjois Khol and contour pencil.

I have not seen this pencil being sold officially by the Bourjois counters in cosmetic shops or departmental stores however I got mine from Chanel store in Liberty Market for Rs. 900. Its a 1.14 gms pencil in Rose wine - 13. Its not a normal sized pencil rather a thick broad one for which a broader sharpener is required. It comes capped with a silver cap.

The pencil is quite pigmented. The swatch on the left shows the true color of the pencil with a single swipe. The right swatch on the other hand is a builded one with 3 swipes of the pencil. The pencil is truly matte.

I personally do not use the pencil without a clear lip gloss because I like glossy moisturized lips. Due to the matte nature of the pencil it lasts really long, it can easily stay up to 6 hours on the lips. With a gloss topping it, the gloss wears off after some time but the pencil stays put. I really like the lilac pink color it brings on to the lips, looks different from the normal, everyday pinks. Before applying this pencil, one needs to make sure the lips are not dry or chappy because that will highlight the flakiness over the lips and may cause trouble while applying on to the lips. So make sure your lips are moisturized and not cracked. Using a Vaseline or lip butter might help before the application of the pencil. I rate it 4.5/5 for its color, quality and staying power.
- You want something long lasting
- You like matte lips
- You like more control over the application of lip products
- You find it expensive
- You have dry chapped lips
- Do not like matte lips
- Not a big fan of lip pencils

We, most of the times rely on a foundation or a pancake to do whole of the job by covering our dark spots, blemishes, uneven skin tone and whatever shortfall there is to our skin. But isn't it too much to ask from a single product? How about making the job slightly easier for the foundation? How??? Read further to find out your answer.

Here is another haul post for you to enjoy. I had no plan to buy any of this stuff at all but when I went to this shop and saw all these beautiful items I just could not resist the temptation to buy them. Plus the prices were so reasonable it became impossible to oppose buying. So here is what I got.
Sorry for my long absence and I am putting the entire blame on my landline. I use PTCL broadband and due to road construction the telephones have been dead for like over a week now. No use of complaining, been doing it everyday ever since and nothing achieved. I am using internet from work, can access blogger but no access to Facebook (thanks to the abusers who misused the facility at work and now its ban). I can not access my page so I am letting you know here that I am alive and will be doing more posts but won't be able to access Facebook. If you have any queries you can email me on my Yahoo address. Another thing, keep taking part in the Neutrogena giveaway being held at Sadeestyle blog and as promised I will start the BH giveaway as soon as my internet is up and I get to access my Facebook page.
Lets start on with the post. For the very first time, finally, I managed to get some Urban Decay products and I am really really excited to try them out. I am sharing my haul post with you to let you know what I purchased.
I am starting a new segment in my blog named as Empties. In these posts I'll be featuring the products which I have finished using in (a) particular month(s). Also some of the products may follow a short review as well just to give you an idea what my experience has been like while using those products. So lets start.
I have the issue of being unable to stick to one shampoo for long. If I am using a shampoo that suits me and I keep on using it for a few months there comes a time when my hair get bored of it and they tend to start falling or become flaky or lifeless. So I need to keep on switching my shampoos from time to time in order to maintain my hair's interest. I know this must be the weirdest thing you might have heard. But seriously my hair have a mood of their own and I now dread my hair throwing a tantrum on me :x What shampoo have I recently been using? Read more to find out.
