Bourjois Mega Liner Ultra Black
Purchased item today, only to find on opening that it had begun to dry up. No crisp black line, just a faint grey smudgy mess.
Have lost my bill so don't know if Boots will will exchange this.
Not sure if it was just from a bad batch or a customer has opened it .... i wish people wouldn't do this!!!!!

Holy grail eyeliner!
This is my HG liner, I absolutely love it! I rarely write reviews but I felt really compelled to do one for the Bourjois Mega Liner (Ultra Black) because I'm on my 3rd one by now and still love it. It's a mid-range liner with a tip a bit like the end of a highlighter pen or a marker, making it really easy to do a cat eye, thick liner or thin liner on the upper lid. I can even get away with using a little on my lower lid as well if I'm going for a bolder look. I normally pick mine up whenever I go to Boots, it's Â£7.49 and I usually get it on a 3 for 2 deal with the Healthy Mix foundation and normally something else that's new from Bourjois.
The colour really is blackest black and lasts all day on my eyelids. I have skin that one day will be dry and flaky, another will be like an oil slick, but this seems to be no problem for this liner. I can't say I've ever worn it for the 24hrs it's advertised to last for, but I don't see why it shouldn't. I have kept it on for a full day of work then a night out clubbing and it lasted fine, though. No smudging unless you're intent on rubbing your eyes or hopping in the shower with it on!
Overall a great liner. Really nice gold and black packaging too. Only downside is it is a little pricey but I'm more than willing to pay, especially if I'm getting it on the 3 for 2. It also can dry up if you don't click the lid back on properly, but that's the case with most pen eyeliners anyway. Mine usually lasts me about 4 months of daily use!
