Bourjois Regard Paillete Glitter Pencil Review

December 9, 2006

When I saw the new Bourjois Regard Paillete Glitter Pencil on display at Boots, I just could not resist! The pencil comes in 4 gorgeous colors – black, baby blue, teal and brown – all packed with silver glitter. I ended up bring home the black one, Noir Ă©blouissant 31, since I just ran out of black eyeliner.


Initially, I was a little worried that the silver glitter would be too much for the day but I wore this to work and it showed up a really pretty shimmery charcoal with just the right amount of sparkle. The liner also glided right on with no tugging. It stayed on really well and I only had to reline my lower lashes after a whole day of work.

Definitely a keeper and I hope Bourjois will come out with more colors!

* This product has only been released in Europe and Japan.

    Only in the UK and Japan, aw. Do you know of any other alternatives that are available in the US? I’d love to try a shimmery version of my usual black liner that I wear everyday.

    Are you officially in London, now and not in IL anymore? I thought London was just a vacation.. how cool!!

    pressed powders are used mostly for touchups (hence the little compact) and they tend to provide a heavier coverage. loose powders are used for setting makeup.

    And yes, Mikal, I am officially in London now *lol* Do I know you by any chance?

    LOL, no you don’t know me.. Haha. (Does this sound super freaky?? Haha). I just know you lived in IL before b/c I ordered the five samples of MAC pigments from you (fab, by the way).

    And then you mentioned you were in London — but I didn’t know that you are there officially. That is so awesome.. *sigh* I wish.

    Hi, was wondering what you think of the DHC Q10 eye cream. my current so-so eye cream is running out and am looking for a replacement. preferably something that helps with dark circles and tightening…

    Hmm… this product has been out in Singapore for quite a while~~!
    If I am not wrong…there are 2 variations to it:
    – The glitter type
    – The shimmery type.

    Hi Carol, the DHC Q10 eye cream is very moisturizing and good for wrinkles but I don’t think it does much for undereye circles or puffiness.

    Liz, you might want to try the glitter eye pencils from Hard Candy or Tony & Tina.

    Can u use the glitter eye pencil for ur water lines?

    • Reply Phyllis March 16, 2007 at 11:49 am

      I do use it on the inner rim. The glitter isn’t too chunky so it won’t hurt your eye but it doesn’t stay on as well as MAC Fluidline.
