Bharat and Dorris Cream Eyeliner

If you live in Pune then you must have been to Phoenix mall. I mean even my mom in law who never goes to malls has been there. Well, while wandering around we came across a makeup store named Bharat and Dorris with some weird wigs there. I knew I had heard the name before so when I came back I searched on the net and it was then that I came across the website of the famous makeup artists.

I quickly checked the product section and was fascinated by the wide array of makeup products which included some great things like the T zone mattifier (I guess it would be a boon for all oily and combination skin girls) and a brush cleansing spray. Among the makeup products I loved the sound of the cream eyeliners, the flat eye smoker pencils and the eyeshadow base in a range of colors. Moreover the prices seemed too good to be true, so I decided I would I go into the store as well and check this out.

The B&D store in Phoenix mall is not too flashy or attractive. In fact most of us would miss it if not for the colorful wigs. Anyways I came across these amazing cream liners in the store and fell for them head over heels. I mean there is a gorgeous array of colors and it is decently priced at just around INR 390. I m immediately picked up one eggplant purple cream liner in shade no 14.

Price: Price of this product is super. 5g of product for just Rs. 390. It’s a bit pricier then the Maybelline Gel liner but you have to see the gorgeous colors they have. Moreover they are quite reasonable as compared to other colored gel liners like Inglot and MAC.

It looks more blue in the pic but it actually purple
Product Claim:

Ultra-smooth, cream gel formula provides the precision of a liquid liner with a silkier, softer finish. Goes on “foolproof” with a brush in an easy dip-and-stroke action. Long-wearing. Smudge-proof. Lines up in a rich array of colours and finishes. Brush sold separately

Texture and Pigmentation

The texture of the liner is smooth and creamy. I was skeptical about this because the testers at the store had dried up and I literally had to scrape off the product. Anyways when I got home and checked I found out that the liner is extremely creamy and glides on quite well. It is not as smooth as the Maybelline gel liner or the MAC fluidlines but then it is a cream liner and I did not expect it to work this well

The pigmentation of this product is to die for. One swipe is enough for a nice color. Moreover the liner does not smudge easily and dries up quite fast. The color intensity does fade after some time but it still stays quite vibrant

What Do I Not Like

  • It has no name. No 14 is such as lame name for such a nice product 
  • It is not sold with a brush. By the way B&D has a range of amazing makeup brushes and really nice brush rolls as well.
  • Bharat and Dorris is not easily available. I think it is available only in Mumbai and Pune.
  • The website stocks only a black cream eyeliner I guess..That is so sad. Such a lovely product should be made available for everyone
  • It will dry up so have to keep a duraline handy. 
Everyone should have one of these beauties. Highly recommended. As for me I am going to stock up on these and get a whole lot of other things from B&D including the amazing makeup brushes and the beautiful eyeshadows.
