Absolutely in love with this eyeshadow pots because the formula is stunning. The powder is super fine and very easy to blend out with minimal fall outs. The eyeshadow is very pigmented so a little goes a very long way. I love the fact that I can apply the eyeshadow with my fingers when in hurry and still looks good. I would apply eye primer as a base for the eyeshadow to last longer.
This eyeshadow is great! I like that it comes conveniently packed in a little round pot, very similar to their blush! It each one has a mirror so you can apply it on the go or if you want to touch up throughout the day. The product opens and closes with a magnetic clasp which is perfect for when you're traveling or storing it in your handbag as it won't spill. It is a baked, powder eyeshadow but the product is so soft and light to the touch. You can either use your fingers or an eyeshadow brush to apply it. Either one works fine. The colour is quite nice and fairly pigmented however you can always add more of the powder to make it more pigmented. The colour I had was very shimmery which was nice especially for an evening look. The eyeshadow blends easily and I like that it doesn't crease either. This eyeshadow powder will last for a very long time and there are eight shades you can choose from!
I love these eyeshadows! I have three; a dark navy blue, a pearly pink and a white shade. The shadow is housed in a small round pot, with a sponge applicator included, and incorporates a small mirror into the lid and a clasp which closes firmly - no spillage or leaking, and so convenient and portable. The texture of the powder is lovely; light, soft and smooth and easy to blend. The colours are shimmery without being too sparkly or glittery, and the shadows can be used dry, or applied with a damp applicator for extra intensity. The darker colours can also be used as a long lasting eyeliner; just apply with a thin, damp brush. A very good quality product at a very affordable price.
This bourjois eyeshadow is one of the prettiest eye shadows you can buy. I have these little pots in several colours and love them so much. They look pretty and the little pots are convenient in my bag and does not spill. the little mirror in the compact is perfect for checking if I need a touch up. The colour is shimmery and intense and these little pots last for ages. This eyeshadow does not crease or slide off my face. Even the scent of these little eyeshadow pots is pretty, its a really glamorous product to use and for the price seems to last forever. If you purchase one of these eyeshadows it will quickly become your favourite
Yesterday I received an amazing Bourjois prize pack from Beautycrew and I just couldn't hold myself I had to try at least one product. I opted for this cute round pot of shadow. I am familiar with some Bourjois products and I did have a smokey eye trio sometime in the past but I never had a chance to use their single eyeshadows.
The packaging is really cute, a little round pot, mine is a beige shade with tiny golden glitter sparkles all over. The formula is beautiful cream to powder- and it does feel creamy, finely milled and extremely light on the eyelid.It applies easily, blends easily too- when worn on its own it gives the most amazing intense wash of colour or it can be paired up with other shades- for example the shade I have got ORIGINALE 03 which is a gorgeous beige with tons of tiny sparkles, will go well with some matte beige too. Originale is an ideal shade for everyday to match up with a touch of a black mascara and some red lips for some French chic. It brightens and lightens the eye. The whole eye area looks awake and fresh.
The tiny glitter particles do not look cheap at all, they look classy and they add that luminosity to to the whole eye look. Every time the sun/light hits this area, the shadow sparkles. It is great to wear on its own in summer or to a big night. A great shadow, it stayed put on my lids all day long ( with the shadow primer).
I had picked up this eyeshadow in Generose which is exactly the same colour as shown in the stock photo. It is a light, iridescent shimmery gold that accentuated my olive complexion while also brightening my eyes. I wanted an eyeshadow that was basic enough for everyday but still nice enough to be used in conjunction with other colours if I wanted to quickly transform to a nighttime look. The eyeshadow comes in a round pot with a magnetic clasp, ensuring there is no spillage or mess! It has the added feature of a mirror which is great for when you are travelling or touching up on the go. The colour is pigmented and buildable, depending on how dramatic of a look you are going for. You can either use your fingers or an eyeshadow brush and the colour blends smoothly. The eyeshadow can be used either wet or dry and I found that the colour lasts all day. As someone who has oily eyelids, my eyeshadows tend to crease or start to fade away after awhile. The powder formula of the eyeshadow helps keep my eyelids matte, allowing it to last longer and look great for most of the day. I would still recommend using an eyeshadow primer though as it always helps prevent creasing and allows the eyeshadow to adhere to your eyelids much better. In addition to using it as an eyeshadow, I had put a little bit in the corner of my eyes for a brightening effect and give my look that extra step! I also couldn't help but try it out as a highlighter. I used a fan brush and applied a bit to the highest point of my cheeks and it looked amazing! It had that strobing effect with the shimmer, giving a wonderful glow. I even put a bit on my cupids bow to accentuate my lips and underneath my brow bones to make my eyebrows pop. I am very happy with the results and now I am keen on trying out all the other colours as well!
Tip: If you want a more pigmented look, try wetting your eyeshadow brush for a deeper colour
I have used this eye shadow in silver and it is wonderful. It is very pigmented and the silver colour really pops on my light skin tone. The great thing with this eye shadow is that you don't have to use a lot of the product to get good colour on your eyelids so the eye shadow will last for a long time!
I have not tried any of the other colours but the silver is shimmery, long lasting and looks amazing.
The Bourjois little round pot in #08 (Beige) is one of the most hard working products in my collection. Not only is it beautiful as an eyeshadow, but is also the perfect colour to use as an illuminator. It is the only product that I use every single day and it has a permanent spot in my travel bag as it is the perfect multi-purpose product.
As a woman with hooded eyes and being closer to 50 than 40, my eyeshadow preference is a matte finish. Whilst mattes are more forgiving on my older eyes, I find that adding a little of the Bourjois little round pot eyeshadow in #08 in the centre of my eyelid adds extra definition which really opens up my eyes. I also add a little to the inner corner of my eyes to brighten my eyes and make me look more awake.
Once I have finished my eyes I use a small fluffy brush to add a little to the high points of my cheeks and just under my brow bone. I have also been known to dab a little onto the top of my matte lipstick in the centre of my lip to add a little depth and dimension to my lip.
I have been using my current little round pot every day for more than 3 years and it is not even half used so it is not only a fabulous multi use product, it is extremely great value for money. I highly recommend you add this to your makeup collection - you can thank me later!
This is one of my all-time favourite products. This eye-shadow from Bourjois has been a beauty staple for many years. My mum had this exact product over 20 years ago which i still have today and while the new product is very slightly different (the older pots didn't have a magnetic clasp), it has retained the same look, feel and quality. It smells virtually the same as it used to, it's a delicious powdery/floral scent! It goes on smoothly with the rounded brush that's included in the pot. It lasts a long time and can be use wet or dry. I have the beautiful subtle pink shade and it also doubles as a blush. I love that Bourjois kept this product for so long, these are great long-lasting eye-shadows!
