Bourjois Eyeshadow

Hey guys,

As i was shopping the other day, i tried to stay clear of the makeup section, trying to save some extra holiday cash but i couldnt help myself but to quickly have a look around for the perfect lilac/lavender/purple eyeshadow. Ive been looking for one for a while and none of them that i have purchased have been the perfect tone of purple until i found the Bourjois individual baked eyeshadow range, which i never knew actually existed because ive always thought that Bourjois is over priced. However when i saw this pretty colour i just had to get my hot little hands on it ! I got the shadow in number 72- ombre a paupieres.

When i got home i started to play around with it and i realised that the $28 price tag which was attached to it, did not necessarily mean super pigmentation or staying power. The first swipe of my finger across the shadow barely picked up anything and i had to really rub my finger in it to pick up some colour. So then i tried to use the shadow wet by slightly dampening a brush and then applying it onto my lid and that just caused it to crumble off and fall into my eye. I tried again with a primer first and then some shadow but even that didnt really work.

Ive come to the conclusion that im officially done with the Bourjois eyeshadow range, and im a little uoset that this pretty colour will be pushed to the back of the eyeshadow drawer because its really not a good shadow. Ive never tried the other eyeshadows by the same brand, maybe its just the baked ones that proved to be a dud ?!

Let me know your thoughts on these if you have tried them..

  1. i haven't tried the bourjois baked eyeshadow range yet but i'm not sure i would pay $28 if it's not pigmentated and doesn't last long...

  2. this is a gorgeous color- i've never tried this brand before!
