Bourjois Colour Edition Eye Shadows

Creme-to-shadow eyeshadows are a fairly rare thing. When I first saw these I thought they would be along a similar vein to the Maybelline Colour Tattoo ones, but I was wrong. These are much drier and certainly (as they say) a real creme-to-powder formula. The only products I've come across that are similar to these are the Chanel Illusion Ombre eyeshadows (which is unsurprising considering Bourgois and Chanel are made by the same people) But these have less of a 'whipped' texture, and feel quite firm to the touch.
The colour payoff is nice. It's not outstanding, but...
more than adequate for everyday wear. All of the shades are shimmery and I actually really like their choice of colours (there are no dodgy brights!) The only colour I don't think I would wear is the navy. The red and green shades are really interesting and I think they make a nice addition because they are colourful but still very wearable.
L-R: Bleu Tenebreaux, Plum Nocturne, Kaki Cheri, Petale de Glace, Or Desir,  Marveille L'argent
I found that these applied best using my rounded synthetic blending brush from Crown. They do work when applied with the fingers but I found the brush to work better at blending them.
These claim to be '24 hour' shadows. I'm not sure about the '24 hour' obsession in the makeup industry at the moment, as I don't think anyone would want their makeup on for 24 hours anyway... BUT I'm also unconvinced these would last that long anyway. With a primer, they'll last all day and they don't crease, but they aren't the longest lasting products out there and if used alone I found they started to fade after about 6 hours (though still did not crease). On the plus side, this means that they aren't a pig to remove at the end of the day like some others are.
Overall, I'm really impressed by these. They are launching this month priced at £6.99 each.

  6. These look interesting! I've been liking the Bourjois releases over the past while.. The only thing is that the colour range isn't amazing, I could only see myself wearing the second last bronzy shade.. x

  16. I'm right there with you - I really don't understand the hype about "24 hour lasting products." The first thing I think of when I see that is, "oh great, that will never come off" and then I usually move on!

  17. Oh nice!! I want the green one:)

    ReplyDelete
  18. I wouldn't wear the silver and I already have colours really similar to the bronze, pink and navy from maybelline. But I do think the red and green are really nice and I'll probably get the green one since I don't have any colours like that.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I don't think I would wear the navy, red and green colours because they don't really look good on me, but they're gorgeous. Let's hope they're released in Spain soon.

  25. My favorite out of all those is probably the Petale de Glace and the Plummy shade. My first thoughts were that they would be like the Maybelline Color Tattoos too. Wonderfully informative post!

  34. These look rather good, and the colours are so wearable too! I too question the need to label things as '24 Hour'... who keeps their makeup on for so long for one, and secondly, I've never met a product which has been able to last over twelve, no matter how amazing their claims are, so we shall see...

  35. These look lovely, especially the neutral shades (:

  40. The packaging kind of looks like the Colour Tattoos. The colour choices are gorgeous, though. They're more "grown-up"/wearable than a lot of similar prducts. I hope we get them here in Canada, since we do HAVE Bourjois, just not as much selection as in Europe.

    ReplyDelete
  41. These look really interesting! I've never tried these, as I've always been a fan of the Maybelline Colour Tattoos, but really want to give these a go! :) X.

  45. Plum Nocturne, Or Desir and Petale de Glace are my favourites so far - how cute are the names?! They look like stunning shades that can be built up easily, which I don't find with the Color Tattoos - sometimes they are too pigmented for a subtle day to day look! Definitely going pick one of these up to try :)

  46. These shadows are impeccable. I wish I could try them. I need to find Bourjois products because all of my favorite gurus are raving over their lines recently! Or Desir looks amazing! I have to say I'm partial to bronzey copper shades at the moment. Great for fall!

  47. My favorite are probably the red and green. They both seem like colors you could wear on the lid but like your could also place some on your lower lash line for that little pop of color if you're less adventurous

  56. These look really lovely! I particularly like the plummy colour and the gold - perfect autumnal colours. I don't get the 24 hour thing either! I have a mascara which claims to be 24 hours and it literally does not come off at the end of the day! Who wants that?! Safe to say, I only wear it on days where i desperately don't want my make up going anywhere. 10 hours is fine, thank you very much! xx

  72. These look like they are worth giving a try, maybe with the more neutral shades though, I too doubt many people would get a lot of use out of the navy!
