bourjois-24-hr-eyeshadow

Round pots make me happy. Not like poo-poo pots, but cute little tubs, like lip balm tubs, or little jars of honey or this Bourjois Color Edition 24 HR Cream eyeshadow which not only makes me happy because of its round pot-ness because seriously it is my new favourite makeup item !

Basically, for people like me who are not big believers in eye makeup this is like a godsend. You just apply it all over your lid for one of the prettiest, brightened up eyes. The color is actually a deep olive green but it has these gorgeous glistening gold flecks which looks super flattering against my brown eyes. Infact iv worn this twice and every time people asked me how pretty my eyeshadow was !!! It is effortlessly…swipe, apply , done, repeat.

The shadow is pigmented but you can control how much of the shadow you want on your lid. One light swipe for pretty shimmeryness with some color and 2-3 swipes for some olive green on the eyes. Basically think of these like Maybelline Color Tattoo eyeshadows but I kind of like them better- they have a cream to powder finish and are much easier to blend because they become like powder shadows once applied.

You can layer these on for higher wear time, alone they give you about 6 !

Look and tutorial coming soon!

Pros:

  • ¬†Easy to blend
  • Pigmented and can control the level of pigment
  • Non creasing
  • Long lasting

Cons:

  • Ermm cant think of any at the moment i guess

Verdict: A

Price: Rs I think these would be priced around 500 mark (They are a new launch)

Recommendation: The Bourjois Color Edition 24 hour Cream to Powder eyeshadows are awesome. The colors are stunning and the sublte shimmer in the metallic finish makes for brighter, sparkly eyes! If you an eyeshadow novice you would probably want to stock up on these!

The color is pure gorgeousness. The price is a bit of shocker as I do not expect anything to be priced lower than 800 from them now. I really do hope its around the 500 mark only :p
