Bourjois Color Edition 24H Eyeshadow Review

Eyeshadow is one of my favourite parts of applying my make up, so when I was picking up my weekly food shop in Tesco's the other week; I decided to head over to the make up aisle and treat myself to a couple of season appropriate shades.

After browsing a couple of stands I stumbled across the Bourjois Color Edition 24 hour cream to powder eyeshadows. I spent a little while swatching the testers but they had ran out of the shades that took my fancy so I decided to give the eyeshadow treat a miss.

The next day my boyfriend and I went to a carboot sale and you will not believe my luck... There they were, three never before opened, brand new Bourjois eyeshadows all in the colours I had wanted! I asked the lady at the stand how much she wanted for them and she said that I could have the lot for £5 - SCORE!!!! 

So I know, enough about how they came to be in my possession on to what I think!

All of the colours in the collection are absolutely gorgeous and I think they will suit most skin tones. The shades I went for are Or Desir (gold) Petale de Glace (silver) and Prune Nocturne (plum)

They are simple to apply and as easy as a cream eyeshadow to blend but dry to a powder finish. I found the best way to apply them is by using your fingers, I first tried with a brush but the darker shade seemed to look a little patchy.

The lighter shades I've found work wonderfully as a highlight, not only on the brow bone and tear duct area but also on the cheek bones - This is super handy as it saves valuable space in my make up bag!

The biggest let down for me is the pigmentation. I find that you really have to build the shadow up to get a good colour pay off which can be annoying when I'm in a rush and need to get my eyeshadow on quickly. Also the packaging is plastic so it feels quite cheap and flimsy.

I'm still on the fence about these and to be honest I'm kind of glad that I didn't have to pay the full £6.99 price tag per pot. Especially when their rival the Maybelline Colour Tattoo's are a couple of pounds cheaper and I personally prefer them to these.

Let me know in the comments if you've tried these eyeshadows and what you thought of them?
