Bourjois Colour Edition 24 Hour Cream to Powder Eyeshadows





As part of their Christmas Collection, Bourjois released a fresh take on this seasons smokey eye with their Colour Edition 24 Hour cream to powder eyeshadows. There are six shades to choose from, but I've found myself reaching most for the three used above: The Silver shade - Merveille d'Argent*, The Plum Purple (and my personal favourite) Prune Nocturne*, and finally Pétale de Glace* - a dusky rose with mauve undertones. For £6.99, these are a steal.

I love the luminous finish these cream shadows give off, and the fact that they dry to powder gives is a major plus in the longevity stakes (perhaps not for 24 hours) -  although I do suggest using a eyeshadow primer. I found these a bit rough to begin with and recommend warming up the product with your fingertips and smooth over your lids. You can build up the colour using a fluffy eyeshadow brush - I use my MAC 217. 

Above I have used Pétale de Glace all over the lid and then softly blended Prune Nocturne into the crease, with Merveille d'Argent as a highlight by my tear duct. For a more intense night time look, I'd suggest building Prune Nocturne up some more, or using these as a base before applying powder eyeshadow on top. Prune Nocturne is the stand out shade for me with flawless pigmentation, and also works well for a warmer smokey eye using the golden shade from the range, Or Désir

What are your thoughts on cream eyeshadows? Will you be picking these up?

  8. I want to try these so badly! Bourjois is unfortunately pretty limited where I live, so I haven't been able to get my hands on these, but I'm seriously lusting over that plum shade.

  13. I'm head over heals for Prune Noctern! I find they have such an odd consistency though, but that could be the testers in boots and superdrug being all dried out and manky....

  17. I'm a little scared of cream shadows, should i just bite the bullet and give them a go? I just have visions of all my eyeshadow pooling in the crease of my eyes come lunchtime... The metallic shades are second to none though!
