Last week I popped into Priceline on my lunch break and saw a new stand from Bourjois. It was so new that there weren't any prices there!!
In the range they had some nail polish, lip crayons, cream eyeshadows and a new mascara.
I ended picking 3 products from the new range.
They had testers out, and I adored the lip products so I picked up both of them as well as 1 eyeshadow.
There are 6 shades available in the UK of the Colour Edition 24H Eyeshadow, but only 3 available here in Australia. We have the whitish silver, a pale pink champagne and a dark blue. See the 6 colours here. They all have a metallic sheen.
Not being familiar with its performance I just picked up the pink one as I thought I would reach for this more than the other 2 colours. .
The packaging is very similar to the Maybelline Colour Tattoo's (black lid, clear glass top).
It's a cream formula that's supposed to turn into a powder.
I've found depending on the light, it sometimes seems more pink or has shades of a light brown.
While I love the colour, the formula has been a let down.
While it was easy to apply and seemed to "set" easily (although not in powder form) I found it did wear within 4-6 hours and it did crease, so I can safely say that it doesn't live up to the 24hr claim.
I'm yet to try it out with a primer or to set it with a powder eyeshadow, but honestly at $20 I wouldn't expect that I would need to. Because of that I won't be picking up the other colours, even though they are beautiful.
On a positive note, I did like the feeling of the eyeshadow. It didn't feel wet or heavy and was very easy to apply.
I'll be posting about the lip products in a separate post.
