Bourjois, all about beautiful eyes.If you’ve already acquired a sun-kissed face, you actually don’t need a lot of foundation, if any at all. Let’s go for a natural skin and focus on the eyes!
Palette Les Nudes by Bourjois is a handy eyeshadow compact with a rotating, panoramic mirror. It features seven shades with an iridescent finish, plus one matte in dark brown. They range from wearable pastels and more audacious copper and bronze, to flattering brown. The shimmer is quite soft and complements an everyday look, only the taupe (4th one in the row) has more sparkle to it. The cream-to powder formula goes on smoothly without any fall-out, which is a big plus, only the darkest color feels somewhat dry. These eyeshadows have a decent pigmentation, they blend well and are buildable. For more intensity, you can apply them with a moist brush. Bourjois claims a hold up to 12 hours, however, I found that too optimistic. Especially if you have oily eyelids, I would recommend a primer for a better staying power!
Bourjois Eye Primer 24H is a long lasting eye shadow base, that preps your eyelids. The universal shade 01 looks like a fair beige on the applicator. It goes on transparent and nicely mattifies the eyelids. The color of your eyeshadow is more pronounced, and it certainly will stay longer. I can’t confirm the 24h hold, but after 7 hours my eye-makeup still looked fresh and flawless.
Even for a natural daytime look, mascara is a bare necessity if you ask me. If applied right, it opens up the eyes and gives them more expression. Volume Reveal Adjustable Volume Mascara is the latest addition to Bourjois’ Volume Reveal Mascara range. What’s so different about this one, you might ask? Bourjois states it has been specially formulated so you can reapply it endlessly without any clumping, letting you build your lash volume to outrageous new levels! The formula is enriched with lash-nourishing waxes and the neoprene bristle brush glides along lashes, coating and volumizing them from root to tip. If your lashes are very short, you might find the brush somewhat thick. I applied three (!) layers of Volume Reveal Adjustable Volume Mascara without any clumping. This is a great mascara if you want a modest look during daytime and add flawless, extra drama in the evening. The tube even has a built-in magnifying mirror along one side, so you can easily pump up your lashes on the go.
