Sparkle with Bourjois

Tuesday, 23 November 2010

I never really use many Bourjois products. Despite being enchanted by their beautiful blushes and fabulously cute eye shadows, for some reason I've never really embraced Bourjois as a brand. I'm not entirely sure why. I think when I was younger I was a little put off by their prices; compared to my favourite 'drug-store' brands like 17 and Barry M, Bourjois seemed a tad pricey. Don't get me wrong, I have tried their blushes and bronzer before (their chocolate bronzer is fab) but I've never really thought of myself as a fan as such.

However, recently I've been more and more drawn to their products, in particular their eye shadows. What caught my eye recently, whilst perusing the make up stands in Boots (purely for their 3 for 2 offer) I spotted a couple of extremely SPARKLY eye shadows. Now, if you're like me, and love anything remotely glittery, then these will be right up your street. I didn't realise that Bourjois' cute 'Little Round Pot' eyeshadows came in a variety of finishes, and the one I had spotted was part of their glittery shades. I chose #13, a stunning glitter-filled plummy purple, but there are three other beautiful glittery creations. There's #7 (which I've not seen in the shop but looks amazing) a gorgeous glittery peach, #25, a dazzling glittery silver, and finally #92, a shimmering glittery black.

#13 is an absolutely stunning colour, which would be perfect for the party season, or just for anyone who loves a bit of sparkle. When dry, it is a beautiful sparkly purple but when applied wet it really amplifies and is much, much more striking. I definitely prefer it wet to dry.

I think this is a fab eye shadow and I recommend trying out Bourjois' glittery Little Round Pot eye shadows if you haven't already. It's £5.99 and looks great all over the lid or in the outer corner, with a paler purple or a shimmery gold all over the lid.

Are any of you fans of Bourjois? Have you tried the glittery Little Round Pot shadows?
