Bourjois Intense Extrait Eye Shadow-08

Hi Girls!! :)

Today review is on Bourjois Intense Extrait Eye Shadow-08 which is my new found love. I have won this in Corallista Makeup Blog's First Anniversary Giveaway. This was sponsored by :). And i would want to Thank Ankita & Chetana for the amazing Gift!! :)

What the product Claims: (From an e-shopping website)

  • Our iconic eyeshadows have been women’s beauty favourite for almost 150 years.
  • The formula is manufactured using Bourjois’ unique baking process for radiant colour, silky textures and perfect blending.
  • Intense is made up from mineral pigments.It is hypoallergenic, paraben- and fragrance-free and suitable for contact lens wearers.
  • It lasts for up to 16 hours. 

Price: Rs.465/- for 1g

My opinions on the product:

I am in love with this product. I really liked the packaging. It comes in a cute packaging with a mirror inside. It has a magnetic lock to close. The color of the packaging is same as the eye shadow. It does not come with any applicator or a brush. The shade 08 is a beautiful brown with gold shimmers. The shimmers are very fine and gives a nice pearl finish. I love the shade. It is beautifully pigmented. One swipe actually builds up the color and is sufficient for the entire lid. The part is that the intensity can be built by using it wet. I do not own a eye shadow primer yet I did not find this creasing on my lid. Also I am very impressed with the Staying power. It stayed well for almost 6 hours without a primer beneath. Over all I am very happy with this and surely look forward to try more shades.

Swatches : 

  •  Very beautiful packaging and also comes with a mirror.
  •  Great shade selection.
  •   It’s a beautiful brown shade with a golden shimmer(which is not at all OTT but adds beauty)
  •  Amazingly pigmented. (Even without a primer)
  •  A little goes a long way. You can actually finish the entire lip with a single swipe
  •  The intensity can be built by using it wet.
  •   The texture is very fine and soft
  •    Lasts long on me decently for 6 hours  (Without a primer)
  •   Did not crease on me.
  •  Its made from mineral pigments.It is hypoallergenic, paraben and fragrance free and suitable for contact lens wearers.
  • No fall out.

  •  Expensive for 1g, (But I am sure it will last long.)
  • Availability might be an issue
