Only reason i wouldnt repurchase is because i got this as a gift from bourjois paris, and i have tons of other eyeshadows that i still didnt try out. Lets get to the review: Beautiful colour, texture is silky and smooth. You can use it dry/wet, BUT i dont suggest you use it wet all over the product, because the surface might become hard after. So use one half side for wet use, and the other for when you wanna use it dry.
This product & colour rights all the wrongs in this world of ours!!
Honestly, its the most perfect piece of makeup I own....
The colour is a creamy, neutral with a slight shimmer that can be used alone or as a base or subtle highlighter.
Application is easy, smooth & trouble-free.
Of all the Bourjois colours, this is definitely on top of my list of must-haves.
Excellent, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Can't begin to tell you how many times I've gone back to this. Beautiful silky application, a great all over base colour. Even after a big night, one sweep of this over your lids makes you look human again. Love love.
This must be my favourite single eyeshadow ever!
- The colour is a beautiful creamy beige, almost the colour of my skin (NC10-15), minus the shimmer of course. The shimmer is lovely and not glittery at all. Perfect base colour for an everyday look and it looks amazing as an inner corner highlight.
- It goes on nicely and it's easy to blend. I have no problem picking this up with a brush at all.
- I LOVE using this wet. You can easily use it dry after, because it's a baked eyeshadow. The colour comes out much more intense, it so so pretty!
- I also use this as a face highlighter. It looks lovely on my cheeks and cupids bow.
-The packaging is cute, but it's bit bulky. I wish I could depot these and put them in a palette.
Love this eyeshadow, I use it almost every day. The colour is beautiful and so versatile. Would definitely repurchase it!
My favorite base eye color. Very silky, smooth, neat and have very subtle lustre. The color is as the name describes: beige rose. Very good for a base or simply just use it to brighten your eyelids. Some other Bourjois single eyeshadow is not this silky. This one is a gem. I will definitely repurchase it.
This eyeshadow has won a permanent place in both my makeup bag and my heart. I adore champagne colours and this is a true pearly, light champagne colour. It is right in between metallic and shimmery, so it reflects light without being obvious. It's not foil-like as it can be with some metallic eyeshadows and it isn't disco ball-ish like shimmery ones. It's really subtle, like I'm hardly wearing any eye colour at all but brings light and life to my eyes at the same time. It harmonizes so beautifully with my skin (NC-15). It's especially gorgeous with incandescent lighting. My sisters asks me all the time what I'm wearing and I always tell them it is this one.
It is baked really hard, so I use a soft sponge applicator (not the one it came with, but that one works fine too - I just lost it). It applies beautifully. Don't use a brush, it will be useless as the brush won't be able to pick up anything.
The packaging is nice. I had no trouble opening it at all and it came with a mirror inside. A plus to having it baked so hard is that it never shatters when I drop it.
My eyelids are oily, so it does crease on my inner eyelids, but I attribute that to my eyelids, not this eyeshadow. It also works extremely well as a highlighter for your cheeks or nose. When I wear other eye colours (which is usually unlikely because I love this one so much), I will either blend it with a darker colour in my crease or wear it as a base. I feel like I can't go out without it because it makes me look so good and natural!
It was very expensive though - $17 CAD for one eyeshadow pot at Shopper's Drug Mart. But it has last me for two years now and still going strong. It is flat and no longer a rounded dome because I use it so often, but there's plenty left for still another year, I'm sure. So the price can be justified. You get what you pay for and I will definitely repurchase!
My sister asked me again today what eyeshadow I was wearing! I'm pretty sure you can guess which one, but it just goes to show ;)
I love this eyeshadow. It is a nice, subtle neutral that looks polished without looking too made-up. It lasts well and doesn't crease. It's a great day time eyeshadow or for work.
It isn't shimmery or glittery but it has a sheeny, pearly quality to it that makes it less boring. I use the sponge applicator it comes with for this one.
I love the packaging - little round pots rule!
You get a good amount for your money and it should last you for ages.
I don't use this as eyeshadow, I use this as a face highlighter and it's perfect not too over the top glittery (I'm looking at you NARS Albatross) just a lovely pearly glow, all round win in my book
Can't say I liked this one too much. It was too shimmery for my liking. I was hoping to use it as a brow highlight but it just doesn't look good on me. Works okay when using it in the inner corner of my eye. Very good pigmentation though and formula is very smooth and soft.
Highly pigmented which is kind rare for this brand. I own several of them but find out the limited edition ones has more pigmentation than normal range. The powder is fine and color is elegant. I use it as the highlighter. With eye primer, no crease and staying power is strong. Overall a nice choice.
