bourjois smoky eyes trio

I purchased the Bourjois 'Smoky Eyes' trio in '09 lady vert de gris' the other day as I was after some neutral shades without forking out a load of money. The trio has the perfect shades to create either a smoky eye or a simple daytime look. The highlight and dark shade are really well pigmented but unfortunately for some reason the medium shade doesn't apply very well. It may be more to do with a dodgy batch rather than the actual product as it just seems to be really hard to get colour pay off from it, and I had to really rub my finger into it to get any colour unlike the other two. However I still would recommend buying this palette as the other two colours are gorgeous and easy to work with. The highlight colour is my favourite out of the trio as it has the best finish of any that I've used before and I like to use it on the inner corner of my eye. The eye shadow trios also come in a range of great different shades so it's worth checking those ones out too.

  1. I've been looking for eyeshadow colours like this, it's a shame I'm on a spending ban! Will have to remember this (or maybe cheat and buy it soon!)
