There are 22 shades and here are most of them swatched. There are 4 illuminating shades, 4 on trend shades, 8 sculpting shades and 6 glittery shades.
I attended a Bourjois blogger event on Saturday where we had the gorgeous Cassie Lomas demonstrate a couple of looks for us using the little round pot eye shadows. I will always attend the Bourjois events purely because of my love for 10hr sleep effect foundation. On another note, Cassie Lomas is launching her Makeup academy in Manchester which opens in January 2011. *Sigh* I wish it was in London, nevertheless I would love to do a weekend course with her.
We got to personally pick 8 little round pots from the 22 shades, here are the ones I chose...
I have swatched them dry and wet, some of them need to be wet to achieve more intensity but overall they are very pigmented. The only downside is some of the glitter shades get a little powdery, but nothing too annoying. I love all the shades I picked!
The paler shades!
The darker shades!
- 08 Beige rose delicate - The shimmery cream shade is the most pigmented and striking for me, it's great for all over the lid on it's own or a great highlight.
- 74 Brun profund with blue accents - The plummy brown shade which speaks for itself.
- 04 Noir precieux: with a purple tinge - The intense purple which leans towards black. The best way to use this one is wet as the metallic finish is so stunning.
Below I used 08 all over my lid and as a highlight, I used 04 wet as a liner and lightly dusted a bit of 93 in the crease.
Next on my Bourjois wishlist is the beautiful vintage packaging, I am hoping they will release a collection which goes back to their roots!
