Whilst browsing through Priceline during their most recent sale, I noticed this Bourjois eyeshadow value pack. What immediately drew me to this value pack was that I actually haven't tried these eyeshadows before, but I have heard many good things about them. And what a better time to buy these than during a sale!
This value pack contains three eyeshadows that all complement each other and helps to create a wearable smokey-eye look. The back of the pack details steps on how to create the lovely look in three simple moves. I did use this smokey-eye method and I thought that it was a great way to achieve a smokey-eye look. It's extremely quick and simple and can be used on an everyday basis. It definitely simplifies the way to achieve a beautiful smokey-eye look.
The packaging of the individual eyeshadows are adorable. I love that the actual colour of the packaging matches with the eyeshadow shade that it holds. This makes looking for the right colour tremendously quick and easy. I have also seen the round pot eyeshadows with French inspired designs on them, which I absolutely love! Unfortunately, I haven't seen any of those in Australia though.
The little eyeshadow pot also includes a mirror and a tiny curved sponge applicator that fits right in. Honestly, I don't know why Bourjois has added the little sponge applicator as I find it's so tiny that it's really uncomfortable to use.
Now onto the actual eyeshadows. The value pack comes with three eyeshadows - a light (90), medium (08) and dark shade (74). I quite like the formulation of these eyeshadows, as they're very creamy and effortlessly glide onto the skin. I had assumed that the lightest shade (90) would be a little chalky and the colour would not appear on the skin. Fortunately, I was terribly wrong - all shades had amazing pigmentation and did not feel chalky at all. As I said before, I tried out the smokey-eye look using these shades and surprisingly they lasted for a good 6 hours before I removed them. I did find that both the light and medium shade were a little too shimmery for my liking. Also, I felt that they both did not complement my skin tone as much as other shades - I think these shades would suit more fairer skin tones. The darkest shade (74) however is a beautiful chocolate brown that definitely creates the perfect smokey look.
This value pack is retailing for $25 AUD in all Priceline stores, however as I bought this during a sale, I received an extra 20% off - making this value pack only $20. I thought this was such great value as one round pot eyeshadow retails for $16 AUD. I encourage all of you to try out the Bourjois round pot eyeshadows if you're willing to fork out $16 a pop, as they truly are amazing.
