Forgive me for I have sinned, I actually bought this eyeshadow when it launched around late June,
took the photos and never got around to blogging about it.
However as it very much feels like Autumn where I currently reside I have been using it
on almost a daily basis and after a quick jaunt to a few Boots and Superdrug stores
to confirm it is still available I thought I should share what I deem the perfect Autumn/Fall bronze shade.
I do adore Bourjois packaging when it comes to their blushes and eyeshadows,
cute little round pots that are colour matched to the shade contained within
and a dinky little mirror to boot!
I have no complaints or anything else to really add other than that as the formula is baked
in both instances a bump or two on your daily travels presents no problems for this style of packaging.
There is numerous shades of eyeshadows within the Bourjois Little Round Pot Eyeshadow range
but the one that caught my eye is an orange based bronze which is shade 16.
Shade 16 is a deep rich warm orange that has a slight metallic finish which does give it a bronze finish,
the beauty of Bourjois Little Round Pots of eyeshadow is that you can wear them both wet or dry
depending on the finish and intensiveness of colour you desire.
Did you know that Bourjois has been around for 150 years and are mineral based
while being paraben free? No, me neither but it is good to know.
Anyway I do find the formula of Bourjois Little Round Pot Eyeshadow's too be quite dry in formula
but they are well pigemeted even without wetting but once wet they do offer more colour pay off.
As the eyeshadows are baked they are firm to the touch but I do find them to pick up well on a brush,
blend well and have next to none product fall out, however over the course of a few weeks they do
tend to grow firmer in consistancy and can be difficult to use.
To solve this problem you do have to remove the top layer which is fairly straight forward
but a complete waste of product - I use a small, clean patch of sandpaper and gently shave off the top layer.
Anyway that aside the formula is great for sensitive eyes and wears really well working with
my oily lids rather than against it with up to 10 hours of wear when primed with ease.
