Bourjois Intense Eyeshadows 03, 10 Review, Swatches

Made from 87% mineral pigments, precisely measured and selected, INTENSE is highly concentrated for 2 x more coverage than a classic eyeshadow in one single application. Hypoallergenic, paraben- and fragrance-free and suitable for contact lens wearers.
Available in a wide range of 10 exclusive shades and suitable for all occasions and styles:-
The essential shades, to illuminate and sculpt the eyes (01, 02, 03, 09, 10)
The dramatic shades to intensify the eyes (04, 05, 06, 07, 08)

Packaging ~ Has really improved. In addition to the little pressable silver button, the pots are also magnetic. They close better and are less likely to get spoiled- like the old version. They are also thinner, hence fits better in your palm.

  • Bourjois Intense Extrait Eyeshadow 03 (sand rose) ~ This is so very pretty! I swatched it once and I knew I had to get it, I think it's such a fabulous color. The only downside is, like most glittery eyeshadows, it doesn't stay put & major fallout problem. However, it's a different story when it's applied with a wet brush- it clings better to the lids. I'm guessing it will work well with Inglot Duraline too.

Bourjois Intense Eyeshadow 03 Swatches (dark & light)

  • Bourjois Intense Extrait Eyeshadow 10 (charcoal black) ~  One of the most pigmented, smooth and long-lasting black eyeshadows out there. It's matte, which makes it even more usable. It is even better than Stiletto from Too Faced Naked Eye Palette

Bourjois Intense Eyeshadow 10 Swatches (dark & light)

I've posted this EOTD of me wearing both shades a few days back (post here). 03 looks better off camera.

Overall, Bourjois Intense Eyeshadows are awesome! Matching colored pots are uber cute, high quality eyeshadows, paraben-free...totally worth 410 bucks! Yes, now I want ALL the shades ;)  (I wish they all came in a palette though)

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
