Bourjois eyeshadows

 Helloooo Guys :)
Okay so a while ago (and I mean a while!) I did  a Bourjois haul and I did say I would review the eyeshadows and the mascara. If you would like to read the mascara review click here and If you would like to have a peek at the haul click here  :) The haul was like in 2011! and I thought I posted this but apparently not -_- sorry!

So the first three eyeshadows are from their fairly new line called intense extrait. They claim that the eyeshadows would have the staying power of 16 hours but I only wore these for about 9 hours and it stayed till then which is pretty good if you may ask me.



I got three in the shades 01, 03 and 05.




I use this gold shade on top of any eye look I have done, just like gold glitter. This is the most prettiest gold I have bought yet. Its not the kind of a gold that has a yellow undertone but more of a subtle matte gold with glitter. Its a really pretty shade! I even blend it with my highlighter at times. And yes it does lasts on my eyelids for a long time when used with a primer. They claim that the eyeshadows would have the staying power of 16 hours but I only wore these for about 9 hours and it stayed till then.



The texture of this peach/pink is also the same as the gold one and works exactly the same as the gold one. This is just so subtle. I actually once dusted this on my eyelids in daytime and I got alot of compliments :)
The colour payoff again is really nice.






This green is absolutely gorgeous! I fell in love with this colour. Its such a deep green and the colour pigmentation is great too. I love using this as an 'under' kind of a colour and then building up other colours on top of this one. 









This is not from their intense extrait line but just the normal one. Its in number 02 and is a very subtle (when applied) turquoise. I do have to say that its one of those colours that you need to build up and I find the least pigmented. 
But very pretty!

So am sorry this is so late but I actually though I posted this but I found this in my drafts -__- I am so cleaver!

Hope you liked this!
Let me know what you think :)
