Bourjois Colour Edition 24H Eyeshadow

The trouble with a lot of creamy eyeshadows is they tend to slighter of the skin in (almost) the blink of an eye. But once you've seamlessly blended this creamy, shimmering formulation into skin, it won't budget till you take it off with remover, later.  (Maybe not 24 hours - heaven forfend you should fall into bed with your shadow on, anyway! - but a good 12 hours.)

The shades are really lustrous and beautiful:  rich metallics - good for lids (a touch of shimmer really opens up the eye), but remember:  not for the eye socket if you're over above, oh, thirteen years old.  Beige Constellation can also be used for brows, and the Noir Cosmique shade (a deep smokey, sheen-y black) is very intriguing used under the eye, then lined and mascara-ed.

Our fingers crossed are that the shades currently available (six) are just the beginning...
