Bourjois Smoky Stories eye shadow palette in Grey-zy in Love



Bourjois has released a special collection of makeup for Christmas, themed Night Lights in Paris.  The collection consists of a shimmer version of their famed Java powder (which I really want to try),  a scarlet hued Rouge Edition Velvet and two Smokey Stories eye shadow compacts.


I was sent Grey-zy in Love, a collection of eye shadows with gold, charcoal and silver hues and a glittery eye cream (in the the middle).  The eyeshadows are inspired by the way Paris rooftops look during the night.

As you can see the shades are very shimmery but without the gritty texture that some shimmer /glitter eyeshadows have.  The pigmentation is quite good (for the price range) and there’s very less fallout (the silver shade is the biggest culprit! ). But since these are quite shimmery, I think it’s best worn with a primer or a glitter guard.


The wearing time (without a primer) is around 3 hours on my oily lids. And by then some of the shimmer had migrated around my eyes.  

If you are looking for an affordable set of shimmery eyeshadows to wear for the festive season try these out.  The other compact from the range contains a collection of bronze, matte black and blue eyeshadows and looks very pretty!

Thank you so much for reading and have a great week ahead!
