When it comes to new make up collections, it seems that Bourjois can do no wrong. Normally I'm all about the lips and cheeks but this Spring it was the Colorband eyeshadow and liners which caught my eye. I've been on the lookout for an eyeshadow to keep in my handbag, something which I can use on the go and these coloured little crayons fit the bill perfectly:
Available in 6 shades, the new Bourjois Colorband eyeshadow and liners are so quick and easy to apply. To use I simply draw straight onto the eyelids, blend with my fingers and I'm good to go. There's no need for any make up brushes and the slim crayons perfect for carrying in my handbag. They can be used as eyeliners too, but I'd say that unless you're going for more of a smokey look I'd stick to just using these as cream eyeshadows.
At £5.99 each I think these are seriously good value. Quite a few bloggers have compared them to By Terry ombre blackstars and although I've yet to try the ombre blackstars these are creamy, pigmented, and all surprisingly neutral and wearable too. Like a lot of cream eyeshadows, once dried they're completely waterproof and won't budge till the evening. In fact I had to really scrub with a micellar water to remove the swatches from my arm although thankfully they seem to dissolve quite easily on contact with a balm cleanser.
Overall I think the Bourjois Colorbands are a great new addition, especially if you want something quick and easy to use on the go. Of the 4 shades shown above, my favourite has to be 05 Mauve baroque although looking at some of the swatches online, I think I need 03 Beige minimaliste in my life too!
