Bourjois 'Smoky Eyes' Eye Shadow Trio - 01 Gris Dandy!

You may or may not have realised that I haven’t blogged in a few days so just in case you were wondering, it’s mostly because I went to London and was not organised enough to schedule posts for the days I was away (I’ve also been trying to organise my birthday celebrations, 30 on Monday – eek), but also because I fell over whilst in London so have been mostly sat away from the computer with my foot up, although I do still suspect I’ve broken or fractured it.

Anyway, now I’ve waffled on about all that I really want to show you some swatches of the Bourjois Smoky Eyes Trio that I got on Wednesday whilst in London. I really love this little set; it was an instant hit with me as I do love a smoky eye, and these silvery/deep grey/gunmetal colours really are perfect to create fabulous smoky eye looks - which, incidentally there is a guide for on the bottom of the pot - always handy!

It’s also a set that I would happily take on a short trip away as it would be a brilliant space saver in my bag(s) which is great for me as I fail (constantly) at travelling light. Apparently these last 8 hours on the eye, something I've not had the chance to put to the test yet.

They're baked shadows and I've swatched them both wet and dry (labelled in the first photo), but I think that they apply (and look) much better when wet (in terms of pigmentation) which is pretty standard with most baked eye shadows anyway! I've also tried to show the swatches when reflecting the light differently; they're actually quite metallic in some lights, which I love.

These are available in 6 other colour variations, all of which look equally as lovely (and hopefully many of which will also make their way to my makeup bag) and cost around £7.50 each, which I think is very reasonable for 3 eye shadows.
