Bourjois launch a fabulous new range of eyeshadow palettes: Smoky Stories Upside Down review

The Gloss
Bourjois have launched a fabulous new range of cream to powder eyeshadow palettes. The new range of 8 shades use a new formula which is integrated with a base shadow primer that works with the powder. Each palette include four shades with a top coat that uses highly concentrated faceted glitter.

Shades available include:

  • Grey and Night
  • Over Rose
  • I Love Blue
  • Rock Khaki
  • Good Nude
  • Upside Down
  • In Mauve
  • Ocean Obsession

The Lowdown
The new palettes are very different to what we’ve come to expect from Bourjois and it’s evident that Bourjois are moving towards more sophisticated formulas. Whilst the little round pots had a dusty, dry feel the new palettes are soft and creamy with dense pigmentation. Each of the palettes are well coordinated and the glitter lets you add a little sparkle to the overall look.

Upside Brown is a lovely menage of brown tones and a creamy shimmery champagne/gold topcoat. The formula is really versatile and can be used for both everyday and built up to be more intense for evening wear. The shades work really well together and blend seamlessly. As always you can wear the shades as they are or use a wet brush to get a even more intense look.

I think it’s great how Bourjois are embracing new formulas that are versatile and easy to use. I give it 4/5
