Get a alternative smoky eyes with Bourjois Smoky Eyes Mordore Chic palette

The Hype
This sophisticated Bourjois Smokey Eyes palette has 3 shades in 1 for a easy to recreate sophisticated smokey eye. The palette uses a ultra fine powder that is silky, easy to use and lasts for 8 hours. Available in 12 shades from girly Rose Vintage to the more traditional Gris Party you will find every smoky eye you could ever dream of recreating.

The Lowdown
As a twist on the classic smoky eye Mordore Chic boycotts the traditional black/grey palette in favour for beige and browns. I’m quite used to seeing the dark grey/black smoky eye so it was quite refreshing to try something a bit different.

To create this look I took these steps:


  1. Sculpt the dark shade over the lid
  2. Blend and stretch the medium shade over the arch of your brow but leave a small section under your eyebrow
  3. Finally use the gold shade to illuminate the eye area


Whilst the shades appear quite dark in the palette once applied the two lighter shades actually have a lot of gold in them. As the eyeshadow is baked it’s quite hard to get the transfer of the colour onto your eyes. The best way to apply would be to use a sponge applicator as they are the best at packing on colour. The shades have quite a light effect and I really like the chocolate mix. The gold shade adds something a little bit different that gives it more of a lighter effect.

Overall a nice look that is perfect for a casual ‘no effort’ look.

I give it 4/5
