Blue Eyeshadow Look – Featuring Bourjois Colour Edition 24H Eyeshadow

So I thought I’d try something new with today’s post – this is the first makeup look I have EVER done (so bear with me if it’s terrible!).

Blue eyeshadow is something that I have always had in my makeup bag since I was about 5 years old. (Wait what?) Yeah, I started ballet classes when I was 3 and have danced ever since (although it has taken a backseat since I’ve been at uni), and for all performances and competitions we had to have the brightest, shimmeriest blue eyeshadow that we could find. Hence I have a strong affinity for using blue on my eyes to this day!

I recently bought a new blue eyeshadow (as my old ones had been thrown out after the last show), and I got Bourjois Colour Edition 24H in Bleu Ténébreux for £6.99.

The eyeshadow is very creamy and smooth (not a powder) – very similar to Maybelline Colour Tattoo. I don’t have any of the Maybelline eyeshadows, but I decided on this as I love Bourjois other products and thought I’d give it a go.

The swatch came out very dark, and you can’t really see the shimmer that it has – it’s a very different colour to what I’m used to, but I love it. It is a bit of a pain to get off as it sticks to the skin, although eye-makeup remover does clean it off quickly.

The only negative thing that I would say about the eyeshadow is that it was difficult to use my brushes with it; the creamy texture made it hard to get the right amount on the brush, but I will still use it as I love the colour and the effect it gives.

Here is the look that I created:

cropped-blue-open cropped-blue-closed

As you can see, it looks much more blue once it’s on the eyes, and I love the effect it gives.

I’ve really enjoyed doing something slightly different for this post. Let me know what you think, and whether you’ve used any of these products!

Hope you guys have a beautiful day,
