Bourjois Pretty Paris Eyeshadow review and FOTD

Hello lovelies,

I've decided to call it a day on foundation fortnight - sorry that I didn't do quite as many foundation reviews as I'd hoped to... I've lost a bit of my blogging mojo recently and just wasn't really feeling it! Anyway, I thought I'd go back to basics and treat you to a little FOTD and also show you the two beautiful Bourjois eyeshadows I picked up from their Pretty Paris Collection.

The first is a beautiful soft lemon yellow (it reminds me of great quality ice cream) called Citron Givre

This is beautiful base colour and blends gorgeously with the other colour from this collection. The colour in the picture is slightly lighter than in real life (sorry!). This gives a sheer wash of colour, although a stronger colour payoff can be achieved if you foil it. Personally I like keeping it subtle. I think that this colour would be a gorgeous highlighter as well as it has a hint of shimmer.

The second is a lovely gold infused brown called Tabac Blond:

This colour creates a really pretty neutral look when blended with Citron Givre, but could also be used for a much more dramatic evening look! I have to say that one of the most lovely things about this range is definitely the packaging - what a gorgeous design! As with all Bourjois eyeshadows, these two have a lovely soft velvety texture and excellent staying power!

These are availiable from Boots and Superdrug and cost £5.99 each (although at the time time writing, they're currently part of a 2 for £10 offer in both Boots and Superdrug as well!)

And finally, my FOTD:


  1. Oh I think I need that yellow in my life!

  2. YOu really do! It's beautiful (I'm possibly slightly biased as I seem to be addicted to yellow eyeshadows at the moment, but this is a gorgeous one!)

  3. The packaging on those shadows is so cute! I'd love to have a couple of those in my collection :)
    Love your FOTD, it's beautiful!

  4. Beautiful packaging and I really like the second eyeshadow!! :) nice FOTD, you look so cute! :)
