Bourjois ~ Smoky Eyes Trio & Pencil Reviews + New Launches

Some of you must be thinking "What's with this girl and Bourjois?!!" 
But what can I do? My heart herts  Bourjois. Have a look see at the new stuff I got. They are fabulous. Must-haves, you-have-to-buy, I'll-save-next-month, beauties. Believe me.

Smoky Eyes Trio (Rs.625)

Violet Romantic & Nude Ingenue

How cute is the sponge applicator! ^.^

These eyeshadow trios are so cute!!! I've waited so long to get my hands on them and they're so worth the wait. The finish is gorgeous. Pigmented and buildable. I can also tote these little babies around especially on those days when I don't have time to apply at home.
I got Violet Romantic 06 and Nude Ingenue 04 . I picked these two trios because both have the colors which are not in my BF 120 palette.


Effet Smoky Pencils (Rs.325)

These are the best eye pencils. EVER! Available in 5 shades ~ Intense Black 75, Grey Shadow 74, Deep Green 73, Dark Purple 72, Smoked Brown 71.
I got 3 shades because I love them so much!
Top to bottom ~ Smoked Brown, Dark Purple, Deep Green


Half smudged with the brush

Basically, you draw with the pencil and smudge with the brush to create smoky eyes. The liner is very smooth but smudge-proof, and the brush is soft enough to blend with till there are no harsh edges. I think they are decently priced too at Rs.325.
I'd rate them ~ 4.9/5


New Launches

Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation & Correcting Concealer

These have a mixture of fruits as ingredients. Apricot for radiance, Melon for hydration/moisturizing, Apple - antioxidant, Ginger for refreshing (or energy? I'm not sure.) Yum... yum. Do you think we'll end up licking our faces? If that's the case, wouldn't it be great for Valentine's Day? ^_~
The foundation comes in 7 shades and the concealer in 3 shades.
Can't. Wait.

♥ Cynthia Z ^.^

  5. Wow!!! i have to get the pencils now and they are so affordable. Me too love my trios. :)

    I found the applicator cute but didn't find it very useful. If you find a way to make some use out of them, do let me know. :)

  17. @Sarah...Never used UD so I don't know. But by looking at the UD 24/7 I think that they might be creamier than the Bourjois ones

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
