Bourjois Color Edition 24 hour cream eyeshadows* £6.99
out now in Boots

For Christmas 2013, Bourjois is enchanting us with the magic of winter tales and the illumination of crystallised snow and glistening ice. At the heart of this captivating collection is an assortment of new cream to powder eyeshadows housed in an updated version of Bourjois’ little round pots and with an iridescent, metallic finish for this season’s fresh take on the classic smokey eye.

I have been dabbling with three of the new shades in 03. Petale de Glace, 05. Prune Nocturne and 02. Or Desir (from left to right) and love the luminous, shimmering finish they give with a buildable level of colour. Initially the texture is quite tough and firm in the pots so it is best to soften the cream with your fingertips before applying it all over the eyelid. I used my fingers to roughly set the cream in place and then took a small fluffy brush to blend and define the eyeshadows together. True to their word, these shadows really are cream to powder and transform quickly once in contact with skin, but are still easy to work with and blend out nicely. I love the pearly finish that you get with all these little pots of shadow and they work great as a eyeshadow base too if you wanted to layer a more intense shade over the top. With a small angled brush, these would also be brilliant to line the lash line with or simply add a metallic flick of colour.

What are your thoughts of cream to powder shadows? Are you excited by these new releases from Bourjois?

    My friend sent me 03 these last week. I absolutely love it. I love the texture, I love that it's easy to apply with a brush or fingertip.
    It's not a colour I would usually go for but I was pleasantly surprised x

    I really want to try these. They look like a better colour range than the maybelline cream shadows. X

    03 and 05 are the most interesting and will looks amazing on green eyes! I think they are a perfect way to play with colour without being too daring! Definitely my kind of shade when I step away from my fail safe Naked pallet. Have a lovely weekend. x

    They look really pretty on you! Nice to have something a bit lighter in winter for a change!

    I also really love your tin…is it vintage? Love!

    I think the colours are lovely but I've never really used cream eyeshadows.

    These look really delicate and pretty…nothing too over the top.

    These colours are fab for this time of year when we all go for deeper colours!

    Those cream eye shadows look so nice! I have 2 Benefit ones that are similar colours but they're dried out quickly so I've been looking for some new shades (these are more more affordable, always a plus).

    These look so lovely – I love Prune Nocturne; I'm a sucker for cranberry shades! 🙂
    Your photos are so beautiful!
