Bourjois Smoky Stories Eyeshadow Palettes

Prime, shadow, define and highlight with Bourjois’ new Smoky Stories Eyeshadow palettes available in eight smouldering shades. Last year it was all about Bourjois’ trio of eyeshadows for quick and simple smoky eyes but now they have upped their game and added another shadow into their handy little palettes, with the lightest shade boasting an integrated base primer to prolong colour for up to 12 hours hold.

The Bourjois Smoky Stories Eyeshadow Palettes* (£7.99) available from Boots have a lovely cream to powder texture with a buildable intensity for a new, arty version of smoky eyes. The three harmonious shades in each palette come with the Light Touch, a new generation integrated top coat that contains co-ordinated glitter for a subtle shimmer and illumination. The glittery shade can be applied as a solid layer all over the eyeshadow base to complete your sparkly, smoky look or alternatively can be used to add shimmer and highlight in the corner of your eye, along your brow bone or at the roots of the lashes for a flash of sparkle. I am always a fan of eyeshadow palettes that have everything you need at your fingertips to prime, shadow and highlight. The texture of each shadow is smooth, easy to blend out and gives an lovely, even result on your eyelids and the base primer provides a unified base shadow for your darker colours to cling to. The sparkly top coat is such a fun addition as well and makes a great little highlighter or glitter top coat to take you from day to night!

    These look beautiful! Definitely going to pick one up next time I'm in Boots (wish I'd seen this post earlier as I've literally just got back from there!)
