After falling in love with Bourjois Noir Emeraude (review here), I went a little Bourjois-crazy and bought two other colours, a gorgeous purple shimmery one (this one) and a silver shimmery one called Bourjois Gris Paillettes (review here) This was also my first ever purple eye shadow and I thought the colour when applied with a damp brush was outstanding. It’s a rich purple with loads of silver sparkles, and no, not micro sparkles, sparkles you can actually see, and no, you don’t have to look too closely. I mean, it’s not gigantic sparkles, but you get my drift. When used without a damp brush, a light black-purple colour emerges with very understated shimmer – really lovely.

The last of my Bourjois obsession – Boujois Little Round Pot in Gris Paillettes is a silver-foxed eye shadow is simply to die for. When applied with a damp brush, the silver sparkle really stands out (more so than in the other Bourjois eye shadows I have) and adds to the muted grey tones of the eye shadow adding to the overall finish. The final product is a smoky silver eye shadow with oodles of visible sparkle. When used with a normal brush, a light grey colour emerges with small hints of silver specks. Bourjois have certainly pulled out all the (bling) stops with this eye shadow colour.

Use this lovely eyeshadow with a nude lipstick or lipgloss – I promise it will look perfect.  If you really want to look ooh-la-la, then perhaps a slick of red gloss or lipstick will finish your look.

I bought this Bourjois Little Round Pot in Noir Emeraude, as I didn’t have any green eye shadow and I have a really pretty gold dress at home I wanted to use. I caught sight of someone who paired green eye shadow with a gold top. I initially gasped at the vast difference in colour, but after staring at this poor girl who looked like she had done something so wrong that this stranger was eyeballing her for ages, I realized that the colours worked and didn’t clash as much as I thought they might, in fact, both played off each other so well. The green she had on, was a darkish, almost pale black.

The very next working day – I trotted down to MAC – after all, they have one of the biggest, if not the biggest collection of eye shadow shades I’ve ever seen. I was disappointed as none of the green floated my boat and didn’t really match the colour I had in my head. Off I went with a heavy heart – aha! Boots! My saving grace. Looked around a little bit when I found the perfect shade, Boujois Little Round Pot in Noir Emeraude. Roughly translated I think that means ‘Black Emerald’ – which is exactly what I was looking for, a glorious shade of dark green. When used on its own, it’s a much lighter version of itself and perfect for the day time BUT by night, dampen your brush with the tiniest bit of water and I mean tiniest, and watch this colour transform into the colour it was born to be. A rich, dark green shade with the smallest hints of green-gold glitter shimmer. Just Divine.
