Review : Bourjois Color Edition Eyeshadow

I picked up this 'Bourjois Color Edition' eye shadow back in October. I'd seen it reviewed on quite a few blogs and thought it would be the perfect a/w shadow. I'd never tried a cream eyeshadow before so I was intrigued. I know the 'Maybelline' tattoo ones are incredibly popular and my friend raves about them all the time so I figured I may as well give this a go.
I'm a sucker for those deep berry shades. Lipsticks. Need I say more. But i've never gone for an eyeshadow. If you don't work it right you could end up looking like you have an eye infection or something. Not cute. This one is in the shade 'Prune Noctrune' and is no where near as intense on the eye as I thought it would be. I found it to be quite buildable and I really liked how I could apply just the slightest bit and create the most subtle smokey eye for a day time look. Likewise, the heavier I pressed the brush the more color pay off I got.
The product claims to go from 'cream to powder' and I found it stuck to it's word. It applied like a cream but nearly as soon as it hit my eye lid it resembled more of a powder. I liked this and I think it contributed heavily to the lasting power of this shadow. It only began to crease about 6/7hours of application which wasn't too bad without any primer underneath.
I will say that although this eyeshadow is slightly shimmered, the shimmer didn't transfer to the lid which was a let down if I'm honest.
Overall, I really liked this eyeshadow and I'm already looking at buying another one.
I have since bought one of the 'Maybelline' tattoo ones and I'm eager to see how it measures up. In the above picture is a smokey eye I created using 'prune noctrune'. Apologies for the low quality.
