all that glitters ♥




I can officially thank Bourjois for turning me into a sparkly eyeshadow lover - if you have been reading my blog over the years then you will know how simple I am with my eyeshadows - plain, matte brown to be specific. So when the lovely Bourjois team sent me the Smoky Stories Quad Eyeshadow Palette's* to try, I was really excited and curious to see how the glittery shades would look. There are eight different palette shades in the range, each palette contains three matte shades (with a slight pearl appearance) and a shimmery square in the middle. You could apply this to the inner corner of your eye or for a more dramatic appearance all over your eyelid. I've actually been dusting this on my cheekbones for a highlighter effect! As you can see from the photos, the three shades I have tried are 02 Over Rose (the pink shade), 05 Good Nude (the brown shade) and Rock this Khaki (the green shade). The pigmentation is incredible, I find the eyeshadows really easy to blend into the eye socket and the fall out is very little considering what glitter eyeshadows are usually like. My favourite has to be 05 Good Nude, purely because I am a fan of wearing brown shades everyday. I definitely recommend these palette's - especially using the glittery shade if you have any parties around the corner or if you fancy a new highlighter! What is your favourite shade? You can see the full range at Boots here. Let me know if you have tried the Smoky Stories range! 10/10

  1. Those colours are gorgeous! I think I like the pink or gold undertoned one the most! They would have been perfect for new years as they look like they'd create a really gorgeous smokey eye! Perfect for a makeup bag too as you wouldn't need to bring loads of shadows... ah I may have to add this to my 'wish list' now :)
