Review: Bourjois intense eyeshadow in 05

I bought some eyeshadows from Bourjois a while back, but was yet to try them until now. I am a big fan of bourjois eyeshadows already because they are generally highly pigmented, and this one didn't disappoint.
This is the intense style in shade 05, which is a deep green colour, one of my favourite shades. 
The packaging is simple, but effective with a snap button on the bottom that helps it stay shut. Inside the top lid is a handy mirror to touch up on the go. The colour is a dark green as I said, but has a bit of a gold undertone to it warming it up. I may be a little biased though as this is one of my go-to shades for a smoky eye for a night out, if I don't want to go for a typical brown colour.
The eyeshadow is really easy to apply, and you don't need too much product on your brush to build up the colour. Take it easy and build it up slowly. I would recommend wearing a good primer under it to help keep it in place.
The swatch below is from one swipe with my fingers. I couldn't find my brush at the time, but it does show how much colour you get from one stroke.
Let me know what you think. Have you tried this colour or any from the range? And what do you think of them?


  1. I love green eyeshadows but I don't have many deep green ones mine all seem to be emerald green. I might have to try this one out :)

  2. I'm a little addicted to dark green ones! I think they go well with brown eyes. Would definitely recommend this one. x
