REVIEW: Bourjois Colourband Eyeshadow Pencils

04, 05, 02
Bourjois have some great new launches this month and I thought I'd share as I'm seriously impressed, first up are these Colourband Eyeshadow Pencils. So many brands now product these type of shadow pencils and by far my favourites are the Charlotte Tilbury Eye Chamelon pencils however their price means I'm unlikely to purchase them all.

Bourjois' offering into this market make me happy, the colours are all lovely and very wearable, my favourites of course being the bronze (02) and champagne pink (04) and these mixed together and you're onto a winner for everyday easy makeup. There is also a black which you can use as an eyeliner as well as a shadow (I didn't think an eye swatch was necessary), a gorgeous lilac (05) which will be perfect for the spring and on the waterline if you've got green eyes.

If you're looking for a reliable, inexpensive and long lasting formula these certainly tick all those boxes, I've worn them on their own and as eyeshadow bases and they really last all day (I'm talking 8am until 9pm). I'm glad Bourjois joined the pencil eyeliner bandwagon and also I'm glad they took their time with it because they've nailed the texture, formulation and shade range instead of rushing and releasing a substandard product. I highly recommend these for those of us who enjoy quick easy makeup that requires minimum fuss for everyday wear.

They are priced at £5.99 each (Link) which means unless Charlotte Tilbury release a completely 'oh my god I HAVE to have this shade' shade I will be purchasing the Bourjois Colourband pencils as they do just as good a job at a fraction of the price.
