Learning to reduce my spending and try to just live with what I own and I have to say I own a lot!
Bourjois Smokey Eyes Palettes comes in three different set of 3, I only got two since the other one was sold out at the store I got them from. I only remember paying half the price they normally sell it for so I thought it was alright to give myself a treat.
|04 Nude Ingenu, 05 Rose Vintage|
The texture of the eyeshadows is smooth, but blending is such a pain that I would probably not use them much. You heard me right; I found blending the eyeshadow was harder than most drugstore eyeshadows. I know for a fact that it wasn’t because I wasn’t blending enough, I was blending like crazy but it just doesn’t really blend well at all.
Here are some swatches I did…
Top line is without any base or primer.
Second line is with Elf Mineral eyeshadow primer.
Third line is with NXY Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk.
