If you read my post last week, I talked about the Bourjois Smoky Eyes Trio Eye Shadow in Vintage Rose. Whilst looking at the vast selection they had, I was also tempted into buying Nude Ingenu and Moredore Chic. I love my neutral shadows and couldn’t decided between the two so due to the low price, I ended up getting them both.
Packaging: Just like the Vintage Rose palette, these eye shadow trios come in a 4.5g circular palette each with a partly see-through lid that opens upright and clicks securely into place. In addition to the three shades per palette is a standard double ended eye shadow applicator that generally I never really bother to use as I prefer using my own eye brushes.
Shades: As you can see, these are both based on brown and golden shades which I just love. I think they look great on all eye colours and really make blue and green eyes pop! The one on the left, Nude Ingenu has brown shades that are darker and more cool toned, whereas, Moredore Chic, on the right, has more warm toned shades that are softer and lighter.
Texture: In both palettes, the eye shadows are super soft and smooth that can be applied easily without much fall out. These too aren’t extremely pigmented, but are just right for a soft day make up look.
Application: Each palette is designed to be used as a set to create a smoky eye look. So it is recommended that the lightest shade be used as a highlighter on the brow bone, and/or in the inner corer of the eye; the middle shade on the base of the eye, and the darker shade in the crease and/or outer V of the eye.
Cost: These sell for around €10.90 online (including shipping) so are quite affordable.
Verdict: I quite like these as they give a pretty, soft make up look. As they are not very harsh, it’s easy to pull off a well put together eye make up look, and doesn’t really allow for much error. The shades are very flattering and hard to go wrong with and will complement most skin tones.
