There’s just something about French cosmetics that’s alluring and intriguing. Smart French women use products from the Bourjois line. Coincidentally, Bourjois is created in the same factory as Chanel’s makeup line – meaning the products and packaging might be different, but the quality is similar.
I was drawn to the Bourjois display at my local Ulta (also available at Sephora) because there was row after row of brightly colored, cute little pots of color. I picked through pot after pot of eye shadow, easily knowing what color I was picking up because the outside package is the same color as what’s inside!
I decided to create an evening look and chose Effet Lumiere in Argents #46, a trio of white, silver and gunmetal shadows. My smudgy, sexy look-at-me eyes lasted all night, no smudging or wearing off. The shadows contain a slight amount of shimmer to them which made my eyes glow- and not in that Vegas show girl kind of way. Everything in the product range is well priced- around $15 average – so I feel like I’m getting my money’s worth and then some.
