bourjois color edition 24hr eyeshadow - prune nocturne

One of the things that I love about autumn is the colours that come around. As much as I love the brights of spring and summer, there really is something about the deep plums and cherry colours that seem to appear at this time. I think it must be the fact that these colours remind me that christmas is just around the corner.

It's this time of year that I usually take my makeup a shade darker too so thought I would try Bourjois Color Edition eyeshadow in Prune Nocturne.

Prune Nocturne comes across as a powdery chocolate colour with plum and gold sparkles in it. The sparkles aren't very obvious they just create a nice tonal sheen which is almost metallic. The colour comes across a bit sheer to start, so does need a few layers to get a bit of a bolder shade.

The texture of this is so different, it feels creamy to touch but dries in a powdery form. I must admit I didn't really know what to expect with the texture but I found this buildable and really easy to work with. I found this easier to apply with my finger initally and then layer it up with a brush, just because I don't feel that it gives enough depth to start with using a brush. The good thing about the powdery finish, is that it doesn't crease so sits like a powder formula would.

I can't help comparing this to the maybelline color tattoo pots although they do not feel as creamy to touch. The packaging is pretty similar though, just not as heavy. The wear time on this, as I find with most Bourjois products is really good. It lasted on me a whole day on work without even budging which is pretty amazing.

This is a perfect autumnal colour and I can't wait to play around using this as a darker tint to a gold smokey eye. I am really impressed with this and will definitely be purchasing more shades.

These color edition eyeshadows are available from Boots and Superdrug too and are included in the 3 for 2 offers on both sites!
