  • New from Bourjois: Smoky Stories Palette

    I just got word that Bourjois launched a brand new smoky eye, eye shadow palette and it looks absolutely gorgeous. This new arty version of smokey eyes features a topcoat eye shadow with highly concentrated faceted glitter as well as a cream-powder texture with an integrated base shadow primer. The eyes shadow lasts up to 12 hours thanks to the integrated base and blends really well because of it’s cream-powder texture

    The palette includes 3 perfectly matched colours to create a beautiful smokey eye, added to this is Light Touch, a new-generation integrated top coat. This transparent veil that contains coordinated glitter gives a soft light touch to the smoky look and illuminates while preserving its colour.

    Included as well with this palette is a dual ended applicator with a foam side to blend light and medium shades and a flocked side that allows precise outlining for the darker shade to create an eyeliner effect

     Here is a tip straight from Bourjois:  “Apply the topcoat as a solid layer over the eyelids for a finely glittery smoky eye, or in small touches  on key areas: the inner corner of the eye for light, the arch to open the eyes, the centre of the eyelids to make the iris sparkle, at the roots  of the lashes for a flash of shimmer…”

    How to use the new Smoky Stories Palette, step by step:

    Smoky Stories Palette, New from Bourjois: Smoky Stories Palette, Absolutely Life, Absolutely Life

    1. Prime – Apply the lighter shade just under the arch, to unify and enhance the eyelids
    2. Shadow – Apply the medium shade on the mobile eyelids to intensify the look
    3. Define – Apply the dark shade at the roots of the lashes to underline the look
    4. Highlight – Apply the Light Touch in a solid layer as a topcoat for a delicate glittery smoky look, or in small touches, depending on your mood.

    The Smoky Stories palette is available in 4 quartets for all eye colours, day and night.
