Just landed into my make up bag are a couple of these rather lovely eyeshadow crayons - the new 'Colorband' crayons from Bourjois*.
I tend to reserve lipsticks for special occasions and go through phases of wearing winged eyeliner, but one thing that remains constant in my make up routine is a good blended eyeshadow. I'm a big fan of eyeshadow palettes (this one's still my all time favourite!) but haven't before found an eye crayon that I got on with. I tend to find they drag, are really hard to blend, crease or appear greasy. That was, at least, until I tried Bourjois' latest eye crayon creation.
The Colorband crayon's formula is waterproof, smudge proof and, quite frankly, idiot proof: they're so easy to use it'd be almost impossible to mess up. The shades effortlessly blend together on application, so there's no need to use your finger to work the colours into each other. Once applied, they feel a little waxy to the touch, which means the colour will not budge. There's no chance of slipping, rubbing off or creasing with these - once applied, the waterproof pigments have 24 hour hold.
The creamy texture makes for a silky application, and is what makes the shades so easily blendable. There are six complimentary shades to mix and match together - black, grey, brown, nude, rose, and mauve. Each of the colours have a subtle shimmery finish to them. I have the shades 02 Brun Dadaiste, which I applied to the crease and outer corner of my lids and along the lash line, and 04 Rose Fauviste which I applied to the rest of my eyelid to create a natural, soft, romantic look.
Do you like using eyeshadow crayons or prefer power? Have you tried any of the other colours in the Bourjois Colorband range?
