Bourjous Paris Rendez a Paris: Limited Edition Vintage Bourjois Paris Eyeshadows Review and Swatches
Find yourself rendez-vous’ing in Paris with the limited edition Bourjois Paris Eyeshadows released to celebrate the brands birth place and source of inspiration for it’s collections.
Ahhh Paris the source of romance, glamour, and a city full of unforgettable love.
I have many a find Bourjois Paris Eye Shadow but none in my collection sport the sweet, vintage pots that the Bourjois Paris Rendez-vous a Paris does. The brand teamed up with artist, Natarie Rete, to celebrate it’s Parisian heritage and launched these brand new pots which feature a playful design or place to remind you of the beauty of Paris!
The formula on these shadows feels a tad different than the regular baked shadows I personally own. A bit more shimmery, a tad more pigmented, and alot more smoother is my impression. Perhaps along with the beautifully designed pots, Bourjois took the liberty to spice up the formula as well.
I’ve always been a grave lover of the shadows from Bourjois but I know some who complain they are a tad too difficult to work with because of the baked formula. I’ve personally never experienced such problems for myself but this formula and texture seems incredibly smoother with plenty of pigmentation to please.
I tried two shades Voilet Absolu and Argent.
Voilet Absolu is a true purple shade. Applied wet it turns into a midnight purple shade, ideal for a smoky eye. Applied dry it’s a truer shade of purple and beautiful for Spring.
Argent is a shimmery silver shade perfect for pairing up with black for a sparkly smoky eye look or in the inner corner of the eye to make eyes pop with a bit of silver.
Both shades feature the vintage illustrations on the pots, quite cute and highly collectible to me, a big Bourjois fan.
Lucky enough Ulta carries the entire range priced at $14 each. Yay!
