Review: Bourjois Satin Edition 24h Eyeshadow (01 Beige-seller, 03 Mauve-your-body)

Bourjois is one of those drugstore brands that seems to have quality products. I still use their Healthy Mix Foundation, because it looks so natural on the skin and I absolutely adore Rouge Velvet The Lipsticks which have the best matte finish ever. Obviously, I was excited to try some more from them and than these Bourjois Satin Edition 24h Eyeshadows landed in my mail. 


These come in transparent plastic packaging that looks like their old Rouge Edition Velvet lipsticks. Top is plastic and colored to represent the shade inside.

It has doe foot applicator that holds enough product and it applies nicely, but you definitely need some additional blending. 

In it is 8 ml of product and it costs 10.29€


You can choose among 8 different colors and apparently satin and metallic finish. All the shades are very wearable. There are some brown nudes, greys, silvers and even some olive green. I really miss some warm tones in the collection. They all seem pretty neutral or cool toned. 

01 Beige-seller is neutral beige gold with a bit of warmth to the base and it has silver shimmer in it which gives it that satin silver sheen.

03 Mauve-your-body is cool mauve brown that also has a hint of greyness to it. It also contains small shimmer, but it's less visible in this shade and doesn't give it that sheen so it's more of a proper satin finish.


It's indeed a very lightweight and ultra creamy texture as they describe it. The cream is not too liquid, but it has a very smooth glide to it and you can apply it on with the applicator, but need additional brush or fingers to blend it out

It's a sheerer formula that can be build up, but you'll need to put some effort in doing so. My main problem is the sheer cream that gets sheerer as soon as you start to blend it. So it's better to pat it on heavier on those parts that you want more coverage and just lightly buff out the edges. I do about three coats to get very opaque look. Plus you need to wait in between each layer for it to dry down, which doesn't take long.


Once this sets on the lid, it doesn't move at all. It's actually very long lasting, but not waterproof. Because it's so creamy, you have to make sure that it dries down completely, before moving your lids too much (especially if you have hooded eyes), so that it doesn't gather in the crease. But once it's on, you can forget about it. It also doesn't noticeably fade through the day

I had a bit of problems with blending. Sometimes they set too quickly, if I applied lighter layer, and then it's harder to get that perfect blurred edge that you can get with powder eyeshadows.

I prefer to wear these eyeshadows on the lid only and I usually place some regular powder eyeshadow as a transition shade in the crease - mostly brown. This you'll see as my first look with each shade. On the second look, I applied only the eyeshadow all over the lid blended out of the crease as well.

Out of both these shades I actually prefer this one. It's more cool toned, but the purple hint in it just suits my eyes better. The beige gold one is too light and not enough warm for my liking.

I was a bit upset by the fact that I had to really make sure to apply them evenly and blend out as good as possible, but then again, I am not the biggest fan of creamy or even liquid eyeshadows. They tend to need more effort with application. That being said, these are very long lasting which surprised me. They also don't crease through the day nor fade noticeably. Shade selection is a bit boring for me personally, because I like some color or warmer tones, but it's very wearable which is a good thing for average customer. If you have the time to layer them for opaque look and want something that really lasts well without you checking it up through the day plus has wearable shades, then you'll definitely like these.

  1. Te tekoče senčke so amazing :D Sem pa tudi jaz imela nekaj težav pri nanašanju na začetku, tako kot praviš, začnejo se brisat če jih želiš bolj zablendat in izgleda weird. Ampak, ko se enkrat navadiš izgledajo čudovito :D

    1. Po kvaliteti so res dobre, ker se odlično primejo veke. Ampak sam proces nanašanja, to moram pa imet prav voljo :D. Končni izgled je res lep. Samo jaz bi še vedno neke bolj "moje" odtenke želela videt v kolekciji :). Nekaj bolj toplega in živahnega.
