Bourjois Effet Lumiere Trio Les Bruns Culvres 41 review,swatches & EOTD

???????????????????????????????

???????????????????????????????

I got this trio as a gift from Bourjois on purchase of rs.1500 I guess but I am must say,it is a very pretty and handy product and great for those who love neutral smoky looks.

???????????????????????????????

PRICE: I am not sure aobut the price as this product is dscontinued but still available as freebies.It must be around rs.500-600 for 3.5 gms!!

???????????????????????????????

PACKAGING: The effect lumiere has a same shade plastic packaging like i have golden shades so the packaging is golden.A small sponge applicator is also provided that comes handy in application at times.

???????????????????????????????

???????????????????????????????

The shade name and number are provided at the back of the packaging.The eyeshadows are in the oval shape divided into three.

???????????????????????????????

SHADES: The three shades present are shimmery  with a lighter champagne shade that is quite chalky and has fallout but looks beautiful as a brow highlighter.The second shade is a velvety light golden with a bit of shimmer.

???????????????????????????????

It look great when used all over the lids.The third shade is a chocolaty brown with shimmer.It is great shade for crease.

???????????????????????????????

TEXTURE,FINISH & STAYING POWER: The texture of the eyeshadows is smooth.They have fallout but not too much.Also,you need to layer on the shade at least 2-3 times to get full colour on lids else a single swipe will have a sheer coverage and only shimmer is visible. The first shade feels a bit chalky but comes out beautifully on lids.

???????????????????????????????

They are not highly pigmented but need 2-3 swipes as said.Also,the shades blend well with each other and come out with a beautiful everyday wear look.

???????????????????????????????

It might lessen a bit but a good primer underneath may help in staying power.

So,we have another shade from Elle 18 colorpop range today..:

???????????????????????????????

PRICE: rs.100 for 4.3 ml.

???????????????????????????????

PACKAGING: The lipsticks have a simple no fuzz packaging with a black outer casing and the shade name and number is provided at the bottom.It becomes difficult at times to get the desired shade from vanity if you have more shades from the range as shade indication isn’t there but in 100 rs.,what you expect them to do!!!!

???????????????????????????????

SHADE: The shade is a gorgeous warm coral with slight red undertones without any shimmer.It is  a perfect shade to brighten up any skin tone.

???????????????????????????????

Moreover,the maybelline one has lots of golden shimmer in it while ELLE 18 one is sans shimmer.The maybelline one does settle in the lip lines but elle18 one doesn’t.

???????????????????????????????

However,maybelline superstay 055 has more staying power(almost 4 times) as compared to Ellle 18.Also,the fragrance of maybelline is much acceptable and pleasing as compared to elle18’s weird chemical fragrance.
