Bourjois Paris Ombre Stretch

Although I've bid Bourjois Paris a farewell recently when it went on sale at Sephora it doesn't keep me from bringing good news of new releases from the line!

Bourjois has released a new eye shadow in several countries outside the US called Ombre Stretch. Unlike it's traditional baked eye shadows this appears to be a shimmering shadow in a more traditional compact size!

Very cute in my humble opinion!

I'm doubting these will make it to our shores but expect a review from the Muse shortly anyway as I'm definately lemming these!

Love 'em?

Want some for yourself?

Scored any Bourjois Paris sales at your local Sephora?

I have the teal one of these. The colour certainly does last, but it's a pain in the ass to apply and doesn't blend all that well =(

Hmmm... This advertising campaign is all wrong. They should have made one look like a raccoon virgin and the other look like a raccoon whore. There's no contrast if both of them are les putaines des ratons laveurs.

Still, I am intrigued. Does the nylon really make the eyeshadows stretchy, or just smooth and silky? Either way, I need to test this stuff out for myself... To the Raccoonmobile!

I did hauled the last 4 tubes of Volume Glam Ultra Black mascara my local Sephora had in the store. It looked like they had taken away almost everything else by the time I made it there. *sniff*

Ulta...I have such a love/hate for that place. Maybe I will forgive them when they decide to spell my name right when they send me a mailer every month lol.

Hey Muse, how have you been? I'm really busy these days and haven't got the time to visit u here. I miss u! *Hugs*

Anyway, this has been out here for quite a while here. I tried swatching these but the colour payoff is terrible and came out rather crumpy. Quite a dissapointment from BP :(
Well at least u can save your moolah for some other stuff :)

gracie xo

I first saw these at our local Boots about a month ago. I don't quite grasp the concept though. I swatched all the colours a few times and to be honest, they were rather unimpressive. I'm sad that Bourjois has been more miss than hit with me in the last while... :(

Okay, Musey, I don't mean to disappoint thee, but these are NOT worth the price...the shadows are roughly the same width and length of my pinky...and I have teeny you don't get much product. Second, all of the colors are available in the regular baked, round compact version. I was a bit confused when this collection came out, I was like "Are these any different from their regular shadows? The colors look....EXACTLY THE SAME!" I do admit though, the packaging is really sexy. I would hold out on this collection...

Blogger the Muse said...

hey aya ;)

I'm SO Glad you're telling m this as you know how I am. I want one of every color and end up hating them! You're not the only one that said they suck major butt!

Love the packaging but after hearing the horrors of what is inside I'm definately holding off. Thanks for the tip off ;)

So sucky that the shades are the same..sheesh hello bit more inventive BP!!!!!!! geez ;P
