My take on Bourjois Paris Extrait Intense Eyeshadow 08:

Packaging: These shadows come in small compact pan packaging with magnetic lock mechanism. The pan color of all shadows in this range is similar to the shade of the shadow. A small round mirror is lodged at the inner side of the cover. These are small and quite travel friendly too. However, with time I noticed these baked shadows have the tendency of getting dislodged from the pan.

Shadewise: The shade number 8 is a pretty warm sienna brown color with very fine brown gold shimmer embedded in it. Shimmers are very fine and never show any kind of fall out. This shadow has pearl finish and shimmers are finely distributed throughout the shadow. Despite being shimmery I find this shade very much wearable.

This range has following shades:

  • Extrait 01- Olive green gold
  • Extrait 02- Beige with silver shimmer
  • Extrait 03- Pink Beige with silver shimmer
  • Extrait 04- Deep Purple
  • Extrait 05- Deep Green
  • Extrait 06- Denim Blue
  • Extrait 07- Khaki Brown
  • Extrait 08- Sienna Brown with brown gold shimmer
  • Extrait 09-Intense Dark Brown
  • Extrait 10- Intense Matte blackร‚ย 

Texture & Finish: These shadows are baked but unlike other baked eye shadows, these are buttery soft to touch. The texture of the shadow is soft and velvety smooth. Just one swipe picks much product and I did not have to swipe it anymore to build up the shade. It has pearlescent finish with micro shimmers. These do not harden up with time. Formula wise I have been completely bowled out. ๐Ÿ˜€

Pigmentation: It is one of the most pigmented eye shadows from this entire range. I have never found any baked eye shadow till date as pigmented as this one. I just have to swipe once or maximum twice to achieve desired intensity.

Longevity: This eye shadow is one of the long staying eye shadows I have ever come across with. Without an eye primer it stays on my eyes for 4-5 hours with minimal creasing towards the end. With a primer it stays for 8 hours with no creasing or fall out.
