Bourjois Intense Extrait No.4

Hi All,

I love purple and purple eyeshadow are no exception…I picked this one from Stylecraze a while back after reading so many rave reviews about it. I don’t think anyone ever found this less than amazing and I’m happy I indulged in my Purple Passion.;)

 My take on Bourjois Extrait Intense eyeshadow in 04:-



  • Color:This shade is a deep eggplant purple color. It is totally matte without any shine or shimmer.
  • Pigmentation & Texture:I don’t think I can rave enough about this. Just a single swipe shows such intense pigmentation which is truly commendable. The texture isn’t too soft since its baked..but it’s nonetheless easy to blend.

  • Staying Power: These live up to all it claims and the closely packed pigments stay on for long. Even after 7hrs of wear, the es looks just as intense as when first applied.


I love using this as a crease shade. I use this in the crease with MAC Pink Venus on the lid..or even with MAC Cranberry or Coastal Scents Hot Pot in Wisteria. It looks gorgeous. I’m sure this would rock as a smokey eye shade too, but I’m yet to be successful in that endeavor. I also like using this lightly over the lid and just finishing off with a liner.
