Bourjois Paris Intense Extrait eyeshadow in 02 - Review, Swatch and EOTD

I love Bourjois products for their quality. I have tried couple of their products like eyeliners, foundation, primer and powders. They have hardly failed me. Driven by the confidence, I ordered two shades of their intense extrait eye shadows. Today I will be reviewing the shade 02.

The pictures of the pot were taken in sunlight so kindly excuse. The swatches and EOTD depict the color better.

Made from 87% mineral pigments, precisely measured and selected, INTENSE is highly concentrated for 2 x more coverage than a classic eyeshadow in one single application.


Our iconic eyeshadows have been women’s beauty favorite for almost 150 years! The formula is manufactured using Bourjois’ unique baking process for radiant colour, silky textures and perfect blending. And, it lasts for up to 16 hours*!
And it’s good for my eyes!

INTENSE is made up from mineral pigments. It is hypoallergenic, parabens- and fragrance-free and suitable for contact lens wearers.

Available in a wide range of 10 exclusive shades and suitable for all occasions and styles:-

The essential shades, to illuminate and sculpt the eyes (01, 02, 03, 09, 10)
The dramatic shades to intensify the eyes (04, 05, 06, 07, 08)
* Scientifically tested on 100 panelists.

It looked so cute. The pot looked so tiny and sturdy. It is priced at INR. 575/- for L one gram.

The shade 02 is a subdued golden beige color. It looks gorgeous as an overall lid color and even gorgeous as a corner highlighter when used along with darker shades. It is shimmery but not chunky or glittery.

It can be used in wet and dry form.

When used in dry form, it has fallout's. The pigment is fine but the fall out is not extreme or annoying. The pigmentation is pretty decent for a shade like this even in dry form. It gets immensely intensified when used wet. I prefer using it dry as I like the subtle look of it.

Staying power is not amazing if used dry and without a base. But on a base, it stays put for a decent amount of time. I wore it for 5 hours before wiping it off. I did not use it wet for the reason already mentioned. I don’t think 16 hr staying power can be achieved if used dry.

The texture of the eye shadows is very good and it is easy to work with.

Let me stop here and quickly list down the pro’s and con’s before moving on to my EOTD!

What I Like:
  1. Cute packing. Comes with a tiny mirror.
  2. Gorgeous color.
  3. Good pigmentation especially for a golden beige shade.
  4. Can be used both wet and dry.
  5. Easy to apply and blend.
  6. Decent staying power.
  7. It is hypoallergenic, parabens- and fragrance-free.
  8. Safe for contact lens wearers.

What I Hate:
  1. INR. 575/- for 1 gram?? 
  2. Fall outs. Cannot be complained given the shade and formula.
  3. No brush or applicator included.

It is very good. No doubt about that. But I am not sure about spending INR. 575/- on a single eyeshadow.

I may buy one more shade from this range. The green colored one in shade no. 11.
