We do this to help with eye shadow longevity, prevent creasing and to increase the colour pay off.
For winter Bourjois have released some cream to powder eye shadows that give a sheer wash of colour with a metallic glittery finish.
I liked the silicone texture and found them easy to blend although I advise not to buff at them to much as the colour does tend to blend away easily. The texture reminded me of the Illusion D'ombre from Chanel although not quite as rich in colour.
I preferred the lighter colours amongst those I tested. I found that the darker colours seemed to go on patchy if buffed on with a fluffy brush. The best way to apply the darker colours are to pack on with a firmer flat brush to avoid this.
I liked how they performed as a base under powder eye shadows though and the light silver and gold were beautiful as a highlighter on the inner corner of the eye or under the brow bone depending on your skin tone.
With one swipe you can see the colour is very rich and it instantly goes to a powder texture.
The metallic finish is created by a very fine glitter pigment running through it.
If you layered these colours on you may get a good days wear but worn alone I'm not sure they would last 24 hours. Let us know if you have tried these and how they worked for you.
