Advantages: small, complimenting colours, easy to apply, stays put all day
Bourjois are my favourite cosmetics brand to go to for eye shadows and I have owned this little pot of complimenting shades for about a year now and I love it.
I have the one pictured above, which consists of a sparkly dark grey - almost black, and sparkly grey/silver colour and a sparkly white shade which all compliment each other perfectly when worn together.
The eye shadows themselves come in a little round pot with a window in the top so you can see the colours within. It opens via a little round button on the top which you push and the lid lifts up. Inside are the three shades next to each other in a half moon shape, and you also get a double ended application stick. I tend to carry around another little one in my make-up back to use when applying the white shade, and for this I tend to use a brush rather than a stick.
They are very easy to apply once you get used to doing it using a really small applicator, which can be a bit fiddly to begin with but its easy to get the hand of. The different shades blend perfectly when worn together and I find that its easy to get a nice even coverage of each. Some eyeshadows I use tend to move around and flake easily so I end up with a lot under my eyes and on my cheek when applying but that is not the case with these, it stays where I put it. I tend to apply the darker shade closer to my eyes and then get lighter as I move away from my lashes. The staying power of these is really really good too, once applied I find it can last a whole day with only the lighter shade needed a touch up, the darker ones really do stay put which is great.
Overall I would definitely recommed it, it might seem a bit high priced but you get three eyeshadows and their staying power means it will last you a long time as you dont need to keep re-applying it. Perfect complimenting colours for your eyes in a nice little round pot - I will definitely be replacing mine when it eventually runs out - if it ever does!
