I am a big fan of Bourjois and I love everything from this brand, from foundation, blushes, nail varnish and everything except eye shadows because I haven’t really tried them, but now, I want to proudly announce that I am a fan of their eye shadows as well. Enjoy the review!
A unique makeup result. 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.

My Take on Bourjois Extrait de Fard Intense 02 Eyeshadow:
My love for this brand made me purchase this eye shadow. I was quite sceptical to buy it because I don’t normally buy individual eye shadows since I have my palettes, but this one, I just had to get it. I swatched it in the store, but was not really impressed as I thought the shimmer would probably disappear after a while. I could really see how intense the colour is and it had that kind of dual shade where it is gold and cream both. Here goes the detailed description:
It has mineral pigments, glitter particles and shimmers which are super finely milled. This makes the texture smooth, not being powdery or chalky.
It stays for 8 hours depending on your lids. I apply it without primer and it works totally fine with me.
Comes in a little, cute, round container, typical Bourjois packaging with mirror and magnetic lock which is stable, travel friendly and strong.
Pros of Bourjois Extrait de Fard Intense 02 Eyeshadow:
- Not at all chalky.
- Stays forever.
- Lives up to the claim, one single application of the intense eye shadow has twice the density of a conventional Bourjois eye shadow!
- Compact and cute packaging.
- Smooth and easy to apply.
- Doesn’t need a primer because colour is very intense.

Cons of Bourjois Extrait de Fard Intense 02 Eyeshadow:
- Expensive for a drug store eye shadow.
- Doesn’t last for 16 hours as it claims.
- No ingredients listed.
Do I Recommend Bourjois Extrait de Fard Intense 02 Eyeshadow?
Yes, this is another Bourjois product which everyone must try because it’s available in India and its not overpriced too. It’s different from other eye shadows because the shimmers inside are very finely milled and it’s very easy to pick up the product and apply on different areas of the face. Overall, the packaging with mirror and magnetic lock makes it travel friendly and unique. Finally, all you dusky gals go check this out, it looks great on Indian skin tones.
