Bourjois Intense Extrait Eyeshadow 10 Review and Swatches

Bourjois Intense Extrait Eyeshadow 10

Hi Friends,

This is my first eyeshadow review on IMBB and I am very happy about it as I am writing here after a long time.  I have been doing a lot of shopping these days with Jyo and got a chance to explore many brands that I had wanted to do for a long time, but didn’t do as I never liked going out alone.  As many of you know, I am new to Mumbai and have just been discovering places here.  Thanks to Jyo from IMBB who is very sweet and accompanies me whenever I call her.  We were hanging out at Infinity Mall recently when I wanted to check out some stuff from Westside and noticed this.

Bourjois Intense Extrait Eyeshadow #10 Review and Swatches

One of my friends was raving about this eyeshadow and I knew I wanted this.  I was hunting for a dark black matte eyeshadow for a long time and never found anything so intense and matte as this.  So, here goes the review about an eyeshadow from one of my favourite brands “Bourjois.”

Bourjois Intense Extrait black Eyeshadow


I love love love the packaging.  It comes in a cute pot with a mirror that is of very good quality.  Its very travel friendly as many of us would love to have a black eyeshadow on the go.  It also has a magnetic lock, so it doesn’t open easily. The packaging is quite sturdy and not that cheap plastic kind.  I dropped it a few times and nothing happened.

Bourjoist black eyeshadow


It is a complete matte eyeshadow, something I always love. I am a complete matte person when it comes to makeup. I swatched it and it is not at all chalky. It is a very smooth product and the colour is rich black.

Staying Power:

I did not remove the swatch from my hand and went home. I saw that the colour was the same even at night. I tried rubbing it off, but it  just smudged and did not get completely removed. I love it. However, it came off with my Maybelline makeup remover that I am loving these days.



I bought it for Rs. 410. I did not mind spending so much for a single eyeshadow as this was the perfect black that I was looking for.
