I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, but Bourjois can do absolutely no wrong in my eyes at the moment. I’m a convert to the 1 Seconde Volume Mascara, to the extent that no other mascaras come close and my trusty L’Oreal Million Eyes is now sat at the back of a drawer. I’m also reaching for the 1 seconde gel nail varnishes over any other brand and with the release of the Winter collection, Bourjois have had me fall for the Bourjois Quad Smoky Stories eyeshadow Palettes* like there is no tomorrow.
A collection of eight different quads, all designed to give you that easy smoky eye look with the addition of a pop of glitter to take you from desk to disco. Bourjois were kind enough to send me four of the quads to try out for myself in the following colour shades; Grey and Night, Over Rose, Rock Khaki and Good Nude. The palettes are designed to simplify eye make up application with its easy to understand technique. The shades in each palette all compliment each other well and blend together seamlessly to give a perfect smoky eye. The lightest shade, designed to prime also has an eye primer blended into the formula for 12 hour hold. The medium shade is designed to shadow. Blend into the outer corner of your eye and over the socket in a windscreen wiping motion. The darkest shade is to define. Blend it into the socket, run it under your lower lash line and use it to define the eye as a liner. The gorgeous glitter can be used as a highlight, to brighten the inner corners of your eyes or to make your eyes pop by tapping the glitter over the centre of the lid. The foam applicators that come with palettes are usually useless and get thrown away but I really like the precise tip on the applicator for defining and the foam tip for adding the glitter.

I love the Bourjois Quad Smoky Stories eyeshadow palettes that I have and I am constantly looking out for the other four to make up the collection. Each time I nip into Boots, they are always sold out. Have you tried the Smokey Stories Quads? What did you think?
