Bourjois Ombre Stretch

RRP: £5.95
# of shades available: 8

--What does the promo say?--
"Ultra Stretchable eyeshadow, ultra adaptable result. Eyeshadow that can be stretched and blended infinitely, thanks to its remarkable formula enriched with nylon microspheres. It can be used to create looks that range from subtle to intense - you can have fun experimenting! Contained within a gorgeous compact case, with panoramic mirror and expert brush - it'll look great in your handbag."

--Packaging--
In keeping with the young disco queen theme that Bourjois has been using recently, particularly popularised by their Volume Clubbing Mascara. The hinge looks stronger on this than on their Little Round Pot eyeshadows, thank goodness, and it's sleek and compact. Basic plastic with flip top lid, and includes a mirror and brush, which is always nice.

--Application--
Open to experimentation - you can layer it over the whole eyelid just using the brush, just line the top lashes, line the top lashes and then blend outwards...the possibilities are endless.

--Appearance--
Quite a matte colour, though for all I know the others may be more shimmery or glittery. It blends well and can look subtle or more vamped up.

--Longevity--
Sadly, useless. Creases worse than any eyeshadow I've tried for a loooooong time.

--Value for money--
While this product has versatility on its side, you can get far better results with MAC's Pigments or Prescriptives' Moonbeam Eyeshadow (both of which actually stay the distance).
