Everyone knows about my love affair with the By Terry Ombré Blackstars but at almost £40 a pop, my collection is growing very, very slowly. So I was super excited when I first heard the Blodosphere start to murmur about a similar product from Bourjois called the Colourband Eyeshadow and Liner, and even more excited when I managed to get my paws on the four of the six shades in the collection last week - and couldn't wait to compare them with their more expensive cousins. 

From left to right the colours are;

01 Noir Abstrait - an inky black
02 Brun Dadaiste - A warm metallic brown 
03 Beige Minimalist - A light gold
04 - Rose Fauviste - a glorious Rose gold.

What I love about this product is its versatility. It can be applied straight from the crayon, with your finger or a brush. It can be used on its own or as a base for other colours or if you load it onto an fine brush, it can be used to line the eyes.

I have tested all four colours, together and individually, with and without a primer and can say hand on heart - they didn't smudge, transfer or run, and looked just as good at the end of a somewhat wild, drunken night out with the girls, as they did when I walked out of the house. In all honesty, on the particular night I am referring to, my eye makeup was still perfect when I woke up the next day despite the rest of my makeup being smeared all over my pillow - I know, I know, SUPER bad behaviour!!!

So at £5.99 each are the Bourjois Coulourband Eyeshadow and Liner a dupe for the By Terry Ombré Blackstars - absolutely! But Bourjois really do need to include their shade range if they are going to compete. Meantime though, I do highly recommend you snap up all four of these beauties - at £5.99 each it would almost be rude not to...

  • I've seen a few reviews for these now.. all good. Think I will treat myself to a couple. Im getting too old for too much on my lids for an everyday look but do like some shadow along my upper lashes.I currently tend to dampen the shadow a little to get the effect I want and then go over with a blending brush in the hope it looks subtle. These could possibly make the job a little easier ...maybe. At 5.99 I wouldn't be spending a fortune to give them a go.

      Lynn I really do recommend you give them a go. Simply draw onto your upper eyelid then blend out the edges with a brush and you are good to go.
