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…
