My Thoughts On The Bourjois Round Pot Eyeshadow in No 5 :
A highlighting is one of the most important aspects of a complete makeup! Basically, I am a person who would go out with mascara and some highlighter on the brow. I personally don’t use a lot of eye makeup regularly but I like adding that extra natural sheen to my whole look! I feel highlighting adds a serene and natural glow to the face, be it the brows or cheek bones! Have you tired doing it at your cupids bow? Or along the ridge of the nose? I mean have you noticed the massive difference a little thing can do? If not run to your vanity and try it!

Bourjois Round Pot Eyeshadow in No 5 is an illuminator/highlighting shade! It’s a gorgeous rose gold color, more on the beiger side! It has a satin finish with very very fine shimmer! It can be used as a full fledged eyeshadow as well, but it’s more gorgeous as a highlighter! Bourjois Round Pot

Eyeshadows are baked and hence can be used both, wet and dry! Here are some swatches,

Texture :
Bourjois Round Pot Eyeshadow in No 5 has a soft and buttery texture, even whilst being a baked product!

Why do I use it :
• Highlighting my brow bones
• Lightining up nose ridge, cheek bones and cupid’s bow.
• Highlighting the inner corners of the eyes!
• As a lid color

I won’t be talking in general for all the Bourjois Round Pot Eyeshadows but let me just summarize the Bourjois Round Pot Eyeshadow in No 5 for you all!

What’s to LOVE about the Bourjois Round Pot Eyeshadow in No 5 :

• The packaging. CUTE, travel friendly, sturdy and complete! When I say complete I say it because, not all eyeshadows come with a mirror!! :P The applicator is pretty functional and adorable!
• The texture is soft and smooth.
• Blends beautifully. You do not need an extra effort to make this work!
• Looks gorgeous as an illuminator and as a full fledged eyeshadow over the lid it looks equally fantastic!
• I prefer using it dry as an illuminator, whereas for a vivid finish over the lid I use it wet not that when dry it is bad, but when wet it is a little more vivid and prominent!
• The stay-ability of the shadow is pretty nice, this stays over my lids for around 5-6 hours with a primer.
• Doesn’t crease or smudge or smear!
• Great for formal everyday usage!
• It makes my eyes look more awake and open when applied in the inner corners of the eyes!
• Has a little shimmer but it is not OTT hence, it proves to be gorgeous!
• Mineral and baked! I have a thing for both of these! :P
• Paraben Free!
• No fall out!
• Multi purpose!

What’s to HATE about the Bourjois Round Pot Eyeshadow in No 5:

I do not find a flaw in this product! People say these need to be scratched off a little when they grow a little old, but I do not see it as a flaw, since baked products need a little maintenance anyways!

Final Verdict:
If you have missed out on these, do try atleast one of them! They are a must have in my accordance! You get a good quantity of product at the right price! Bourjois Round Pot Eyeshadow in No 5 is a nice illuminator shade and can prove to be your ideal highlighter! 
