Review - Bourjois Color Edition 24H in Petale de Glace

I am slowly entering the world of cream eyeshadow. I usually reach for the traditional pressed powder eyeshadow - easy to work wit, easy to blend. But when I am sent a cream eyeshadow as pretty as Petale de Glace, I must set my preferences aside and work on using new things!

The Color Edition formula is a "cream to powder," so after my blending issues with the Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon pencil, I decided not to put a base eyeshadow down, and just use this on top of my eye primer (NARS Smudgeproof.) The shadow glides on pretty effortlessly, and I was able to blend the edges out enough to use some other powder eyeshadows in the look. However, if I did not blend right away, it was more difficult to blend after the eyeshadow had 'set' for a bit. So long as you work quickly, blending is not a huge problem.The eyeshadow did not crease over the span of 9 hours, and I did not notice much fading of the color.
