I take those two pictures from Bourjois website, you can see my own swatches below, I want to show you sort of differences how the actual product looks like on brands website and the swatches and pictures of someone who is using it,
Bourjois website shows this shade sort of blue, but this polish is not that blue.
I can say it is sort of blue with grey undertones or green with grey undertones but not that blue..
I love the brush, it really gives you an easy apply although i did not like the handle it just keeps slipping from my hand
this shade does not really looks nice on its own but if you apply a matte top coat it looks gorgeous.
I always say Bourjous please give names to your nail polishes… Just giving them names are so old fashioned not trendy…

Introducing the Dior Mitzah Collection, inspired by Mitzah Bricard, the audacious and glamorous muse to Christian Dior.
Born in Paris to an English mother and Austrian father, Mitzah Bricard captured the fascination of Christian Dior at the very beginnings of the house. While she was officially responsible for the Dior hat collection, she played a key role in advising and influencing the couturier on many aspects of the brand, including the creation of the ―New Look.
Known for her love of leopard (she wore a leopard scarf wrapped around her wrist at all times), the color lilac and over-the-top jewelry, it was said that Mitzah could ―turn the ordinary into stylish.
“Ms. Bricard is one of those rare people whose only reason for living is elegance,” Monsieur Dior said of his muse, whose unique extravagance helped inspire many of his designs.
The collection, featuring a limited edition 5-Couleurs Eyeshadow palette stamped in the iconic leopard pattern, two Vernis shades inspired by the same earthy print and a tawny, shimmering brown Diorshow mascara, pays homage to this one-of-a-kind woman
- Mitzah 5-Couleurs Eyeshadow ($60.00) (Limited Edition)
- Vernis in Camel / Ebony ($22.00 each) (Limited Edition)
- Diorshow Mascara in Golden Brown ($24.50) (Limited Edition)
Mitzah Collector Palette
Each numbered, limited edition eyeshadowpalette reproduces the legendary ―Jungle‖ panther/ leopard print—now a signature print of the House of Dior—favored by MitzahBricard. Shades of elegantcamel, chocolate brown and beige shadow can be applied separately or combined to create a sumptuous tawny shade.
GiellyGreen’s latest venture has been to create a hair care range in line with the same ideals practiced at the salon. The Boutique Collection is a range based on the world’s finest natural substances, handpicked from around the globe for the unique care and qualities they deliver to the hair and scalp.
The key to the Boutique Collection is the unique combination of ingredients. Ancient minerals are combined with three of the world’s most prolific oils; Argan, Neem and Sea Buckthorn, which have been used in their native corners of the globe for countless generations.
These ancient minerals are mined from a unique location, at the lowest point on earth, 1500m deep inside the sea bed by a hot spring. At this depth UV rays cannot penetrate and degrade them, meaning they are so pure that they have become super-charged. These minerals provide superior nutrition for hair as they are absorbed directly into the follicle, in addition their super-charge boosts the effectiveness of all the other ingredients.
Nothing is more beautiful than strong, healthy, shiny hair.
The products contain NO carcinogens, NO parabens, NO SLS, and NO synthetic fragrance. The raw materials are harvested, processed in a natural manner, and manufactured in the UK using a company who provides employment opportunities to the blind and mentally disabled.
GiellyGreen are proud that the Boutique Collection is a 95% natural product range.
The Boutique Collection – full range:
Volume Shampoo (£16) – will add strength, thickness and shine to your hair.
Repair Shampoo (£16) – is the ultimate solution for hair in need of nourishment.
Classic Shampoo (£16) – will gently support, condition and add shine to your hair.
Classic Conditioner (£16) – has a light formulation designed to fortify and smooth tangled hair every day.
Nourish Mask (£29.50) – a mineral based formulation that will deliver nourishment without adding weight to the hair.
Repair Mask (£29.50) – a mud based formulation with ultra-active ingredients that will deliver ultimate nourishment by penetrating the cuticle, and restoring the hair’s healthy condition.
Argan Rescue (£19.50) – a natural non-greasy remedy that revives weak, tired, dull hair whilst adding shine and smoothing frizz.
Key Ingredients – facts
Argan Oil – is obtained from the fruit of the ancient Argania Spinosa tree, native to Morocco. Argan oil is non-greasy and non-oily, rich in natural antioxidants and vitamin E. It naturally hydrates and locks in moisture to prevent frizziness, flyaway and hard to control hair leaving a natural shine.
Neem Oil – is an ancient Indian remedy used to treat the scalp and restore its natural moisture balance. It is one of Mother Nature’s best cures for dry, brittle hair and dandruff. Hair is instantly more silky, shiny and strong.
Sea Buckthorn Oil – is produced from the golden-orange berries and nutrient rich seeds of the Sea Buckthorn shrub found in Russia. Consisting of many vitamins and essential fatty acids the oil is a powerful anti-oxidant. It nourishes and protects skin and hair from damaging sun-rays and promotes tissue regeneration.
Ancient Minerals and Mud – have been sourced from the Dead Sea which has been renowned for centuries due to the therapeutic properties its salty waters bring. Minerals treat the scalp and hair, injecting moisture, increasing blood circulation and supporting hair growth. Hair is left healthy and shiny.

As I have mentioned when I did a post on NYX casting call, NYX Smokey Eyes and NYX Casting Call are pretty similar almost identical if we skip we shades on NYX Smokey Eyes Palette
If they had Casting Call those days when I purchased NYX Smokey Eyes I would probably buy Casting Call,
It is pretty strong and this is a proper Smokey eyes palette, When I wear Smokey Eyes I use dark shades, dark blacks and this is really good, it is still dusty and that is the weakest point of NYX eye shadow palettes and eye shadows they are really dusty and I always have to swipe the remains with a fan brush.. I have a spare fan brush for those purposes I use Benefit Fan Brush it is small and pretty handy for sweeping eye shadows,
