Relaunched! Bourjois Little Round Pot Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Bourjois have relaunched their iconic Little Round Pot Eyeshadows with new formulas! These pots have been around since 1863 and are free from scent, parabens and contain mineral pigments which make them ideal for sensitive eyes…

There are now 22 new shades (see the end of this post for a full line up!)

Super cute imagery:


I have 6 of these post to swatch and review!


The packaging is the same as the old round pot shadows. I have always liked Bourjois, although I have mixed feelings about their eyeshadows. Some are great, some are not soft enough for me.

I like that the new round pot shadows have been well organised into different textures and types!….
I have two of the dramatic shades here and a highlight:


03 is Indigo, an On Trend Shade – TOTAL UTTER LOVE. LOVE. So pigmented and rich. I want the other shades from the ‘On Trend’ category now like Bleu Canard and Violet Absolu, which I am guessing the model is wearing.

07 is Noir Aux Reflects Emeraude, a Sculpting Shade – a rich deep dark emerald green. Gorgeous. Once again highly pigmented and beautiful, a must have.

94 is Citron Divre Mordore, a Illuminating Shade – a pale yellow highlight. Once again beautiful with a nice blendable texture.


I love all these first 3 shades.

Then we have:


74 Brun Profond with blue accents, from Sculpting Shades – I couldn’t really see the blue accents in it but I guess it has a cool tone to it. Not my favourite shades.

25 Argent Paillete Diamant, from Glittery Shades – a cool metallic silver. Couldn’t really make out the glittery elements of this and it’s not as nice as shade 94 as a highlighter.

13 Prune Pailete Argente, from Glittery Shades – the weakest shade and texture in my opinion. It’s quite dry and flaky and the silver flecks feel out of place on a plum shadow.


These three aren’t my favourite. It’s definitely worth swatching these shades before buying them. I think I’ll stick to the round pots for the darker, dramatic shades.

Little Round Pots are £5.99 each and here is the full line up!:
