So here is the entire Bourjous Vintage collection as promised - I thought I would do it a little sooner than planned as Asos have a sale on all the pots except for Argent (the shimmery silver shade). But the rest are priced at £3-£4 instead of the normal price of £5.85! So I figured if you are planning on purchasing some of the pots in the sale it would be nice to see some swatches first.
You can also read my previous post on the blushes in the vintage collection here.
Here is what Bourjois had to say about the Limited Edition pots - Bourjois have teamed up with the Parisian Artist and Illustrator Nathelie Lete to celebrate the brand's Parisian heritage, with a limited edition collection of its infamous Little Round Pots for eyes and cheeks called
" Rendez -vous a Paris". Each pot in this colourful, romantic and playful collection has its own unique design celebrating famous Parisian landmarks.
I totally agree with the statement about applying this along the base of the lashes - I would apply this wet though with a liner bush (to intensify the colour) and then blend it out slightly. When used dry, the pigment is alot lighter than what it looks in the pot so it's definitely suitable for the day.
Here are the swatches of the eyeshadows in the same order as above - As you will be able to tell I have swatched them all wet and dry. Not that I need to tell you all this but the thinner more pigmented lines are the eyeshadows applied wet. But ofcourse you knew that already!
Overall - The eyeshadows are all quite pigmented and very blendable. They also work perfectly together especially the lighter shades with the two darker shadows.
Also something that I feel is worth mentioning is that the pots themselves are limited editions however the shades are a select few from the existing Bourjous Ombre a paupieres range which has alot wider range with about 25 shades. The limited edition pots only seem to be available online from Asos and afew other websites like HQ Hair. The normal range is available both offline and online at Superdrugs and Boots.
Also like I mentioned at the beginning of the post ASOS do have a sale on at the moment.
Blanc Diaphane & Violet Absolu are both reduced to £3 each from £5.85
Beige Rose & Noir Precieux are reduced to £4 each.
