First Look: Bourjois Colour Edition 24H Round Pots

Bourjois Colour Edition 24H Round Pots Packaging

There’s a new member of the Round Pot family that’s arriving just in time for the season of all things Christmassy.  Look, I’ve tried really hard not to mention the “C” word yet, but it needed to be used! Next month, Bourjois launch their AW13 collection which consists of, among other things (more on those later), new Colour Edition 24H Round Pots which I think are going to cause a mahoosive stir.

There are six shades available so far, which collectively form a brilliantly seasonal edit.  The Bourjois Colour Edition 24H Round Pots are going to very quickly be compared to the Maybelline Colour Tattoo shadows, because not only do they look similar, but they also serve a similar function; a solid, high-colour, long-term eye shadow.

However, if I were to compare these to anything currently on the market, I’d go more for Bobbi Brown Metallic Long-Wear Cream Eyeshadows as they’re more alike both colour and texture-wise.  Bourjois’ offering has a firmer, powdery feel that’s much more solid to the touch, whereas the Maybelline ones are a lot more creamier.

I haven’t tested these enough to know how they perform long-term, but I will be doing another post on the full AW13 collection soon, by which time I’ll have gathered more of an opinion of these shadows.  I will say at this point that I absolutely love the shades, texture and finish, and knowing how rare a dud is from Bourjois, I have extremely high expectations for these Colour Edition 24H Round Pots, which launch next month for £6.99 per pot.
