Bourjois Makeup Reviews, Swatches and Product News

During my most recent trip to Boots, I can’t help but have my eye on the new Bourjois Imperfection Concealer ($15). With a cute leopard print packaging and a built-in mirror on the cap for easy touch-ups, how can you not?! But other than the cute packaging, this concealer is a very average product.

Yes the “melt-on-the-skin formula” gives it a creamy, blendable texture but the coverage is far from enough to eradicate my undereye circles. The color selection also sucked. There are only two shades available – a pink-based beige and a golden-based beige both in light shades – so if you do not fall under those two shades, you will not be able to find a match.

Save your money for something else! There are definitely better products out there at this price.

My latest obssession is the oh-so-cute French line Bourjois which is famous for its cute little pot packaging. The line has been around since 1863 (that’s over 100 years, now how impressive is that?!!) and is manufactured by the same company that makes Chanel’s cosmetics.

Below are some of my favorites from the line. If you guys need help getting anything, definitely let me know! Bourjois is a little cheaper here in London and they always do promotions on new and existing products.

Little Round Pot Blush ($13.50)
This is the product that got Bourjois its fame. I have Rose d’or 34, which is a shimmery rose petal pink color that is too too gorgeous to resist. It goes on super pigmented with a sweet rosy smell and when I apply this on my apples, it makes me look like a doll. I’m definitely going to start collecting these.

Good news to all you Bourjois fans out there! Mini Bourjois, a pocket make-up range by Bourjois, has been launched. Currently, the entire line is available only in certain countries like Spain, France and Japan. Hopefully, it will come to London soon.




These mini eyeshadows come in 28 shades and are the same size as the regular pot eyeshadows. The only difference is that they come in little pans and you can put them in palettes that come with either 2 or 3 slots just like the MAC 4-pans. Also, the applicator that comes with the pot eyeshadows is not included.




This is a mini version of Bourjois’ best-selling lip gloss, Effet 3D. It comes with a charm that attaches to any cell phone giving it a chic look and giving you more room in your purse. This is also available at Sephora in the US for $9.




These mini nail polishes come in 30 yummy shades under 5 different collections -Breakfast a Londres, Emplettes a New York, Cocktails a Barcelone, Diner a Paris and Club a Miami.

I will be starting off a list of blush reviews as requested by some of you. I personally prefer powder blushes over cream because they last longer and are easier to apply. Plus when you use a cream blush and blend too much, you might end up rubbing the color off.

Bourjois Little Round Pot BlushTo start off, let’s look at Bourjois Little Round Pot Blush, the the product that got Bourjois its fame.

The blush comes in a cute round pot with a built-in mirror and brush so you can apply on the go. It also has a baked texture that transforms into an ultra-fine pressed powder. I have Rose D’or 34, a shimmery rose petal pink color that is too too gorgeous to resist. The powder goes on super pigmented with a sweet rosy smell and when I apply this on my apples, it makes me look like a doll. I’m definitely going to start collecting these.
