Bourjois Little Round Pot Eyeshadow #17 Bleu Passe

I've recently been trying to be a bit more adventurous with my eye makeup, instead of just sticking to the standard neutrals. Summer is the perfect time to experiment with colour, whether that's with your fashion or make up. I've been using Bourjois' Little Round Pot Eyeshadow in the shade #17 Bleu Passe* ($17 CAD) to add a soft hint of blue to my eyes.



Bourjois' Little Round Pot Eyeshadows are baked, and they are very soft and blendable. I have tried some baked eye shadows before that were quite hard and difficult to use, but that isn't the case at all with Bourjois' formula! This eye shadow did come with a small sponge applicator, but I decided to use my own Sigma E55. I started off by applying Maybelline's Color Tattoo in Too Cool all over my lids, and then I added Bourjois Little Round Pot Eyeshadow #17 Bleu Passe over top of the cream shadow. I do recommend using either an eye shadow base, or a cream shadow underneath this powder shadow. This will help the colour stay on all day long, without creasing or fading. 


I then turned to my Sephora + Disney Cinderella Storylook Eyeshadow Palette* (reviewed here), and used the shades Midnight and Jaq to add some depth to my crease. I also used Urban Decay's Venus as a brow bone highlight. I used NARS' Larger than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner in Abbey Road (reviewed here) on my lower lash line. For my upper lash line I decided to use Sephora's Jumbo Liner in the shade 19 Grey Glitter* (reviewed here). I finished off the look by adding Revlon's Lash Potion (reviewed here) to my lashes. 


I really love how creamy and blendable this formula is! You can sheer out the colour, or apply it with a dense shading brush for a more pigmented colour. #17 Bleu Passe is such a pretty iridescent blue shade, that I find surprisingly easy to wear. I really like taking one bright or bold colour, and using neutral shades in my crease to soften the look. This formula from Bourjois is long-wearing, especially if layered over a cream eye shadow. 

Have you tried any of Bourjois' Little Round Pot Eyeshadows before? Which shades are your favourites? :)
