Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick

Monday, 15 June 2015

If you read my Lipstick lust-list, you'll know that this was one of the lip products that I was desperate to get my hands on. And, on a recent trip to Boots, I spotted it and just couldn't wait any longer.

This little beauty is the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick in shade 07 'nude-ist'. I have loved Bourjois products for a while - infact, their 'Fond de teint brush foundation' was one of the first foundations I ever used and I got addicted, until it was sadly discontinued - and that love has only grown since trying more and more of what they have to offer.

The Rouge edition velvet lipstick range consists of 12 shades, with a mix of matte and satin finishes. They retail for just £8.99 each and boast bold and intense colour with 24 hour hold. Now, I'm not sure mine held for quite that long, but it was pretty darn close!

I don't know exactly what I expected from this, shade 07 is a matte finish edition, so I wasn't expecting anything too gloopy or shiny like a lipgloss, but I certainly wasn't expecting it to be as good as it is. The colour is so strong and it is literally like a liquid lipstick.
I have found that this applies more evenly and neatly when used with a lip brush rather than the doe foot applicator it comes with, but nonetheless, it is an amazing piece of make up to have in your kit.
A little of this goes a long way, so it's important to use it sparingly but its good to know that even though this has a matte finish, it doesn't dry the lips out and make them look chapped and cracked as many matte lip products do, it just leaves them perfectly velvety and pigmented.

As you can see, 'Nude-ist' appears to be more of a pink tone rather than nude, but either way it is still a beautiful colour and, and an  easy way to do pink lips if your not going for that fuchsia look which seems so popular in the summertime.
I have to say that I do prefer this to the Rimmel apocalips. Although the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick shade range is more limited I prefer the finish that they give and the longevity of the product!

Overall, a lovely lip product which I am glad I picked up. I think I'll try shade 'Dont pink of it' next!
