Get Pouty : Bourjois Rouge Edition Souffle de Velvet

When Bourjois first released their Rouge Edition Velvet liquid lipsticks, it was love at first sight. When I found three of their new Souffle de Velvet waiting for me on my desk, I jumped for joy! But they didn’t turn out exactly how I expected them to be…

Alright, so here’s the deal: Bourjois just released liquid lipsticks that are meant to be matte but sheer. Very different. Very interesting. Very exciting.

But.

The moment these babies touched my lips, everything went wrong.

  1. they still have the same obnoxious scent to them – that I don’t really mind, to be honest.
  2. application is very patchy, as anticipated.
  3. I applied a second coat to escape any type of patchiness, but the finish ended up glossy instead of matte.

The colors I have are Cherry Leaders, Carameli Melo, and Orangelique. The first two are gorgeous: a light cherry red, and a brick-ish red. However, that last orange is the patchiest and the shade isn’t even flattering – on me, at least.

I can always try to make the first two colors work, but overall, it’s a no for me. Sorry.
