Get pouty: Bourjois’s Rouge Edition Velvet liquid lipsticks

March 18, 2014

I’m kind of loving all things Bourjois at the moment. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve always loved their products. But I found myself reaching towards Bourjois a lot lately. It started with these new Rouge Edition Velvet liquid lipsticks. Oh. My. God. Where do I begin? 

First of all, check out that packaging. I mean, who would have thought that’s a drugstore product? Nobody! And from outside, the colours look so bold and pretty that I would buy these before swatching them. I’m ashamed to be me as well (that’s a lie). Seriously, look at them. So simple and chic.
The shades I have are Personne ne rouge!, Hot pepper and Peach Club. The colour payoff is freakin’ crazy. They make such a good statement and they’re here to stay. Literally, they don’t move and they last until tomorrow. Ok maybe not tomorrow but they last for a while. I ate two meals before the first touch up. True story. 
They go on like a dream: smooth, silky, slippery and soft. The best part is that they have a matte finish without drying out the lips. I found that, if a second coat is applied, it gives a bit of a glossy finish. 
All the colours I have are gorgeous. I was a bit surprised by Peach Club. I didn’t think it would look that bright. Nevertheless, it still looks amazing. 
So I think you’ve guessed by now, I really love these and contemplating the idea of getting Nude-ist or Frambourjoise or Ole Flamingo or all of them. They have found a new home in my heart and in my handbag. 
What are your handbag lipsticks? Have you tried these?

    These look so cute – definitely lovely packaging! Would loved to have seen some swatches though, just to sus out the matte finish. These haven’t arrived in my country yet but I will definitely check them out when they do. 2 meals before a touch up is impressive!
