Review : Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks

Hello everyone,

I have absolutely loved using these two products and I thought I would share my thoughts with you guys.

I have seen these lipsticks featured in various favourites videos and there was a lot of advertising hype around them at the time when they come out.

When I went to pick myself up one of these little beauties I stuck with a predicament - which colour should I chose? So I got both. 

These were both under the 'everyday nudes' section and I must admit they are anything but 'nude'.  These were probably the two most subtle colours within the collection and hence my tentative choices.  Do not get my wrong, I am all for a bold lip but I find myself picking up so many bold colours and I wanted to have a go at these so called 'everyday nudes'.

I automatically reached for 04 Peach Club because I have been searching for a good coral, peachy colour and I thought this looked like a good choice. Then upon further inspection I saw the 02 Frambourjoise (still totally unsure how to pronounce this!) and at the time I was wearing a very similar colour on my nails and logic dictates that if you see a lip colour to match your nail varnish you got to buy it (just me? Okay then.) so I pushed the boat out and bought both.

I do not regret it for a moment.

The product itself is goes on so smooth (just like a silk) and like the name suggests, velvety, but dries completely matte. It's gorgeous.  It doesn't leave my lips quenching for some extra moisture. 

And the colour.

Both the colours are so beautiful and bright.  The Frambourjois is a cross between red and pink and it just a beautiful bright and the Peach Club is equally bright but a gorgeous spring summery peachy-coral.

These lipsticks will literally see me through from morning to night.  They are not so bright you can't get away with them during the day and I have put these on in the morning and they still don't budge by the time I get home in the evening.  Adding a little slick of  tinted Vaseline (either the rose or the limited edition 'paint town the town' red one both look awesome) just brings a lovely glossy look back to this lip product once it has been on for a few hours.  I have also worn both of these on nights out and they are ideal because there is no transfer and no need to worry about re-applying after a few glasses of vino.

These products are just beaut.  I really cannot rave about them enough; the colours are beautiful and bright and they stay on all day long with no touch ups.  I seriously cannot wait to get my hands on some lovely bright reds!

On my lips is 02 Frambourjoise which I wore for a recent video WIMB: Festival Edition

On my lips is 04 Peach Club which I wore for a recent video filming with a touch of Vaseline over the top

These are £8.99 and link is here.
