I really love the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Matte lip products!
That ‘s a bit of a mouthful huh?
They are not for everyone, and I feel are very much like marmite. So onto the dislikes where I feel you might be put off – I don’t really like the smell, and the texture is well lets say – a little weird.
But I don’t think everyone will!
This colour is like really, really, really pigmented. The lasting power is around 2 hours, after eating and drinking. Personally I don’t find these lip products drying, but a lot of reviews state otherwise.
“Don’t Pink Of It” is a beautiful pink nude shade, that is really close to my own lip shade. But it gives my natural lip shade a more consistent colour, and a bit of heee yahhh!
It’s perfect for nights out, when eye make-up and contour is the star of the show, and you want a lip colour that doesn’t steal the show, but just does its thang naturally, along side all that jazz! I love a matte lip. It makes such a bold statement, with pretty much no effort. It stays on the lips longer as opposed to a glossy more sheerer finish. Perfect for when you are out for long periods of time, and want your lip colour to stay put.
It fades evenly, which is another bonus. Nothing worse than rocking a patchy, stained lip.
They cost £8.99 each, but Boots always have offers and 3 for 2 deals on – so you’re sure to pick them up for a lot cheaper.
Have you tried this, or other colours from this range? Would love to know your thoughts.
