In the summer of 2014 I discovered the Bourjois Rouge Velvet Edition lipsticks, they the most long-lasting lipsticks with a velvet matte finish…it was and still is a match made in heaven.
This year Bourjois brings us a new lip product, it’s shiny but not sticky, long lasting but not drying and feels as refreshing as water on your lips! Allow me to introduce you to the brand new Aqua Laque. It doesn’t feel like you’re wearing anything on your lips and is much lighter than the Velvet Rouge lipsticks.
The shade offering is gorgeous! There is definitely a shade (or four) for everyone. The colours are super pigmented even though the texture is so lightweight. The finish has a glossy shine which gives the perfect pout and I think makes your lips appear larger. Comparing the Aqua Laque to the Velvet Rouge lipsticks, there is no contest because the Velvet Rouge lipsticks are just so long-lasting, you can eat and drink and they don’t budge. The Aqua Laque lipsticks are long-lasting but due to the glossy finish they will slide off, some shades last a lot longer than others. I found Fuchsia Perche and Babe idole have some serious staying power!
They also work great together, I’d wear the Velvet Rouge all day every and then add the Aqua Laque for after work drinks or a quick touch of added glam. A huge applause for Bourjois, never fail to impress us beauty addicts ♥
