Being a total lip product addict I have obsessing over the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet lipsticks for a while now. I attended the Bourjois summer launch event last week and was over the moon when all the make-up was on display and out for all to play with. After having my lips read by one of the Psychic Sisters, yes that’s right she read my lips…literally! I chose a shade of the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet lipstick (instantly the brand new shade Nudist stood out) and applied it effortlessly. After doing a lip print on a piece of card, one of the Psychic Sisters very accurately gave me a lip reading. I was ever so slightly distracted by the lightweight but very velvet feeling on my lips, as the lipstick turned matte it didn’t dry out my lips at all. After a few drinks and a canape or two I was on my way home and when I looked in the mirror I was amazed that my lipstick was still there!
Liquid lipsticks are all the rave at the moment and I have been loving the Sephora Lipstain and the more luxury Hourglass Opaque Rouge liquid lipstick but right now I have to say that this Bourjois lipstick is my new favourite! It is 100% up there with Hourglass if not better.
There are now two brand new shades to compliment the current six, Nudist is my favourite! It is a gorgeous everyday shade that lasts all day and stays looking fresh. The foam applicator makes easy application, I use the pointy part to line my lips first and then fill in the rest of my lips. It takes a while to mattify but it does not dry our your lips in the process.
For me, two coats and I am ready to go and for around 5-6 hours I don’t have to worry about re-applying my lipstick. It’s official ladies…the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet lipstick is my make-up love ♥
