Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet...

Monday, 5 May 2014

I am 100% a lipstick girl, I often shun lipglosses and the likes. So when I first saw these I pretty much dismissed them as something that is really not for me at all. I thought that they would just be another lip product that would pass me by and I wouldn't care too much. But then, they kept cropping up in people's favourites videos and posts so I started to have my mind changed. They aren't lipglosses at all, but the most amazing liquid lipsticks that last forever.

I picked up the shades 03 Hot Pepper and 04 Pink Pong because they are the brightest out of the collection and we all know I love a bright lip. They were on offer in superdrug, buy one get one half price so I had both for just over £12 which isn't too bad.  Plus it helped me not have to face the decision of which ONE would I get because getting two just made more sense. 

I love the nifty packaging they are so convienient for travel and I really like the look of them. I love how the packaging matches the colour of the product exactly. They have a doefoot applicator which helps with being able to apply these so precisly you won't need a lip brush.

I find that with both of them it's best to put a really rough layer on first where it doesn't look like you have an even coverage, wait for a moment and then apply a slightly thicker layer  to really even out the colour. Think of it abit like nail polish, thin layers and wait for it to dry inbetween. 

The two best things about these lipsticks? They last forever and I mean forever. Out of habit I go to reapply during the middle of the day and I just don't need to, the lipstick still looks as I have just put it on which is insane as I am constantly drinking throughout the day. The other amazing thing? They don't transfer, well after first applying they do but only the tiniest amount - leave them to dry and that's it. They are staying put, this does mean they they are a nightmare to get off but I think I prefer that than having to reapply all the time.
