Happy Monday everyone! Today I’m sharing with you all something a little different for Lipstick Monday. Bourjois has long been one of my favourite ‘drug store’ brands. I am yet to try a product I haven’t loved. The Rouge Edition Velvet lipsticks are no different…. I absolutely love them and can’t recommend enough!
My chosen shade is 04 Peach Club. The colour is more of a red than a peach. If you were buying this purely on the name and expecting a peach shade you may be disappointed but it is a lovely colour and certainly one I love.
Bourjois Rouge Edition is a bold, matte and long-lasting colour that really does last for ages! Not only does it offer all these fabulous benefits but it is also lightweight, has a velvet texture and does not dry out my lips. In fact, unlike most matte lipsticks I actually find it very moisturising.
The packaging is simple with a transparent tube, making it easy to find the perfect shade to match your outfit. The sponge tip applicator picks up the product easily and evenly and glides onto my lips effortlessly. The applicator makes applying bold lipstick a dream. I would recommend that if you would like more of a tint finish, to apply a dot of the lipstick on the bottom lip and work it in using a finger tip before doing the same to the top. If you are after a more full on look, then apply the colour in thin layers working up to your desired look.
Peach Club long outlived any hot drinks and only needed touching up after lunch. This particular colour would work equally as well in the day as it would in the evening. It is not too full on, but does give a nice ‘pop’ of colour. Perfect for dreary miserable weather!
Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick is priced at £8.99 and is available at Boots (to name only one retailer)
