To kick start Lipstick Monday in 2016, what better shade than Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick in shade 09 Happy Nude Year?! I bought this shade a few weeks ago and wore it for the first time recently.
I have reviewed a couple of these velvet matte lipsticks and I am always impressed with the finish. As previously mentioned, the colour payoff is exceptional – the colour translates very well on application. I also love how moisturising this shade is for a matte finish.
Happy Nude Year is a lovely pink shade that is very easy to carry off. A nude lip can be one of the hardest colours to get just right as a shade too dark or light can be very unflattering. This shade however is very soft and gives a lovely bright finish. I imagine this pretty shade would suit a wide range of skin tones.
Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick is widely available and is priced at £8.99. It is the perfect shade for adding to your collection to give your face a fresh look this January. And the best bit? For such a lovely colour and finish it won’t break the bank!
Happy New Year to all my readers and followers. Lets hope 2016 is filled with lots of happiness.

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)

I’m always really impressed with Bourjois. They have some fantastic products and offer great value for money. I have been reading some reviews on the new La Laque nail colours and couldn’t wait to get my hands on a bottle – even though I found them rather hard to find! Not every Bourjois display seem to stock these polishes, so when I went to a larger Boots store last Saturday I couldn’t help but treat myself to Chair Et Tendre 02. In the bottle this shade looks very pretty and natural with the slightest hint of shimmer.
So, lets start with the bottle. It is a lovely tactile bottle that is triangular in shape with rounded edges. The shape helps the bottle to sit comfortably in my hands when painting so thats definitely a positive.
La Laque Nail Varnish makes promises that the shades are highly pigmented with a formula that glides effortlessly onto the nail. I found this indeed to be the case, and the brush is a lovely shape that helps me to guide the polish onto my nails. The colour was fairly opaque in just one application but I always like to go for two to correct any streaks that are sometimes inevitable.
The colour is pretty but I am not sure it stands out from other pale nudes. On initial application the colour was a lovely pink shade but after a few days the colour changed to a beige pink colour that I was not so keen on. My manicure lasted for about 4 days chip free with a gel top coat.
So overall, whilst I really love the formula and initial colour I was a little disappointed with how it developed over the course of the week. That said, I think this is more to do with the colour I chose and I will be giving Bourjois La Laque another chance to impress me as I have my eye on Flambant Rose – a beautiful pinky red that will look great on my toes!
Bourjois La Laque Chair Et Tendre 02 is priced at £6.49, however it can be found a little cheaper online at various outlets. I bought mine from Boots taking advantage of a 2 for £14 offer that is currently on.
Hope you found this little review useful. I would love to hear from you if you have tried Bourjois La Laque to see how you found it, and to recommend any other colours.!
