The newest lip product from Bourjois had everyone talking. The Rouge Edition lipsticks were popular but the Velvet versions caused a storm in the blogging world. Looking a bit like a gloss but drying with a matte finish to stain the lips and provide a long wearing colour, the Rouge Edition Velvet lipsticks proved to be very very popular.
I admit while everyone was raving about these, it was a product I wasn't overly excited about. I had a little swatch and was impressed with the texture and the staying power (I still had coloured swatches on my hand at the end of the day) there just wasn't a colour that was very 'me'.
I attended the amazing Bourjois Summer party and was pleased to see they were releasing two new shades. Both shades are on the opposite end of the spectrum, a nude and a deep red, one for day to day wear and one for a vampy night-time look. Now these completely grabbed my attention!
I love anything that is low maintenance, I hate having to reapply make-up during the day so the fact that these were not only gorgeous shades but also long wearing was very appealing to me.
I love the sleek packaging, they have a really high-end feel to them and it's easy to see which colour you are grabbing out of a packed make-up bag. I much prefer it when the colour of the lipstick really jumps out, it saves me a lot of time! The doe foot applicator makes it really easy to apply and it's easy to get a straight line along the lip.
07 Nude-ist is a pink toned nude. It adds a little pink to your lips to give you a ‘my lips but better’ look. It is wet and creamy when you first apply it and due to the creaminess I was concerned they would be sticky and smudge all over the place but once on the lips they dry to a lovely matte finish and I actually forgot I was wearing it.
I can't say whether these last 24 hours like they claim - I don't think anyone wears make up for that long. But they sure do last! They fade evenly and are not at all drying, which I admit was a worry of mine given that they stay on the lips so long.
These are available now and are £8.99 in Boots but £5.99 in Superdrug at the moment!
