Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Laque Lips Reivew

I am always excited by Bourjois' new releases and I think lip products are something they do brilliantly. Their Rouge Edition range in particular is a huge favourite of mine. I love their lipsticks and everyone raved about the liquid lipsticks from last year for good reason. I was really excited to try out the Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Laque lipsticks.


The Rouge Edition liquid lipsticks have amazing staying power along with excellent pigmentation too. 
I am a massive fan of the Velvet matte versions and now Bourjois have released a glossy version excellently named Aqua Laque for those who prefer a shine to their lips. I actually prefer a matte finish but that didn't mean I wasn't excited about this new release. I knew the staying power alone was going to be impressive.

There are 8 shades available and I have 4 to play with. I think all of the shades are great for Spring, they have a really fresh, floral look to them - especially all lined up together.


Bourjois promise a mirror-like shine and a non sticky formula that moisturises while you wear it. There's nothing worse than a lipstick that had a great colour but drys out your lips - far too much maintenance!

The four shades I have are 08 Babe Idole, 01 Appechissant, 07 Fuchsia perche and 06 Feeling Reddy.

These feel really light on the lips, almost water-like. The shine is fab too, the gloss lasts a couple of hours but they leave a stain to the lips afterwards so you can ensure your lips still have a pop of colour. 

I think they are great for day wear as they are a lot more subtle than the thicker matte formula and the lighter shades are pretty sheer. They are great blended out and even when blended they don't lose the colour.

They don't need a lip liner as the doe foot gives precise application and they don't bleed on the lips. I do tend to use a liner with a dark shade anyway, it's just habit. 


I think the matte versions are still my favourite as I prefer a matte finish but I love these for a long lasting colour and the stain offers a subtle look for day time- these are going to be great for holidays (and my trip to Disney next month too!)

Have you tried these yet? Do you have a favourite?
