Bourjois Sweet Kiss Lipgloss

I have another absolute treat from Bourjois that I wanted to share with you. While the sun has been shining (on and off) I've loved wearing a coloured lip. I must say I'm usually more of a fan of lipstick and I don't give glosses a second look but when I won three of the Bourjois Lips Sweet Kiss Glosses I was actually pleasantly surprised.


Firstly the colours are all perfect for Summer, they have that lovely burst of colour that  shines through the gloss that makes me think of ice lollies! I like that the applicator is a small brush, I find brushes easier to apply than doe-foot applicators as you can get a better line along the edge of the lips.


The thing I love the most is how light weight they are, I completely forget I'm wearing them until a gust of wind comes along and blows my barnet straight into them! -can't be helped but my word is it irritating!


They really do give you a great high shine result with the feeling of bare lips and they offer 10 hours hydration too.

Now even though hair getting stuck on them does happen -I actually find it happens with almost all lip products but the gloss itself doesn't feel sticky on the lips, it's
vegetable oil enriched serum formula keeps lips hydrated and thanks to the use of the thin green oil famous for its nourishing properties the oil helps to give the lips a beautiful shine without looking greasy.

There are 6 shades available and I really love the three I have to try out, if I had to pick up 3 shades in a shop I would usually go for a pink, a coral and a red. 


From left to right, 02 Rose Qui Peut is a tender frosty pink, it has a real 'candy' feel about it with it's transparency it looks like a strawberry lollypop! It's a really nice subtle pink that's really easy to wear.

05 Orange Pressee looks orange in the tube but on the lips it give a little more of a coral shade to the lip. It's definitely got a tangerine undertone to it which looks lovely with a tan (I just need to get one!)

Usually if you're after big pigmentation a gloss isn't the place to go but the brilliantly named 06 Cartoon Rouge is such a beautiful striking colour and massively pigmented. It's a real 'Pin Up' colour and it's my favourite of the lot, you can't go wrong with a glossy red lip. 

Even if you're not usually a lipgloss fan these are really great, the first two shades are lovely and subtle and they all give such an elegant shine to boost your lips and give a real fresh look. 

They're £7.99 and both Boots and Superdrug have all Bourjois products on 3 for 2 so it's a great time to try one out. Superdrug give you a free pair of sunglasses and a make-up bag too making it an even better bargain!

*although I won these in a competition all thoughts are 100% my own
