Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick Review, Photos, Swatches

Saturday, 1st Mar 2014
I am very excited because I managed to get my hands on some samples of the brand new Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks and the good news is, they really are as good as I hoped for!!
Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick Review
I have had a play, swatched them up, taken shots of each shade on my lips and eaten a sandwich! I was hungry and it seemed like a good opportunity to challenge the 24 hour hold claim.

And here are the Bourjous Rouge Editions shades (from left to right) 02 Frambourjoise, 03 Hot Pepper, 04 Peach Club & 06 Pink Pong:
Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick Swatches
The pigment is super intense, they have a light feel and a good bit of play time before they set into place. They don’t feel drying at all and the applicator is perfectly shaped to line and define the lips with good precision. The finish is beautiful – not so matte that the lips look parched, they still have a pretty lustre.
I shot each shade on my lips, and then had to work fairly hard to get them off ready for the next one! If some don’t look completely matte it is because they were freshly applied. I have a photo at the end that shows one of the shades I’d been wearing for a few hours.

I also tested re-application, which is sometimes very tricky when it come to matte liquid lipstick formulas. More good news on this front – it layers up very easily and a second coats gives a finish that is as perfect as the first. Phewph! So no cracky, peeliness at all!There are other shades too 01 No Red, 05 Flamingo Ole, 07 Nude-ist and 08 Grand Cru.
Here is Pink Pong after a few hours, a sandwich and a light second coat applied not from necessity but to test out layering.

Basically Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks are brilliant. This is a serious score for Bourjois and once again they have managed to produce a high-end feel, high performance and high fashion product for the high street.
UPDATE – there are 2 new shades added to the line up. Buy them at Boots for £8.99. See the new shades HERE.
