My Very Own Shade of Pink!


This month, Bourjois launched a brand new, very special kind of lip gloss called Rose Exclusif.
Now it’s a very clever lip gloss because it treats everyone differently! This is what Bourjois have said about it:
“Enriched with ‘intelligent’ pigments that react to the pH balance of the lips, this exceptional transparent formula turns a unique shade of pink a few seconds after application.”
Well I didn’t know that there was such a thing as intelligent pigments but hey, I’m a sucker for a gimmick so I was super excited to try this.
And try it I did.
Me looking moronic, with naked lips
Let the application begin! It goes on fairly clear
Some more. Starting to get pink
Pinker still
My verdict? I really like it! It feels nice and moisturising and isn’t too sticky. And I LOVE my own special pink colour. It goes on clear and soon becomes a little bit pink and then quite a bit pinker! I’m not sure how well this shows in the photos, but Ben, my seven year old personal photographer/son, once again did his best. He’s completely adorable!
Apparently, depending on your own pH, the colour can range from a pale pink to a bold pink. My pink is really very pinky, which makes me feel extremely and inherently girly! I told you I was a sucker!
It also contains vitamin E and C and says it will deliver 8 hours of hydration. I didn’t count how long my lips felt hydrated but they didn’t feel dry and even when the shine was gone, a hint of pink remained.
Rose Exclusif Lipgloss by Bourjois is available now and costs £6.99.
If you do try it, or have already tried it, I’d love to know what you think.
Can’t wait to hear from you
