Bourjois: Rouge Velvet The Lipstick

Bourjois are a brand I have absolutely loved for years, they have amazing quality makeup, with a fab range, for affordable prices. Bourjous have recently released the new Rouge Velvet the Lipsticks* and I have them ALL to share with you.

The range includes 12 amazing matte intense shades that go from the nudest nude up to beautiful berry browns. They really do have a shade/colour for everyone ...

I adore the packaging of these newbies, and love that the colour of the lipstick is the same colour as the sleek outer packaging. The formula of these new lipsticks is incredible, it gives a stunning bold colour that dries down to a beautiful matte look, and it also lasts well on the lips. 

Now the one thing I will say is that Bourjois have stated that these last up to 24 hours, and I honestly can't say that they do. I have been wearing these for a few weeks now and have found the colour to start wearing away after approx 4-5 hours, or quicker if eating/drinking. But they feel super comfortable on the lips and I just top up when needed.

The lipstick bullet on these beauties is amazing, it has a high precision shaped bullet (as seen above), allowing for really easy/quick application, especially to the top lip. I have to say I do love the whole look and feel of these lipsticks, you can tell a lot of time and effort was put into the development of these lipsticks. 

Now onto the swatches and amazing shade names ...

As you can see they are incredibly beautiful bold shades that are super soft in texture and apply with ease, no dragging in the slightest. The scent of these lipsticks actually reminds me of play/dress up lipsticks I used to have as a child, which I rather like but some may not.

My most used shades are the first four from the collection, really easy nudes/pinks that are great for my everyday wear. But the shade range is perfect for all year around, with the stunning oranges/corals for the spring/summer and incredible red/berry tones for autumn/winter.

So an overall really impressive lipstick collection, stunning shades, amazing precision bullet, they last well (not 24hours), and feel comfortable on the lips. 

The Rouge Velvet the Lipsticks are £8.99 each (RRP), and are available from Boots, Superdrug and Feel Unique.
