This blog is all about red lips by French cosmetics company, Bourjois! Give a woman the right lipstick, and she can conquer the world. So what do you say? Put on some red lipstick 😉
Best place to purchase: Priceline
Price: $24 AUD
Rouge Edition Velvet is a liquid matte lipstick. They do apply on softly and feel lightweight. The texture easily glides onto the lips with a lovely pigmentation and then turns into a matte velvet colour. The finish still feels soft which is nice because there are a lot of matte lipsticks out there which dry quickly, flake and crumble on your lips. They do transfer a little, but it’s very easy to just reapply. I will say that I’m not the biggest fan of the scent, but I truly do love the formula’s texture. The packaging is small and quite thick with an angled applicator tip to help for precision.
There are 15 shades available, I have 2 shades which are:
- 08 Grand Cru – A deep red shade
- 18 It’s Redding Men – A tomato red shade
Price: $19 AUD
These particular lipsticks have a semi-matte finish, I would describe it as a silky finish which you will see in the images provide below. Packaging again is quite thick and rectangular shaped. I do think the black packaging is very sleek and modern. The pigmentation is beautiful, probably because Shea Butter is contained in these lipsticks which helps to provide a soft and moisturising feeling when you apply. I prefer the scent of these lip products. The scent of these lipsticks actually remind me of the scent of Chanel cosmetics.
There are 10 shades available in this range, I have 2 shades which are:
- 43 Rouge Your Body – A cool toned bright red shade
- 46 Burgund’it – A deep berry shade
Don’t be afraid to rock red lips! Go for it 🙂
Until next time…
