Bourjois Velvet Edition Lipsticks!

Calling all beauty and makeup lovers!  Yes, that's right... YOU!  I have found the perfect product, which I think is both incredible and easy to apply, but also stays on even after a kiss or two... And I just couldn't wait to share it with you all!  So without further a do let's begin!

For a while now I have been on the search for lipsticks of Classic Autumnal shades for both daytime and nighttime.  Autumn is my favourite season, because with fashion and beauty... The most amazing colours seem to be around!

I glanced over at the Bourjois counter of my local Boots store, and looked upon their iconic 'Rouge Edition' range.  I have previously bought a couple of their Rouge Edition 'Aqua Laque' lipsticks, which were very moisturising in texture and ideal for summer.  It comes to you as no surprise then, that I went for the Rouge Edition 'Velvet' range, which just sounds so wintery!

The first colour I picked up was number 7 'Nude-ist', and to me it is the most amazing daytime shade.  It's a pink/nude colour which is perhaps two shades darker than your natural lip colour.  It is fantastic for when you want to recreate a natural makeup, but is also good for teaming up with a smokey eye!

The second colour I picked up was number 14 'Plum plum girl', and it was a colour that I don't normally tend to buy!  Lately, I have been incredibly in love with berry toned lipsticks such as cranberry/raspberry/cherry etc and so it was inevitable that a plum colour was going to happen!  This shade once applied is a very deep purple that almost has red tones running through it, which help to make the colour not too bold.  I like to wear this lipstick in the evening, especially when I am going out, because it gives the right amount of colour without washing you out and it goes with all Autumnal outfits... Trust me, I've tested!

The 'Velvet' range is of a much different consistency to the 'Aqua Laque' edition.  Instead of being a wet texture on the lips, it actually dries with a Matte Finish and the colour lasts for such a long time without staining your lips.  Also, this lipstick is fully kiss proof which is perfect, because it will just last and last!

I'm so happy with my new lipstick purchases and I cannot wait to start wearing them on a daily basis!  Have you tried these lipsticks before?  And are there any other lipsticks that you would recommend I should try out?

  1. These are my favourite 'drugstore' lippies & I find their staying power excellent too. I just find them a teeny little bit drying but nothing that a topcoat of plain lip balm can't sort out ��

    1. That is so very true... I always have my trusty lip balm in my bag for when I need to add a bit of moisture. Other than that, they are fantastic! I'm glad you use Boujois lipsticks too!
