Red lipstick is my beauty nemesis. There I said it, that classic red lip that screams glamour, is a look that i so admire but rarely wear.
I will spend a tedious amount of time, lining my lips, filling them in with a pencil, carefully applying the most gorgeous lipstick, and no matter what I do, drink through a straw, eat as lady like as possible, (quite a challenge for myself I must say!) an hour later and the colour has bled, I’ve got it on my chin, and only colour is on the edges of my lips.
Bourjois is not a brand I have used a lot in the past, but the beauty bloggin’ world has been loving the new Rouge Edition Velvets, a long lasting lip stain with vibrant colour pay off.
On a recent trip to boots I checked out there colour range and decided on the deepest red – 08 Grand Cru.
I was impressed!
It is a doe foot applicator and the velvet texture consistency glides on perfectly.
The colour is a deep red with a slight berry tone, perfect for them Christmas parties and it got plenty of compliments throughout the day.
It did not budge all day! Two meals, numerous cups of tea, 8 hours at work and it was going nowhere.
Even after cleansing, it was still present, and an acceptable colour to wear.
I am well and truly sold on these little gems and shall be repurchasing more from the colour range, and at a bargain price of £8.99, you can’t go wrong!
