(Rouge Edition Velvet - 12.49€)This Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet lipstick is one of my favourite purchases from the last few months. I initially didn't want to give into the hype and rush out and buy one buuut this one just called out to me on the newly stocked Bourjois stand in Boots. 'Buy me Jess, you need me' it whispered to me as I walked up and down the make up aisle.. That definitely happened. I swear..
I also recommend using a lip liner to help with applying because of how liquidy it is. It has a tendency to bleed out over the lips and you end up looking like you have a wonky mouth. I've learned to perfect my application by applying a little at a time, focusing the main amount of product on the centre of my lip to create an ombre effect.
It's so insanely pigmented though. The first time I used it I was a little scared. I knew it would be intense but I wasn't expecting it to be so outrageously bright. I love it. Really livens up a simple day time make up look. Not the shade for a day at work however, but perfect for lunch with the girls.
The final finish is the best part. It matteifies (real word? probably not) and looks really chic. It doesn't dry out your lips and they feel really soft and smooth. Like you're not even wearing a lipstick. It's brilliant.
It has the colour pay off of a lip tint but the smoothness of a lip balm.
It lasts quite well throughout the day and doesn't transfer onto cups and stuff which is brilliant - gotta love that matte finish. On a recent night out I only had to touch it up once and only because I wanted to build up the colour.
