Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Review

I know these lip products came out ages ago, but i wanted to thoroughly test them out before i did my review.

I am a huge fan of liquid lipsticks, and picked up 4 shades from the range: 05 Ole Flamingo, 07 Nude-ist, 10 Don't Pink Of It and 12 Beau Brun.

The formula was a bit different to what i was expecting, and had a gel like feeling when applied to the lips. It does take a few seconds for it to set on the lips, and sometime i apply another layer depending on how bold i want my lips.

It isn't completely matte when it sets on the lips and does have a velvet feeling. I like the velvet finish, because it doesn't dry out my lips, however i do find that certain shades can move around when eating and drinking. Nude-ist moves around quite a bit, so i have to be pretty wary when i'm out for dinner, but it's actually my favourite shade out of the 4 that i have!

For a drugstore liquid lipstick, i am pretty happy with these. I think i will be wearing a lot of Ole Flamingo when the weather gets hotter, as i think it's the perfect shade for that time of year.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks retail at £8.99 and are available HERE.

Have you tried these yet?

    I really hated the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet. There has been so much hype over these so I though I would treat myself last year during Christmas. Although I only bought one colour - Grand Cru, I really didn't like it. The texture was slimy and gave a really poor colour pay off plus the smell was so disgusting and chemically, it made me feel sick. Did you notice the smell?

  2. I saw liquid lipsticks appearing out of a variety of brands but haven't actually tried any out. I might though since you seem to like them so much. (I always assumed they were lip gloss under a different name haha thank you for debunking that mindset)

    I am definitely impressed with these and think I have seen the brand in my local drugstore so gotta double check. Need the Flamingo and pink one in my life. Lol
