Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick Review

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick 05 Ole Flamingo! £8.99 for 6.7ml

Released earlier this year, these Velvet Lipsticks (Liquid lipsticks) from Bourjois are seriously impressive. A liquid formula but delivering the most velvety matte feel and finish you can imagine.

These aren't the first liquid lipsticks on the market but I feel they are the best. Opaque in one sweep, so so so velvety, pleasantly scented, available in a great range of shades and they have an incredible lasting power.

With Autumn around the corner (when I start wearing berry toned lipsticks) the shade 05 Ole Flamingo! jumped out at me. I also went for this due to the matte finish. And wow, It does not disappoint. It is a gorgeous colour that looks stunning against pale skin as well as against darker skin. The best bit? It doesn't budge. These Velvet lipsticks aren't marketed as a stain but I would say they do stain the lips and do not budge - a huuuuuge thumbs up from me.

The doe foot applicator ensures easy application too. I use the pointy part to outline my lips then fill the rest of the lips in with the main part.

Here is how it looks on with one coat (taking a photo of your lips is deceptively hard!)...

There are eight shades available but I suggest going bright if you are going to get one of these (or two or three) as you will get full appreciation of their pigmentation and longevity.

You can buy the Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks from Superdrug or here from Boots and they currently have a 3 for 2 offer on so you could try a few?! I feel £8.99 is quite pricey so that's a great deal if you have your eye on a few shades.

I highly recommend trying these lipsticks as they are easy to apply, you don't need to touch them up and they give a gorgeous matte finish but are not drying in the slightest.
 I know I will be picking up another one (or two!)

Have you tried these yet? 

Which shade do you have your eye on?

Leave me a comment and let me know.
