Beauty | Bourjois Rouge Velvet Lipstick

July 19, 2014

Okay, so ya’ll know by now that red lipsticks are kinda a big thing with me. I’ve rocked one ever since I left school and was able to wear a little bit more make-up. When the Rimmel Apocalips were released what seems like a century ago, it was my real first introduction to a long wearing liquid formula lipstick – and I bloomin’ loved them! Earlier this year, Bourjois released their take on the liquid lipstick so I thought I’d give one a whirl.

First things first, cute and simple packaging, just how I like it! The bottle shows the shade well and they are not too big so perfect for popping in to your handbag. When I tried the Apocalips last year, I found that they applied really easily and I couldn’t pick a fault with them. However, I had a real struggle applying this to my lips. I found that I could not fill my lip shape in correctly and the edge of my lips were a bit ‘blobby’ and uneven. If a mistake was made (which did occur!) I found that it was super hard to correct as it dried so fast and I ended up smudging it all over my face. I was disappointed with the result so I applied a MAC Lipstick over the top; At least when that began to wear off, I had some sort of red stain underneath. I suppose that shows that it is long wearing. But I just couldn’t quite get used to the smell …

Bit a negative ninny today aren’t I? Just sharing my opinion and sometimes I think it’s good to hear something a bit different rather than hearing that everything is amazing. Have you tried this release? What were your thoughts? Let me know in the comments, thanks for reading!
