Simply Lippy Challenge Day 291 | Bourjois Rouge Velvet The Lipstick in Shade 03, Hyppink Chic

If you’ve been following social media lately, I’m sure you’ve already come across this new lipstick collection from Bourjois which has just been released. Of course any new lipstick launch gets me excited, but all the great reviews accompanying this particular one, meant I just had to rush out, buy it and put it to the test.


I’ve had a love/hate relationship with Bourjois lip products over the years, even throughout the challenge I’ve had some mixed experiences, but after wearing this for just one day so far, I already know it’s my favourite Bourjois lippy that I’ve tried.


The most surprising, and best thing, about this lipstick is the almost duo element that it has. When you first apply it, it feels every inch a cream finish formula; it is hydrating, moisturising and feels very soft to wear.


However, give it a few minutes and it starts to dry in taking on a matte finish that feels quite velvety. Because the finish becomes matte, it means the staying power is much better than you inititially expect and I was very pleasantly surprised by how well this wore during the day.


I didn’t need to reapply it much at all, and it didn’t flake or crack after eating and drinking for example. More importantly, my lips felt very smooth all day and even the matte element didn’t dry them out.


The shade is what I would describe as a pink rose shade; it is soft with a neutral undertone making it a very versatile shade for any time of year.


I like it for so many reasons and will definitely be wearing it again once my challenge is over. Plus, the collection has a range of shades so I’m very excited to try those out too.
