Today’s lippy choice is another of the gorgeous new Rouge Velvet lipsticks from Bourjois, and really, after my previous two reviews on this range, I’m sure this needs no introduction. I just love everything about them and they definitely are one of my favourite lipstick collections that I’ve tried this year.
Today’s shade is a pink rose shade, probably slightly more pink than anything, but once again, the pigment is very good. The opaque coverage gives a gorgeous finish to the lips, and the colour pay off is equally as good too. You only need a very light layer, and the smooth formula is very blendable.
One of the best things about these lipsticks for me however, is the creamy formula. For a matte finish, you really don’t expect them to be as creamy as they are, and you’d be forgiven for thinking they had a satin or cream finish when you first apply it.
However, after a few seconds, the formula dries in to leave a lovely soft matte finish with a super smooth texture that feels so nice to wear. It is moisturising, doesn’t dry out the lips, and the staying power is brilliant.
Several shades have been released in this new collection and I’m pretty sure I’m going to have every single one worn by the end of the year. I already know I’m going to wear these over and over again, and definitely recommend purchasing one to try out.
