Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick

When someone goes on and on about a product so much you KNOW you have to try it.  My friend Kate kept talking about how amazing Bourjois Velvet Lipsticks were that eventually I caved in and bought three shades, 03 Hot Pepper, 07 Nude-ist and 02 Frambourjoise.  I always seem to go for a red, a bright and a neutral/ nude shade although I could have happily chosen more of them.

I like the applicator with these lipsticks, they're really easy to control and feel soft on my lips.  They're extremely pigmented so a little goes a long way.

I actually enjoy the feeling on my lips, they literally feels like velvet, so smooth and soft.  In fact I do have to remind myself that I don't just have a lip balm on and smudge it as that would be a nightmare!

The lasting power on these lipsticks are phenomenal, obviously they will start to wear off if you eat or drink but if you applied straight after then you can expect a good four or five hours wear, perhaps longer!

The bottom line is that this product is fantastic.  I love that even though they're matte they don't dry out my lips.  As the colours are so vibrant you do need to be a little careful not to smudge them at first but once it's completely dried onto them it's absolutely fine.  If you like colour, you'll love these!
