Bourjois Rouge Velvet The Lipstick | Review

bourjois velvet the lipstick
Hi Darlings!

If you are a follower of my blog you might know how much I love lipsticks ( I have lost count, whoops). I was so bloody excited when I got chosen to review a vox box by Bourjois! It is the first time I have been give so many lipsticks at once but trust me lovelies, I almost screamed with excitement when I got these 12 lipsticks in the mail, I didn't know where to start because don't they all just look so darn beautiful.

The lipsticks come in a variety of different shades from nudes to a dark brow shade. I just love the formulation of these because they apply like a super soft lip balm but dry like a matte lipstick which is brilliant considering so many matte lipsticks are a pain in the ass to apply, its like dragging an eraser half of the time with most matte lipsticks. This dries within moments of applying and once it does it stays in place ALL DAY which is pretty impressive since they only cost £8.99 each. 

Even though I love these lipsticks sometimes they can feel a little drying so I like to apply a lip scrub beforehand so my lips are soft and ready for a lipstick.

They are 12 lipsticks as I said above and they come in a lovely selection of shades which I will tell you more about below with some swatches

Hey Nude! - I am not a fan of nude lipsticks but this one looks very nice and very wearable for everyday wear.

Flaming Rose - This is similar to the above shade but with a more pinkish hue but as I said above not a fan of nudes.

Hyppink Chic - One of my favourites; this is lovely deep pink

Hip Hip Pink - Haha I love the name of this one! This is a beautiful coral red shade and I just love it personally.

Brique-A-Brac - This is such a nice reddish brown shade, I could defiantly wear this most days

Abrico-Dabrail - A fresh and sweet peach shade that helps brighten up a look, I love this when I wear pink it goes so well.

Joli-Carmin-ois - A lovely red with orange undertones, perfect to brighten a makeup look simply and quickly

Rubi's Cute - A timeless and a very retro red! has to be a favourite because I wear red lipstick most days.

Fuschia Botte - A beautiful fuchsia shade with blue tones that is perfect for all year round

Magni Fig - A divine deep and intense deep purple, I just love how bright and beautiful this shade actually is.

Berry Formidable - A deep burgundy shade which I am wearing in the above picture, it has to be one of the faves because its just perfect for autumn.

Brunette - A dark brown with red undertones, this is just beautiful and a new shade thats been added to my collection.

I just love this collection of lipsticks from Bourjois and I am so glad that I was lucky enough to try them all. I would recommend to anyone who love matte lipsticks and are also looking for sometime that is long lasting and very purse friendly too.

You can buy the rouge velvet lipsticks at either Superdrug or Boots and they
 cost around £8.99 each
