When I attended the Bourjois summer event a few weeks ago we were given a gorgeous goody bag containing a few up and coming releases and I was given the shades 08 Grand Cru and 07 Nude-ist! It’s known that i’m just not a lipstick gal, so when easy to apply lip products come out, I tend to snap them up asap. The Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet, matte finish lip products are just those!
The Rouge Edition Velvet’s are so simple and easy to apply, with one finish being just the perfect touch, and the shades and pigmentation being out of this world. 07 Nude-ist is a neutral toned pink, but because my lips are fairly pale and not pigmented at all, this shade is a fun deeper neutral pink than I usually go for, I just can’t get enough of it and it’s always lurking in my bag! 08 Grand Cru is a lovely red that looks deeper in the tube, but is more berry toned, but still beautiful!
I was slightly worried about how it would fare with dry/normal lips and so far, it’s great. I find it doesn’t cling or emphasise any dryness and it doesn’t bleed and once dried it does not budge, I found even drinking wise it barely left tell-tale lipstick marks on the glass!
Have any of you tried the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet’s, what is your favourite shade, what did you think of them? What is your favourite matte finish lip product?
