When I received a box of twelve Bourjois Rouge Velvet The Lipsticks, complimentary of Bourjois and Influenster, I couldn’t have been more excited to try them all out! Every single shade appealed to me and I just didn’t know where to begin!
The packaging for these lipsticks is simple but elegant and they have a very secure closing lid which clicks loudly so you can guarantee it won’t come off on your travels and in your bag.
The Rouge Velvet lipsticks have a matte finish – but the thing I love about them is that they go on in a creamy, almost typical lipstick formula and then dry down to a matte finish. It’s like magic!
After trying the lipsticks for a few days now, I can say that they are non-drying and very comfortable to wear. They last for a few hours but the real test is when you eat. I wouldn’t say that they last very well through a meal, only a small amount of colour remains.
My favourite shade is ‘Brunette’, the darkest of the collection. Watch the video below for swatches and names of all the lipsticks.
I was MUA to Kitty Clements this week, on a shoot with the amazing Oliver Lall and I used one of these on her. We went for the shade ‘Fuchsia Botte’ as Oliver wanted a blue and pink theme (more about this in a separate post soon!). The colour looked fab and here’s a sneak peek from the shoot…
