Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet: Review and Swatches

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Bourjois Rouge Velvet Bourjois Rouge Velvet Swatch Bourjois Rouge Velvet Swatches Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in 03 Hot Pepper, 04 Peach Club and 06 Pink Pong €12.49/£8.99.

Matte lip lovers be prepared to meet the new Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet! Eight vibrant, long wearing (24H!) matte shades will be available starting April in selected pharmacies, guaranteed to take the statement lip to the next level.

I am amazed by the longevity, yes true that 24H is a bit of an exaggeration, but i can vouch that the Peach Club was on my lips the whole time i enjoyed a mud pie cake with the girls and long after. Super soft, light weight and uber pigmented – what else would you need from a lip stain. The only warning is that make sure your lips are in tip top condition, the combination of matte finish and long lasting wear means it will dry out your lips which, i guess its expected from a lip stain.

My favorite is Pink Pong, what’s yours?

    Loving that #3 there:) Such a cheery orange red – although I might already have one or two like it :p

    You can never have enough corals and reds though :)).

    Number three looks fab but I’m not convinced! It looks like a lipgloss but acts like lipstick? I’ll have to try it out!

    Not a lip gloss for sure, more a very long lasting lip cream that fades away to a stain and lasts forever. The shine is just fresh application, it dries out quickly to an elegant matte. I should’ve probably let it dry longer…

    Cat de frumos arata <3, velvet 06 imi place cum arata doar ca nu sunt sigura ca as avea curajul necesar sa si port nuanta pe buze.
    Am vazut ca a fost si la noi o campanie cand au fost lansate, dar din pacate I didn't make it on the list :))

    Asa eram si eu inainte Kitty, nu purtam decat nudes :). Insa curaj, gaseste-ti culoarea care te avantajeaza si poarta-o cu mandrie.

    Gorgeous review! They all look gorgeous. Are they very drying? How would they compare to Rimmel’s Apocalips do you know? They’re beautiful, so bright.

    Thank you! Similar consistency to the Apocalips, only that they feel lighter on the lips and have no after taste. Quite drying so you need to apply them to conditioned lips, great for when you dont have time to retouch.

    I’m such a wuss when it comes to strong colour on my lips but these look very high end and good quality
