DRUGSTORE FAVOURITES - BOURJOIS VELVET EDITION

Apr 18, 2015

I have talked about these liquid lipsticks so many times on my blog, but I never showed you my collection or swactched these amazing products. I said amazing because they are hands down my favourite drugtore lip products. Matte lips at an affordable price? Who's not liking that? First, I really like Bourjois as a brand, I think they have good quality products, nice packaging and always come up with the funniest and cutest for their products. At least, being a frenchy, I found the name of these lipsticks pretty funny. About the formula, I would say it is long lasting, not patchy (but it depends on the shade as you will see later) and quite easy to apply. The scent of these lipstick is honestly the only con. It smells a little like ... paint? Other than that, the colors are really vibrant and they have shades that will match almost any complexion.

Here are a little description of the different shades I own. I have six shades, but there is a total of twelve shades now they came up with a few new pink colors for spring.

1 - Frambourjoise is a good colour for all of the girls who don't feel like wearing red but want something a bit deeper than pink. It is definetly a good compromise between a deep red and a more muted pink. A kind of pinky red that would look really lovely for spring.

2 - Hot Pepper
 is an orangy red. Let's say it is the perfect red for spring and summer. I love those kind of red tones on tan skins. Once again really pigmented and easy to apply, you've seen it quite often on the blog since it has been on of my favourite red lipsticks.

3 - Olé Flamingo 
is my last purchase and is now definetly my favourite. It is a bright pink, but it doesn't have as much blue as Pink Pong (description down below) which makes it in my opinion a little bit more wearable on a daily basis.

4 - Pink Pong is the very first shade I got. Quite a surprising shade, since I usually go for more wearable shades when I first try a new range of lipstick. But surprisingly I really like it. It is a cool toned pink, very very bright, I would say almost neon. I would definetly pair it with a simple eye make up look to not look like a human Barbie doll.

5 - Nudist was the only nude of the collection when they first released it. You can know found a new one named Happy Nude Year, and a brown nude called Beau Brun in the range. Anyway, at that time, I got Nudist and it quickly became one of my most worn lip product. It was just a good option for me, long lasting nude, perfect for long days at university when I felt just too lazy to reapply. The color is really natural. I would say it is a coraly-pink with a touch of brown.

6 - Grand Cru well what can I say. I was pretty excited about this color, and the color of course is not deceiving. It is a burgundy red, fall best friend, really lovely. But that color is so much harder to apply than the other one. I don't know why, maybe the formula is a little different, but this color is a bit patchy, and it is harder to work with and it takes much longer to get a lovely finish.

  1. Really want to try the shade Nudist, and all the colours are so stunning! Suprisingly, I have never actually tried any of the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvets, I'm not usually a fan of mattes. But I think I will have to pick something up soon! Great post! xx

  9. These are beautiful products, I love matte lips :) Unfortunately, Bourjois is so difficult to get here in Canada, and the prices rival high end brands!
