Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Matte Finish


This is one of the best lip products I’ve ever used.

This product last much longer than any lipstick (I’m not even sure if we can call it a lipstick) I have tried. A big plus: ten minutes after putting it on, I have completly forgetten that it is on my lips.

All I ask of a matte lipstick is that it stays on while I’m having a glass of wine, dinner, or a cigarette (yes, I’m French and I smoke – it’s a massive cliché).

And this baby does the job perfectly.

This product comes in a rectangular clear tube with a flat applicator. The lipstick is easily visible through the plastic, and the lid is also the colour of the shade. You can trust it: it will be exactly the same color on your lips.

The colours in the range include four reds (both cool and warm), two bright pinks, a peach and two mauvy/pink nudes.

I own

  • ‘Frambourgoise’ is pink-ish
  • ‘Hot Pepper’ is a lovely poppy-red
  • ‘Grand Cru’ is a nice red-ish burgundy

The smell is not great, but this is quickly forgotten.

Buy it! Quickly!
