Holiday Lipstick Buys from Bourjois

IMG_0243

With my trip to Florida drawing near, I'd been on the lookout for some lip products that I could take with me without risk of them melting in my bag during the day. Thankfully, I found them in the form of Bourjois' Rouge Edition Aqua Lacque and Velvet lipsticks. I was originally just going to buy a couple from the Aqua Lacque range, but Boots were offering 3 for 2 so I opted for one of the Velvet finishes too.

The Aqua Lacque lipsticks are describes as having a "mirror-like shine, intense colour and 10hr hydration." I have previously posted about the Dior Fluid Sticks, and find these very comparable. They have a slightly watery texture and feel cooling when applied to the lips, leaving a gloss like finish with the pigmentation of a lipstick. Wear time isn't all that long, maybe a couple of hours, but they're easy enough to reapply on the go due to their handbag friendly size. I have the shades 03 Brun'croyable and 04 Viens si tu Roses. The former is a brown toned red, while Viens si tu Roses leans more of a rosy pink.

I was also surprisingly impressed with the Rouge Edition Velvet lipstick. I was expecting it to be one of those matte lipsticks that dehydrate your lips and cling to dry patches you never even knew existed, but once applied it retains a smooth consistency and provides even coverage. I picked up the shade Nude-ist, which is more of a warm pink than a nude.

I can see the Aqua Lacque lipsticks becoming incredibly popular now that we're transitioning into the Spring and Summer months. They're definitely worth a try!

  2. Love the look of these new additions! I have one of the velvet lip lacquers and the formuia is amazing, so hopefully these are just as good

  5. You can never beat a good Boots 3 for 2, can you? I love the formulation of the Velvet lipsticks! Mine's in a hard to wear colour though, so I'll definitely keep a look out for Nude-ist as it looks like such a nice shade. I can't wait to try out the Aqua range either :)

    1. In all honesty I don't pick much up from Boots anymore, but a 3 for 2 does help sway me a little!
