the perfect lip product

It’s extremely unusual for me to love a product so much that I have to take photos and blog about it within two days; but here we are. 

I first read about this little beauty on Vivianna’s blog and I knew it had to be good if she had raved about it. I’m always after new lip products as I love to wear them so I decided to give this new Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet lipstick a try and I went for this bright red/ pink in Ole Flamingo. 

As soon as I glided this onto my lips I just thought, WOW. It applied in a creamy, almost luxurious way with a gorgeous punch of pigment straight away. It then sets to a lovely matte finish, which is my personal favourite. The true worth of this product is that it really does last HOURS. I put this on at lunch time and it was still on past dinner time; through eating, drinking and showering, there was still an amazing wash of colour. 

I would say this is so powerful as a stain, that you have to be careful when you first apply it as it can transfer onto everything else quite badly. I really think without packaging, this could pass as a higher end product which is obviously why it’s priced at the higher end of the drugstore spectrum.

I have to say that I think I have found the holy grail of lip products. Not only is it a beautiful shade but it has a gorgeous finish and the lasting power is just incredible. I will definitely have to restrain myself to buy more of the collection straight away. 

Has anyone else tried these? 


  1. That looks like it has an absolutely gorgeous finish! Will definitely try it out!


  2. I haven't been at all interested in these until your post popped up. It honestly looks SO good on you. Suppose it's handy that I'm going to Tesco tomorrow and they just happen to sell these ;)

  3. OOoo this looks like such a beautiful finish and like it would stay very velvety on your lips- I'll have to try it!


  4. Not tried this, but the colour looks wonderful, this looks like will be spending my pennies on my next haul. Great post
