One of my long-time favourite You Tubers is Gabriella (Velvetgh0st), and during one of her recent videos, she was doing a full-face of Bourjois makeup including the Bourjois Rouge Velvet Lipsticks, of which there are around 16 gorgeous on-trend shades to choose from. The finish of the lipstick looked so flawless on Gabriella that I knew I had to order a few of the colours to try out for myself.
The Bourjois Rouge Velvet Lipstick gives a highly pigmented matte finish that lasts up to 24 Hours, which are smudge-proof and don’t dry out the lips like some lipsticks often can do. The lipsticks have a high definition guided tear drop tip to give you precise application, so you can line the lips before filling them in.
Even though they give a matte finish, they don’t feel dry or uncomfortable on the lips, and still have a hint of shine when applied to the lips. The secret of the exclusive formula is a moisturising complex that combines hydrating waxes with light oils and rich pigments for a velvety soft finish. The lipsticks are so pigmented that one sweep on the lips is all you need for a full colour, fabulous finish.
Onto the colours I chose…
06: Abrico’dabra! A sweet and fresh peach to give a bright pop of colour.
12: Brunette: A dark brown with a red undertone, which would be extra perfect for Autumn.
13: Nohalicious: A rich pinky nude for a great everyday yet glam look.
15: Peach Tatin: A very pretty, Spring-like peachy nude.
16: Caramelody: A warm, caramel nude - think like a Kardashian!
I think my favourites from the five I chose have to be Peach Tatin, because I am loving peach shades of makeup right now, and Caramelody as it is the perfect nude shade, for day right through to evening.
The Bourjois Rouge Velvet Lipsticks cost £8.99 each and are available instore and online at retailers such as Boots.
