Of the high street brands on sale in the UK there are a couple that consistently excite me with new launches and one of those is Bourjois. Without fail, each year they launch something new and exciting and more often than not they’re one of the first to market for something new or something that’s been seen in the high-end market but not yet from an affordable brand. This post is just one dose of new-ness from Bourjois, in the shame of their new Rouge Edition Velvet lip creams * (or Bourjois Rouge Velvet for short) – a liquid lip colour, that’s highly pigmented and dries to a more matte finish on the lips.
The shades above (L-R in all shots) are: 02, 06, 03 and 07. My favourites have to be 06 – the bright, blue-toned pink and 03 – the orange toned red. Both amazing bright shades that leave a gorgeous shade on the lips that just screams Spring/Summer. The shade 02 is also very pretty, quite a classic bright red – slightly more pinky toned than solid classic red but very universally wearable. Then there’s shade 7 that’s one of those rosey pink ones that not everyone loves but can be very flattering and more natural looking than pale pink shades on the lips.
But in my book, it’s the statement colours that are the winners from this collection – absolutely loving 06 and 03. I do sort of wish they had catchy names, but there we go!
*Update* They do have names! I was having a blonde moment as labels were missing on three of the four – but they’re called 02 Frambourjoise, 06 Ping Pong, 03 Hot Pepper, 07 Nude-ist. Thank you to Sabina for the heads up
What do you think of this exciting new launch from Bourjois? I suspect this may be the beginning of a bit of a lip-cream/stain trend in the highstreet beauty world – so excited to see what comes next!
