Bourjois are a brand that I find myself going back to more & more recently, with their Rice Powder being in my top drugstore powders & the Chocolate Bronzer being the first bronzer to ever touch my pale cheeks I've got a lot of trust in the brand when it comes to trying out new products! They seem to be my main go to brand when it comes to bases & I haven't really dipped into any of their lip product offerings until there was recently a 3 for 2 which provided me with the perfect opportunity. I already had a Bourjois foundation & powder in my basket so it made sense to choose a lipstick & try something new & this is when I welcomed the Rough Edition Velvet lipstick in the shade 'Grand Cru' into my life.
I'm all about the berry tones when it comes to lip products so when I noticed it on the shelves I knew it was the shade for me. When applied it's definitely more of a pink toned berry colour rather than the usual purple hues found in berry shades but in my opinion this just makes it more wearable as purple lipsticks can sometimes be a bit harsh for an everyday makeup look! It can be built up though to create a stronger, more vampy appearance. It goes on as though it is a lip gloss yet has the same staying power as a matte lipstick but manages to avoid that dry feeling matte products can have. It's the smoothest, softest lip product I've ever worn & I can see why Bourjois popped the word Velvet into it's name!
Have you tried any of the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks?
