So, as you might have seen in my last post here. I hauled some Bourjois products in Boots. They are currently doing 3 for 2 and I took full advantage 🙂
I love the Bourjois brand overall, but some products for me can be hit or miss. However, their Rouge Edition Velvet matte liquid lipsticks are probably one of my ride or die matte lip formulas. And for some reason, I have never done a proper review of them. Since I bought two shades last week (as well as a new mascara), I thought I would show you the colours as well as the formula in action. And, give you my first impressions of their new Volume Reveal mascara in waterproof. I have seen alot of good things about this mascara online so I thought I would add my thoughts into the mix.
The two shades of the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvets I picked up are:
08 Grand Cru which I thought was more of a deep matte red off the bat. It comes off as a brighter red on the lips though.
Then we have 14 Plum Plum Girl which is a matte plum shade.
I will say although both of these dry down to a matte finish, the formula itself doesn’t dry down completely unless you wait for every layer to dry completely. I do love the texture and the finish of them though. They last well and fade leaving a stain behind. The colour range is great too. The Rouge Edition Velvets retail for €12.99. You can get them in store or online from Boots here.
My other purchase was of course the Volume Reveal Waterproof Mascara.
It comes with a x3 zoom mirror on the side of the tube. Not sure if I would get much use of it. But you never know 🙂
It has a quite a large plastic spooley.
The formula itself is thick and dries very quickly. You can layer it but you have to work fast. It definitely does give plenty of volume to the lashes though.
Not as much curl as I would usually like, but it is more of a voluminous formula. And it’s fair to say it does what it says on the tin 🙂
The Volume reveal comes in non waterproof and waterproof and retails for €13.99 again in Boots in store or online here.
And that’s my 3 for 2 Bourjois haul done! Let me know if you like this type of show and tell. I would love your feedback 🙂
