irish beauty blogMyself and the Rouge Edition Velvets go way back! They’re one of my favourite liquid lip formulas. However, as much as I love liquid lipstick for it’s longevity, it’s not always the most comfortable formula to wear. This is where the new Bourjois Rouge Velvet The Lipstick comes in.

Bourjois Rouge Velvet The Lipstick

I wasn’t in the market for more lipstick, I have to be honest. I have ALOT. And most of the time when new collections come out, they are in the same standard colour ways to all of the other lipstick collections. This makes it hard for me to splurge and buy more than one for review purposes. But so many people have been saying such good things about the Bourjois Rouge Velvet The Lipstick formula. I couldn’t resist. I was also lucky to pick up fives shades from my awesome friends in Siopaella. They often have deadly beauty deals in their Cecilia street store.Bourjois Rouge Velvet The Lipstick

Not to sound dramatic or anything, but I am pretty blown away by the formula of these lipsticks. They are so soft and buttery and so bloody pigmented from the first swipe. Pictures are all well and good most of the time, but I wanted to capture the formula at work in video form too. So have a click here to see them in action on the lips.

I have quick arm swatches here too and close ups of the colours so all angles are covered 🙂

The bullet of the lipsticks is a tear shape which (in theory), makes it easier to hug the lips. Although you’ll see in the video, I have a tough time keeping the lipstick within my lip line. They’re just so darn pigmented!
