First Impressions: Bourjois "Rouge Edition" Lipstick

Thursday 11 April 2013

Bourjois recently released 6 new lipglosses in Australia. I own two of their lipsticks, but haven't really used them that much, so I wasn't sure what to expect.

I love the packaging. It's simple, but classic. I also love that you can see what colours they are, as other Bourjois lipsticks all look the same and you can't easily see what the colour is.

I picked up numbers 13 and 07. These were my two favourite colours. Since I wasn't quite sure what the formula was like and how they would perform, I didn't want to buy too many, just incase I didn't like them. 

13 is a beautiful red, and 07 is a gorgeous bright Barbie pink.

The consistency is so incredibly smooth. It's also really moisturising on my lips and I didn't feel the need to apply a lip balm for a good 3-4 hours. While I was trialling the lipstick, I also put it to the test when it came to eating. I found that it lasted 3-4 hours before wearing off. 

I loved that it stayed slightly glossy, even after an hour or so after applying it. It's not like a lipgloss gloss but just looks freshly applied, even though you haven't. 

I've fallen in love with these and will be buying more!! 

Priceline are selling them for $10 on sale at them moment. They are normally $19 in Australia. Run to get them before they sell out! 

In the UK there are more colours. You can see swatches of 16 shades here

Have you picked up any of the new range?

  3. Great review, lovely. Number 7 is REALLY calling to me, I love it!

  4. I'm impressed by the pigmentation. I will have a swatch next time I visit Priceline!

  5. I have 4 and 12. I'm really impressed with them, definitely agree with your review! I just wish all the colours were available here.
