As a massive fan of a matte lip, I was super excited to try out the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet lipstick in Frambourjoise*! I'd been wanting to introduce some colour into my life and having been lucky enough to receive a few of these in a goody bag at an event, I made sure I got stuck in and gave it a go.

There are eight shades in the Rouge Edition Velvet line, and the lipsticks have a lightweight texture and provide an intense colour pay off. One of the things I really like about the them is that they're a sort of lipstick/gloss hybrid. They apply like a gloss with the wand applicator and dry to a vibrant matte finish like a lipstick.

I find the best way to apply for an even coverage is to apply in two layers. I apply one layer, and run a clean finger over it to make sure it's evenly distributed and then go back in with the wand to seal the deal. Be warned, it is a bit of a stainer on the lips so if you go outside your lip line or smooth it out with your finger, make sure you clean that up sooner rather than later.

In terms of wear-ability, I find the colour works well with my pale skin tone, and i'll even go as far to say that I've found my new red.

It's certainly one i'll be adding to my main collection, and when I build up the courage to wear more bright lipsticks out of the house, this will be one i'll be reaching for.

Have you tried any of the Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks? I'd love to hear your thoughts! Let me know in the comments.

  2. I just picked up Ole Flamingo and Peach Club recently from the range and LOVE them. Most Matte products dry my lips out awfully but these really are 'velvety'.
