I had been wanting to get one of the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Liquid Lipsticks for quite a while now, so I when I saw one in the shade ” 10 Don’t pink of it!” I had to get it. Obviously, the first thing that drew my attention to it was the color, a neutral light pink tone that looks so nice especially if you have a pale skin tone. When I fist opened it, I must admit I thought that the applicator wasn’t going to be as good as it actually is, but I found it pretty easy to use and quite precise. However, if you’re looking for very well defined lips, I recommend you use a lip liner first.
The texture is perhaps its strong point – creamy, soft and feathery. It also glides very well and doesn’t dry very quickly, which I think is helpful because you don’t need to hurry when applying it. When I first applied it the lips looked juicy, but after a couple of minutes it started to dry out and I noticed a beautiful velvety finish -not a super matte.
In terms of durability I must say that although one of the promises was that it would hold up to 24 hours, I can’t confirm that’s true. The lipstick lasted quite a while but didn’t survive the final test: mealtime.
All in all, yes, I’d recommend this lipstick to a friend. However, if you have very dry lips, you should prep them well before using this product.
