For those that have been following my blog for a while now, you’ll remember that I wrote about the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet liquid lipsticks last year (post here), and I thought I would do a little update post. Last year at the time of writing I owned I think four, I now own eight because for me, they are still my favourite liquid lipsticks on the high street.
The shades I have in my collection:
02 Frambourjoise – This is a lovely, very wearable everyday pinky-red, beautiful for the summer months.
04 Peach Club – An orange-coral toned lipstick, this is a wonderful summery shade but quite bright on the lips so not for those who are seeking something more subtle.
05 Olé Flamingo – If you like your vibrant pinks, this is for you.
07 Nude-ist – Along with Happy Nude Year, I reach for this shade the most although this shade is slightly darker in tone. Nude shades are great when you want to just enhance your everyday lip colour (hence the nude), without adding too much colour.
08 Grand Cru – A gorgeous dark red, a staple of any collection I think.
09 Happy Nude Year – I reviewed this one separately way back here, still one of my most reached for every day shades.
10 Don’t Pink of It – I dismissed this shade initially whenever I was browsing the stand in store for thinking it too similar to Happy Nude Year and Nude-ist. However, when I was working with my friend to come up with a look for my wedding day, she had Don’t Pink of It in her collection and although it didn’t quite work with my wedding make-up look, I loved it. Although the image below isn’t wholly clear, Don’t Pink of It is a light pink (duh!) and lighter in shade than Happy Nude Year and Nude-ist, and ideal for summer.
14 Plum Plum Girl – This is my most recent purchase and it took me weeks to track it down; for some reason every Boots and Superdrug I went into had sold out of it. To be honest, I thought it would be darker in shade than it is, but that’s no bad thing. I thought it would be a liquid version (and slightly lighter) of MAC’s Smoked Purple lipstick (review here), but actually, it’s much less autumnal but a more everyday wearable berry lip.
In case you haven’t yet had the opportunity to try these liquid lipsticks out for yourself, you need to. Why?
- Application -easy!
- Durability -once applied, these do not budge and last all day.
- Shade range
- Formula -soft and creamy, matte and non-drying.
The above are surely the five things you look for in a good quality lipstick?
What’s your favourite shade?
