My Makeup Collection: Lips

Hey Sweeties,

It’s time to show you all another area of my makeup collection, having already shown you my; foundations, blushers & eyes bringing us now onto, lips. Here goes…

The collection! Note: the glosses in the top left compartment aren’t usually kept there, I’m not that messy 😉

I touched upon my makeup storage a while back now (here) so it’s probably time I did an update post soon, but for the purposes of this post, my collection of lip products are for the most part stored on top of my dressing table in organisers from TK MAXX and Muji.

All the glosses seen in the left on the top organiser are normally kept within my dressing table as I find I hardly use these ones, but they’re still useful to keep on hand for when I do. Essentially my core collection consists of lip liners, lipsticks and a couple of glosses as I will talk you through below.  View Full Post


Oh La La for Bourjois | Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks

Bourjois Rouge edition velvet lipsticks

Hey Sweeties,

I have mentioned these gorgeous liquid lipsticks before but I thought it time to do one definitive post on the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet lipsticks…which I love, love, love!

When I originally mentioned the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet lipsticks back during Blogmas (here), I was reviewing 09 Happy Nude Year, since then I have added Nude-ist, Frambourjoise and Olé Flamingo! to my collection and I doubt it’ll end there.

The difference in colour between 09 Happy Nude Year and 07 Nude-ist is slight but 09 is slightly pinker. Both shades/nudes however are great for when you want to achieve a natural ‘my lips but better’ look and are great for the everyday.

02 Frambourjoise is a fruity red and 05 Olé Flamingo! is an amazing vibrant pink. These two colours particularly really add that pop of colour to a look and if you like a bold(er) lip and don’t want the hassle of a traditional lipstick, these are for you!

The formula of these products are deliciously thick and creamy but what I think is the best thing about these, asides from the great shades, is the durability. Once on, these products do not budge unless you literally wipe it off. Upon application, the product sets as matte before absorbing into the lips leaving them beautifully stained. They differ from normal lipsticks and arguably are somewhat better because you haven’t got to worry about re-application or product on your teeth. For the everyday, these are perfect.

In summary, the Rouge Edition Velvet lipsticks are great quality, great colour and very affordable. Bourjois really have created something incredible here and totally nail the lipstick without the hassle. Bravo!

Until next time x

PS. What do you think of the new photography? The difference a quality camera makes to a post is incredible!
