I waited impatiently for this Bourjois release, literally counting the days to find it in Boots and Superdrug. After swatching all available shades, I've settled on these two Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet lipsticks in 05 Olé Flamingo! and 06 Pink Pong. However, I also want to get a red shade 01 Personne Ne Rouge and 07 Nude-ist, but I've found the latter one only on the blogs which were sent the lipsticks from the PRs, to review ahead of the launch! I searched all Boots and Superdrug stores in central London, asked Bourjois on Twitter, but I have no answer to when and even if this shade will become available - super annoying! If you will spot it somewhere - please let me know! (Just a follow up info: Bourjois responded to my tweet and shade 07 Nude-ist is set to launch in July.)
The formula of this liquid lipsticks is very light and velvet. It creates perfect matte and statement pout which doesn't smudge and the applicator is a dream to use - glides on the lips. I simply love it! When I am not in the mood to go out there with the colour of my lips and prefer something more subtle, I simply use my fingertips to dab some colour on. On the swatches they look quite glossy because of the flash, but I assure you that in real life they have this amazing super-matte finish. 05 Olé Flamingo! has great coral undertones and will look perfect with a tan, while 06 Pink Pong is all pink and bold.
Which shade do you prefer?
