I have raved about Bourjois Rouge Velvet lipsticks many, many times before and I just cannot get enough of the formula! I was very happy when they recently released a Nude-ist shade, much appropriate for smoky eye and those 'no make up make up days'. At their Christmas press day I spotted another nude shade. Happy Nude Year* has the most gorgeous pinky nude colour and it is simply perfect. I love how it glides smoothly on my lips giving natural and very girly look. It has currently a firm spot in my make up bag and I carry it literally everywhere.

What do you think of this shade?

  1. I'm still not sure what I think about it. I thought that it would look more nude-pinkish on my lips, but it looks quite bright and more like a coral-pinky shade.
    But I do love the formula of these :)

  2. I have different shade but mine stinks so bad! And application is painful!

    1. Really? :( I think they have this lipstick-like scent, and I love application, it's so smooth for me.

  3. This is such a pretty colour! And your photography is gorgeous too. I've never tried these, but I've heard a lot of praise for them.

  4. As much as I'm loving experimenting with darker colours at the moment, I'll always revert back to my trusty pinky nudes. This one looks so pretty.

    1. I also love wearing darker shades for autumn and winter, but I've been wearing smoky eyes a lot lately and it'd be too much. ;) X

    1. Oh yes I know what you mean, I love nude shades but sometimes I can look too corpse-like. ;)

  8. I have this and it's one of few nude shades I quite enjoy wearing. Whilst I prefer a bright red/pink lip this is nice for days when I just can't be bothered with the effort of maintenance.

  11. This looks like a lovely shade on you. I try a bold lip every now and then, but always come back to the nudes and naturals.
