Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet

 In honour of this weeks chat about National Lipstick Day I wanted to talk about a couple of liquid lipsticks that had recently made their way into my collection after much blogger hype.

Now usually I like to take this kind of hysteria with a pinch of salt but I couldn't help feel a little bit excited about the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvets as I'm absolute sucker for a matte lip. I picked up a couple of shades that I thought were most different to things I already had in my collection - Olé Flamingo and Nude-ist. I was surprised at how smoothly the liquid formula applies and the brush is perfect for the purpose. They are fairly quick drying and feel really soft at first on the lips. Nude-ist is a really buildable colour looking really different after two coats where as Flamingo is a really full coverage. The Flamingo is so fresh and bright but sadly that hasn't shown up on these photos - think FUSCHIA! 

After a day of eating, drinking and generally living I couldn't believe the lipsticks went the distance and with minimal smudging or reapplying. I actually found reapplying made the texture very odd and less comfortable on the lips. That would be my only criticism but it might be that I'm not used to think kind of product. 

I can honestly say these little babies outshined my expectations to the point where I definitely would have expected them from a drugstore brand. 

Have you tried these liquid lipsticks yet? I'm definitely sold and I want it in every colour! I think these might be my holy grail lip product.
