Liquid Lipsticks have been everywhere for the past few years but some of the most popular ones are really hard to get hold of in the UK and expensive (not to mention sometimes not worth the hype in my opinion). However the ones I am still reaching for are affordable, easy to get hold of and the perfect formula!
The Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvets have been around for a little while but it’s really been over the last year that I have fallen for them. There are beautiful shades for every occasion; from nudes to reds, dark winter berry shades and vibrant summer pinks.
It’s worth pointing out that the word ‘velvet’ is a little confusing and I think it refers to the light, mousse-like feeling when initially applying the product but
once dry they are beautiful on-trend matte shades. They apply with a doe-foot applicator that is really easy to use and leave almost a stain that doesn’t move, feels comfortable and wears really well.
There are so many shades that I really love but Hot Pepper has to be the perfect all-year- round true red, which looks super chic teamed with any outfit although I plan to move onto Grand Cru, which is a dark red, once it starts to get a little colder. For summer I love Honey Mood as it’s a soft but fun peachy shade but the nudes in the range will always have a special place in my heart too- especially Nude-ist and Don’t Pink of it!
If you’re looking for an inexpensive but great quality lipsticks which last all day then I can’t recommend these enough! I love a matte finish but I need it to be comfortable and wearable which these really are, plus their size makes them the perfect handbag must-have.
