Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipsticks

Since I have a love for lipsticks I was very excited to hear that Bourjois had realised a new range of 18 lipsticks called Rouge Edition*. Divided into three categories; Preppy, Colour Block and Night out they range from pale beiges, bright pinks, deep reds and dark browns, there is a shade for everyone!

Preppy is a range of lighter, everyday more subtle shades, the two that caught my eye were Beige Trench and Rose Tweed. (Left to right, Top to bottom)
02. Beige Trench
Less can be more and this lipstick is a perfect example. It is a perfect easy to wear, everyday nude  beige. It applied beautifully although it is slightly more purple tones than the beiges I usually go for.
04. Rose Tweed 
A very elegant and slightly pinker nude, this could easily become a handbag essential!

 Colour Block
The colour blog range is very bright, perfect for the summer or simply adding some colour to winter days. I chose Fuchsia Graffiti, Rose Studio, Rouge Buzz, Fraise Remix and Rose Neon (Left to right, top to bottom)
07 Fushia Graffiti
This is an electric blue fuchsia shade which isn’t for the faint hearted! It has a slight blue shimmer in it which although isn’t overly noticeable really spoils the colour for me and means it is probably my least favourite shade out of the 12 I have.
08 Rose Studio

 A very true simple pink, still very bright but a shade I will get lots of wear from.
10 Rouge Buzz
A very loud neon orangey-red which is like nothing I own, perfect if you like orange reds.
11. Fraise Remix
This one caught my eye more than any other, a beautiful slightly milky pink leaning towards the yellow side.
12 Rose Neon
A bubblegum pink shade with blue tones, the perfect barbie colour

Night Out
The night out range is as you would expect darker, more glamorous and more red based than the others. I have Rouge Jet Set, Pretty Prune, Rouge podium, Brun Cosmopolitan and Rose Millesime (Left to Right, Top to bottom)
13 Rouge Jet Set
A true red with slight hints of blue, very glamorous shade and a great red to have!
14 Pretty Prune
I really hate the name, prune, really?! But it is a lovely plumy red shade.
15 Rouge Podium
A bright deep red with a really slight orange tone.
16 Brun Cosmopolitan
A dark and elegant chocolate colour, much easier to wear than the similar matte shades which are currently out
17 Rose Millesime
Not too sure how this shade fits the ‘Night out’ section but I guess it would be a nice shade with a darker eye. It is a light and very romantic pink, great for day and night.

I am very surprised about the how nice they feel on the lips, 12 lipsticks later and my lips actually didn’t feel too bad! They have Orchid Blossom Extract which is suppose to keep lips hydrated for 10 hours and although I don’t think they’ll last 10 hours they are surprisingly moisturising. There are some real beauties in this range and I would recommend having a look in store. They are all really pigmented although you could sheer most of them out if they are a little too bright (this does range slightly depending on the shade). Stand out shades for me are Rose Millesime, Fraise Remix and the two preppy shades although I am sure in a few weeks after having more of a play with them I’ll find some new loves from the range.

Lipsticks retail for £7.99 with Selfridges selling the range before it goes nationwide in February.

Which shade has caught your eye? Which do you prefer preppy, night out or colour block?

    2, 4 and 8 are my favourites. Such a beautifully written blog post! Thanks for sharing with us 🙂 Now I know which ones to buy!

  27. 26th February 2014 / 1:31 pm

    they are so pretty ;p I have one of these, though I don't remember which number it was…

  28. 13th November 2015 / 8:32 am

    I see some lovelies I'd like…but I have a question…you introduced me to MAC, and I have become addicted to buying them.
    Here, Bourgjois is almost the same price as MAC…(not their special ones/sets, of course): is there a difference in feel, look etc. between the two? Do you have a preference, if you can say?
