Review: Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick

Monday 18 February 2013

I have a new hot lip colour! One of my favourite drugstore brands, Bourjois have brought out a new line of lipsticks called 'Rouge Edition'.

It's supposedly aimed at 'fashionistas' and although I hate that word, I do like the idea of trend-led shades at affordable prices!

There are 18 shades in the range, from nude to brights that they've categorised into three 'collections'; 'Preppy' (nudes), 'Colour Block' (brights) and 'Night Out' (dramatics and darks), but I am absolutely loving this unique shade, called 'Fraise Remix'.

It's photographed quite pink for some reason, but in daylight it's more what I'd call a neon coral red.

The formula is enriched with orchid extract and is really soft and buttery on the lips, with a Demi-matte finish.

The staying power is about average, nothing special but not a disgrace either.

It comes packaged in a black glossy tube with multi coloured lettering and a small clear section showing the colour at the bottom.

I'm really in love with this shade and it hasn't been off my lips since buying this product. I think in the same price range, I actually prefer the formulation of L'Oreal's Rouge Caresse, because its more glossy but still pigmented, however, Bourjois Rouge Edition has some really fun and funky shades.

Priced at £7.99, it won't break the bank to play around, so I suggest you try out the line and see what you think!

This shade would look gorgeous with graphic black liner on a night out. A thumbs up from me!
