I honestly still can’t contain my excitement over these Bourjois rouge edition velvet lipsticks!
If you follow me on Instagram and Twitter (linked below and pretty much everywhere on my blog) you would have seen a sneak preview of the box I received from Bourjois and Influenster.
Some of you may know what Influenster is, some of you may not. I won’t go into too much detail on this post as I have gone through it on my recent YouTube video (which you can find at the bottom of this post).
If you are a blogger/influencer then I would strongly recommend you checking this out as it is such a great scheme to receive things and try new products out. You don’t have to be into beauty, you could blog about lifestyle, food, heath and fitness etc etc!
*Anyway, I was so lucky enough to be chosen for this campaign to receive 12 of the Bourjois Rouge Velvet Lipsticks. THEY ARE INCREDIBLE!!!!
The colours range from the lightest of nudes right up to the deepest of reds, and with a load of pinky tones in-between! The colours really are beautiful and right up my street.
Bourjois Velvet Lipstick Swatches
I have swatched them all below for you to see the full range.
I’d probably say my favourites are the 01 Hey Nude (the lightest one), and I also really like 03 hyppink Chic, but then again I know I am going to reach for the red ones when we fall into deep winter months!
You can buy these lipsticks in Boots for example here. They retail for £8.99 each but Boots often do 3 for 2 offers etc, so definitely look out for them.
Honestly the texture when you first apply the lipstick is so silky and smooth and applies so easily. I’d say for a drugstore brand these are the nicest applying lipsticks I’ve ever tried (and I’ve tried a few).
When the product dries, the finish is as it says, velvet/matt. Although it dries as a matt finish it still doesn’t dry your lips out which is a massive bonus.
ALSO…. they are so long lasting! I wore one of them yesterday and it lasted ALL DAY! That’s through eating and drinking quite a bit throughout the day.
I honestly would recommend these lipsticks to everyone who likes wearing lipsticks! They are so so nice.

Lots of love,
