Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet


Ever since the Rouge Edition Velvet lipstick came out, and I've had a love/hate relationship with it mainly because I was turned off by the way it smells and the fact that it’s too smooth on the lips. After a few months (end of December 2014), Bourjois released 4 nude shades and so I got intrigued to try them out again, and it was around that time too when matte and liquid lipstick were becoming a “thing” and that’s  when I started my explicit love story with the Rouge Edition Velvet lipsticks.

They have 15 shades that were released throughout the 2 years ranging from Reds to Fuchsia to Neutrals. 

Red/Dark Shades: 
1,3,8,14,15

Fuchsia: 
2,5,6,13

Peach/Neutrals: 
4,7,9,10,11,12

The darker shades, I feel get too messy and tend to bleed, whereas the Neutrals go on very smoothly and last a long time. They are not transfer-free but they also don’t fade. 

My Favourite shade would have to be 07 - I literally have around 3 pcs (one in my makeup bag, one backup and one at the office) - it’s a beautiful mauve, muted pink that will go perfectly with all looks.

Rediscovering Past Loves - Dare by Guess

For every beauty fanatic out there, do you also sometimes feel "okay" about a product, but then after a while you rediscover it and it reminds you of an awesome time or suddenly you like the way it feels/looks on you?  that happened to me with Dare by Guess! I had totally forgot about it, buried in one of my drawers until I was doing "Fall Cleaning" and I found it! Ahhh sweet times! The floral-woody-musk composition is perfect for a jeans and white shirt look and below is the technicality side of it!




Top: kumquat, lemon blossom and pear blossom, 
Middle: cactus blossom, wild rose and elegant jasmine.
Base: Coconut, blond wood and musk. The sillage (the extent of others smelling it) is good but longevity somewhat “eh”; perhaps it’s because it’s an EDT? Still worth carrying in your everyday bag!
