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.
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.
