As I mentioned yesterday I was lucky enough to win a big Boujois competition and got lots of make up. When the Rouge Edition lipsticks came out I was on the spending ban so didn’t look at them as lipstick is my weakness and didn’t want to cave. Since then I’d forgotten about them as I keep forgetting about Bourjois. Since winning I definitely won’t be!!
I got the shades 07 Fuchsia Graffiti, 15 Rouge Podium and 02 Beige Trench. I would have picked the first two myself but probably not the third.
The packaging of these make it really easy to see the colour of the lipstick. I like the it has the section at the bottom showing it. The pink and the red writing stand out against the black backgroud and is a simple design I like
The lipsticks have the number of them on the bottom. I don’t like that boots uses the name yet the number is on the lipsticks. The name is only on the barcode sticker which I’d normally remove.
The bullet is typical shape. All the colours are very pigmented and glide easily onto the lips and have great wear time.
Fuchsia Graffiti 07 is a bright blue toned pink. Perfect for spring/summer and really adds a pop of colour. The bright pink shade is really flattering on my current pale skin but would also look great with a tan. The blue tone too it also helps teeth appear whiter. It leaves a nicer almost glossy finish and isn’t drying.
Rouge Podium 15 is a great red for people who aren’t so confident with a red lip. This is a true red colour but applies sheerer than the pink. It makes it great for day wear as can be used to give the lip a soft red tint or built up for a stronger red shade. Glides on to the lip easily and feels soft on the lip.
Lastly is Beige Trench 02. This is a blue toned true nude. It’s very pigmented. I find this doesn’t suit my skin tone but I’m sure on other it would look great. It’s got brilliant pigmentation for a high street nude shade and lasting power. I just find it’s too blue toned on my skin tone. Maybe when I have a tan it’ll work or with a gloss.
There are some other gorgeous shades in the collection I can’t wait to try out. 14,18 and 12 look amazing. The next time they are on 3 for 2 I think I’ll be purchasing.
I really love the formulation of these. They are really pigmented, last well and aren’t drying. Have you tried they Rouge Edition lipsticks?
