Hey guys! I have another makeup post for you today: I will discuss the new Bourjois liquid lipstick from the Rouge Edition Velvet series. My shade is 15 Red-volution.
I had to buy something for big outings, so as not to be stressed by traces of lipstick, its spreading on my lips and the constant touch-ups that were required. Are you curious why this time I decided to reach for a drugstore, not a mineral product? And how did this Bourjois lipstick work for me? I invite you to the rest of the review.

Bourjois, my opinion:
Bourjois lipstick comes in an elegant, transparent plastic wrapper with an embossed logo. Thanks to this, we can also see the shade immediately.
It has a decent applicator, even such an inexperienced person like me had no problems with using this stick. It’s nicely cut, so I didn’t get any stains beyond the outline of my mouth.
I was only hoping for a more saturated color, dark red – as described it is just such a deep red. Real red. It is also typically red in the pictures. Not a brighter, matte red with that slightly raspberry undertone that comes out on my lips. But despite everything, it looked very nice and I enjoyed using it.
Really light and velvety texture. And an elegant shade that will not wear off easily. I tested Bourjois lipstick on several important specimens and it was so durable that it stayed in place for many hours, I even had a problem with washing it thoroughly. It does not dry out the lips as much as other products of this type. It leaves them smooth and healthy looking. I didn’t have cuticles or tightening, which makes me happy, even though I forgot about the lotion foundation for this product and I also used a drying lip liner. Even so, Bourjois lipstick was comfortable to use and wear throughout the evening. Certainly, all the manufacturer’s promises were met in every percentage. I have no objections, except that such products, due to their guaranteed durability, usually do not have a good composition, but this time I can turn a blind eye to it. After all, we do not “eat” such a product during the day, we do not lick it. Besides, from time to time you can apply any lipstick without fear. Perhaps, however, before using it, it is worth smearing your lips with a balm for even better durability and hydration.

Summary about Bourjois:
This lipstick is definitely perfect for all nice occasions and big outings. On a daily basis, I would prefer traditional lipstick with the addition of moisturizing oils, but sometimes I want to reach for something new. Bourjois liquid lipstick does not dry lips as much as other products of this type, this is its huge plus and it is also very durable. It’s definitely worth a try.
