As you're all probably aware by now - I cannot resist a lippie or two. No matter how hard I try not to let temptation grab hold of me, it always does where lipsticks are concerned (willpower isn't a word I'm familiar with - clearly). Bourjois Rouge Editions didn't escape my beady eyes and in true beauty blogger fashion I set out one heck of a mission to add a few of them to my collection. After a great deal of lurking round the Bourjois stand and swatching lines all the way up my arms (standard procedure for a blogger), I settled on these 3 as my 'chosen ones'.
04 | Rose Tweed | A beautiful Rosy brown shade that is very much a 'your lips but better' kind of colour for those understated days where you just one a little lift. I think this one has to be my favourite of the bunch - purely because it's so wearable and looks so flattering and natural - it really enhances the lips without looking false or overdone and it just adds a little bit of 'oomph' to bare lips.
08 | Rose Studio | A vibrant true pink shade that verges on the side of blue toned ever so slightly. I adore pinks, so this one simply had to find it's way into my lipstick drawer. It's one of those lipsticks you could use on a night out or in the daytime, and is probably the most versatile of the three.
07 | Fuchsia Graffiti | This is my favourite type of pink to wear if I'm going out or simply just want to make a bit of a statement in the day. It's a bright, fuchsia pink and the most pigmented of the bunch.
At £7.99 they aren't the cheapest of the drugstore lipsticks but certainly pack a punch with pigmentation and finish. I was unsure of the shape at first, but the flat tip makes it so easy to create an even line around the lips and rules out the need for lip liner. They're very decently pigmented, and the colours show up on the lips pretty much true to the colour in the tube. I'm also a big fan of the slightly glossy/satin finish they give - they don't feel drying at all and I get a decent bit of wear time out of them before the need to reapply.
Rouge Editions are available in 18 shades ranging from barely there nudes to classic reds and deep plums - so there's something in the collection for everyone and every occasion - I really want to try 'Peche Cosy', 'Orange Pop' and 'Rouge Buzz' next.. I shall keep you updated on here if I end up buying any more of course!
