Review: Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks

Bourjois is one of my favourite high street makeup brands as they never seem to disappoint, so I was drawn to buying some new bits from them on a recent Superdrug trip. I've not really tried out many liquid lipsticks before so I was really intrigued by the Rouge Edition Velvet lipsticks as its always nice to try out something different. The two colours from the range that really appealed to me were Frambourjoise and Hot Pepper, both of which are gorgeous bright shades. 

02 Frambourjoise
The reason I picked up Frambourjoise is that I tend to steer away from pink lipsticks as they don't always suit me but this shade is so pretty so I thought I would embrace the pink and try it out. What I love about this shade is that it's pink without being too in your face, it's quite a reddish pink and it makes the lips look really full and plump.

03 Hot Pepper
Hot Pepper is one of those shades you want to wear on a rainy day to brighten up your life. It's a beautiful red which really livens up any makeup look. I wore this one to uni the other day and got so many complements on the colour. I can see this one becoming my go-to easy red lip.

I love the formula of these lipsticks, they apply so beautifully on the lips. I was slightly sceptical at first as when first applied they look quite glossy (as you can see in the swatch) but they dry completely matte which is just to my liking. The applicator is really easy to get along with and allows just the right amount of precision to ensure the lip looks perfect, which is a necessity as these things stain like a bitch (which in my opinion is a very good thing as long as you haven't smudged it on your face!) I apply two layers as I feel it gives just the right amount but even one layer would do as the colours are very strong. These things literally stay on for forever even after drinking one too many cups of coffee which makes me love them even more. I'm seriously tempted to try out the other colours in the collection possibly some of the more nude shades. 

I picked these up for £5 each on offer in Superdrug! So if you're looking to try them I would definitely head there while the deal is still on!
