This week has definitely become a week of lip related posts! Hoping you're not too bored of them yet, I thought I'd write a review of the new Bourjois Rouge Edition Collection. It features 18 shades in total, featuring 6 nude shades (Preppy), 6 brighter shades (Colour Block) and 6 darker, evening shades (Night Out). There was such a pleasing range of different shades for different occasions but I managed to narrow my choices down to two, one colour block and one night out shade.

#17 Rose Millesme - This one is the lighter shade in the 'night out' range. On me, this is a beautiful neutral pink shade with a hint of plummish undertones. 

#10 Rouge Buzz - This is a bright orange red that makes a wonderful statement lip.

I have to say, after testing a more neutral and a brighter shade I can confirm that these are not only very pigmented, but also an extremely comfortable and creamy finish that is almost unnoticeable on the lips. These have been likened to MAC Cremesheen's but I find them far less heavy and much easier and smoother to apply. They have a light sheen finish and hydrated my lips throughout the entire day. I did need to top them up once or twice, but overall I'm really impressed with these and would definitely look into getting more if I didn't have lipstick overload at the moment!

On the same stand as the lipsticks, I also noticed Bourjois' other latest collection, Artisto Clash. I'll be honest here and say the nail polishes and eyeshadow didn't really stand out to me, the eyeshadow was super shimmery and the nail polishes.. well, I definitely have enough of them! However, I spotted the eyeliner and couldn't be happier. I've wanted a purple shade to smudge under the lower lash line for months now and this one is just beautiful!

As you can see from the picture, it has fine shimmer through it but this is not at all gritty or uncomfortable on the skin or inner eye. My favourite way to wear it is smudged under the lash line with a gold shadow on the lid. I absolutely love this for a pop of colour and love how it makes green eyes stand out. It also lasted really, really well so if you're like me and not quite ready for bright eyeshadow looks I would really try this out :)

Have you tried anything from the new Bourjois collections?

  4. I am an addict for lip products and i my attention was drawn to these lipsticks when i spotted the stand for them in boots. However, i was with my boyfriend at the time so i didn't get a chance to check them out and swatch them all like i would do if i was alone. The shades you picked up looks really pretty and i am more of a neutral kind of girl so i prefer the shade '#17 Rose Millesme'and i will definitely look into buying a couple soon!
