Bourjois Velvet Rouge Edition

Testing out Bourjois Velvet Rouge Edition I paired the lipstick with dewy skin and matte chocolate smokey eyes. 

I used Velvet Rouge Edition in 07 Nude-ist which is super matte, highly pigmented and long lasting. It does promote a 24 hour stay however I would say 5-6 Hours, which Is still pretty good! As far as matte liquid lipstick goes this has a beautiful soft velvet texture and not as drying as other liquid matte lipsticks. It is also called "Nude-ist" which would suggest a nude tone, however it is very much a bright pink, It did look brighter in some pictures than others.(see below). 

The application brush allows you to glide the product on and create a defined look. It applies evenly and definitely on the generous side when using the applicator. I found by priming my lips and applying with a lip brush, I had more control on the amount of product. I also tried it with a balm on top and wowee it looked beautiful. 

Overall, I love this product, its long lasting, smudge proof, a beautiful colour, doesn't crumble like some other matte lipsticks. It does lie slightly in the name (naughty Bourjois) Nude and 24 hour not so much but for Β£8.99 its a winner in my eyes!

I can't wait to buy and test the other colours in this range... Check them out at boots:
