Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lip Lacquers - New Shades - Swatches

I am probably the last person on the bandwagon to notice that Bourjois have recently introduced a handful of new Rouge Edition Velvet Lip Lacquers to their line-up. I historically didn't get on incredibly well with these- I was a little disappointed last year when I tried them as I felt like they didn't live up to the hype, and I also found the colour choice to be quite limiting as there were 2 reds, 2 hot pinks but no neutral or more subdued colours. I get very little opportunity to top up my lip colour on daily basis so I am all for the matte lip creams that are doing the rounds currently- anything that lasts a few hours on my lips without parching the beejaysus out of them earns my attention. So when I sauntered past the Bourjois stand and noticed a few new pinky/nudey shades, I couldn't not pick them up! Out of the new colour choices - I picked up 3- a coral/nude/pink shade called 09 Happy Nude Year, a cool toned mauvey dusky pink called 10 Don't Pink of It and a warm rosy pink called 11 So Hap'Pink. I don't know if the formula of these colours is better, whether the colours are more forgiving, or whether it is my imagination, but I feel like the formula has improved- in my mind, they feel more comfortable on the lips and don't cause much destruction to my lips after a day of wear. I'm absolutely obsessed with 10 Don't Pink of It currently, it is just the most beautiful cool toned mauve pink shade and I've been wearing it so much since I got it. It's definitely a MLBB colour but it's so low maintenance and I love that I don't have to worry about the state of my lips in a day of back to back work meetings.

Have you tried any of the newer shades of these Bourjois offerings? Are there any other long lasting liquid lipsticks that you have been loving recently? Do tell me as I am always on the hunt!

  4. I bought one of these a few months back because people were claiming these were the best things of all time, could cure cancer etc. and I actually hated it! I wonder if they have changed the formula - if so, I would give it another chance but the one I have is pure muck


Thanks for your comment, I love to hear what you all have to say!
