I popped into Superdrug a few weeks ago to have a little mosey on my lunch break and as usual I left with a hand full of swatches. It wasn’t until later that evening when I stepped out of the shower that I realised one of the swatches just would not budge, even after about 6 hours, 3/4 hand washes and a shower! That’s some serious staying power right there! I cast my mind back to the earlier Superdrug trip and remembered that that particular swatch had come from one of the new Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks and I made a vow that next time I was there I simply NEEDED to pick one up!
The boring as ever, neutral fan I am I picked up a mid-toned beigey pink which closely remembers at least 9 or 10 other lipsticks and glosses in my collection. What can I say?! I just can’t seem to escape those kind of shades but at least I know what I like!
The lipstick comes in a liquid form with a doe-foot applicator and is completely matte. It’s easy to apply, the applicator picks up just enough product and doesn’t overload your lips whilst giving you enough precision to make a neat application.
As previously discussed, the staying power is pretty damn brilliant. I like knowing I can rely on what I put on my face in the morning and this is definitely one of those products. It will last about 3 hours on the lips (even through food and drinks) and then will fade to a nice stain for another few hours. It is slightly drying but nothing a bit of Blistex can’t fix.
I have now decided I absolutely need every single colour. The next on my list is Peach Club. You can pick these up from Boots and Superdrug for £8.99 each but they’re on special offer in Superdrug at the moment for only £5.99 so go go go!!
Thanks for reading!
