Bourjois Rouge Velvet Collection

So getting to try all 12 new Bourjois lipsticks was an absolute dream, especially as I’m loving matte lipsticks at the moment! With a range of 12 shades from bolds to nudes to choose from there’s certainly one for everyone!

The shades starting from top to bottom on my arm are:

01 Hey Nude • 02 Flaming’ Rose • 05 Brique-à-brac • 03 Hyppink Chic • 04 Hip Hip Pink • 06 Abrico ‘Dabra • 07 Joli Carmin’ois • 08 Rubi’s Cute • 09 Fuchsia Bottè • 10 Magni-fig • 11 Berry Formidable • 12 Brunette

Please don’t ask why I didn’t just swatch them in number order, is was a pretty late night full of work when I took these photos

The shades I’ve been wearing the most are 08, 07 and 05, however the range has such a great mix of colours I’ve used almost all of them at one point or another. I really love the formula of these lipsticks as they don’t dry out your lips which is great as I find some matte lipsticks are sooo drying. They’re also pretty long lasting too – I find I do have to top these up in the afternoon after eating lunch, whereas my more expensive lipsticks last a lot longer, however for the price I think these are just great!!

The lipsticks are shaped so they’re super easy to apply without needing to use lipliner – perfect The lids are slightly hard to pull off but it’s actually probably a good thing as I’ve had lipsticks in the past where the lids have gone loose and I’ve ended up with lipstick all over my handbag. Not a good situation!

Some of the deeper colours are just the perfect shades for this autumn! Have you tried Bourjois lipsticks before? If so which were your favourites?

    These look so pretty! I love the orange kind of coral colours within it! I’m glad influenster has worked out for you it’s never seemed to work for me even though I regularly fill out the reviews and surveys!

    Ooh these look great! Brunette looks exactly my colour, I’m loving browny nudes at the moment!! Is Hey Nude browny toned on the lips? It looks it on your arm but you can never be sure 😂
