Bourjois has always been a firm favourite of mine. It's one of the best drug-store brands who seem to create fantastic dupes of high-end products. The Bronzing Primer is a perfect dupe for the Soleil tan de Chanel and the Java Rice Powder is very similar to the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder. However Bourjois's most recent launch is probably one of the most exciting launches yet. The Velvet Rouge liquid lipsticks have recently hit the shelves and they are already extremely popular. Liquid lipsticks are nothing new, both Sleek and Topshop have also bought out similar products but nothing like what Bourjois have to offer.
There are 8 shades to choose from, ranging from nudes, corals, reds and pinks. I swatched all 8 onto my hand and I thought each one was bloomin' lovely. I finally decided to go for Hot Pepper and Pink Pong, be warned, both are mega bright but gorgeous colours. The formula of these lipsticks is very different to any other similar products I have tried. When it comes to matte, I tend to find that the lips can often look really dry and a bit flaky. Well certainly not with these, they first apply wet but once dry they are full on mattes with no flaky business going on. You can throw on as many coats as you like and your lips will never feel dry and the colour pay off is amazing! The cute little applicator makes it easy-ish to apply, steady hands are a must!
What's really great about these though is the staying power, they just don't budge. I first wore Hot Pepper and around 3-4 hours later my lipstick was still intact (and that was after devouring a chicken kebab and a can of coke, damn Sunday hangovers!) I think these will be great to throw on before heading to a festival so you don't have to worry about checking your compact every 10 minutes for a touch up!
These are available for £8.99 each, currently Superdrug are offering buy one get one 1/2 price. So I'd be quick if I were you, trust me, these are going to be a sell-out!
