Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet - 05 Ole Flamingo

August 05, 2014

It feels like it's been such a long time since I reviewed a single lip product on it's own, seeing as I haven't really purchased any new ones recently other than this, but i've been loving it that much that I thought it deserved a whole post dedicated to it. 
Ever since I picked up one of the new Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet (£8.99) for my giveaway a couple of months ago, I knew that I just had to get one for myself just the look of the shade '05 Ole Flamingo' was enough to make a girl fall head over heels for a lip product and after hearing so many rave reviews I finally caved.

The first thing other than the pigmentation of this shade, is the formula of this product. It is like nothing that I have tried before, and that is a bold statement coming from someone who owns far too many lip products. The only way I can describe this formula is a 'velvet almost matte, but not too matte'. It glides on like a dream and you can't even feel it on your lips, the product is that light but boy can you see it. I love the pigmentation, especially of this shade as it's a vibrant pink but one that anyone can pull off especially with a tan. I also find that the almost matte finish it gives doesn't appear really drying like matte products can be, which is major bonus and another reason as to why I love this product. I really want to get my hands on more of these, but for now I will just continue to swoon over this one.

Have you tried any of the new Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet's?

  5. This colour is stunning :) I think out of all the colours in this bourjois lip product range, this has to be my favourite one. The formulation is lovely as I have swatched it many times in store. However, I chose to purchase the new Revlon moisture lipstains because the packaging is better and i much prefer the staining effect~ The colour range is bigger too!

    Thanks for reviewing, I hope you have a lovely day!

  6. This particular shade reminds me of Mac Girl About Town..
    Everyone seems to be raving about either this shade or Hot Pepper but all of the shaded look gorgeous to me, especially the shade Peach Club!

    It's a lot more pigmented than Girl About Town, but it's still quite a vibrant shade :) x

  9. I've been searching high and low for Nude-Ist but it's completely sold out everywhere. The fact that it's velvet is amazing, because I often find mattes a little drying.

  10. I really want to try a few of these, i love the shades they have!
