My first beauty post! *squeal* Firstly, I want to thank my family and friends for the support shown to me during the first few hours (literally three hours ago) of this blog going live! Keep ’em coming! Now, let’s get down to business!
Okay, so – a brand we all know and love, Bourjois, is celebrating their 150th anniversary this year and the products they are releasing in honor of that are mostly all hits including the latest Shine Edition which is a continuation to the much loved Rouge Edition. I received the product in Famous Fuchsia which is a gorgeous shade of hot pink – the perfect summer color, don’t you think? But is it really all that or would you be wishing for your money back after your purchase? Let’s find out, shall we?!
The packaging is super sleek and the prettiness of the lipstick is just that – oh so pretty! I’m normally a wearer of colors with more depth and a matte effect however when I tried this one on, I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable it felt on my lips. The Shine Edition lipsticks are enriched with nourishing mango butter extracts that deliver up to 10 hours of smooth moisture which I greatly appreciate as most of the time I am so used to wearing a lip balm underneath lipsticks. If you tend to do that as well, I can assure you with these babies from Bourjois, you don’t have to! However, after a couple of hours (around 3, without food), the gloss begins to fade but it still leaves a lovely stain on your lips.
So, let’s recap – a smooth, shiny lipstick that moisturizes in a super glossy and reflective packaging bringing summer’s colors straight to your lips! That’s What’s Up! I will definitely be purchasing the other available shades!
