Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Red Pepper
I received this product in Bourjois' free gift set when you spent over £15 on their products in Boots recently. I didn't know what was in this box until I received it, as I ordered online and you couldn't see. When I did finally get inside to see I was really pleasantly surprised with the products inside. There were three full sized products and one mini, which I think is such an amazing freebie considering I was buying the two products that made £15 from Bourjois anyway.
This Rouge Edition Velvet lipstick was one of the full sized products within this gift set. Now if I'm honest, I wouldn't have personally chosen this colour for myself if I had the choice. But I am absolutely in love with this product, both colour and formula. I'm also not normally a huge fan of matte lipsticks because I find them quite drying and my lips seem to be constantly dry at the minute which just doesn't work well. Having said both of these things, I am such a huge fan of this product and cannot get enough of it. The packaging is lovely and the applicator is so easy to use, making application a dream. A few swipes of this product and you're ready to go, honestly it's that fast because the colour of this product is so opaque.
I definitely think this is the perfect night out colour as I find a red lip instantly perks up any relatively plain outfit. I wore this on New Years Eve with a simple black outfit and I loved it. It lasted pretty much all night, it could have done with a top up nearing the end of the night but it lasted really well. When it did start to fade, it did so evenly and left a nice looking red stain on the lips. This product didn't leave my lips feeling dry at all which was such a bonus for me, considering I normally have such dry lips. The only thing I would say about this product is that I would have preferred to also use a red lip liner simply due to it being such a bright coloured red lipstick. I have now purchased one so I cannot wait to next wear this lipstick.
Overall this is such a lovely product and I definitely will be checking out the other shades available for this formula. This has quickly become one of my favourite lipsticks and also I'm so pleased with the colour as I never would have chosen it myself. Let me know if you've tried this product and any other shades you would recommend :-)
