So much for 'no more makeup reviews' Kat Rachel over at Miss Periwinkle is to blame for this one!
The other night she wore a fab product that was a lipstick but with lipgloss package. As confused as I was I asked her and we had a little gossip about them. The next day I went and bought the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick in the shade Hot Pepper. The range is defined as giving a 'bold, matte and long lasting lip colour with 24 hr hold'.
What a unique little product! It is soo smooth on the lips, no silly glossy movement or stickiness, it just feels as if there is nothing on your lips but it gives a superb long lasting colour. I have to say I am not very good at applying lip products, I always seem to miss my lip outline or smudge it (think I need to invest in some good lip liners) but with a gloss type application you really can get into the lip edges for some defined detail!
I chose Hot Pepper as I never ever go for reds ( and I still don't think I will ever again ) as I just don't think they suit my skin tone and also the fact that I am too into my pink shades that make me feel much more girly. That being said I really do like this shade and was glad I stepped out my comfort zone. I'm thinking of purchasing some more from Boots.. maybe the shade Ole Flamingo!
You can get these for £8.99 and they are defiantly worth the money in my opinion :)
Enjoy the bank holiday!
