Bourjois Velvet Rouge Lipstick- is it any good?

Monday, 8 February 2016


Liquid lipsticks are popping up everywhere right now and when I saw that bourjois had their own range I had to buy one to try out, (I hauled it here). First off, I am really happy because Bourjois is cruelty-free & they have a large selection of colours. They have a total of 17 shades ranging from pale pinks to dark plum & they retail for £8.99, a real bargain if you ask me.

The packaging is really chic looking and I love the fact that it has a lipgloss applicator. I like to use my fingertip to smudge it out a little bit for a softer everyday look but it is definitely buildable. These lipsticks are really longlasting, I was super suprised! I wore it for 6 hours and I had lunch & coffee in that time and it was still on my lips.


I have shade 09 Happy Nude Year and it goes on as a velvety cream but sets to a matte finish. It dries properly within a good 30 seconds and it doesn't bleed or feather.

Overall, I think these liquid lipsticks are amazing! I feel like they are at the same quality, if not better, as the Too Faced Melted lipsticks and a fraction of the price!! I want to go and buy a few more shades, especially the darker colours & Im going to recommend them to all of my girl friends.

You can buy them at Boots & Asos.

Have you tried this lipstick? If you haven't I would recommend next time you take your bum down to Boots & pick one to try. You wont be dissapointed!

Love, Becca x

  5. I don't know why I always forget about these. I have a couple and I like them but for some reason never reach for them. Will try to remember next time.
