I haven’t tried anything from Bourjois for a very long time. If I’m honest, I feel as if my choices are limited to their nail polish as I’ve struggled to find shades that flatter my skin tone or have had to make do with a couple of shades being wearable from an entire collection which was pretty frustrating. The launch of their new Rouge Laque Liquid Lipsticks confirms that the favoured trend of liquid lip products are showing no signs of coming to an end and its formula promises intense colour, comfort and longevity.
The new Rouge Laques offer the intense colours of a traditional lipstick, and leave a non-drying, non-sticky finish with a soft shine to the lips. The formula is really lightweight and it’s easy to forget you’re even wearing a lip colour on your lips – they really are light as air!
They come in a streamlined, compact tube, with a bevelled applicator for precise application. Available in eight shades, when I stumbled upon these in Boots a few weeks ago, I was amazed when I discovered that not one, but all EIGHT were a flattering match for my skin tone. I couldn’t wait to shout about my find on Instagram!
Full coverage is reached with two coats, and once the shine wears down they settle into a natural stain which can be refreshed by applying a little lip balm over the top. Bourjois claim that the colour holds for up to 16 hours. I love the bright shades in this collection, even the nudes are bright and they’re perfect options for spring/summer makeup. The price point is pretty good too – keep an eye out for when they’re on offer to bagan even better bargain.
