Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks Review!

After the dust has just settled down about the new Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks, I have hopped onto the bandwagon and decided to give them a go! I was a bit skeptical as I'd never tried matte lipsticks before, but you know what? You have to be brave with makeup sometimes - especially as it's now summer (as far as England goes) and it's the perfect chance to try out bright lip colours. 

I'm going to cut this review to the point. The verdict: AMAZING. 

I can't believe it took me this long to try them out. I bought two, Ole Flamingo, which is a vibrant dark pink and Frambourjoise, a red berry colour with a slight pink tone. I can't decide which one I love more, but I do think Frambourjoise is probably a more wearable colour on a daily basis. 

These lipsticks apply as a gloss and then within a few seconds, they turn to a matte finish. Admittedly, I did find it quite difficult to apply around the edges of my lips, so if any of you have tips to apply this neatly, it would be greatly appreciated! I'm slowly getting there though. Once on, the color really doesn't budge. I had to remove it with makeup remover and a cotton pad. You can definitely tell there's something on your lips, but it's not an uncomfortable feeling and you don't have the worry of smudging it all over your face like a bright lipstick! Bonus! :-) 

The Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipsticks are £8.99 from Boots, but Boots are always doing 3 for 2 offers! I will definitely be going back to get some more, maybe Peachy Club? 

Let me know what you all thought of these. :-)
