I absolutely love nude lipsticks and the majority of lip products I own are most likely to be fifty shades of nude. No surprise that on my recent trip to the drugstore I picked a couple of lipsticks from Bourjois, that seemed to be of a really subtle muted nude shades.
Bourjois Rouge Edition lipstick (£7.99 or $9.99) has an incredibly soft formula with 10hr hydration and is enriched with 1/4 pure laque for bright color and shine.
The description provided by the brand sounds very impressive and promising. I especially liked the radiant and glossy finish this lipstick is supposed to have on your lips combined with the incredible hydration and smooth texture. By the way, as this post is first impression I am not able to give full information how this lipstick performs throughout the day, but it can actually perform differently on different people.
The packaging of the lipstick is a dream! It is plastic (but all lipsticks have plastic tubes nowadays) and as a result it is very light-weight. The plastic is very well done and is quite glossy, but you won’t notice prints that much. The cap is nicely designed with the brand name and collection name on it. What I like most about this tube is that the bottom part of the lipstick has the sample of an actual color of the product. How awesome is that! From now on you don’t have to open the lipstick to find the color your are looking for. That saves a lot of time for me.
I picked up two colors that seemed the most nude-ish and I always go for nude colors especially if I don’t own any lip products from the brand. I can always use another nude lipstick, anyway.
The Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick in color 02 Beige Trench is a perfect mauve nude color with a nice balance of beige and rose undertones, that doesn’t look too orange or too pink on the lips.
The formula of this lipstick is very creamy and feels really nice and moisturizing upon application. This particular shade glides on easily and doesn’t set into lines too visibly, at least in real life. On the lips it becomes so creamy that it seems like you have balm or a lipgloss on your lips, but not a lipstick.
It is quite a nice new lipstick and in some lighting it can show grey-ish undertones, that is so trendy right now. I think this particular color is a very good option for everyday wear and goes well with any makeup look.
The Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick in color 19 Corail en Vogue is a little bit different in comparison with the Beige Trench. It is of a sheerer formula and has more shine to it. this lipstick also has a slight vanilla-peach scent and Beige Trench has none at all.
The finish os this lipstick is very glossy and quite translucent – you won’t be able to get an opaque color out of it. Due to a sheer texture it applies on a little bit unevenly and a light color doesn’t help much in this case. It settles into lines but not that noticeable from afar. I like this lipstick a little bit less, but the color is quite nice and even being from orange color family it does not contradict pink undertones of my skin which is nice. But if you have smooth lips or exfoliate them regularly you will definitely like this one a lot.
On this comparison swatch you may see that Corail en Vogue is quite sheer an orange based when at the same time Beige Trench is more or less opaque and deeper in color.
I must admit that Bourjois Rouge Edition lipsticks are the creamiest and glossiest lipsticks in the drugstore department. If you are looking for a moisturizing lipstick that preforms like a lip gloss you might consider this line. The color range is quite extensive and I assume that darker or brighter colors perform better on the lips. But nude color option is quite limited to three or four shades.
Have you ever tried Bourjois lipsticks? What do you think of these two shades?
