I am back with another post with new brand. With liquid lipsticks taking over the beauty world, what better time to revisit a classic trendy buy? Bourjois were ahead of the game with their Rouge Edition Velvet; a non-drying, intensely pigmented lip colour that feels as light as air to apply but has great lasting power. The range has lighter and darker versions of red, corals, pinks and some nudes. I bump into with this beauty from Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet, shade no. 29- Nude York which has been recently launched. So, let’s have a closure look!!

My Experience with Rouge Edition Velvet by Bourjois in shade 29 Nude York-

This product comes in transparent plastic rectangular packaging which looks good when holded in hand with brand name and shade no. mentioned on it. The packaging of product is done in such a way that it resembles shade inside outside. The cap of the product represents the shade which is pretty cool and looks trendy, also it helps to recognise shade quickly. It has a sponge applicator which makes application easier and even on lips. The shade which I choose was Nude York i.e. shade no 29 or say a nude shade with a rosy tint which is best shade for everyday wear. When opened, you are welcomed with sensuous aroma which is a kick start of day.

The texture of liquid lipstick is very creamy, smooth and velvety (as name says). When applied for the first time I felt the shade/color melted sensuously on my lips, making it feel as light as air plus applicator was friendly to draw a good shape on my lips. Once applied it stays on the lips and slowly turned into a matt, velvety and incredibly light colour. This particular shade has gelled beautifully with my skin tone and added grace to my face. I really liked the formula. They feel super comfortable on lips, leaving it smooth, soft and velvety. If you like a matte look but find liquid lipsticks too drying for you, then you will love these Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks!

For everyday wear I apply single quote of shade 29, which gives me proper nude color with a rosy touch to it. But if I have to go out and want an elusive look then I apply two quotes of this shade which take little time to dry out. The color do slightly transfer and is not glass proof so must be careful while sipping coffee. Kiss is still manageable 😉 with lighter shades as it doesn’t get transfer or leaves mark on cheek. Also, you end up eating entire lipstick with meal which calls for touch up so it’s not that long lasting. It has stayed for 5-6 hours with few marks left on my lips.

Overall, I really liked this liquid lipstick and it has added to my favorites list. It is good for everyday wear, office-wear or when you have to keep your makeup look subtle. It looks trendy and suits the Asian skin tone plus it’s travel friendly. For teenagers, it’s a recommended product as the color pop out beautifully after application. Though it is bit pricey but it surely worth it.
