One of the brands that I wanted to get products from during my long May trip was Bourjois since we don’t have Bourjois here in Norway. As you know, everybody is talking about their Rouge Edition Velvet lipsticks so I had to get my hands on them.
Here I’m gonna be sharing my thoughts on the shade Personne ne rouge which is a classic red one.
First of all, I love red lipsticks…but just on other people. Honestly, I can’t see myself with a bright lip very often, not sure if I’m scared or what but I think everybody but me looks perfect with a bright lip colour. However, I loved this shade when I swatched it and decided to get it. It really is amazing, the pigmentation is very intense, the formula is very creamy so it’s easy to apply, glides on smoothly and dries to a matte finish. It lasts pretty long time on the lips (no need for touch-ups!) and leaves a stain, it’s actually a pretty tough job for the makeup removers to remove it even after 8 hours. Still think that it looks better with two coats, though cause if you apply only one layer it’s quite sheer and then with one more everything comes to its place. I love how my lips feel smooth and soft with it.
The only thing that I don’t like is the scent which is a little bit artificial and strange but you smell it only for a short period of time during applying the product.
The drugstores that I was at, didn’t have all the shades, every drugstore was having different ones so I never got to see them all together but my opinion is that the bright shades were the best ones from the series.
And I’m so sad that I can’t find brands like Bourjois here in Norway, they have such nice products but it’s impossible for me to purchase them from here. Please, Bourjois, make it easier for us!
