If you saw my Bourjois A-Z of Beauty Giveaway Winnings post you’ll have seen I was lucky to get my hands on several things from Bourjois, and one of them included one of the Shine Edition Lipsticks in the shade Rouge Making Of. Being a complete lipstick addict this is one of the first things I got around to playing with first. I also thought that out of everything the packaging stood out the most.
First thing I thought when I tried this was how it reminded me of the Revlon Lip Butters. The packaging, texture and the balm like feel of it, are all very similar. One thing that I found to be different is the pigmentation of the colour. I have the shade Rouge Making Of, a gorgeous bright red shade, and I found that once applied it stayed on for hours. In fact I completely forgot I even applied it and caught my reflection hours later to find it was still there. Just like the Revlon Lip Butters I found it to be super moisturising, which will come in pretty handy now we’re approaching the winter months. I’m not normally a bright red lip type of girl, in fact I’ve only just started venturing out into the world of a dark red lip. So when I first opened this I thought it seemed a little bright, and wasn’t too sure if this would be for me. However when I applied it I found it didn’t come out so bright, and you could even apply it with a lip brush if you wanted a more softer colour.
I think I’m some what smitten with this Shine Edition Lipstick, and I think it may be making several appearances in my daily make up. I’m now even eyeing up some more of the Bourjois Shine Edition Lipsticks…
