When it comes to lipsticks I’m not very experimental, it took me about 2 years to even get the confidence to wear a red lipstick outside of the house. I tend to stick to pale pink shades, or one’s that provide a little bit of colour. One thing that I’ve never been into is nude lipsticks, the closest I’ve ever got is MAC’s Hue. A while ago I bought a few bits from Bourjois, which then gave me a free gift set which included one of their Rouge Edition lipsticks in the shade Beige Trench. I didn’t think much of it at the time, and I was kind of put off by the name ‘Beige Trench’, it isn’t the most attractive of lipstick names is it? It then sat in my lipstick drawer unthought about for a while.
The colour looks fairly basic in the tube, and actually looks rather beige, so I wasn’t sure how it would look once applied. However once it was applied to my lips it’s a different story, the colour seems to be the perfect nude ‘my lips but better shade’, a complete turn around from how it looked in the tube. The lipstick it’s self is feels really hydrating, and doesn’t dry out my lips, it just gives my lips a lovely glossy shine. The Rouge Edition lipsticks have actually been formulated to leave lips feeling hydrated and protected for 10 hours, but I’ve never had a lipstick on for that long to prove that, but my lips certainly feel soft whilst wearing this. This is the type of lipstick I wear frequently to work, as it’s rather neutral and unoffensive, and the perfect lipstick for when I forget to reapply it!
I’m glad I decided to give this lipstick another chance, as it actually looks rather lovely on. There’s 18 different shades in the Rouge Edition collection, and there’s actually a nice plum shade I’ve got my eye on, which is a bit out there for me! Are you a fan of nude lipsticks?
