If it seems like I talk about Bourjois a lot on here, it's because I do! I'm not sponsored by them or anything, I honestly just love the brand - in particular their face and lip products. The Rouge Edition Velvets have been a blogger favourite for a while now, and Bourjois have also recently released a new line called Aqua Laque.
I have three of the Rouge Edition Velvets in the shades So Hap'pink, Nude-ist and Pink Pong. They have a super matte finish which I love, especially with the bright colours, as you don't want them smearing throughout the day. I tend to use a lip liner before applying any of these as I find it makes it easier, and then I dab some of the product on using my fingers. Their longevity is amazing - I've worn these on a nine hour shift at work before, and whilst they need the occasional touch up, the colour still lasts all day. So Hap'pink is one of their newer shade releases, but I actually think that Pink Pong has been my most worn colour!
I also picked up one of their new Rouge Edition Aqua Laques in the shade Feeling Reddy. These have a much glossier, more shiny finish than the others and so I was a bit unsure at first, especially as I had chosen a bright colour. Like with the Velvets, I like to apply this with my finger - although with this I prefer to use quite a small amount to give a stain rather than an opaque finish. As they're fairly watery, I find that this works better as otherwise they can be quite transferrable and so need lots of touch ups. Longevity wise, the colour lasts for quite a while but not as long as the Velvet range.
Have you ever tried either of these products? What did you think of them?
