Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks

My exams have finally finished and I thought it was about time I treated myself to some makeup goodies. Ed and I have just been on a city break to Manchester and I needed some lipstick to wear both in the day and night. I had seen these Bourjois Velvet Lipsticks on various blogs and thought they looked perfect for the job. I decided to purchase a red lipstick (08 Grand Cru) and a nude pink shade (07 Nude-ist) as they allowed me to have some variety. I usually wear red to go out in the evening as it is more of a classic look, I often pair it with a winged liner, true Taylor Swift style. I wore Nude-ist most days as it is subtle but defines my lips nicely.

What I love about this range is that it is also buildable. By applying more layers of the product you get a more pigmented look which is really nice as you can choose how dramatic you want the look to be. The colour lasts, only requiring the odd touch up if you have been sipping a drink or eating. The matte finish is just what I wanted, I rarely wear shine or gloss lipsticks. The product isn't drying, something I have often found in past products. 

I would definitely recommend this product if you are looking for a staple lipstick in your kit, it really is perfect for quick application and a lasting finish. There are 8 shades in the Rouge Edition Velvet collection so there should be something for everyone!
