I'd been hearing so many good things about the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks (£8.99 | Link) that i obviously had to try them for myself.

If you aren't one for a bold lip then these definitely will not be for you as these are all very bold - i went for the shade 02 Frambourjoise which i thought was one of the lighter ones - thanks to the lighting in Boots when i swatched this on my hand it came out a mauvy pinky red shade and it looked so pretty that i knew it was the one for me but then when i got it home it wasn't the colour id thought. Instead Frambourjoise is more of a red with a pink undertone and whilst it's still a really gorgeous colour - I'm just not sure it suits me very well, what do you think?

My silly choice aside; these lip products are fantastic. They have really good colour payoff; it barely takes much product for a full opaque application and they last on the lips for ages too! They glide onto the lips so smoothly; they have a matte finish which isnt normally a finish i opt for but this isnt the type of matte that dries on your lips and looks horrible and patchy, these feel really moisturising and i actually love the finish of them.

The packaging is also really nice; they have a doufat applicator which makes the product really easy to apply and they are really handy compact size so they barely take up any room in your make up bag or handbag. I really like these lip products despite the fact im still a bit unsure of the shade i opted for i would definitely go out and buy some of the other shades as they are such beautiful lip products and they are really good quality.

Have you tried the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick?
