The clocks going forward this evening means that spring is officially here and what better way to welcome spring with open arms other than a gorgeous hot pink lipstick - My weakness as you all know. A little while back I was lucky enough to win Laura's (Beauty To Couture) giveaway, where I was kindly gifted one of the Bourjois Shine Edition Lipsticks in the shade 23 Grenade-In. For me Spring definitely came early as this has been my go too lip product and I love it so much that it just had to be shown off in its full glory here on my blog.
I've been wanting to get my hands on one the Bourjois Shine Edition Lipsticks for quite sometime, and here's why.... The Shine Edition Lipstick is another one of those formulas that has the colour payout of a lipstick, feels like a balm and has an ultra glossy finish to it - Think a similar formula to our beloved Revlon Lip Butters. I personally love this kind of formula when it comes to choosing what lipstick to wear as you get the best of everything. My lips are still prone to feeling and getting dry around this time of the year and the Bourjois Shine Edition Lipstick does a wonderful job at keeping my lips feeling nourished due to its buttery and soft balm texture. The high shine formula also makes your lips look really healthy and although your lips look glossy they are in no way sticky at all.
What I really love about this lipstick is the colour payout, when it comes to lipstick its a case of the brighter the better for me and I love how the colour that you see in the bullet transfers perfectly onto your lips. The shade 23 Grenade-In is a little darker than your usual bright fuchsia shade as it leans slightly towards a deeper berry shade, which makes it the perfect colour for this time of year. I just love how bright and beautiful this looks once its on. The perfect thing about the formula of the Shine Edition Lipstick, is that if you use a light hand or dap on the product slightly on your lips, then the colour payout is not too bold or vibrant; Making it perfect for those of you who like your lips shades a bit more low key. As for lasting time, the Shine Edition Lipsticks do not take you though the whole day, which is to be expected due to the nature of its formula. However as the gloss and the colour start to fade your lips are left with more of a stained finish, so your lips are still looking pretty.
One more thing to add - I adore the packaging off the Bourjois Shine Edition Lipsticks, the silvery mirrored casing really makes it stand out among my other lipsticks, which definitely makes me reach for it more. I also love how I can see the product at the bottom of the bullet, its a lovely added touch and again makes this lipstick stand out among all the others that I own.
I'm definitely going to be treating myself to some more shades in the Shine Edition range, I've had a little look and I've got my eye on 'Rouge' a vibrant red and 'Oh My Doll which is a baby pink'.
I would love to know what your thoughts are on these lipsticks and what shades you've been loving? Do you love this colour as much as I do?
Lots of Love
