Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvets* £8.99 - Left Hot Pepper - Right Happy Nude Year
When Bourjois released the gorgeous Rouge Edition Velvet liquid lipsticks, myself and every beauty lover went a little bit crazy for them and they are still such a hit. I think they've been my favourite beauty release of the year so far, so you can only imagine my excitement when I was invited to the Bourjous Party Ready event last week to have a sneak peak at their new christmas collection named 'Enchanting Nightbird' which will be available in the shops comes November. Seeing as the Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks are such a favourite of mine, my eyes lit up when I saw that Bourjois have added a few new shades to the collection.
These liquid lipsticks are just perfect, I love their long lasting finish and the way they feel like a whipped mouse on your lips when you first apply them. This formula quickly dies to leave a gorgeous matte stain on your lips and the best thing about it, is that these are in no way drying at all, which gives you the perfect pout - Just what you need for the party season.
The shade that I'm getting most excited about and the one which seems to be already a huge hit amongst the Bourjois girls is 'Happy Nude Year' which is the perfect nude pink. This beautiful warm pink toned nude is going to work with so many skin tones and will compliment a smokey eye perfectly (which you know you'll be rocking come christmas time). I'm personally a huge fan on pink toned nudes as I find they add a little more warmth to your overall look than what the beige tone nudes do, I just love how 'Happy Nude Year' will work both in the day time and evening - And as these velvet lipsticks are so long lasting your not going to have to worry about your lips at all.
Being re-realsed as part of the christmas collection is already an all-time favourite of mine, and probably the lipstick that gets the most wear, is the stunningly bright orange toned red 'Hot Pepper'. I'm sure probably most of you already have this shade lurking around in your collection as it was a perfect summer shade, but as its such a vibrant and classic shade of red, it makes it perfect for the party season too. You know this is going to look gorgeous on come winter time when your wearing shimmery irradecant eye makeup, just adding this fiery red to your lips is not only going to look festive on but add an instant warmth to your look. You can take a closer look at "Hot Pepper' including swatches in my full review here.
I'm so excited about these two Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks, and I just know 'Happy New Year' is going to be that one lipsticks that stays in my bag permanently! I would love to know what your thoughts are on these lipsticks and if your planning on adding any more Rouge Edition Velvets to your collection? Let me know in the comments below.
Lots of Love
