One product we will NEVER get enough of is lipstick! So, another day, another lipstick, and, as we were doing what we do best – testing out beauty products – we had a very pleasant surprise: A lipstick that looked and felt amazing from the first application, and did not come off – ALL DAY!
Our latest obsession is the Bourjois Rouge Velvet The Lipstick, $12, and damn does it feel velvety – it literally glides on like butter. Think of this as a cross between a liquid lipstick and a classic lipstick: it’s long-wearing af, but it’s also easy to use and apply. The shape means that you can define and fill lips in one sweep, and the divine texture means it glides on and feels so comfortable on the lips.
One thing we did not expect from the buttery texture was the insanely long-wearing magic this lipstick possesses; on initial application, it didn’t feel as if it would be long-wearing at all, but after five to ten minutes, the pigments set to a completely transfer-proof finish, that lasted all day!
We also love the color spectrum; it has 26 shades, ranging from pretty pinks and bright reds to bold plums, soft mauve shades, and deep browns and beige tones. So, whether you’re looking to find a statement or an everyday shade, you’ll have plenty of options.
We have not stopped wearing this since we discovered it – it makes everything a little easier, and prettier! Let us know if you guys have tried this lipstick in the comments below!
