Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick in Fraise Remix!

Over the summer, an amazing girl and even more amazing friend sent me a lovely care package.  Mariska, from Simply-Polished, is a dutch beauty blogger that has impeccable taste in makeup.  She tweeted me that Bourjois was having a BOGO on lipsticks and there was a shade that she had to send to me.  I gladly accepted, on the condition that I could send her something in return.  IMG_6999

Well … this was the lipstick that prompted the little impromptu swap! This lipstick was also one of my favorite shades to wear on my lips in the summer! So why am I just now getting to this on my blog?  2 reasons; 1. I’m awful at taking pictures of my lips and was dreading swatching this, and 2. I’m lazy and every time I wore it I forgot to take a picture!

Calling all fashionista’s out there… this new lipstick is for you! It’s ready to wear formula is enriched with ¼ of pure laque for a radiant, glossy finish and orchid blossom extract so it glides onto the lips leaving them feeling smooth, hydrated and protected for up to 10 hours. A  “must-have” lipstick for every woman’s make-up bag. Tested and approved by fashion lovers.  Available in 18 fashionable shades from natural nudes to pretty pinks, colour-blocking corals and classic reds, there are so many to choose from! A shade for every outfit and style!  Stylish and sleek in design, it is the perfect fashion accessory for that trendsetting smile!

IMG_7649What I like: the color! Its the perfect mix of pink and coral with a touch of red.  This lipstick is really bright and highly highly pigmented.  This is just 1 swipe across the lips, without any need to build up the color.  I also love the finish! While it is a creme finish, it appears really glossy and has a lot of shine.  I also like wearing this a little more sheer or as a slight tint to my lips.  I also love that it isn’t drying at all nor does it settle into my fine likes.  Also, once it fades it leaves a nice pink tint to my lips which lasts for about 4-5 hours.

What I don’t like:  this only lasts on my lips about 2 hours.  I am a non-fussy lip product girl, so any product that I can apply once and be good for a while I love.  This isn’t really that type of lipstick and requires some touch ups.   Also, while it is gorgeous, this is really only a type of color that I can wear in the summer.

Overall, I love this lipstick and would love to get my hands on a few more shades.  I love the finish, the feel, the texture, and the color.  The only thing I’m not in love with is the longevity.  But if you’re a girl who doesn’t mind touch ups throughout the day, then this is a great lipstick for you!

Grade: A-

Price: price varies depending on where you live. I found it on ASOS for $10.00

What do you guys think? Do you have any Bourjois lipsticks?

  1. It just looks so stunning on you, I still want to run out and get it, every time I see you wear it. Unfortunately it looked horrible on me…

  2. I really like that color. I have something like it – Covergirl Lip Perfection Fairytale. Do you remember when Sephora used to carry Bourjois?! 😦 I started to really like the line until they stopped selling it. Although, it’s a great excuse for a swap 😉

    • If you want this colour i can send i to you aswell, no probem.

      @ Holly I love it that you like this lipstick as much as i do 🙂 the colour looks great on you!! Everytime i am so happy when i see you wearing this in video’s. Finally got my hands on a Flower lipstick wich is even more bright. I told you about that my friend Stephanie brought that for me in the US 🙂
