Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick

The other day I decided I was going to post on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and then my happy post on Sundays however I already haven't managed to stick to that. However you get 2 posts today as I've reposted one from my old blog. 

Anyways, today I decided to write a post on by far my favourite lipstick at the moment, Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick. Ever Since I bought these one of them has been on my lips.

I'm a massive fan of the velvet lip trend at the moment and my love started with the Lime Crime Velvetine which I reviewed here. I do adore my Lime Crime but at £13.50 they are a tad pricey.

Bourjois version are amazing and I think I may even prefer them to Lime Crime (I'm planning a comparison post soon and including MUAs version).

These are £8.99 each but Superdrug currently have a 3 for 2 offer on all makeup or buy 1 get the 2nd half price on Bourjois stuff so what are you waiting for, go go go.  

So on to the actual review.

Considering these are matte they are so creamy. They go on like a dream, feel amazing on and aren't drying at all. They have a doe foot applicator which is really easy to use and makes application nice and simple. When I first applied the red I was really disappointed as it came out quite sheer but when I put on another coat and waited for it to dry (2 mins tops) I was amazed by the colour pay off. If you are a lover of bright lipsticks then these are for you but don't worry if you're not as they do a few more neutral shades. 

The lasting time on these is amazing. I wore mine on a night out and didn't have to top up once through eating & drinking (quite a lot). I also may have fallen asleep in my make-up (shh don't tell anyone) and woke up with my lipstick still on and not smudged up my face. When it does fade it fades evenly to a gorgeous stain. The only downside I have found with this is it does stain. When I take my make-up off night I do end up with a bit of a stained lip.

I have Hot Pepper and Pink Pong and I think Hot pepper is my favourite but it's a close one. Hot Pepper is definitely my most worn Red lipstick at the moment
