Review | Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet - Pink Pong

by - May 20, 2014

Bourjois - Pink Pong (£8.99)

I've been going a bit crazy on the Boots and Superdrug 3 for 2 offers these past couple of days.. it's pure evil! A few weeks ago my friend was searching for a new lipstick and came across the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet collection and purchased one in 'Ole Flamingo'. It looked so nice on her that I decided I needed it too. I tried it on and realised it looked almost exactly the same as my Rimmel Apocalips lip lacquer in 'Apocalyptic' so instead I picked up Pink Pong and well.. here we are today!

For me, if it's not matte, it's not going on my lips. When first trying on Pink Pong, I wasn't very pleased as it was shiny and very pigmented. After a couple of seconds it dried up and became this amazing, bold, matte pinky/purple colour and instantly became one of my all time favourite lip products! (The pictures aren't even close to how amazing it looks)

Bourjois say they leave lips feeling "smooth" and "soft as velvet" which I half agree with as they have these effects but can feel a tad sticky when rubbing lips together. They also claim to last for 24 hours without needing constant touch-ups which I'd completely agree with. Whilst wearing this I had a meal and didn't even need to re-apply after. One major downfall to lipstick is when it gets on your teeth but I've not had this problem with this lip lacquer, it's so  incredibly matte and not at all drying so it'll be perfect for summer.

I've had some lovely comments on this already and will definitely be purchasing more. I do wish they had more colours in this range though as it's basically what I've been searching for my whole life!
