Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Laque

27 May 2015

When i saw the new release to the Bourjois Rouge Edition lip range i was instantly drawn in. Im not sure if it was the gorgeous summer shades or the new shiny packaging but i knew i had to try them.
Whereas the Rouge Edition Velvet were a matte formula liquid lipstick, the new Rouge Edition Aqua laque are a liquid lipstick with a glossy finish. 
There are eight shades in the collection i picked three of my favourites 02 Rose on the Rocks a pale nude pink shade thats a great everyday go with everything sort of colour, the hint of pink means it doesn't wash you out and it also goes well over other lipsticks, 08 Babe idole a coralish pink colour thats just a nice in between pink its not too bold and is also very wearable, i think the coral hint makes it a very flattering and pretty shade for Summer, and last but not least 07 Fuchsia perche a pinky/red shade and the brightest of the three, again its a very flattering colour and although bright i think the glossy finish makes it slightly more wearable than a matte formula would be. 
Its the formula of the Aqua Laque that i instantly fell in love with, they are light, moisterising and non-sticky the sort of product that you forget your even wearing. They are incredibly glossy with a high shine finish, i find although they have a good pigmentation it takes a couple of layers for a full even coverage of the lips. Bourjois claim there's no need to line the lips as the formula doesn't bleed, however particularly with the darker shades i just don't think this is true and i think they are not the simplest thing to apply defiantly not a no mirror on the go job. I don't find they last particularly well on the lips but with something this glossy i wouldn't expect them too, the darker colours do leave a slight stain to lips though which is nice. I think they are a great lip product for Summer when you want something a bit lighter, just a simple light wash of colour, they even smell lovely and fruity i will definitely be popping a couple in my holiday makeup bag!
