A Bit Of Lippy? Bourjois Rouge Edition

Hello Lovelies!

Boy am I excited to share this one with you today! My most favourite things to purchase are lipsticks, they're so pretty and feminine, and what can I say, wearing lippy just makes me feel like a laaadyyy. Flashbacks of stealing your mums lipsticks and high heels to be "a grown up" anyone? This is how I feel when I put on a new lipstick, the same excitement of dressing up with my mums clothes when I was little and suddenly feeling like I'm a real lady. Ready to go drink tea out of china cups and do other related important things that a lady must do. Let me introduce you to the Bourjois Rouge Edition lipsticks, anything which has french words in the title is already chic in my book. 

Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick in number 17 Rose millésime




Word of warning ladies! If you light a candle to add extra ambiance *says in french accent* to your lipstick photo shoot, watch your hair! Leaning over to take photos over the candle resulted in me singeing my fringe! not a good free hair cut I can tell you that much.

 Anyway back to the matter in hand here, these lipsticks are a real delight! I'm so happy with the colour I picked up "Number 17 Rose Millésime". I'm probably making this up here, but I'd describe it as a peachy rose pink. It's super soft on the lips and feels hydrating and leaves a beautiful sheen. My lips are a bit dry at the moment but this didn't make it any worse, it was really lovely to wear. So lets talk staying power, as with a lot lip products this doesn't last through eating or drinking. I'd say it would last a good hour or two and then you'd need to go in and touch up. But who doesn't enjoy putting more lipstick on? I know its one of my favourite hobbies anyway! This is a really flattering colour against the skin too, subtly brightening and feminine.




The Bourjois comes in 19 gorgeous colours, it was so hard to chose! Definitely going to pick up more of these, I'd rate them 10/10.  I picked mine up from my local Nocibé here in France for €12.

  12. It looks so pretty on you! I love a good pale pink lipstick!

    Oh no! Setting fire to hair is the worst, it smells SO bad! My cat set fire to his tail by walking past a candle. Awful. I hope your fringe survived its ordeal!

  18. ooooooh very pretty! I'm definitely more of a lip stain girl than a lip stick. It's hard for me to not wipe lipstick off. ha! I'm madly in love with Revlon's Just Bitten stains though. Madly in love.
