Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick // Top Three // 04, 17 & 18.


Left to right:
18 Violine Strass
04 Rose Tweed
17 Rose Millesime 
£7.99 each

I don't usually pay much attention to drugstore brand lipsticks - I prefer high end brands where they are laid out on the counter perfectly, as a mosaic of colours. Shades are easy to see, but after hearing about these I had to give them a fraction of my attention and I have to say I'm pleasantly surprised. 
I picked up these three, and was glad to find that they're very well pigmented, lustrous to apply, with a glossy finish. They're also quite long lasting, though a little drying after a while.

I think my favourite is number 04, a gorgeous nude colour thats not too pale, its perfect for day-to-day application. 18 is the perfect plum colour, though it comes up a little pinker than I expected on my lips, and 17 is a lovely rose pink perfect to brighten up any look.

They were £5.99 each when I bought them, and Boots usually have 3 for 2 offers on anyway, so I'd say these are great value for money! I'm not sure I'd pay £8 each for them as I still love setting my eyes on a wide range of easy-to-pick shades from Lancome, Mac or YSL, but I still want the entire Rouge Edition collection, and when they're on offer again I may just be tempted to buy a few more! 

A girl can never have too much lipstick, eh?
Have you tried these? Which is your favourite?

  1. These look so nice :) I think Violene Strass is my favourite :) x

  2. Love these shades, I migght have to pick them up next time I accidentally fall into boots :P.
    I have 13 and its an incredible red colour but I've not had chance to wear it yet. Those colours look much more wearable.


  3. These are so nice, I have number 03 and it is gorgeous :)

    Rose Tweed really looks so natural on you, a very everyday shade.
