Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lips

In many ways, I'm pretty good at resisting peer pressure - I've never smoked, I'm happy to be the only person to not go on a roller coaster - but every now and then I do find myself getting caught up in the moment and doing something I said I wouldn't. Hence the new additions to my make up collection:
longest lasting lip colour

I didn't need the Bourjois Rougue Edition Velvet Lipsticks, and I had no intention of buying them - but when I found myself in a Superdrug in Kendal with a gaggle of giddy bloggers I somehow came away with two of them before I even realised what was happening - and I couldn't be more pleased!

There's lots of good things about these clever products - great colours, easy application, gorgeous matte finish, but the best thing about them by far is their crazy staying power! This is shade #1 - Personne Ne Rouge - freshly applied...

And this is what it looks like after 6 hours, four cups of tea, a big Sunday dinner and a bowl of ice cream - not bad right?! Sure it's a little less fresh - but the fact its still visible at all impressed me no end.

The beautiful classic red Personne Ne Rouge was the one I initially had my eye on but in Superdrug these were buy one, get one half price so it just made sense to get another while I was there (RRP is £8.99) - and settled on gorgeous raspberry red/pink shade Frambourjoise.

Sorry the pictures aren't the greatest by the way, I don't know what was going on with my camera but hopefully you get the basic idea!

There's another four shades on top of these and I think between our group we had them all covered! Each are gorgeous in their own way and I certainly wouldn't mind picking up a couple more! They're still on buy one get one half price at Superdrug, and on 3 for 2 at Boots so it's the perfect time to get them!


  1. I caved to all your peer pressure too haha. I just bagged my self the red one and the peach one today, the staying power on these is CRAZY.
