I received these lipsticks in the mail from Bourjois in honor of their new line of lipsticks called Rouge Edition. There are 3 themes Preppy, Color Block and Night Out in 18 colors. Preppy has the nude looks, Color Block the hot popping colors and Night Out the sophisticated stylish looks.
I'm not really a lipstick girl more a lipgloss type so we will see how this will turn out.
Let's test it out!
I have the colors 16. Brun Cosmopolitan & 07. Fuchsia Graffiti of the themes Color Block and Night Out and No, Not by choice I don't know if I would have chosen these colors out of 18. But I'm up for a challenge. The first one is a dark brown color and the second is shocking pink. I find it very important to think about the whole look, the eyes, the cheeks and even my clothes. For what occasion I can wear this look, because both colors are very bold, work for me will be out of the question. I decided the first one for a dinner date and the pink for a party-hardy look.
First Look dinner date
I will go for the softer nude look and I decided to combine this lipstick with an eye shadow trio in the same brown shades and gold accents. I've finished the look with a thinner eye-liner and nude colored rouge for the cheeks.
After putting on the first lipstick the first thing that popped in mind was the feeling, very soft, like lip balm. Then the pigment, I only had to put on one stroke and it was enough, of course I'm putting on a second just to make sure.
I also tested the lipstick when I'm eating and drinking. Cuz we wouldn't want your lipstick running after one zip, I mean that isn't cute at all. The results were still good, the only thing was that the shine was gone and the color was more matte.
Second Look Party Hardy!!
Uuh this color on my lips was a big No, with my dark skin the color didn't match at all. So to soften the color I used my concealer after applying the lipstick. And it worked out fine, a tip for when you feel that your lipstick is a little bit to bright for you. For this look I want to keep the focus on the lips, so the eyes are black smokey with an exaggeration on the eyeliner. No blush.
All in All the lipsticks have a good quality for a 12,99 euro. The pigment is rich and the structure creamy, easy to apply. The colors last for hours and not scented, which I prefer.
The only thing I would say is that the brown color is very limited with colors for your eyes and clothes. You need to keep it neutral like black, white hmm I don't no about grey. Nope, no grey. You can wear gold, warmer colors. And no reds. You get the picture right.
The colors are really for those who want to stand out and make a statement. Or to accent your style. But there is also the Preppy line which consists solely of nude color, more work appropriate. Maybe I can try that one out an other time.
I do like the fact that you have a whole range of colors and the price is reasonable, especially for some one who isn't a lipstick fanatic, like myself. You will get the change to try it out without spending to much money.
I'm still doubting which one I like more, which look do you prefer on me?
Ha I almost forgot I cut my hair Again! ahaha not obvious at all.
