The Holiest Grail Of Lip Products

L-R : Pink Pong| Hot Pepper | Ole Flamingo






L-R : Ole Flamingo | Hot Pepper | Pink Pong

It is no secret that these practically come everywhere with me. The Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvets. I've been absolutely worshipping these the past couple of months. I won't lie, when I first heard about them, I did just think to myself that these were just another liquid lipstick but oh my, no.  I started off with Pink Pong which is a bright fuchsia, then bought Ole Flamingo which looks very similar on the lips but the packaging shows it as a slightly darker version of Pink Pong and then finally bought Hot Pepper which is a great red ever so slightly verging on orange. 

What I love about these is that I can actually wear a bright lip with confidence without it smudging with the smallest touch, they last well after meals, drinks and everything. I'd say about 75% of it is still left on after meals, which is a substantial amount and only requires a quick top up. Another thing, they don't dry out your lips so if you needed to reapply, you don't have to take the entire thing off, you can just go over the top and it looks as good as new.

I would love to see them expand the collection and hopefully they will because of the explosive hype that has surrounded them recently. I'd love to see them release an orange, and perhaps in A/W a nice deep red, purple and a burgundy! Pretty please, hear me out Bourjois!
