The Bourjois Rouge Edition 12 Hour Lipstick

L-R 30 Prune Afterwork, 31 Beige Shooting, 28 Pamplemousse, 32 Rose Vanity, 35 Entry VIP, 34 Cherry My Cherie

Calling all lipstick lovers! I've got something you might just like in today's post... Bourjois have released a new range of their Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipsticks in a new longer lasting formula! 

Perfect for the new colder seasons coming in and in beautiful transitional shades there's nothing not to love with this collection. With a semi matte finish, the lipsticks aren't drying on the lips but they still last really well. I always opt for a matte lip wherever I can and I know it can be a bit of a pain in the colder months, but they last so much better and I just love the look of them. This is where this lipstick comes in as it's enriched with Shea Butter (my favourite!) to keep the lips hydrated along with colour-fixing silk powders to make sure it lasts! I can't say I've tested it out for 12 hours without reapplying, and I can't imagine I will. 

The shades are gorgeous. Perfect for all year round but it's the more transitional shades like 30 Prune Afterwork and 31 Beige Shooting that totally caught my eye. I know right, me liking nude lipsticks, what?! There's just something about these. Perhaps I just hadn't find the right 'nude' for me, but now I totally get what a 'your lips but better' shade really is. ITS THESE! and I cannot get enough... I haven't tried out the other shades as of yet. The red in 34 Cherry My Cherie is totally gorgeous, but I have a bit of a relationship with another red at the moment that I can't quite shake (post coming soon... and Sephora, I'm looking at you). 

Pamplemousse is back! The shade launched in 2000 and was discontinued in 2007 much to many peoples dismay. But now its back and I thought some of you may be quite happy to hear that. Unfortunately it's not my kind of shade, these peachy shades just don't work with my skin and it just looks a bit odd but I do know it works so well with so many people and so I thought it was worth a little mention. 

Overall, I love this range. Really beautiful shades, of course they're not all suited to me and they're not all something I'd wear but when would that actually happen? Gorgeous texture and finish and they last well. These lipsticks are right up my street and I can imagine I'll be getting so much use out of them. Well done Bourjouis, these are a goodn'!

What is your favourite shade?
