In my last drugstore haul I got the Bourjois Rouge Laque, Bourjois is one of my favourite drugstore brands. I was in Superdrug when the high end, sleek packaging caught my eye, I just had to try one. Here are my thoughts…
The packaging is super sleek and defiantly feels high end, it’s plastic but doesn’t feel cheap. I love how the packaging matches the shade inside which makes finding the shade you want so much easier. I got the shade 02 TOUTE NUDE, this is a deep muted pink shade that’s bold but still wearable. The Rouge Laque liquid lipsticks have a shiny finish and claims to be lightweight, non-sicky and last up to 16hrs! I have totally fallen in love with this formula, the more you apply the more glossy and shiny it looks. I really like how a stain ( it looks like you’ve just ate a popsicle!) is left after the shiny finish has worn off, making this great for a night out or when your eating out, so you don’t have to keep reapplying, you’ll always have colour on your lips. If you apply a tiny amount you get a bit of colour and also the stain.
The doe foot applicator is easy to use and applies a good amount of product. The liquid lipstick has a scent, it’s quite strong (kinda fruity I guess, can’t put my finger on it!) but goes away when you put it on. The formula is creamy, non drying and packs some serious shine. You can’t feel it on your lips and because of the stain it leaves, you have to apply at least two coats to get the best shine, the first layer goes on with an almost satin finish, but by the second coat it’s super shiny. If you want a comfortable liquid lipstick that is very shiny, but not drying give this a go!
