Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet 'So Hap'pink'


Hello lovely, today's post is all about the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Liquid Matt Lipstick in the shade So Hap'pink. Generally I like to use lip colours that are neutral or soft pink. I've started to adventure a little more into darker shades, but never do I go for a bright vibrant shade. When I purchased this shade I was expecting it to be a slightly neutral pink. On my lips it appears more like a bright pink, but not like a barbie pink. It's brighter than the shades I had previously worn but still wearable on my skin tone. I should also mention that when I began wearing this lipstick I would simply use the applicator and swipe it over my lips. I then discovered that if I used my finger afterwards to somewhat blend it out it appeared much more flattering. That's something I do with most lip products now as it just works better in my personal opinion.

This is supposed to be a lipstick with a matt finish and although it dries down matt it doesn't feel tight on my lips. It's actually quite comfortable to wear. However, this product doesn't have a very long wear time. I feel like this doesn't last that long on my lips, maybe 1-2 hours. The packaging makes it easy to bring along in my purse anyway if I want to reapply. If I have dry lips before applying it can look a bit patchy, so I make sure to either use a lip balm or the NYX lip primer. If I have a lip balm on it applies nicely and doesn't fade off patchy (again, only if I've used a balm or primer under). More on the packaging, I actually really like it. The screw on lid is great as I don't have to worry about it accidentally slipping off. I like that it's simple, sleek and just visually appealing. 



The consistency is soft and almost like mousse. I'm not entirely sure how to describe this texture, it's kind of airy and not at all liquidy. It's very smooth to apply. I found that if I dot the product on the centre of both my top and bottom lip then use my finger to blend it out, the finish ends up being quite gorgeous! Now that I've found the best way to apply this product I might look at trying some other shades. I got mine when I was in Switzerland but I know they sell them in Priceline for $19.20. I couldn't find this particular shade online anymore but I haven't checked in stores yet. They do however stock a nice range of shades.

Let me know in the comments if you have any recommendations! xx

  12. I heard a lot about these when they came out, but I thought the lasting power was longer! The shade does sound quite nice, and they do quite a few deeper ones for Winter that I like the look of :) xx

    1. The lasting power wasn't that great on me, could be different for others though! I'll be trying some other shades and maybe the lasting power is different ahah! xx
