Love a matte lip but can’t stand liquid lipsticks?
Then you ought to check out these BOURJOIS ROUGE EDITION VELVET LIPSTICKS! Like the name suggest, these lipsticks have a velvety finish. I would say these are the comfortable versions of liquid lipsticks. I’m sure you are pretty familiar with these, as they have been around for a long while now! Alrighty, nuff’ said! ^^ Shall we take a look at the swatches? 🙂

This is a new shade! It is a bright orange shade! I think this is a youthful and fun color 🙂
These lipsticks have a velvety finish as claimed. I really like the formula. They feel super comfortable on the lips, not drying at all. If you like a matte look but find liquid lipsticks too drying for you, then you will love these Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks!
My TOP 5 shades are 07 Nude-ist, 12 Beau Brun, 18 It’s Redding Men!, 19 Jolie-de-vin and 20 Poppy Days (new shade).
For some shades like 14 Plum Plum Girl, 16 Honey Mood and even 19 Jolie-de-vin, I recommend using a lip liner because it can look a bit patchy. However, I don’t mind it at all because I can take my time to layer it on.
Oh also, these lipsticks take a while to “dry” down (but not completely), so you can take your time to perfect it. For better illustration, they feel a bit similar to Peripera Airy Ink Velvets (but do not have the same staining power). So if you love those, I think you’ll enjoy these too! 🙂
One last thing is that they do (slightly) transfer. However, the lipstick remains strong on the lips after drinking with a straw. The lasting power is better than a lot of traditional lipsticks. You will need to touch up/re-apply after a meal.
Hope you find this review helpful 🙂 Do let me know your fav shades and feel free to share this!
