Review: Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet 04 Peach Club21:58
I think it was just the matter of time, when this will happen. Yep, I got another Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet. I already reviewed 01 Personne ne rouge! Those matte liquid lipsticks got a lot of hype and praise in the blogger community. You may have already seen a lot of shades. The one that I decided to get, is 04 Peach Club and for some reason, I think it's not the most popular shade. But I really like it.
It's pointless to do a long review, because I already explained it in the review of shade 01. The packaging is plastic lip gloss square bottle. It has regular doe foot applicator and it's travel friendly. You can see the actual shade through the transparent plastic.
The price is 13.99€ (did it go up, or does the price differ between shops?), but I bought it with a coupon for only 7€. You'll get 6.7 ml of product.
Peach Club it's a coral shade, which tends to lean more toward orange or peach coral. Shade looks fairly different in the packaging. In the packaging it's very muted and fairly light, while on the hands it looked very bright and a lot darker. I've been wanting to get another shade for so long, but I always decided that there is no more me shades. I was wrong. This is so my kind of shade. My feeling is that this could look more pink based coral on cooler skin tones. On my skin it naturally gravitates to peach.
On the contrary to 01 Personne ne rouge, this shade goes on evenly and dries that way too. Firstly, it's very creamy and has shine to it. After about 20 minutes, it dries to a perfect matte finish. No tightening, no heavy feeling and no cracks. Only even, weightless and matte finish. I'll say, if you're lips are very dry, you may feel a bit of dryness after long hours. Maybe put a light lip balm layer over it, if you dislike the feeling or are afraid of cracked lips. This is my never ending story with matte lipsticks.
The formula makes for a very long lasting lipstick, but it won't survive eating. It has a very artificial unpleasant chemical smell, which fortunately doesn't stay and linger on the lips. It's just the application that it's, well, smelly.
I think, we can all agree that this is definitely more my kind of shade and probably the most my kind of shade out of the whole range. I don't mind the classic red, but this is more my every day bright shade.
