Bourjois is a French makeup brand that is available at certain Clicks stores. They produce high quality products at really reasonable prices. I have used a lot of their products and I have yet to come across one I didn't love. At a recent Bloggers Who Bless event I received two Bourjois products, namely the Rouge Edition Velvet in "Personne ne rouge!" (I already have the shade "Olé Flamingo!", read my review here) and the So Laque Glossy Nail Polish in "Taupe modèle".
The Rouge Edition Velvet's packaging is classy and modern and the doe foot applicator makes application a breeze. The formula is thick and creamy, but not sticky or gloopy. The cream dries quickly and is so comfortable that after a minute or three you don't even realise you have anything on your lips anymore! It lasts throughout the day, even with eating or drinking. Wiping your lips is a no-no, because some of the colour might transfer to the rest of your face, but the majority of the lipstick does not budge. A proper rub with makeup remover is needed to take this off at the end of the day.
The colour is called "Taupe modèle" and is light grey with a purple undertone. The formula is creamy and application was easy. Two coats left me with a beautiful (non-streaky) opaque finish. It did however not live up to its "10 day wear" claim, but that being said; I think my nails are polish repellent. I am constantly washing my hands and using my nails to pry things open, and nail polish never lasts, so I can't say that it's completely the nail polish's fault!

Until next time!
