Bourjois So Delicate Lip Cream

Late last year I indulged in a 'little' fix with some Bourjois products. Picked up their Lip Creams in two shades: Rose Veloute, and Rose Poudre, as well as the LE blush from their Asos exclusive collection.

I found the lip creams to be rather unique, so I thought these should be reviewed in more depth here:



Swatches on skin

Left to right: Rose Veloute, Rose Poudre

These lip creams go on creamy but dry to a matte, opaque finish. They have the faint rose smell typically found in most Bourjois products, which you either love or hate :)

53 Rose Veloute


Neutral brown. Very similar to Korres Guava Lipstick in 34 Nude, and MAC's Mattene lipstick in Flattering (LE from 2007)

51 Rose Poudre


Medium rosey pink. Looks like a matte version of Chanel Rouge Allure Laque #76 Ming

What I love about these:
- Good pigmentation and coverage.
- Excellent range of colours (check them out here)

What I don't like so much:

- Will emphasize dryness so it is best used on exfoliated or moisturized lips.
- Doe's foot applicator - not as sanitary as a lipstick, but then most liquid lipsticks come in this format, including Chanel.


I would recommend these if you are looking for matte, highly pigmented lip colours :)

Rose Poudre looks so pretty! You are right, reminds me of Chanel Rouge allure Laque #76 Ming, which I have, but have neglected it so much. :/

Your lips are sooo beautifully shaped (did I say this before?)! :)
