Late last year I indulged in a 'little' Asos.com 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 :)
