I couldn't help myself a few weeks ago! I saw this beauty and it felt as if it just jumping off the shelf and into my hands. Let me introduce you to Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in the colour Frambourjoise!
A matte finish lipstick with a light feel. This leaves you with a beautiful intense colour that has a velvet texture to it. It contains evanescent oil so your lips don't dry out and provides a soft second skin finish which is exactly what I'm looking for in a matte lipstick!
I think the packaging is gorgeous and looks high end (maybe that's just my take on it). It certainly stands out among everything else at the display. You can see the colour of your chosen lipstick through the clear plastic and the cap has the colour of the lipstick. It has a slanted applicator which feels strange for a lipstick as I'm used to these for lip glosses not a lipstick.

These contain the most beautiful colours which are so pigmented I can't believe I'm wearing it! I don't usually go for something so bold on my lips and I own the grand total of 4 other lipsticks so to say this is way out of my comfort zone would not be a lie. I have a love/hate relationship with this lipstick. Firstly it applies wet and dries to a matte finish but it can be messy around the lip line so this has taken a bit of mastering on my part. Secondly I think the applicator has too much product on it so it can get really, really messy. There are days I can get it right and when I do I love it. Lastly after 3 hours this fades for me, but looks patchy. So as you can see it really is a love/hate thing going on here. The colours are stunning, the matte finish doesn't dry out my lips, but would advise to exfoliate them just so that the product goes on flawlessly. The packaging itself is very fancy pants but the applicator just does not work for me. The colour looked darker in the packaging compared to when on the lips. It looks red but once applied if verges more on the pinky side (but I like the colour never the less).
