If you recall a couple of weeks ago, I blogged about the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick in Frambourjoise, and I mentioned that I was lemming for Grand Cru & Ole Flamingo too? Guess what landed in the mailbox soon after?
Say hello to the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks in Grand Cru & Ole Flamingo! I wont run through the whole review again, I’ve raved plenty in my previous post on them, which you can read here.
Just to recap for any new readers here, the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks are amazeballs for all the following reasons:
They’re a bold matte lipstick with enhanced colour that dries to a soft velvety finish.
They feel lightweight on the lips. (as if you’re not wearing any lipstick at all)
They do not dry out the lips like other matte lipsticks.
And the most important fact, is that they last FOREVER on your lips. (proven fact yo)
Grand Cru is described as a dark burgundy red, tinged with pink for a bright touch that makes it easy to wear.
Swatches of Grand Cru & Ole Flamingo.
As you can see, Grand Cru applies very clumpy, as I have mentioned in my previous post, which did put me off purchasing it. But to my utter surprise, it glides on as smooth as butter on my lips! Anyone care to explain how or why, because I’m dumbfounded by that fact. I guess lip products should be swatched on lips,where they belong, and not on my arm.
Swatches of the rest of the shades, just in case 😉
Personal Thoughts: I cant get enough of these babies! I already have 3 of the 8 shades now, and I’m planning to collect all 8 ASAP. The chemical scent of the product still irks me, but considering it dissapears soon after, I don’t mind it.
