Bourjois Rouge Edition Souffle de Velvet Liquid Lipsticks

40 comments
One of my favourite everday lip products is my Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet liquid lipstick in Nude-ist, so when I noticed that Bourjois had brought out a new variation of this range earlier in the year, I couldn't help but take a look.

While the original formula is a liquid lipstick with a matte finish, the new Souffle de Velvet version gives a sheer and hydrating wash of colour. I think I've mentioned in a recent post that I'm not a huge fan of sheer lip products, simply because my lips are quite pigmented naturally and they just don't show up that well on me. Even so, some of the shades looked so pretty that I couldn't resist, and so bright and vibrant that I thought they might just work, even on me. I chose 03 VIPeach, an orange colour, and 06 Cherry leaders, a lovely pinky red.

You can see from the swatches how sheer these are, and also the difficulty in getting an even application, which I must confess annoys me a bit. The original formula applies like a dream, but with these, the sponge applicator seems to push all the product to the edges of your lips. Nevertheless, you can get a decent coverage with a bit of perseverance, and you can build the intensity up a little bit too.

Here's Cherry leaders on my lips.

And here's VIPeach.

The difference between the two isn't quite as obvious on my lips as it is on my hand, but I think you can still see it - just! These are very pretty, subtle colours with a matte finish, and they're lovely for spring and summer. Longevity isn't the greatest, but on the other hand, they do seem to wear quite nicely.

I can't say I'm overwhelmed by these, but I do like them and I'm sure I will get my wear out of them over the warmer months. If you're a fan of sheer and/or matte lip products then I would still recommend checking them out. There's a total of 8 shades in the range, from a very light orange (Orangelique) to more of a berry tone (Plum Plum Pidou).

Have you tried anything from the Souffle de Velvet range?

  4. I used to get Bourjois products when I was back in my home country and I use to love them! Too bad I can't find them here in the US. These look so cute!

  5. I don't think I'll be giving these a try because I am not a fan of sheer lip products. I like my lip products to be very intense and I've only seen one shade that I like so far.

    1. I agree about sheer lip products if I'm honest. These are quite nice examples, but give me a proper lipstick any day! x

  6. I am with you on preferring opaque lip products. I feel like you can always sheer them out, but the sheer ones aren't possible to build up.

    1. I completely agree - opaque ones are far more versatile. I was able to build these up a little bit, but it is hard to do with a sheer formula, and why make work for yourself?! x

  7. Cherry leaders looks beautiful on you! I'm not crazy about sheer lip products but would like to try the originals of these - I'm way behind the times! xx

  9. I received one of the original Velvets in a swap and I quite like it. But I've been into sheer color lately so j think I'd like these. Wish we had access to the brand here though...seems like they make some really fantastic products....
