My go to lip products: Featuring Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet and Maybelline's Color Elixirs


If you are in need of the perfect bold lip, or glossy nude then look no further! When I first saw these lip products in the stores I was instantly drawn to them. It must of been the small, sleek packaging but once I saw the colours I was compelled to buy them(Consumerism at its finest, ladies). So naturally I wanted to make a blog post featuring two of my favourite lip products of the moment. Which coincidently, appear to be similar products but from different brands. 


When I was over in England last month I had a look around in boots and picked up one of the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks in the shade 04 Peach Club and I haven't put it down since, using it at any chance I could get, especially on a night out. The formula is a matt finish and slightly velvety as the name suggests, but applies wet so you can really get a precise application. Best of all it stays in place and does not move, so its perfect for dinner dates. 

The second is the Maybelline Color Elixir Color Sensational Creamy Lip Lacquer in the shade 060 Nude illusion which is the perfect glossy nude. I seem to be reaching for this product whenever I'm opting out of a bold lip and want something a little less vibrant. It doesn't last as long as the Rouge Edition, but that's to be expected for a lacquer. But as you can see, it's such a lovely colour and really makes your lips stand out. I'd love to try more colours in the range so if you guys have any recommendations let me know!

  11. I just got a Rimmel lip laquer in Big Bang ... great for a quick pop of red and highly pigmented but doesn't stay on as long as I would like. I also find it a confusing product but I am sure I will work out a way to keep it on my lips for longer than an hour!

  12. Nude Illusion is perfect!
    I myself only use nudes. Anything else I feel is too overpowering, especially with my glasses.
    I usually use a Dior gloss in a Nude shade. I dont have it on me so I forget the actually name :x
