New Goodies: Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet

I really need to ban myself from Priceline this month (for those of you not in Australia, it’s a drugstore – kinda like Boots) because look what I have done! Liquid lipsticks that dry matte and last for hours? I couldn’t resist! They remind me ofΒ OCC Lip Tars quite a bit, because they look satiny on application but ‘matte out’ during wear time. If you do a swatch of these in store, you will also notice that they will stain your hand – that’s how pigmented and long lasting they are! I bought so many because they were on sale you see… These babies retail for $24.00 which isn’t el cheap by any means. Priceline has been doing many promotions on these though and at one point you could buy all Bourjois lip products for $10 a pop. Currently they are going for $16.80, so definitely buy these when they are on sale and save your pennies.

I originally only bought 03 Hot Pepper and 06 Ping Pong because they were the only colours left at my local store (I also hate it when drug stores have messy stands or aren’t stocked properly – just a pet peeve of mine…). I bought them without thinking really as Hot Pepper is a firey red I wouldn’t wear. Ping Pong is a hot cool toned pink, which I am also a bit iffy about. Because I wasn’t satisfied with my purchases, when I could go into another Priceline store I bought more colours (even though the original plan was to only by 2 in total!). And here we are today lol I have 6 colours in total and I think there is 8 colours in this line altogether. I can divide my ‘collection’ into 3 reds and 3 pinks which worked out well lol I will most definitely be passing Hot Pepper onto a friend (who looks gorgeous in firey reds) and maybe Ping Pong also.

So first up, the reds <3




Frome left to right: Shade 01 Personne ne rouge (which according to google translate to: no red *confusionΒ enfolds*), 02 Frambourjoise (I could not find a translation of this lol) and 03 Hot Pepper.


01 is like a classic red that’s neither too cool nor too warm. I think this would be a fab red for anybody. 02 is like a strawberry/raspberry red and 03 is a cool firey red. These ‘lipsticks’ come packaged in this tight plastic wrapping which is really difficult to get off. In the case of 01 the plastic wrapping pretty much melted onto the lipstick packaging, so it was almost impossible to get it all off (hence you can see some plastic still stuck to the edges grrrr I fought long and hard to get it all off!).

And now for the pinks πŸ™‚



From left to right: Shade 05 Ole Flamingo!, 06 Ping Pong and 07 Nude-ist.


05 is a fuchsia pink while 06 is a hot cool toned pink. 07 is a nude pink – like a rosey tea brown (I’m not sure if that description makes any sense whatsoever lol).

Swatches from a different angle –Β P1000058

The only colours I don’t have are 04 Peach Club (I can’t remember if I saw this one in person) and 08 Grand Cru, a deep cool toned red (I think). You can check out the whole collection on Priceline’s website here. If I use any of these colours for ‘makeup looks’ you will be sure to see them here πŸ™‚


Do you own any of the Rouge Edition Velvet? Do any of the colours ‘speak to you’? πŸ™‚ Let me know your thoughts!

Catch ya next time beauties!

  1. Hi I came across your blog and I absolutely love it. You are so stunning and your blog really is amazing. Maybe you could check out mine? πŸ™‚

    • Oh thank you – you are to sweet πŸ˜‰ Your blog is great to! I’ll have to have more of a snoop around πŸ˜‰ Are you in Aus? πŸ™‚

      • Ohhh I see! I just couldn’t pick it πŸ™‚

  2. Ooooh I love these! I only have N4 but I think the formula is amazing. You got me lemming for N7!

    • Oh so you have one of the two colours which I don’t have? Is N4 very peachy? πŸ™‚

  3. These are such fantastic colours! I’ll have to check this range out. Didn’t know Bourjois did the lip tar kinda thing. I love a bold lip! <3

    • It’s more like a satin/matte liquid lipstick but something about them reminds me of lip tars! Maybe it’s both the pigmentation, staining and staying power? Either way, these are easier to use to πŸ˜‰ Let me know if you end up getting any πŸ™‚ *waves*

  4. I had trouble with the plastic packaging too (grrr). I actually ruined my nails trying to get the plastic wrap off, lol. Still I like these very much. The scent however is questionable (and my only criticism).

    • Oh no! That’s what I was worried about to lol Two of the ‘lipsticks’ still have plastic around the corners as I just gave up trying to peel it off – it wasn’t worth the pain! A fruity scent would have been nice but alas πŸ˜‰

      • I guess they shrink wrapped the lipstick case with heat which bonded the two plastics together (grr again). Just thinking about other people cursing at the same time is kind of funny, haha πŸ™‚ #beautyloverproblems πŸ™‚

      • haha yes! That along with messy makeup stands *grrr* πŸ˜›

    I’m a sucker for a beautiful coral lippy and it looks like you found it.

    PS – I too have to ban myself from Priceline sometimes, it’s just so tempting x

    • Oh really – which one has caught your eye? πŸ™‚

      I’m actually thinking about imposing a ‘challenge’ on myself which includes not spending more than $100 on beauty products in one month – but I’m scared lol

    “personne ne Rouge” is a word play with “personne ne Bouge” which translates “Nobody moves” (what gangsters usually say when they do an hold up) and Frambourjoise is another word play with the contraction of 2 words Framboise (rasperry) and Bourjois which is the trade mark (they just have to put the “ourj” between the “framb” and the “oise”). Coming after the battle but maybe you still wanted to know ?
    Got the Ole flamingo one and as I wanted to buy another shade I was looking for some swatches. Pink Pong looks good but I was wondering if Hot Pepper has orange undertone like Lady Danger from MAC ? Then I would definitely get it…

    • Oh thank you for that – your explanations of the names makes sooo much more sense! I like how playful they are to πŸ™‚

      Hot Pepper does have a slight orange undertone to – I compared the swatches of both on my hand and would say that Hot Pepper has a teeny tiny bit more orange in it than Lady Danger (but only slightly)! Hope that helps πŸ™‚ *waves*
