Now for a completely unnecessary purchase, again from Bourjois: Rouge Edition Lipstick in No.11, Fraise Remix. So clearly I have a bit of a love for lipstick, but genuinely it makes me happy when I get a new one and it turns out to be a great consistency and the perfect shade- I think I've found that in this little beauty. First off, I love the packaging. It appealed to me in the same way brightly coloured sweets do (I'm actually not a total eejit, I swear) and it's particularly handy that you can tell immediately what colour it is just from the base of it (you know for when you're rummaging in your bag and you may happen to have several lip products floating around there). Fraise Remix is a coral/pink- super bright so not for the faint of heart.
Sometimes I worry that these sort of shades will be almost too neon for my pale skin but like a beautiful Tom Ford coral number I have, I find that this just brightens up my face completely and makes whatever I'm wearing look a bit cooler. This turned out quite pink on my lips in the photo but I can assure you it's much more coral in real life. At the moment I'm in hospital and wearing pyjamas so lipstick isn't really an option but I'm looking forward to wearing this in Spring and Summer.
Formula wise, these are quite soft and creamy, completely non-drying and the good news is that you can just go for a light sheen or build it up for a real pop of colour by applying a couple of layers. As an aside, this smells lovely in the bullet- faintly sweet/floral but that doesn't really transfer to the lips which is a great thing for those who don't like strong fragrances in their make-up.
I'm wearing both the concealer and lipstick in this photo:
Let me know in the comments if you've tried any of these or if there's any particularly lovely shade in the Rouge Edition line that I should be picking up next :)
