But back to the products in question today. The Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Lacque collection! There were six shades available on the stand I was at and I wanted them all. But as Superdrug were having a 3 for 2 offer, I picked my favourite three. Restraint right there folks.
I don't have any official information on these guys just yet, but I'll update the post as soon as I do. These are the sisters to the Rouge Edition Velvet range that I still love, except these give a glossy finish rather than matte. They have a gel like consistency that feels lovely and cooling on the lips and the applicator has one of those little grooves in it that takes up enough products to apply one layer to the lips easily.
01 - Appechissant
Shade 01, Appechissant, is one of these neutral dusty pink shades that's perfect for everyday wear. It was the least pigmented of the three shades I picked, but I was able to layer a second coat easily. This shall be a shade I carry around in my handbag because it's easy to apply without a mirror and will go with any makeup look.
04 - Vien Si Tu Roses
Shade 04, Vien Si Tu Roses, is a darker, rosy pink shade that didn't apply as easily as the other two. This was quite patchy on the lips and despite applying two layers, it didn't give an even finish on me. I still think it's a gorgeous colour, I just think if there was slightly more pigmentation in the gel, we'd be sorted.
06 - Feeling Reddy
Can you believe I bought a red shade all by myself! Shade 04, Feeling Reddy is a beautiful orange toned red that's pretty perfect in my limited experience with reds. Of the three shades, this was the most pigmented, the least gel-like in texture and went on evenly and easily.
All three shades felt really comfortable on the lips and had a lot of slip in them, thanks to the glossy finish. As these are shiny liquid lipsticks, the staying power isn't that strong, but I don't mind having to reapply them, especially given the lovely cooling sensation on application. What can I say, I like a beauty gimmick!
The Rouge Edition Aqua Lacque collection is in Superdrug now and were €11.65. I went to a Boots on the same day but didn't find them in there yet, so keep your eyes peeled and I'll give you more information as I get it. Overall, these get two thumbs up from Lovely Girlie Bits and I just have to not let myself back into Superdrug just yet or I'll come away with the other three shades!
