Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipsticks - 02 Beige Trench, 03 Peche Cosy, 11 Fraise Remix, photos, swatches, review!

After meeting the Bourjois team a few weeks ago and seeing their lipstick case with all 17 shades of their new Rouge Edition lipsticks, I knew I had to try some out myself.  Especially after swatching about six of them on the back of my hand and making "Ooh" noises.  The 17 shades are broken down into three trends, Preppy which has the nudes, Colour Block which is full of bright shades and Night Out if you want darker, more sophisticated shades.  And I've just realised they're numbered from 02 to 18.  I wonder why there's no numbero 01?

Anyway, these are the three I chose on my Superdrug visit recently and let me just say how much I love the packaging.  Simple and lightweight.  Each shade is enriched with orchid blossom extract which allows them to glide on easily and promises up to 10 hours of hydration.  I don't think I've ever left a lip product on for that long what with eating and drinking and all.

The best part of the packaging is the bottom which not only shows the colour of your lipstick, but also the number.  So I store mine upside down for quick access.

You know I love a good nude lipstick and shade 02, Beige Trench is a light rosy nude that is much more flattering than the flesh toned nudes that make one look like a corpse.  This has enough purple and pink in it to give life to your face and it's one of my favourite nude lippies in my collection already.

We know I love peachy lips and so shade 03, Peche Cosy, had to be mine.  Sometimes I find nude and peach lipsticks can be too creamy and end up sliding all over my lips but the texture of the Rouge Editions are almost satin so I still get colour but with a light glossy finish.

Can you believe I bought a bright shade too?!  Shade 11, Fraise Remix stole my heart and I think it's my favourite of the three.  It's described as a fruity pink but I think it's a pinky coral shade that's almost watermelon-y.  It's cute and will be perfect for summer and makes me happy.  I don't even feel that self conscious when I'm wearing it!

The Rouge Edition lipsticks give both colour and shine, while feeling lightweight on the lips.  They really are moisturising and feel comfortable.  I've been wearing them applied directly from the tube or sometimes I pat my lips with my finger after applying them to give a lighter finish.

I'd totally recommend checking these guys out.  They're available in March and will be €12.99.
