Bourjois Aqua Laque Lipsticks

I am a bit late to the party, but I finally got round to reviewing Bourjois Aqua Laque Lipsticks* (£8.99 each). They look very similar to the Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks, but the formula and the finish are totally different. If you love glossy lips, you have to give these a go!

Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Lipsticks are available in 8 shades, from nudes to reds and pinks. All absolutely stunning and perfect for Spring/Summer. They apply like a dream and feel super hydrating on the lips. The feeling of hydration is instant and lasts for up to 10hours! The liquid formula is very light, but provides a decent colour pay-off and a mirror like finish. I am in love! These aren't as pigmented as the matte Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks, but they are equally lovely and might appeal to you more, if you are not into matte lips. The lighter shades provide subtle colour, while the darker reds and pinks can be built up for a more vibrant, opaque effect.

I am a big fan of the applicator as well and I find it very easy and pleasant to use. And just in case you are worried about stickiness - there is none! The lipsticks feel very comfortable on the lips, initially very wet which I really like. The glossy/wet effect lasts on me for about 2-3 hours, leaving a subtle stain of colour for further 2-3 hours.

Left to right: shades 1, 6, 7, 8.
Wearing a couple of layers of shade 07 - Fuchsia Perche.

Overall - it is LOVE! If you are looking for a new hydrating lip product with a gorgeous shine, you can pick up the Bourjois Aqua Laque Lipsticks from Boots (2 for £14.00) or Superdrug  who currently have a 3 for 2 offer on all makeup + a free makeup bag too! Too hard to resist, right?
