Get used to seeing this shade on my lips because I blooming love it. I would genuinely wear this for the rest of my life. There it is. Review over.
Ok I'll tell you a bit more... No doubt you have seen the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks around on blogs or in the shops and I am yet to see a bad review. They come in the most beautiful shades (at the moment there are 6 in reds and pinks) and I have also picked up a few more but this is by far my favourite (Ole Flamingo). The colour is perfect for me - a bright reddy pink great for summer.
When I first tried it I found the application a bit difficult, mainly because I used a bit too much product but after a few tries it was easy peasy! The formula glides onto the lips and basically stays put until you decide to remove it. I have worn this for full days without re-applying and it is still there as bright as ever at the end of the day! Amazing. The finish is matte and looks fantastic but is not at all drying and as someone who struggles with dehydrated lips - this is a huge bonus! It is by far my favourite matte finish lip product and I urge you to try it out.
Luckily I have seen on one of my favourite beauty blogs, The Sunday Girl, the there are new shades coming out which is very exciting! I guess this means my lipstick collection will be growing very soon...
