Bourjois Shine Edition Lipstick

For summer 2013, the most couture lipstick from Bourjois becomes available in a Shine version, with lots of prettiness in store…

         A new shine in the Rouge Edition range that colours lips in dazzling shades like never before,
·         a innovative texture that provides the comfort of a balm,     housed in super sleek packaging.

“A new generation formula that brings shine, colour and comfort to your lips. An ultra-shine result, thanks to a new  ¼ gloss extract for amazing shine-wrapped colour. The new sensuous formula gives ultimate comfort. Enriched with nourishing mango butter extracts, Shine Edition leaves lips moisturised for up to 10 hrs**.Its rich and melting formula provides cushion comfort and makes application addictive! And the icing on the cake…It’s shiny, coloured packaging makes Shine Edition lipstick a true fashion accessory”

Bourjois formula has a glossy soft finish to its lipstick. With such a soft formula you would expect a little slip and slide but the Shine Edition lipsticks stay put for 2 hours per application without bleeding or clinging to dry areas of the lips. However, I thought it would be better if it could last longer as it didn't have a high staying power. The lipstick is extremely moisturizing that I didn't have to apply a lip balm prior to application. Each lipstick promises radiant, glossy shine with the comfort of a lip balm on application.

8 fresh and vibrant shades, I'm swatching 6 of them

n°20 - 1,2,3 soleil : a vibrant burst of coral, this summer's colour.
n°21 - Rouge making of : an ultra-dense and luminous poppy strawberry red, without pearlescence.
n°23 - Grenade in : a deliciously elegant pomegranate red, without pearlescence, for lips that look good enough to eat!
n°25 - Mauve tabloïd : a pearly, soft and light Burghandy shade for an elegant fall look.
n°26 - Beige démocrachic : easy to wear nude beige, subtly heightened with fine silvery pearlescence for unbelievable shine. Pink Undertones.
       n°27 - Oh my doll : an ultra-fresh, slightly whitened pink speckled with fine silvery pearlescence for babydoll lips! Blue undertones

Pigmentation is sheer , but buildable, yet not that of the opacity that I like. However, I'm the kind of person who would rather like the buildable layers rather than an extreme opacity that I will try all night to make it lighter and not that dense on my lips. Once applied, it leaves a glossy effect on your lips and  after a few hours it leaves a slight stain to your lips. I highly recommend this product :)
