Bourjois Paris Shine Edition Lipsticks

If you are the kind of girl who stops on the road when passing a parked car, just to get a quick reflexion of herself in the window then high five !! If you are the kind of girl who turns the car rear view mirror to her side to check if her hair is okay, much to the driver’s annoyance then high five !! If you are the kind of girl who likes to see her reflexion in other people’s sunglasses…then..well that’s just wierd honestly. I dont do that. lol.

But chances are, if you do fit anywhere in the above categories, you will love the Bourjois Shine Edition Lipsticks– they come in a highly reflective mirrored tube that all narcissists will absolutely love ! But that is probably the least impressive thing about them, because these babies are freaking awesome !!!

I have two  Bourjois Shine Edition Lipsticks in the  P&B Testing room (aka- the slab next to my dining table ) and these are Grenadine and Soleil 1,2,3 . Grenadine is a pretty magenta, with definite plum-purple undertones which surprisingly end up looking pretty nice on my medium skin tone. Soleil 1,2,3 (reminds me of how those people check microphones in school…Check-1,2,3..Check Check 1,2,3)  is absolutely GORG !!! Its a gorgeous peachy coral that i absolutely adore and highly recommend to everyone !!! The lipsticks have a pretty, high shine finish which is great if you dont like layering glosses on top of your lipsticks.

Another super thing about them- they are super lightweight and feel light as a feather !! Inspite of this they cover up most of my lip pigmentation and 2 swipes is all you need to take you to opaque lipstick la la land. They keep my lips feeling soft and moisturized , they glide on super easily like butter and last a good 4 hours before they fade. They do leave a stain behind when they fade which is visible till around 6 hours or so, and i actually really like that !

  • Lightweight
  • Pigmented in two swipes
  • Glides on super smoothly
  • Long Lasting
  • Moisturizing
  • The finish is a pretty high shine finish


  • They leave a stain behind, which i actually like but some of you may get annoyed with a bit of the uneven fading.

Verdict: A+

Price: Not sure. Shall update this by tonight . Check back.

Availability: These are new launches by Bourjois and should be out soon.

Recommendation: The Bourjois Shine  Edition Lipsticks are absolutely fab ! Super lightweight, pigmented, moisturizing and long lasting with a pretty high shine finish. Soleil 1,2,3 is definitely now in my most loved lipstick list.

*Apologies for the average pics. I was in a hurry to let all you guys know how nice these are!

Supria August 1, 2013 at 7:10 pm

Mehak, these look similar to the lip butters by Revlon. Are they?


mehak August 1, 2013 at 7:23 pm

Good point Supriya. They are more pigmented and definitely more long lasting but final effect and texture wise similar.


Supria August 2, 2013 at 3:14 pm

Hmm, I checked these out yesterday and decided to give them a miss. Reminded me too much of the lip butters… But I ended up buying the Revlon chubby stick in Honey Douce :) So far, really enjoying it! :D

Hi Mehak – my first comment on your blog, but I am a regular follower! Though these specific shades seem pretty common, I am keen to check out this range for some unusual shades. Thanks for the review!

Never mind the lipsticks , which sound great too, but loved the intro- a sudden plunge with “weird” after all the high fives!! Had me in splits!!


Dash September 8, 2013 at 11:21 pm

I actually love these lipsticks so much! Very creamy and non sticky ;) I’ve made a post about them as well if you would like to have a look

Bourjois has been discontinued in India. All counters closed all over India. Where do you find Bourjois products now? Does anyone know if it will come back to India? Plz reply :(
