Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick Review: Framboise (02)

When it comes to men, I hate the clingy kind. Those who hang on to every word you say, have no opinion of their own and call you 6 times a day – those kind are just really annoying and I lose respect for them in an instant. When it comes to lipsticks though, the clingier the better- and this Bourjois ROuge Edition Velvet Lipstick is so damn clingy that even if I rub it off after 24 hours it refuses to budge!!! (It does get annoying at that point but hey…its the longest wearing lipstick I have worn till date)

bourjois-rouge-edition-velvet-lipstick Basically, these are like the Nyx Soft Matte Lip creams only better. The color is saturated and even and when dry it dries to a nice soft matte. While these are not uncomfortable to wear, they aren’t particularly moisturizing either but provide solid coverage, saturated color and glide like an absolute dream. I just love the finish they give- its sheeny at first but settles into a matte. They also refuse to leave your lips like I mentioned above and even if you scrub them off they leave a soft, even toned stain on your lips.

Framboise is a raspberry red which immediately brightens my face up. Even though Im not a ‘bright lipstick everyday’ kind of girl, this one is so pretty I really could wear it everyday. Infact, i wore this as a soft stain in my Highlighter article where all of you asked me what I was wearing (That was after majorly scrubbing it off though). Its a color that will look fab on light and medium skintones like mine so go ahead and grab it with both hands lips.

bourjois-rouge-edition-velvet-lipstick4I know Im looking unwell in this photo. Iv had this wierd sort of weight loss happening- Iv gone from being 56 kgs to being a smidgen under 5o !(Haha, I cant believe im divulging weight details). I dont know why though and its kind of worrying- mom thinks its because of the *stress* of starting something new. I think its because I was kind of unwell the whole of last month. The boy just thinks I still eat like a hog and doesnt understand why its happening

Verdict: A

Price: not sure yet

Recommendation: These get a super thumbs up from me. Love the feel, the saturaated color, the matte finish and the fact that they dont require a touch up the entire day. If you liked the Nyx Soft Matte Lip Creams you will absolutely LOVE this! While i cant classify these as drying, they are not particularly moisturizing either

Ooh so pretty! I recently bought Revlon Soft Rose and I absolutely love the way it brightens up my face even on really bad days! Will check out this one soon.

And ditto on weight loss.. no idea why!

Manasi April 15, 2014 at 11:29 am

Xuvious April 15, 2014 at 11:36 am

Samyukta/Suma April 15, 2014 at 12:05 pm

Have been reading so much about these… Even Masaba (Gupta) instagrammed them! :D
The shade looks gorgeous on you Mehak… Are they drying btw?
I hope your weight loss doesn’t cause anything to worry… And I secretly wish I could go from 56Kgs to 50Kgs too ;)


Jyoti April 15, 2014 at 12:11 pm

Loved the shade and the texture. I love NYX soft matte lip creams, but yes they are a little drying. This one looks super creamy. Shall definitely try these. :)
BTW I did notice you looking a lot thinner, but you were always so thin, so thought it could be the pictures and the angle may be. New ventures/ beginnings does that to people. All the best and don’t stress much. You will be fine. :)


krithi April 15, 2014 at 12:38 pm

take care of your self
Im sure these woild be priced at 1k
I hate it :)


Shweta Munjal April 15, 2014 at 12:40 pm

Supppeeeer preeety!! … any idea where can I get them in Delhi/Gurgaon?

Regarding your weight loss, you might want to consider getting general tests done esp. thyroid … Take care!


mily April 15, 2014 at 12:51 pm

ohhh..this lipstick is so prettyy!!! Are ther any soft pinks or nudes in this range?? oh..why do people who dont want to lose weight lose it as easily as eating popcorns and people like me who want to…huh..another story all together!!!


Anamika April 15, 2014 at 1:13 pm

Such a hot shade


Rashi April 15, 2014 at 1:21 pm

Very pretty! I’m SO getting a couple of these when they are released!
Btw, such sudden weightloss sounds alarming- I think you should get a thorough checkup done- esp. thyroid. Take care.


Pankhuri April 15, 2014 at 1:26 pm

This is just amazing. M definitely buying this as i absolutely loved NYX soft matte lip creams *yoohoo* can’t wait for the launch now :P


laks April 15, 2014 at 1:35 pm

Pretty shade! I wish I could loose weight like you ( for any reason :D )


Pia April 15, 2014 at 2:21 pm

Nice colour !!

For weight loss just check your hemoglobin once as I also lost 1o kg when my hemoglobin was low in a month.


Supria April 15, 2014 at 2:49 pm

Love this colour. Can’t believe this stains so nicely. I personally love lip products that leave an even stain :)


Shailja@BeABrideEveryday April 15, 2014 at 2:52 pm

That’s a lovely shade Mehak !


Shikha April 15, 2014 at 3:43 pm

lovely shade, its so creamy and matte.. more than 24 hours staying.. Too good… I end up eating my lipsticks of rubbing it off within few minutes. Take care and have banana/mango shake. You are now under weight girl eat well.


Blushes and Beyond April 15, 2014 at 3:58 pm

Oh it looks really nice. Definitely buying them once they are launched.


Ramya ursgorgeously April 15, 2014 at 4:01 pm

Clothes and Creativity April 15, 2014 at 4:47 pm

Nice pop of colour! Are they available here?


anonymous April 15, 2014 at 5:24 pm

Mehak ! U need to go to the hospital dear. Dis weight loss is really unhealthy. Not to scare u or anything but i advice you gettin ur thyroid hormone level checked. In hyperthyroidism there is weight loss and in hypo there is sudden wt gain.
M tellin u all dis coz m concerned abt ur well being.
Plz dont ignore dis.
I really hope n pray for ua well being :)


Ramya April 15, 2014 at 5:42 pm

That’s a super bright shade.nice review


Harine April 15, 2014 at 5:52 pm

Charlene April 15, 2014 at 7:31 pm
