Bourjois Rouge Edition in 19

Bourjois Rouge Edition in 19 review swatch photo

Bourjois Rouge Edition in 19 is a milky peachy pink lipstick. My usual sort of peachy pink with a bit of nude thrown in for good measure. The formula of Rouge Editions is creamy, opaque and full coverage, they have no noticeable scent. I found that this particular shade really clung to any of the drier parts of my lips and made them look quite caked on. The milkiness of the shade made it even more noticeable. It really enhanced any imperfections on the lips. I did exfoliate and try again but I wanted to show how it looked before doing this. It just doesn't sit very nicely!

While I do really like the shade of the lipstick and it ticks all the boxes for the type of lipstick I would normally reach for. The shade just generally didn't work for me, I think its mainly down to the milkier colour and very creamy finish. It's very similar to the Rouge Edition in shade 3 Peche Cosy, but a little milkier and more nude. I find the other shade much more flattering and easier to wear than shade 19. At £7.99 they aren't the cheapest of lipsticks but I do really like the Rouge Editions, I just don't think this is the best shade of the bunch unfortunately!

  1. I love this colour! I've been obsessed with peach colours lately and this one seems perfect. I wonder if it'd be too light for my skin tone though.. Great post!

  2. You can see the colour on your lips doesn't reflect the colour of the lipstick, it's annoying when that happens! I've been searching for the perfect coral colour for ages, but half the time they just come out really pale on my lips, almost milky, as you say. I've weirdly found that £1 MUA lipsticks come out much more opaquely and truly than more expensive high street makeups. Lovely post as always!

  3. I like this colour on the lipstick and it is one I would go for. I do not like the fact that it is milky and very drying on the lips. Definitely one I will steer clear of. Great post

  5. I see what you mean, it sort of shows the lines on the lips a little more.
    What a shame :(

  6. It looks like such a pretty colour until it's applied. I think it'd be too pale and milky even for me :(

  10. I haaate lipsticks that do that, even if I have scrubbed them to within an inch of their life and lipstick still manages to find a bit of skin to cling to! Steering clear of this one - does look a lovely colour though!

  13. I like this shade but since you said it's not the best of the bunch, I would definitely have to try this out before I bought just to make sure I liked it. The colour looks gorgeous in the bullet though!

  17. I have this shade and I love the colour on but the texture is horrible. Can't believe I paid £8 for it, it was really shocking.

  19. i actually really like this colour on you!
    i struggle with paler shades though too because i have quite pigmented lips so they just end up looking like concealer fish lips- so awful.
    i still haven't tried any lipsticks from the range but they do sound and look lovely, i really need to get a move on actually.
    hope you're doing ok?

  25. Gorgeous colour but it's a shame it clings to certain areas on your lips. I often find that my lips can look slightly 'cakey' and dry when I use a lighter shade of lipstick, it's soo annoying!
