Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick in Hot Pepper*

I love a red lip. I really do. I was excited when the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks came into my life recently but they got lost in the shuffle a bit and I forgot about them. A few weeks ago I pulled out the shade Hot Pepper for a test run and I was pretty darn impressed. 

Hot pepper is a modern orange red shade which really pops. Ideal for this seasons orange lip trend! The pigment is insane - I actually struggled to get them off even with a oil based makeup remover. The finish is kinda matte, I dont find it that matte at all in fact I think it's quite glossy.  The formula isnt anything like the  Hourglass Opaque Rouges like some people have been claiming. If anything it reminds me a bit of the YSL Glossy Stains with a more opaque finish. I did like the formula but the smell and the taste is so unbelievably off-putting - I was a little worried when I initially applied them. Im too sensitive to smell and taste in products and it can literally put me off something instantly… 


TLDR: They are good but not that matte, buy them (if you don’t mind the smell)

  6. I have this in the pink colour and LOVE them! Do you think this would make your teeth look yellow if theyre not super white? I wish they would have a blue based red and some nude colours- I feel they all have a wierd orange undertone! I wore mine for 13 hours with no problem. I love how you can reapply them too- personally I couldnt smell anything :)x

  7. Aww I need these, the finish looks lovely I'm actually glad about the glossy finish as the matte formulas require to much maintenance for me :) x

  23. Beautiful shade! Now I just need to be brave enough to wear it. I think I might be able to brave the smell and invest in one of these.

  24. These look and sound amazing but upon going into Boots and giving the shades a swatch they don't seem like my type of product, but that may be due to the fact they're a little matte (to me anyway) but that being said the swatches wouldn't wash off my hand for ages!

    They just need a larger range of colours... In my opinion anyway. ^_^

  26. Do You Need a Love Spell to Get Your Ex lover Back?

    My Name is Vicky Lorimer, I am From Manchester in United Kingdom.i am hear to give testimony of how i got back my husband, we got married for more than 9 years and have gotten two kids. thing were going well with us and we are always happy. until one day my husband started to behave in a way i could not understand, i was very confused by the way he treat me and the kids. later that month he did not come home again and he called me that he want a divorce, i asked him what have i done wrong to deserve this from him, all he was saying is that he want a divorce that he hate me and do not want to see me again in his life, i was mad and also frustrated do not know what to do,i was sick for more than 2 weeks because of the divorce. i love him so much he was everything to me without him my life is incomplete. i told my sister and she told me to contact a spell caster, i never believe in all this spell casting of a thing. i just want to try if something will come out of it. i contacted Dr Brave for the return of my husband to me, they told me that my husband have been taken by another woman, that she cast a spell on him that is why he hate me and also want us to divorce. then they told me that they have to cast a spell on him that will make him return to me and the kids, they casted the spell and after a week my husband called me and he told me that i should forgive him, he started to apologize on phone and said that he still love me that he did not know what happen to him that he left me. it was the spell that Dr Brave casted on him that make him to come back to me today,me and my family are now happy again today. thank you Dr Brave for what you have done for me i would have been nothing today if not for your great spell. i want you my friends who are passing through all this kind of love problem of getting back their husband, wife , or ex boyfriend and girlfriend to contact bravespellcaster@gmail.com. and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay.
