Ive already joined the waiting list in Boots.com just in case that itll come earlier in UK over Singapore. But i was wrong! Yesterday i popped by Watson’s in Ngee Ann City and completely made up my mind to get Collection’s Lasting Perfection Concealer. Sadly, they don’t have my shade which is 03 Medium, so gutted i was, i end up just walking over to the Bourjois counter to try the CC Cream. Just before my hand grabs the tester, i saw the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet just winking beside me lol My heart skipped a beat and i was filled with joy and anticipation and immediately started swatching them! The Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet is their collection of matte lip creams that has a 24 hour hold (big claim!) paired with gorgeous colors! after gliding it on the back of my hand, i was impressed! oh the formula is so cream and the colors are gorgeous! i also love the pretty packaging too!
The collection has the colors:
#1 Personne en Rouge (No Red) – classic red
#2 Frambourjoise – reddish pink shade
#3 Hot Pepper – red with orange undertones
#4 Peach Club – coral pink shade
#5 Ole’ Flamingo – hot pink!
#6 Pink Pong – Pink with purple undertones
#7 Nude-ist – nude mixture of pinks, kinda like a flesh color
#8 Grand Cru – pretty berry purplish pink shade
Unfortunately, Watsons only carry: #2,4,5,6,7 shades. i was getting crazy and wanting to get every single shade, but i decided to resist cause i still have lip creams from Sleek & Manhattan that i just ordered and would be taken to me by my boyfriend when he comes back to me from England next week. I’m so going gaga over these lip creams nowadays! cause i think its the best one cosmetics brands has come up at the moment! i so love matte finish lip products considering it makes me look put together while doing my job. and oh, i also did pick up Collection’s Cream Puff Lip Cream in Cotton Candy which i would review on another post!
The Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet costs $25 SGD and i was lucky enough to get it with a 20% off. Good deal! i completely resisted on getting all the other colors cause i would rather buy them in Boots for 3 for 2! 🙂 I picked up #5 Ole Flamingo and i was so happy! its such a pretty hot pink color!it reminds me of my NYX lip pencil in hot pink i used to use a lot before, but thank God they come up with this one!
Have you tried the new Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet? Which one is your fave color?
