Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet 06 Pink Pong lipstick stain matte

This lip-gloss has an unusual velvety Matte finish to it yet still feels silky on the lips. 
Very strange texture - not quite a gloss, definitely not a lipstick but not as thin as a stain.
Once on this really stays put. Packs a punch and lasts through eating, drinking. You kind of forget it's there really. Its such a light formula. It's only when you occidentally touch your mouth and end up with pink all over your fingers you realize - yes it's still there!

I chose the colour PINK PONG which is a bright hot fuchsia pink.
I wanted something that was out of my nude / safe comfort zone and boy did i pick the right one.

It's a really nice bright shade to wear. Have not yet had the confidence to actually wear it outside, where there are actual people who will see me!!. One step at a time! 

I wore this around the house and it lasted all through breakfast, lunch and more. So they're staying power is amazing. Nice to wear not gloopy, sticky.

With it being a matte formula, i was worried it would highlight any dry flaky bits on my lips, some matte lipsticks have a tendency to do that, but not at all. Very hydrating and smooth on the lips.

There are more subtler shades in this range if your not ready to step into the bold category.
I will definitely be picking some more shades up.
Have you tried the Bourjois velvets? What shade did you pick up?

Take time for you. Take care and look after yourself.
