Bourjois Rouge Edition 18 Review - Blogmas Day 12

Hi everyone, today I am going to be doing something I don't often do which is a review. I think I have done one review before, but one of my aims on this blog in 2015 is to do some more reviews. Sticking with a bit of a Christmas theme for Blogmas, I am going to be reviewing the Boujois Rouge Edition lipsitck in shade Violine Strass (number 18). I purchased this about a month ago and I have been loving it ever since.
I do normally stay in my comfort zone when it comes to lipstick and only rarely wear any daring colours a few times a year, so actually buying this was a little different for me. This lipstick is a dark berry shade and I have seen so many people pulling it off so well, and I wanted to try it out. Plus, it seemed like the perfect Christmassy shade.

My favourite thing about this lipstick is that its buildable. As I said, I'm not very daring when it comes to lipstick and when I learnt that this lipstick was buildable I was really happy. Buildable lipsticks are my favourite as you can really put how much you want on depending on how you feel or the look you're going for.

The only downside to this lipstick is that is has little glitter speckles in it. This isn't really a big problem (and its perfect for a Christmassy look) but on a casual basis, I rather not to have sparkly lips. But an upside to this is that it isn't too obvious.

Overall, this lipstick is great in my opinion. The wear of it is great, the shade is great, the application is great. the packaging is great (as all Bourjois products are). I would really recommend this to anyone looking for a purply berry lip shade for the Winter. 

I hope you enjoyed this review, I really enjoyed writing it about one of my favourite purchases lately. I will be having more reviews soon, but they'll probably be once Blogmas is over.
