#VelvetTheLipstick by Bourjois

Lipstick is back with a bang.
Say hello to the new collection of Rouge Velvet Lipsticks from Bourjois that have made me rediscover my love for lippy. I was kindly gifted the collection in the latest Vox Box from Influenster. Just when liquid lipsticks seemed to have replaced the regular lipstick, these 12 matte shades from the drugstore are sure to get the attention the deserve. The shades run from nudes, to brights, to deep reds and browns so you will definitely find one to suit your skin tone.

Of course, hand me 12 amazingly coloured lipsticks and I'll still grab the nude. They claim to last up to 24 hours - not that I'll ever find out because I love my sleep too much. But I can vouch for the lovely creamy texture, making them apply like a dream without feeling drying at all. The shade range is perfect for transitioning into autumn, sure to add a pop of colour and brighten the face as we start to layer up.

My three favourites from the collection are Hey Nude, Abrico'dabra and Brunette which you can see swatched below in order of lightest to darkest. You can see just how creamy and smooth they are. If you are hesitant about matte shades - don't be scared, these could be the perfect stepping stone for you. If you're worried, you can always apply a little balm or gloss over the top.

Here is some information on how Bourjous describe the shades on site (from left to right)
