Review and Swatches: Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Pink Pong Lipstick

A lot has been written about Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet lipsticks, but I decided to add my review in a bunch of all others as well, because I've never been so impressed by a matte lipstick before. At the moment this is my favourite lipstick and I have my eye on two other shades from this collection as well. For the beginning I decided to try one shade and I choose Pink Pong.


The packaging of this lipstick is similar to the one that lipglosses have. You open a lid and it has a spongy applicator. The packaging itself is in the color of lipstick, it's square and although it's plastic it seems sturdy. The applicator it's just perfect and easy to work with.


Pigmentation is not on the strongest site. This is actually pretty sheer lipstick. On lips it needs at least two coats to be opaque. On the swatch below you can see how it looks applied in one coat (right) and in two coats (left). I took this photo right after application, that why the lipstick looks glossy. 
Ping Pong is nice pinkish shade and because it's bright one must be a bit more careful with application. And because it's sheerer it takes a bit more time to built it evenly, but final result is totally worth the time because it looks amazing.


Right after applications it looks glossy on lips, but after around 10 to 15 minutes it drys matte. What actually really surprised me is that despite matte finish it doesn't feel like it drys my lips when I wear it. Well, matte lisptick are not moisturizing at all, but this one doesn't dry lips at all. I actually get drying feeling after around 2-3 hours, when the color starts fading away and it starts leaving a stain. It stains  evenly and on me it lasts around 4 hours. A lot of bloggers said that it survives eating but I can't confirm that. This lipstick unfortunatelly didn't survive eating at work. It left a stain around my lips, but in inner part it totally dissapeared. I usually reapplied it after lunch to make it look nice again. When it drys matte it will transfer on a glass if you'll drink, but minimal. On the lips it'll actually still look untouched.


This is how it looks on me freshly applied. The shiny version of this lipstick isn't bad, but I prefer matte one. :)


And this is how it looks on me when it drys matte. My lips weren't in the best condition when I bought it, but despite that it looked great when it dried matte. It will emphasize dry parts a bit, but from far that won't be noticeable at all. It has creamy formula and it feels very light on lips, almost like I wouldn't wear anthing.


Matte lisptick that doesn't feel drying on lips? Yes, please. You get 6,7 ml for around 14 € and yes, it's a bit pricey, but I think it's totally worth the money. I bought mine in DM some time ago with 30 % discount coupon, but it's also available in Müller (and probably in Tuš drugstore if they have Bourjouis stand).

Have you tried Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet lipsticks? What do you think of them? Thank you for reading!

  1. Looks beautiful on you. It surprises me to read it didn't last long on you, I have the same shade and it survive few meals, drinks, almost all day perfectly, also I haven't had problems with pigmentation, but i hate how it smells terribly
    Maybe you should try to apply it in thin coat and let it dry for minute or so and repeat process. I noticed that liquid matte lipsticks work better if applied that way.

    1. Thank you. :) I do apply it in two coats (a thinner first coats, which is a base for a second one), because it's impossible to apply it in just in one. I wait few seconds between coats, but in the morning unfortunatelly I don't have enough time to wait few minutes between coats.

    1. Jaz imam na WL še 4 in 7 odtenek (oba bolj nude kot ta) in nekako imam občutek, da bosta pristala v moji košarici. :P

  8. Čudovita barva, zelo ti paše :) mat finiši so meni osebno najboljši, pomoje da bo eden kar romal v košarico, ko se končno primajem do kakšne drogerije :P

  9. The colour is beautiful and it looks very pretty on you! I like hydrating lipsticks so I'll be skipping this line but every single review I've read has been a positive one. Congratulations Bourjois for making such a good product! p.s. danas smo svi na engleskom za promjenu :)

  11. Ooo ful mi je všeč na tebi! Kako se ti zdi kaj v primerjavi s Catrice Mission pinkpossible? Po obstojnosti?

    OdgovoriIzbriši
    Odgovori
    1. Po obstojnosti je Catrice boljša, ker pusti boljši stain, vsaj na mojih ustnicah, ampak tisti stain grozno izgleda po enem času, tako da če že, bi jaz raje izbrala Bourjois. :)

  12. wau, krasno ti paše! :)
    jaz sem tudi zadnjič vzela enega, ker sem čisto po naključu ugotovila, da je popust.. in sicer sem vzela odtenek 05 - Ole flamingo!, je kar podoben tvojemu, samo manj žive, bolj roza barve. :) sem pa ga danes prvič sprobala in WOW. :O jaz sem čiiistoo navdušena,tale mat efekt mi je noronoro všeč, pa obstojnost mi je tudi všeč - zdržal mi je okoli 4-5 ur, pa sem še vmes jedla in pila. :)
    jaz bom tudi definitivno še šla po enega, verjetno jutri, ker so imeli tale mesec vsak vikend (od petka do nedelje) -20% popust na Bourjois velvete (mislim, da samo na to, za ostale B. izdelke nisem prepričana). Se pa tako, kot ti odločam med 04 in 07,hmmm.. :)

    1. Ful je dober mat efekt. Sem bila danes v Műllerju, škoda, da je akcija šele od jutri, ker ta vikend verjetno več ne grem. :/
