Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick in Rose Neon

16 May 2013





It seems to be imprinted into my DNA that pink shall be worn on my lips and it shall be good. I love the playfulness that pink lippies can portray, and they can instantly give an outfit a little hint of fun and 'I'm not completely serious' feel, which is me all over. In the new Bourjois Rouge Edition lipstick collection, Rose Neon stuck out to me like a sore thumb and I was desperate to get my little hands on it. Only downside is that there wasn't a single lipstick on the Bourjois counter in my local Boots that hadn't been tested or all bashed up - massive pet hate - please give your counters some tlc Boots! I finally picked it up recently and it has been happily on my lips since.

Rose Neon (12) comes from the 'Colour Block' shades and is the more Barbie pink of the collection, but not as bright and in your face as MAC Saint Germain. It also has a hint of MAC Viva Glam Gaga about it too. It's a cool, blue toned, bubblegum pink that isn't as bright as you'd expect it to be, but has a brilliant amount of pigmentation and relatively good lasting power. Apparently, infused with Orchid Blossom extract is what makes these lipsticks so moisturising and hydrating, and I'm happy to report that I get no dryness with this lipstick - something which can be a downside to these shade lipsticks. Don't be put off by the word 'neon' in its name - it's not particularly neon - it's just more of an amplified, brighter shade of light rose and I've found it more wearable than I thought. Application is smooth and silky, and the finish is lustre and shiny - just what you want from a pigmentated lipstick. Highly affordable too at £7.99, I think Bourjois have filled their lipstick shaped hole with a winning collection here. There's a couple of other shades I want to try too - Beige Trench and Fraise Remix look like they would settle down nicely in my collection ready for Summer!
