It’s the return of the matte. Renowned as the diva of the lipstick world, mattes can be tricky to wear, often drying out lips. Bourjois, however, has taken the simple matte lipstick and given it a moisturising makeover. Behold the Bourjois Rouge Edition Souffle de Velvet!
Available in six intense red and pink shades, the Souffle de Velvet are enriched with hydration-guarding agents (nope, me neither!) for a velvety soft finish.
I found these so easy to use and really comfortable to wear. Then again I love a matte so I tend to be biased. In terms of longevity, Bourjois wildly claims these will last 10 hours (I know! Cray cray). I typically get a couple of hours out of every lipstick before having to retouch – and I’m personally fine with that. Overall, if you love mattes, you’ll love these.
In the gallery above, I’m wearing the red Plum Plum Pidou 07 and the coral Ravie En Rose 04. Available nationwide, priced €12.50 each.
