Bourjois Rouge Velvet: The Lipstick

If you read my Bourjois Christmas Party Make-Up post, then you'll already know I really like these Bourjois Rouge Velvet The Lipstick. So much so that I thought they deserved a post all of their own...

I was kindly sent three shades of these lippies: Brunette; Berry Formidable and Magni-Fig. All three are gorgeous, wintery colours. The formula of the Rouge Velvet Lipsticks is slightly different to the original Rouge Velvet Liquid Lipsticks in that they aren't totally matte. They are far from glossy, however, and I'm sure if you blotted them down they'd have a more matte appearance. I quite like the slight sheen they have, and they feel fairly creamy and moisturising on the lips, too. Great for my (forever) dry lips. 
The first shade, and probably my favourite, is Brunette. A chocolate brown shade with a neutral undertone. I plan on wearing this colour with my hair up in a messy bun and a casual outfit. 

Magni-Fig is, as the name suggests, a deep fig-hue. It has more of a purple hint to it then than berry and would look fab with a smoky eye for a winter night out. 
Berry-Formidable is much redder compared to the other two shades I have and looks perfect with winged eyeliner and lots of mascara. A great alternative to a traditional red lippie. 

I need want to try some of the more neutral tones for more everyday make-up looks. Have you tried any of these lipsticks? Any shade recommendations? 

*I was gifted these products to review, but all opinions are my own.
