bourjois shine edition lipstick – grenade in

When I went to my friends wedding last week, I obviously needed to get myself a new lipstick. I wanted something I hadn’t tried before, that didn’t blow the budget for me either. In the end I chose a Bourjois Shine Edition Lipstick, I think it was definitely the packaging the sold it, I do love a pretty product case. Told you, I must really be a magpie. After much swatching, I settled with the shade ‘grenade in’ a lovely berry colour.

Grenade in is a cute little raspberry shade, which leans quite pink on me.

The formula is nice and shiny but still really comfortable to wear. Its shiny but not in a glossy kind of way. It feels like more of a balm which makes it nice and wearable without being too over the top. The colour payoff of this is really good considering it is quite gloss like, it still manages to have the opacity of a full on lipstick which is nice.

This lasted for about 4 hours on me before the glossiness faded, although I was left with a lovely stain on my lips which lasted a good while afterwards. Bourjois say that this contains ‘mango butter to moisturise for up to 10 hours’, but for me it really didn’t last this long. I suffer from dry lips anyway but I found the moisturising qualities wore away with the shine slightly, although I used a balm over the stain that was left which added a bit more of a muted touch.

I really do like this lipstick, especially the colour and I do like the shiny qualities too. I think I want to try the shade 1,2,3 next!

    The shade looks so pretty on you. I'm afraid it'd look a little too bold on me for my liking but it's stunning nevertheless. Raspberrykiss xo

      There are quite a few shades to choose from, so the less bold choices might be worth a swatch!
