Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Laque Lipsticks

The new Rouge Edition Aqua Laque lipsticks by Bourjois have been centre-stage ever since they launched last month, offering a high-shine lip stick/gloss hybrid with good colour payoff. I haven't actually worn a lip gloss in ages; for years, I've been a matte lipstick girl but I actually really like these new Aqua Laque Lipsticks.

The Aqua Laque Lipsticks are available in a variety of shades from bright reds to opaque nudes and provide a realistic 'wet' look (the word 'Aqua' definitely belongs in the product name). I understand that glossy lips aren't for everyone but I think they're great for glamorous evening and party looks. Also, I think these are great for those swimming pool selfies in the summer!







I've tried three shades: Red My Lips, Babe Idole, and Brun'croyable. They all provide a lovely pop of colour and are a real pleasure to apply as they're very moisturising to the lips so there's no need for a lip primer. They are also opaque enough to define the lips and aren't sticky at all. In fact, they're very  lightweight and are comfortable to wear.

I've tried a few lip stick/gloss hybrids before that claim to add a burst of colour but annoyingly end up looking 'caked' on the lips. The Aqua Laque lipsticks don't and evenly apply colour efficiently across the lips without streaking. 

Unfortunately, the product doesn't last long on the lips (particularly when eating or drinking) and so does require re-application every now and then. But- a decent amount of colour is still there which makes re-application a lot easier.

Red My Lips
A beautiful bold red shade that is currently my favourite. I love the colour red and personally, out of all three shades- I think the colour payoff for Red My Lips was the best. 

Babe Idole
A girly bright bubblegum pink shade that's not as frightening as it first seems. It doesn't come too bright on the lips and is very wearable.  

Brun'croyable
A mature deep purple/brown shade that's comes up as more of a bold nude when actually worn on the lips due to the high-gloss formula. 






The Aqua Laque Lipsticks by Bourjois are priced at £8.99 and can be purchased from Boots and Superdrug.
