Review : Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick in Hot Pepper (03) ♥♥

Hey dolls; so yes I succumbed to the hype; I jumped onto the bandwagon and wanted to see what all this fuss was about.
I bought the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick and all I have to say is 'BOURJOIS girl you did that!!!'.
I love this product because it's a very nice creamy consistency; it goes on well and you can build it up to the coverage you want without it caking up on your lips.
I like the fact that it is opaque so it comes out well and pigmented on the lips espescially if your lips are very pigmented like mine.

I like Bourjois because apparently it's made in the same factory as Chanel so the quality is top notch so I expected nothing but the best; and it sure did deliver.
This lipstick dries to a Matte finish but it doesn't dry your lips out.
I got mine in the Hot Pepper (03), there was a deeper red but I opted for this blue toned red because it seemed to go with every skin colour. They have 6 different shades so you can have a look and see which ones suit you the most.

This lipstick is best applied on dry lips so if you have any gloss or balm on your lips; please remove this before continuing (because I made that mistake and it bled unto my lips ~ no bueno).
The applicator of this lipstick is great because it allows you to apply the lipstick very easily and precisely.

For my face it is literally the same as my everyday makeup routine (here), the only thing I changed was the foundation; I got a sample of the Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24 hr bla bla (such a long name) and popped it on to see how I feel about it. What do you think? Would you like a review?
The lashes are Ardell Demi Wispies ♥ (they are on 3for2 at the moment!!)

Overall this lipstick gets a 4.5/5 from me.
It is long lasting; very pigmented and applies very well.
It is very affordable; it was £8.99 and it is very comparable to the YSL lip stains and the Dior fluidsticks (the only difference being these stains are glossy). I have tried the Dior fluidsticks and it doesn't have the staying power as the Bourjois one; so if you are in 2 minds about these, go for the Bourjois one.
Get this lipstick here or here (p.s. LookFantastic and Boots both have offers so whichever is best for you doll; I always love to get more for my money)!
Hope you enjoyed this review?
Have you tried this lipstick before and do you like it? Which other colours will you reccomended cos I wanna try more?
And what other lip products do you think I need to try?
Let me know in the comments,
Have a fabulous day,
