Read My Lips: Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Ole Flamingo

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Ole Flamingo

Straight up, this Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet lipgloss was 100% enabled by Anna from Vivianna Does Makeup. I’m not even a fan of matte lip products but seriously, that girl rocked the Ole Flamingo so well that I knew I had to get my hands on one too.

I’m glad I actually bit the bullet and got this because holy moly, it’s gorgeous! It’s like one of ’em lip lacquers but it doesn’t feel watery on the lips. Like the name suggests, it really does feel like velvet on the lips. It does leave a matte finish on the lips but it’s not drying at all unlike many matte lipsticks.

Ole Flamingo is one hot fuchsia that I believe anyone can pull off. Staying power is amazing and even if you were to blot the hell out of the lipgloss, you’ll be left with a lovely stain of deep pink on your lips, which is very pretty too.

    Oooh I have this shade as well and it’s STUNNING. Also fully enabled by Anna. There’s definitely some staying power involved in the staining, I had stains on my arm for days after swatching this ha.

      Hahaha me too! That swatch I did for this blog post stayed on my arm for days! I’ve been scrubbing with the Bioderma and even dishwashing liquid. The stain was there for days! 😛

    Ooooh, the velvet sounds so nice! And the color looks fab! I wish Sephora hadn’t given up on Bourjois. I think it’s a great value for the $. Come back, come back!

      Ooh Sephora used to sell Bourjois? What about other stores like Ulta, CVS, Walgreens, etc? I’ve never been to any of those so I’m just throwing the names out there. 😛 I hope you get to try this out because I know you will LOVE them!

    Oh I love the colour. Your lips look great. Pinks and reds make me go so weak in the knees.
