Bourjois Shine Edition 23 Grenade In



I've featured this  little beaut in many blog posts recently including my October Favourites and a Winter Lip edit. The shiney packaging of these is what first attracted me to them, I love the contrasting writing and the little cube the shows you the colour, all nice little extra touches I think.
In the bullet this looks like it would be a deep dark berry colour but as it is a shine lipstick it swatches and goes on the lips a lot more sheer. Its a lovely light raspberry colour on the lips that definitely still gives you quite a vibrant pop of colour! As the name would suggest these lipsticks give the shine of a lipgloss due to the sheer colour but have the texture and longevity of a lipstick. I do find shine formulas in general offer slightly less wear time and the Bourjois offering is no different but I can get a good 3 hours of wear as it leaves a nice stain to the lips as well even after the shine wears off.
I think this is a gorgeous lip product as they are less drying than your average lipstick formulas and due to the sheer colour are  a good starting point for this a little wary of darker lip colours. It's seen me throughout the winter months and even though its a berryish colour  I still think that the colour pop will be perfect for spring!

Have you tried any of these? Let me know your thoughts on the formula below!

  1. This color look beautiful! I like that it's a shine lipstick because I'm not that into sticky lips with lipglosses. I think 3 hours is good, perfect time for bathroom break ;)
