Bourjois Rouge Fabuleux Lipstick - Bohemian Raspberry. My new favorite long-lasting lipstick!

July 3rd 2019

Finally....I have tried so many different supposedly "Long lasting" lipsticks over the years. From the cheaper end of the market, right through to the more premium end. I have never found a long lasting lipstick that actually lives up to it's promise. From drying out my lips and making them go crumbly, to fading out around the middle and leaving a lip line....I have just had frustration after frustration along my journey, as well as throwing money down the drain. However, I feel with this lipstick, the formula really works for me. It doesn't dry out my lips (although I do suffer from dry, chapped lips so I do add on a dab of Vaseline here and there throughout the day) but the formula pretty much stays put for most of the day. I won't exaggerate and say it last ALL day and ALL night....but I think a lot of it's staying power also comes down to correct prepping of the lips (I use a lip scrub and then dab a bit of lip balm on and wipe it off to smooth the area first) along with applying a good couple of layers...this seems to give it more longevity. It also has a nice creamy formula so it doesn't feel like my lips are completely dried out, unlike a lot of the other so called "Long Lasting" lipsticks. I am now considering purchasing a few more of these in different colours and having them as my staple day and night lipsticks in my makeup bag. This colour comes out a lovely pinky/brown on my lips, without being too dark, which really suits my skin tone. To go a bit darker or more dramatic just line the lips first in a similar shade and layer up! Perfect! I would definitely recommend this product. Out of all of the long lasting lipsticks I have tried, this definitely has the best formula and staying power!
