I love a red lip. I really do. I was excited when the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks came into my life recently but they got lost in the shuffle a bit and I forgot about them. A few weeks ago I pulled out the shade Hot Pepper for a test run and I was pretty darn impressed.
Hot pepper is a modern orange red shade which really pops. Ideal for this seasons orange lip trend! The pigment is insane - I actually struggled to get them off even with a oil based makeup remover. The finish is kinda matte, I dont find it that matte at all in fact I think it's quite glossy. The formula isnt anything like the Hourglass Opaque Rouges like some people have been claiming. If anything it reminds me a bit of the YSL Glossy Stains with a more opaque finish. I did like the formula but the smell and the taste is so unbelievably off-putting - I was a little worried when I initially applied them. Im too sensitive to smell and taste in products and it can literally put me off something instantly…
TLDR: They are good but not that matte, buy them (if you don’t mind the smell)
