Bourjois Effet 3D Gloss in shade 49 Rose Pacific : Review, Swatches & Pics (From Summer Collection)


The new Effet 3D lipgloss is perfect for those beautiful, hot summer days with SPF 15 solar filters and balm action for 8 hours of hydration. 

Not only does it protect lips from UV rays but stops them from drying out.

A special waterproof formula ensures it stays on when you least expect it – even when swimming & bathing.

Available in 2 glistening shades with speckles of gold, you can be sure it will beautify your tan!

Its addictive fragrance with hints of Tahitian monoi and coconut makes it a “summer must-have!”


There are only two shades introduced in their summer collection:

49: Rose Pacific

50 Brun Exotic





This is one gloss to which every female will get enticed to. For me it performs in every department right from packaging, formula,longevity,hydration shade…..living up to its every single claim!

It comes in an attractive transparent sleek tube with silver coloured applicator cap. The cap contains a glass wand which holds the applicator bristles. The bristles are smooth & soft, picks up enough product to cover the entire lips in a single go. The cap also contains a small rim of the respective shade the shade number while the name is mentioned on the tube. Nevertheless the packaging is logical & helps in easy location of shades.

The formula is an absolute treat for every gloss lover. Smooth, creamy, non sticky & long wearing! It contains minute gold shimmer flecks (in both shades of summer collection) which are visible loaded in the product looking at the tube but gets evenly distributed once applying the gloss & doesn’t go OTT. The flecks do not affect the smooth texture of the gloss & are not at all felt on lips post application. They provide a rich glossy mirror like shine to lips making them look juicy & healthy. However the plumper 3D effect on lips appears barely for an hour or so after which they appear normal yet with a healthy shine & nourished. It has got a mild sweet fragrance which nowhere sounds like a coconut as claimed but nothing bad.

I was surprised at the wear time this gloss gives me. The shade being sheer, I was expecting it to be barely an hour or two but it very well wears for good 4-6 hours inclusive of minor meals on my lips which is really good when it comes in terms of sheer glosses. The main meals in between does reduce the wear time but still it stays for good few hours irrespective of that. The formula claims to be water proof which I felt somewhat true as after drinking fluids regularly it don’t get wiped off majorly unlike most of the glosses & holds itself well on lips without getting transferred.

The gloss contains SPF15 which helps to protect lips from harmful sunrays. It claims to keep lips hydrated for 8 hours which is very true. I have super dry lips & conveniently wear this gloss without any lipbalm underneath. It doesn’t get into fine lines nor accentuates the dryness of lips & keeps them soft & supple. I once applied this on my flaky lips in hurry & at no point of time my lips appeared dry or flaky with this gloss on. It has passed each and every possible test on my lips & scores full in every way. The only thing I can think as negative (if you really want) is the claim of 8 hours staying power. But I am still very much satisfied with the wear time this gives me.

Shade:46 Rose Pacific

It’s a bright Peachy Pink shade where Peach dominates all the way. The pink is barely visible or rather I would call this as a pure Peachy Gloss loaded with gold flecks. It gives a nice hint of peachiness on lips with brilliant shine because of the gold flecks. The shade is pure summer where it enjoys sun to the fullest with enough protection on & not for someone who loves to have some colour on their lips. This is all about a peachy tinge with reflecting shine.

Absolutely no coverage whatsoever, so pigmented lips won’t like this. I have been using this most of the days & just love the clean look this adds to face, so fresh & light without much colour. If you love sheer glosses or looking for some summery shades, I recommend to check this collection.

This is how it looks on me:




  • Attractive, Sleek & user friendly packaging with no fuss applicator brush.
  • Smooth, creamy, long wearing  & non sticky formula.
  • Very hydrating & keeps lips soft & supple for good long hours.
  • Water Proof formula which stays intact despite of regular contact with liquids without getting wiped off.
  • SPF15 which gives good protection to lips.
  • Gold flecks in the formula does not affect the texture & are barely felt post application.
  • Gold flecks provide a brilliant mirror like shine to lips making them look fuller & healthier.
  • Paraben free.
  • Rose Pacific is an pure summery shade with a hint of peach & rich glossy shine which gives a fresh look.


This gloss performs excellently & lives up to it every claim. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Nothing bad I can think of!




Bourjois Effet 3D glosses in summer collection have smooth , creamy & non sticky texture. They are long wearing, very hydrating, water proof & provides brilliant mirror like shine. These can’t go wrong in any aspect as per me. Highly Recommended.
