4 COLOUR COMBINATIONS
SMOOTH TEXTURE, RADIANT COLOUR
Bourjois Colorissimo Lip Palettes comes in a round black casing with transparent lid, embedded with 3 coordinating shades accompanied with a tiny two sided sponge applicator. The applicator is of no use; it doesn’t pick up shades properly nor does apply evenly! The whole packaging though looks nice but is almost weightless & doesn’t give you that rich feel. These lip palettes are available in four shades combinations ranging from reds, pinks, orange& nudes.
I picked up Rouges Collection which is an assortment of some stunning reds for your vanity!
1. Is a true classic red. But strangely it comes out as deep berry pink on my lips.
2. Is a vivid Orange-ish Red. It’s more of a dare to wear shade for me. Would prefer to wear it toned down.
3.Is again a deep red but with slight earthy tones. This also appears pink on my lips.
The texture of these shades is smooth & creamy (not buttery though) with a luscious glossy finish which applies effortlessly without any issues. All the three shades hold solid pigmentation which packs on the lips bang on with full coverage. I like to apply these with a lip brush, this way creating a smooth, even & polished finish. Having said that, they do require some efforts to behave well on lips especially if you have dry & flaky lips like mine. The finish appears all tacky & patchy if lips are not properly exfoliated highlighting those flakes. If you have prominently chapped lips, the formula does accommodate itself into those lines which do not give a pretty sight. These are pretty moisturizing on lips but again ungroomed lips can be unforgiving. To be safer side I make sure to pre moisturize my lips well. The staying power is very impressive. They stay easily for 5 -6 hours on me with very minimal fading despite of those meals before getting toned down into strong stains. The shades naturally acquire strong staining quality which makes them adhere to lips well.
In a nutshell- these are not very dry lips friendly but not bad either. I basically prefer high moisturizing formulas over long wear time looking at my very dry lips.
- Easy to locate packaging.

Looking at the formula they seem to be somewhat less comfortable with dry lips but on well-groomed lips flare pretty well. With brilliant colour assortments accompanied with a nice creamy, glossy, highly pigmented & long wearing formula these palettes are absolutely must have! Rouges Collection offers some ravishing reds to your vanity with some lovely tones.
