Kiss-Proof Valentines Day Lips

As all of you are aware, Valentines Day is next Saturday and so today I thought that I would share one of my favourite lip products that would be perfect to wear on the day. Bourjois' Rouge Edition Velvet lipstick has been a firm favourite amongst beauty bloggers, including myself, ever since its release and there's a reason for's amazing! Not only does this liquid lipstick/lip stain hybrid glide seamlessly onto your lips but it stays put all day too!

The formulation is one of my favourite things about this product. Upon immediate application, it feels very glossy and buttery on the lips but then after a few minutes, it will dry down to a matte finish. Usually, matte finishes have the reputation of being very drying on the lips  but this one is still very comfortable to wear. Also, as it is matte, it is incredibly long-wearing and it also slightly stains the lips. So, it will last even whilst you are eating or having a cheeky kiss!

The colour that I have chosen to show you today is 'Personne ne Rouge,' which is a gorgeous true red shade and is therefore perfect for a Valentines Day themed make-up look. However, if you like the sound of this product but do not like this particular shade, there are plenty of others to choose from! A few other popular shades within the range are; Hot Pepper, Pink Ping and Nude-ist!

Overall, the Rouge Edition Velvet range is an excellent choice of product for Valentines Day. It is long-lasting, the colours have amazing pigmentation and they are comfortable to wear too! All in all, what's not to love?! Regardless of whether you are celebrating the day with your loved one or if your simply hanging out with your girl friends, I hope that you all have a wonderful day!
