Bourjois Rouge Velvet 'Berry Formidable' Lipstick Review

For ages now I've been looking for the perfect red lipstick for not only Christmas, but Winter in general. I have to say that for me that's a very adventurous step forwards in terms of wearing lipsticks. 

It's only in the last year that I've began to have confidence with wearing Lipsticks more, and that confidence only stretched to wearing very subtle nude lipsticks. However, whilst reading through a Christmas magazine, there was a beauty section which had an article on which red lipstick would suit certain skin tones. Not being able to find a red lipstick to suit my own personal skin tone was one of the main reasons why I guess I've been put off of trying to wear red lipsticks, some can wash you out and some can look too much.

The lipstick which I found that I liked is the Bourjois Rouge Velvet Lipstick in the shade 'Berry Formidable'. As the name suggests - this is a berry toned red, which is my favourite type of red! I really like that the shade isn't too 'out there' for me, it looks quite fitting for this time of year which makes it so much easier to wear.

As for the formulation of the lipstick, it's actually quite moisturising on the lips and I didn't feel uncomfortable wearing it. It lasts really well after applying it too, even after eating and drinking which is amazing!

The only struggle I had was with actually applying the lipstick, I have since realised that the way to apply it is by using the tip as a lip liner and then fill in the rest of your lips with the lipstick. I have had a few smudges around my lips which has been a nightmare to get rid of, but that's to be expected with a shade like this!

Overall, I've been really happy with this lipstick! It's the perfect shade for the festive period and Winter and I hope that I can get a lot of use out of it!
