Bourjois Shine Edition Lipstick Review!

My love for Bourjois Lipsticks borders on the obsessive. So when I spotted these gorgeous new Shine Edition babies, I kinda lost it a little.

I love the packaging. Bourjois has taken the clear bottom packaging from their Rouge Edition lipsticks and glammed it up in a shiny, new package for Summer '13.

The lipsticks come in 8 different shades and what sets them apart is the texture. Apart from having all sorts of lip-smacking ingredients, they are also made of 1/4 pigment and 1/4 gloss extracts. So you get a mix of pigment and shine.

I'm not a big fan of lipstick every day. Ain't nobody got time for that, you know? So what I love about these is that they are just a step up from all of the lip butters we've been seeing. Thanks to the pigmentation and packaging, they're kind of like lip butter's slightly more sophisticated older sister.

Rose xoxo is described as a 'pink with bluish accents and fine silvery pearlescence'. I think it's the perfect summery pink for me. The blue accents give it a slightly lilac tone, so it's not overly Barbie Pink. This lipstick can be worn during the day for a pretty, polished look, or at night, teamed with a soft smokey eye.

As for wearability, mine lasted for about 3 hours before I had some food. I'm pretty sure it would have lasted longer, but the weird (in a good way) thing is that my lips still felt really soft and smooth for a few hours after the color was gone. This one has gone straight into my purse!

If you'd like to win one of these lipsticks and a whole bunch of Bourjois goodies, stay tuned!
