I did not like the first batch of Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet lip liquids that I got earlier, but I’m liking a couple that I got more recently, Peach Club and Nude-ist. Peach Club is more of an orange-y red on me, and not a very flattering one at that – each time I’m reminded how yellow my teeth are. I like it best blotted and with a lip gloss on top to give it dimension. Nude-ist is not the beige-y color traditionally associated with a nude lip color; on me it is a medium-toned rose color. It’s a great neutral and office-appropriate color, also nice blotted down or worn sheer. I would be keeping this one.
The formula on these are relatively similar to the previous ones, albeit slightly easier to use. It’s still not a big hit with me as I much prefer the unfussy NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams compared to these to give that soft-focus matte effect.
I’ve been enjoying Christina Perri’s Head or Heart album this past week. It’s a great one for me to sing along as her range is about similar as mine though the high register’s a bit hard for me without screeeeching. I’ve been thinking of learning a new skill and voice lessons is one that is on top of the list.
