Swatches: More Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick Shades

Last week I wrote about Bourjois' newest lipstick, Rouge Edition.  Boasting great pigmentation, comfortable long wear and a great shade range, I've been wearing them to death and absolutely loving them - they really perform like a lipstick far more expensive than their £7.99 price tag.  I was lucky enough to be sent a few more shades (which are a little more pale-faced redhead friendly), so here are some more swatches.

Rouge Podium is a gorgeous red - it's not a true blue based red (although there is one in the range), but a brick red which is both flattering and easy to wear.  Violine Strass is a plum violet with a fuschia tone to it - the fuschia doesn't really come through in the photos, but it's much brighter than it appears.  Worth swatching before purchase, for sure.  Rose Millesime is a medium coral pink which is a bit of a dead ringer for my Burberry Primrose Hill Pink Lip Cover - similar finish, too, and much cheaper.  Rose Tweed is a lovely neutral shade - it doesn't have too much beige in it, which is great in my mind, as I look a bit dead with a beigey neutral lip.

As with the others I reviewed last week, these lipsticks are gorgeously pigmented, wear beautifully, and feel fantastic on the lip.  I'd highly recommend checking them out when they launch later this month.
