I hope you're all doing fine. Due to moving in one week I'm currently sitting on the floor while writing this entry since my desk and chair is already gone "^^
I wanted to review one of the products I bought in Paris after reading a few good reviews online.
What they say:
Exclusive formula: Matte finish and incredibly light.
Rouge Edition Velvet by Bourjois is the new era of lipsticks. An amazing, irresistible formula.
Its soft, melting texture glides on to the lips and turns into a matt, velvety and incredibly light colour. Lips are left smooth and soft as velvet.
Enriched with evanescent oils, it’s incredibly sensuous formula provides a soft, second-skin feel, without drying or fading lips.
Couldn't find the ingredients list
The packaging looks really nice in my opinion, a square, see-through, plastic little bottle that shows the actual color of the product. The applicator is a generic sponge that still gives a good application.
The texture is very creamy and smooth, almost velvety. It feels very good on the skin when you swatch it and even better on your lips. It glides on so smoothly it's almost unbelievable.
One point that's a bit of a turn-off is the smell. I can't even describe the smell, I just know that I don't like it. Thankfully it vanishes pretty soon and isn't too bad on the lips.

I can also confirm that the formula doesn't dry out the lips. Of course they don't feel baby-smooth like when you apply lip balm but they still feel good after wearing it for hours. For which I'm really thankful, I have rather dry lips so most matte formulas are a no-go for me.
The color I chose is a really nice shade for the colder weather. I'm actually kinda sad I only picked up one color since Bourjois isn't available in Germany. But I will definitely repurchase this somehow once it's empty.
Pros: not drying, long lasting, nice pigmentation, matte/velvety finish
Cons: kinda strange smell, not availabe in Germany
