I got so excited when I saw the new shades of Bourjois Colour Boosts on the shelves at Boots! They were one of the most coveted products of the summer, everyone was raving about them and rightly so. Now there are two new shades out for Autumn, 05 Red Island and 06 Plum Russian, both of which are absolute staples for your Autumn/Winter make-up bag…you heard it here first!
I don’t wear bright coloured lipstick as much as I do nude or peachy pink shades, especially during the day. I am always conscious that I may smudge it or it wears off leaving it patchy or most probably because I can’t be bothered…a nude lip is so much easier, right?! Since purchasing these, that couldn’t be further from the truth and have been wearing them constantly! They are so easy to wear, they glide on effortlessly and leave a beautiful pigmented glaze to the lips.
Red Island is a beautiful true red shade, which although bright, somehow doesn’t look over the top even for daytime wear… a possible contender for my Christmas Day lip I think! Plum Russian is a gorgeous berry shade (which is what I am wearing in the picture above), that is more blue-toned but not too dark or vampy, making it a perfect autumn shade.
Even though the colour on these is very apparant and vibrant, they feel so sheer and comfortable. They are very moisturising and even as they wear, they do not feel drying at all on the lips. They claim comfort and hydration for 10 hours, although I would say that they would never last for 10 hours. I only mangaged a couple of hours of wear before the need to reapply, which I don’t really mind as it is so easy because of the fantastic formulation. They also have an SPF 15, which is important even in the colder months to protect your lips. I can see me getting a lot if wear out of these over the next few months, I cannot say a bad thing about them!
