Bourjois likes it HOT!

I believe that instead of YSL's Kiss&Blush, we'd have Bourjois Rouge Velvets as one of my standout products for 2014. – if I just had the chance or the willpower to try more shades than one! I own and adore the Bourjois Rouge Velvet liquid lipstick in Nude-is. I love it, use it almost on a daily basis – even planned to purchase the infamous Pink Ponk shade as it must be one of rare cool-toned pinks that works well with my complexion. After trying this scorching little number, I'm absolutely sure that Pink Pong will be me probably along with another shade or two. Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick in Hot Pepper (03) is also a rarity in my make-up stash. I usually steer clear from either cool-toned pinks or from orange anything. However – however, this orangey/red is such a beautiful shade that doesn't make my yellow undertone look sickly at all! You know the deal with Rouge Velvets – they're small, compact, packaging is well made, there's a truly decent array of colors suitable for everyone out there, they're insanely pigmented and – they're a kind of matte that everyone's friend and her mother can wear. 


Vjerujem da bi umjesto YSL Kiss&Blush ljepotana imali Bourjois Rouge Velvet ruzeve medju favoritima 2014. godine da sam samo bila odlucnija isprobati vise od jedne nijanse! Posjedujem i jako, jako volim Bourjois Rouge Velvet tecni ruz za usne u nijansi Nude-ist. Divan je, koristim ga gotovo svaki dan – cak sam planirala nabaviti nijansu Pink Pong posto je jedna od rijetkih ruzicastih nijansi izrazito hladnog podtona koja odgovara mom tenu. Nakon sto sam isprobala vatrenu nijansu sa fotografije, u mom umu vise nema sumnje da ce Pink Pong postati dijelom moje kolekcije – pa cak mozda i jos koja nijansa osim njega. Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet ruz u nijansi Hot Pepper (03) je takodjer raritet u smislu da izbjegavam ili izrazito hladni podton kod ruzicastih nijansi ili uopsteno narandzastu boju. Ipak (zaista postoji jedno ‘ali’) – ova crvena nijansa sa narandzastim podtonom je izuzetno lijepa te mi uopste ne cini dodatno izrazenim moj zuti podton tena. Znate vec neke osnove po pitanju Rouge Velvet tecnih ruzeva – maleni su, kompaktni, pakovanje je simpaticno i kvalitetno izradjeno, na raspolaganju imamo zaista pristojan dijapazon nijansi za gotovo svaki ukus, izrazite su pigmentacije i – mat su finisa koji je toliko ‘zahvalan’ da ga bez problema moze iznijeti svaka prijateljica, sestra, kolegica i njena mama. Cijena iznosi cca 23KM – mislim da ovi ruzevi toliko i vrijede ali mislim da bi bili jos popularniji ukoliko bi cijena spala ispod 20KM (Bourjois – slusas li?).

There is a certain difference between this hot, hot, hot tomato red and the nudey offering, though. Whilst Nude-ist is a really thick, creamy textured liquid lipstick (almost a creamy/mousse kind) the Hot Pepper has a completely different texture. It's more watery, more sheer and application is also different. I've noticed that two or even three thin-ish layers combined give this amazing pop of color on my lips. Now, for some, the watery texture won't sound too great but for such a wowza color, I think it's a good thing as it allows us to layer it and wear it from sheer to full-on. It doesn't seep into fine lines, doesn't ‘bleed’ or anything – it just has a different texture but all the properties are the same. Amazing color vibrancy – I really love how juicy this red is! At first it has a slight sheen up until the moment it dries completely off and than you get that velvety matte finish. It lasts literally for more than 5h on me – and that's incredible! I can eat and drink, and it still stays on. When it fades, it does so gradually (no patchiness) and my lips aren't too dry after wearing it. I've heard that these have a strong smell, but for the life of me – I just cannot sense it! It's probably just me, my nose has gone haywire but this could be a good thing as there's nothing to deter me from more purchases (har-har)…

Prijavljujem da postoji odredjena razlika u teksturi izmedju nudaste nijanse koju koristim duze vrijeme i ove vruce papricice. Dok je nijansa Nude-ist prilicno guste, kremaste formulacije (skoro kao da je rijec o pjenasto-kremastom hibridu), Hot Pepper je blago razvodnjena. Zbog toga je moguce nanositi u slojevima i postizati razlicite efekte i intenzitet na usnama – od poluprozirnog stain-a na usnama, do zarko crvenih ljubilica (izmislila sam ovu rijec, zar ne?). Sada kao da cujem misli par vas – ne, nemojte da brinete da ce rijedja tekstura utjecati na nanosenje i uopsteni efekat na usnama. Inace bih ostala rezervisana po ovom pitanju ali mislim da je cak zbog ovako jarke boje ta rijedja tekstura dobra stvar. Kao sto sam spomenula, jedan sloj i utapkavanje prstima u usne kreira izvrstan stain za svakodnevno nosenje koji djeluje jednako efektno i svjeze ako bi ovaj ruz nanijeli u dva ili cak tri sloja kada su usne u potpunosti natopljene socno crvenom bojom. Uopste se ne uvlaci u sitne borice, ne prelazi ivice usana i ne istice suhocu unatoc barsunastom finisu. Odmah po nanosenju ruz ima blagi sjaj, no nakon sto se potpuno osusi vidljiv je taj barsunasto/mat efekat koji garantuje i odlicnu trajnost. Na mojim usnama, bez obzira da li sam konzumirala jelo ili pice, ovaj ruz ostaje minimalno 5h! Kada pocne blijediti, to cini ravnomjerno i ta faza ne izgleda neprijatno. Iz vise izvora sam cula da ovi ruzevi imaju specifican miris a potpuna je misterija zbog cega ja taj miris uopste ne osjetim – posebno je cudno ako imamo u vidu da je po misljenju mnogih taj miris dosta izrazen. Sigurno je do mojih nosnica ali mozda je to i dobra stvar – uopste nemam niti jedan-jedini razlog zbog kojeg bih odlagala dalju kupovinu.
