Beauty & Style
Glossy, balm lipsticks were a huge hit last summer, from Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters, The Body Shop Color Crush to the Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids. These types of creamy lipsticks offer vibrant color payoff on the lips while adding a shiny, gloss effect. The formula is always super lightweight and applies smoothly, enhancing your natural lips.
Now comes Bourjois with their latest lipstick range for 2014. Bourjois products have come a long way, from the fashionable city of Paris to our local Pakistani supermarkets. The Shine Edition lipsticks follow up their popular Rouge Edition lipsticks.
Balm Lipstick Craze
Plenty of brands hoped onto the hydrating, moisturizing lipsticks. The smooth and creamy texture is ideal for drier weather seasons and even those with fine lip lines. Unlike matte finish lipsticks, glossy lipsticks give the appearance of healthy, fuller lips. These feel much nicer on the lips and provide a nourishing finish.
Bourjois Product Claims
A new generation formula that brings shine, color and comfort to your lips. An ultra-shine result, thanks to a new ¼ gloss extract for amazing shine-wrapped colour. The new sensuous formula gives ultimate comfort. Enriched with nourishing mango butter extracts, Shine Edition leaves lips moisturized for up to 10 hrs**. Its rich and melting formula provides cushion comfort and makes application addictive!
Packaged in a cute metallic casing, each lipstick case is fun and bright with sequencing swatch on the ends of the lipstick for easy shade selection. For emergency touch-ups, the reflective packaging can double up as a mirror.
Effortless, Glossy Lips
The texture of these lipsticks is very smooth and soft with a faint fruity scent added to the mix. They apply sheerer as compared to the Revlon Lip Butters that feel heavier on the lips.
The shades from this range can wear off quite quickly, don’t expect a long 10 hours of wear with these as the claims mention. The lighter peaches and pinks do not last as long as the deeper mauve.
If you’re looking for a foolproof lipstick for easy application, these are perfect for you! You don’t need a mirror for precise application since the creamy texture blends in smoothly on your lips for an effortlessly glossy lip.
