“Red lipstick is to women, what sports cars to men” -So rightly said.
I have seen in some beauty news video tracking men’s eye movements, which shows women in red garnered a lingering 7.3 second gaze, while those wearing pinks and naturals got 2.2 seconds. But red lipstick is about more than just getting noticed. A key to instant gorgeous glamour that brightens the face and can actually make you feel more confident. It is an ageless beauty wonder.
My today’s post is on such a wonder from my vanity, its Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick in shade number 13- Rouge Jet Set

- Packaging:The lipstick comes in a sturdy black rectangular case with a transparent pot underneath. The pot is not detachable, but makes it easier to detect shades. Shade name written on the cap and the number written at the base. One has to pull open the shade tag to read the ingredients that are written inside.
- Shade:Rouge Jet Set (13) is said to be “an ultra glamorous classic red”. To me it is a deep, sultry, hot rod red which looks very elegant, bold and sophisticated, an ultimate scarlet for every skin tone.
The formula is said to be enriched with Orchid Blossom Extract for 10 hours of hydration. It is creamy and buttery soft with a high-gloss sheen that feels great on my chapped winter lips, keeps them moisturized and prevent from further drying out. The super moisturizing formula helps to glide on thick and creamy without streaking, and never feels heavy on lips. It doesn’t bleed, doesn’t settle into fine lines and neither highlights patches.
It has completely rich and utterly beautiful color payoff. The hand swatch shows the colour intensity at one swipe.
It is mindblowing-ly long-lasting through both dinner and drinks. I wore it for 7hours at a stretch, and when I came back home and looked into the mirror, it felt like I was wearing some classy matte red, the glossiness was gone, but the stain was intact.
