I was dying to pick one of these after reading some awesome reviews and HOT FOTD’s all around. But, as they are still not launched in India I ordered them from feel unique some time back and here I’m with my take for the shades I have. The first one is the best of the lot – Ole Flamingo; a seriously hot fuchsia.
Size – 6.7 ml,
Price – £ 9, Available at ASOS and Feel unique

My experience with Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet 05 Ole’ Flamingo:
Shade – # 5 Ole Flamingo is cool toned hot Fuchsia pink shade which is seriously gorgeous in tube and even more wonderful on lips. I have endless Fuchsia but trust me, this is the one which got me endless compliments and I can say this will be a hit this summer.
Texture and Staying power – The texture is so velvety like they claim and after few seconds it sets to almost matte looking finish. They do transfer a little but not something to complain about, once it sets it doesn’t move easily. They start to fade from inner part of lips but that too very evenly. I get 6 – 7 hrs of solid wear with this shade and then the deep pink stain needs to be removed with good waterproof remover. It is not drying and doesn’t settle in fine lines nor does it fades unevenly.
THE SWATCH Picture taken freshly applied :
Pigmentation – It is absolutely opaque in single swipe, I just need to level it with the product left on applicator. As it is so soft and emollient I need to be little more careful else it just spreads all over. I do recommend well exfoliated lips.
