Iâ€™m here with another shade of Bourjois Rouge edition velvet and this time it is the darkest from their range, so MARSALA it looks to me, what say you? The moment I applied this I was totally in love with the shade of the year, Iâ€™m not sure if you agree with me but to me this looks like a perfect FALL SHADE.
Size â€“ 6.7 ml, Price â€“ Â£ 9, Available at ASOS and Feel unique
My experience with Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet 8 Grand Cru:
Shade â€“ No 8 Grand Cru is warm toned deep dark Burgundy Wine shade with soft velvety matte finish to it. Iâ€™m NC 40 and even without any makeup my skin was looking so bright and polished, if you are doing full on base am sure it will come out even more stark. I have to mention that when I wore this , my hubby came to me and said â€œ So much foundation you are wearingâ€ and I was like â€œHELL , I donâ€™t even have concealer leave aside foundation â€œ . The shade is very flattering but may be little too much for lighter skin tone.
Texture and staying power â€“ The texture of this is little different from other two shades I tried , it doesnâ€™t come as even in single stroke and I have to cover unevenness with another layer and then also I need to be really careful . I just have this con for a shade like this, else it is wonderful. It has same velvety feeling and doesnâ€™t settle in fine lines. I get 5 â€“ 6 hrs of solid wear with this and then it starts to fade from inner corners. The last traces of the colour needs to be removed with good makeup remover.
Pigmentation â€“ It is beautifully pigmented and is opaque in two layers, just at some places it looks uneven but another layer and it sits pretty for hrs.
What I like about Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet 8 Grand Cru:
- The shade is super gorgeous.
- The finish is to die for.
- The staying power is awesome.
- The packaging is simple and easy to work with.
What I donâ€™t like about Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet 8 Grand Cru:
- They are not yet launched in India.
- The finish is little uneven in single layer and need to be carefully applied.
Ratings â€“ 4.5/5
Recommendations â€“ When I tried this shade for the first time it was little uneven, second time it went smooth but required a lot of detailing to cover every corners evenly. I didnâ€™t face any issue with the two shades I tried and hence deducting just .5 for this. It is stunning shade and is very flattering, very GOTH , I would say.
