I haven’t written anything for a long time - there is neither time nor inspiration - but I can’t get past my new (and almost new) liquid matte lipsticks. Although so many interesting and unapproved things got into my makeup bag, my hands, apparently, will not reach them.
I have been hunting for Bourgeois lipsticks for a long time - in our nearest stores they are simply swept away at the moment, leaving a couple of shades that are not most appropriate for me. Therefore, I collected my 4 lipsticks at different stores and at very different prices.
Guerlain bought more out of despair, when she could not find Bourgeois anywhere)) She, of course, is good, to be sure, but for the price she alone costs as much as these four. Of course, she has cool packaging - but these bells and whistles even interfere with my use, to be honest. And the product there is 6 ml, while in Bourgeois 7.7 ml.
But let's see them in action.
First general:Lipstick Bourgeois
struck me with its unsurpassed persistence. I put them in the morning and then go all day, they even experience lunch without problems (only if there is something especially greasy, not really caring for lipstick, you will have to tint in the center of the lips).
They have a sweetish aroma, which is unpleasant for me, but not enough to concentrate on it.
The texture of the liquid souffle is all I could think of to describe this consistency.
It dries pretty quickly. If you blot the first layer (even if very slightly), then the lipstick will not leave any traces on anything in the future.
Three of my four shades after shrinkage are completely matte, only 01 is satin.
To wash off their big problem - even micellar does not take them right away. And I can’t wipe a couple of days with my hands at all.
They create a slight feeling of dryness on the lips, but did not cause any problems.
As for Guerlain
, there are differences:
Persistence is usual - that is, lipstick can be erased without resorting to micellar water, just a damp cotton pad.
If I don’t eat, then I suspect that it will last a long time, but I can’t live without food for more than 4 hours, so I didn’t have the opportunity to check it. After a meal, a full update is required.
The finish is not dull matte, rather satin.
The smell is weak and not annoying. Violets.
It doesn’t cause any discomfort, I don’t feel any dryness.
Leaves small traces.
Here is a Gerlen pack containing two mirrors. Very heavy case.
And now a comparative swatch of all shades together.

And this is up to:
Now a photo of each shade in action (let's go from right to left).
To begin with, I am without lipstick, with a transparent Diorovsky maximizer.Guerlain Rouge G L'extrait Crème de Rouge Intense Matte Color M06 AVARICE
Pleasant natural nude shade. It has a share of beige and pink. Not light, but not dark.
The properties are described above.Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick 07 Nude-ist
Shade of a dusty berry rose. Very dusty))Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick 04 Peach Club
Although the name of the shade leads us to a peach, do not give in - the color is rather carrot red. If mashed tomatoes and carrots were made, the color would probably be similar. Bright and saturated.
In the second picture, the color is more reliable.Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick 01 Personne ne rouge!
The only one of the four who has a satin finish. The color is red. Just red. Compared to the two neighboring ones, it seems cold, even leaving in raspberry - but this is not so, it is only against the background of two rather warm shades. I would say that it is neutral.Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick 03 Hot Pepper
Scarlet. And what is surprising: in the stick, the color is different from the 04th shade, and on the skin the difference is minimal. He's just a little redder than 04 (that one is more orange).
Lipstick (all) I am very pleased. I don’t think that I will use them in the autumn-winter period, when my lips require additional care (I definitely will not bourgeois, Gerlen is in doubt). But for the summer - that’s what you need. I do not like to feel greasy, creamy and oily textures on my lips in the heat.Finally, I want to know your opinion - which lipstick suits me better?) (The first option without lipstick is also considered )
