Considering that I literally cannot get enough of the Bourjois Rouge Velvet Matte liquid lipstick, I was absolutely thrilled to receive a brand new shade!! It is a very pretty pinky nude. Say hello to Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Happy Nude Year!
And what an absolutely gorgeous shade it is! As with all Rouge Velvets, the texture is just perfection – almost a moussey, creamy formula that glides over the skin and really smoothes it out.
Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Happy Nude Year Swatch
As you can see, Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Happy Nude Year isn’t a scary nude at all. It has the perfect amount of pink to flatter the complexion. It’s not all nudes that suit me, but this one works very well indeed.
Here’s one very, very light coat worn like a soft stain:
And here is an additional coat smoothed on top:
I just love it! It’s the perfect easy-to-wear, everyday shade to give you a really natural yet super pretty look. I think a lot of people are going to like this.
Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Happy Nude Year joins the 8 shade range which is available now at Boots. I absolutely love these lipsticks and if you want to check out their amazing staying power, make sure you watch my Day in the life of Ree & Rouge Velvet video.
