There are 2 shades of the Bourjois Rouge Velvet matte lip colours I haven’t come across before and it’s because, until now, they have been exclusive to Very. Here’s a look at the beauties that are Grand Cru and Nude-ist.
The Bourjois Rouge Velvet formula is incredible! I actually think it is the best matte liquid lipstick out, across all price brackets. They have seriously cracked it with this one!
Check out all the original shades in my earlier post on them. Grand Cru and Nude-ist are really beautiful too – I love them!!
Bourjois Rouge Velvet – Grand Cru & Nude-ist Swatches
Strangely, Grand Cru doesn’t swatch that well, but forget that, it is absolutely to die for on the lips! Take a look!
It applies so evenly and beautifully and literally lasts and lasts and lasts! I love it nearly as much as my firm favourite, Hot Pepper which is a lovely bright red (swatched here).
If you haven’t tried the Rouge Velvet yet, you just have to!! They are intensely pigmented, are very light and fluid as they are applied and there’s lots of time to perfect the look before they set. When they do set, they are there to stay – they never crack, peel or even fade! Also, if you want to top up, they layer incredibly well too and it doesn’t cause any problems with the finish. Excellent!

Find the full Bourjois Rouge Velvet line up at Boots. They are £8.99 each which I think is an incredible price for such a beautiful and high performance lip product.
