There’s a Buzz about Rouge!….A Lipcote Lipstick Review

November 5, 2015


Brand Name: Bourjois

Lipstick Colour: Rouge Buzz

Price: £7.99

Lipcote Rating: 5/5

The Bourjois rouge edition range includes unsurprisingly a few red lip colours, and due to our ever-lasting love affair with red lipstick, we thought ‘Rouge Buzz’ would be a perfect starting point for review! This colour is a subtly orange red with yellow undertones. On first impressions it’s a great alternative to the bright tangerine oranges that have flooded the high street recently, meaning you can safely experiment with the SS14 trend if you’re not keen on going all the way!

From the first try, we were amazed at how supple our lips felt once we’d secured this shade with Lipcote. This is probably due to the orchid extract in the formula which feels creamy and is easy to work into the lips. Coupling this with its high density pigment this lipstick is sure to be a winner, and only needed one blot between a couple of layers to really paint your pout proud.

The packaging has a snap shut lid, with the coloured end being a quick and easy indicator of the tone inside. Great when you’re in a hurry and need to find the perfect shade from your kit fast! We imagine Rouge Buzz will co-ordinate perfectly with relaxed day or evening wear, meaning it’s a lovely transitional colour for spring to summer outfits whether at work or play.

With its affordable price point, boldly designed lid with pink and red writing, and slick application, this confident, beautiful red feels like a modern classic in the making. x
