Bourjois Colorissimo lip palettes* £8.99

launches June 2012 – available from Boots and Superdrug

Bourjois have taken their classic round palette, more familiar with their smokey eyes trio, and filled it full of this season’s hottest new lip colour combinations. The Colorissimo palette comes in four different harmonies inspired by catwalk colours and are all perfectly pocket-sized and practical, encased in chic black packaging with a delicious vanilla scent to boot. The formulation of these lipsticks is really creamy and moisturising, as well as being surprisingly pigmented. Within the palettes, each lipstick is designed to compliment one another so can be worn alone or blended together to create a brand new shade. I wasn’t much of a fan of the sponge applicator that features in the Colorissimo palettes so I cast that aside in favour of my finger or a lip brush. The colour of each lipstick is really rich and long-lasting, bright and punchy, despite having quite a buttery-balm like quality and appearance. The finish on the lips is very pretty with a pearly shine and lustre.

02. Roses Muses – The Romantic

Top, Rose Nacre – a blush pink

Middle, Rose Neon, a sensational fuchsia

Bottom, Rose Class – a dark, rocky yet chic rosewood

The Roses Muses palette houses three easy-to-wear pinks, ranging from a soft blush to a vivid fuchsia completed by a deep cherry pink. This is definitely my favourite palette out of the two I have tried, with the stunning Rose Neon being the standout colour for me.

04. Nudes Dandy – The Preppy Look

Top, Brun Rose – a pinkish beige

Middle, Brun Brique – an electric peach

Bottom, Chocolat – a true brown

The Nudes Dandy palette brings us the bare necessities with three sophisticated nudes beginning with a muted beige followed by a truly perfect peach, all finished off with a rich, chocolatey brown. The brown shade doesn’t really float my boat but the peach lipstick is just gorgeous and a definite summertime shade.

I think the Colorissimo lip palettes are another fabulous addition to Bourjois’ bulging beauty range. I like the fact you have three complimenting shades all in one place, and they are easy enough to smooth on with you finger without the need for a mirror or careful application.

    I love the idea of theses, im thinking its gunna be a must try 🙂 Bourjois seem to be going up in my books lately 🙂 xx

    I absolutely love the colours! but I often find that lip palettes are difficult to use in terms of building it up on your lips. Is it possible to build them up do they have more of a sheer coverage? xxxx

  11. 13th April 2012 / 8:25 pm

    those are amazing! adding them both to my wishlist immediately xx

  12. 13th April 2012 / 8:35 pm

    Ooh, these look lovely. A bit baffled about the sponge applicator though. 🙂 x

  13. 13th April 2012 / 9:08 pm

    @heather – not sheer at all. They are really pigmented and very buildable if you want a really intense colour. 🙂

    posts like these are why i frickin love your blog! best lip swatcher EVER, I know not everyone does it because shades look different on different lips blah blah but I really appreciate the effort you make to do this! x

    @sophie – ah thank you so much – I really appreciate your comment and so happy you find my posts useful x

  16. 13th April 2012 / 9:21 pm

    I agree about the sponge tip applicator, bit odd for a lip palette and wouldn't it soak up too much product before going on the lips? Lovely colours though and they look great on your lips. 🙂 x

    They look incredible! Especially Roses Muses xx

    I can see them being able to do a lot with this concept. A plummy one for winter perhaps. I'm not sure I'll be picking one of these up though. I've got more glosses than I need!

    Thanks for the post hun!
