Bourjois Color Boost in Red Island

Bourjois Color Boost lip crayon in 05. Red Island* £7.99
available from Boots and Superdrug in October 2013

Bourjois has recently added two new lip crayon shades to their Color Boost range which I first posted about here, back during the sunnier climates of July. These two new shades add a darker, autumnal feel to the range and compliment a smokey eye look absolutely perfectly. Plum Russian is a deep purple plum shade which everyone needs in the makeup collection for that classic Fall makeup look that is plastered all over the beauty editorials at the moment, and then there is Red Island which is described simply as a true, classic red. This is a truly beautiful colour that has the same intense pigmentation and high-shine, glossy finish that I experienced with the other Color Boost crayons. It is smooth and soft to apply and gives your lips a full, luscious shot of colour whilst feeling hydrating and comfortable to wear. You can beat a classic red lip for a night out, paired with a simple smokey eye and bronzed skin, and this one ticks all the boxes for an ultra glamorous look!

Will you be checking out these new shades from Bourjois?

    This shade is quite similar to Sunrise Red, so I am not interested in this one. What about the second shade?

    Literally cannot believe the colour pay off of this! I've not been bothered by the crayon trend as they're so neither here nor there. This looks amazing though!

    As lovely as this looks I don't think I'll be buying Red Island, however I will be picking up Plum Russian as it reminds me of Rebel, which is one of my favourite lipsticks. It'll be great to wear if I want to give my lips a bit of a break from the drying affect that Rebel can have sometimes.

    I NEED that lip crayon shade, it's the most perfect shade πŸ™‚

    I absolutely love the original Colour Boost crayons that they bought out and have found myself wearing them constantly. I'm really excited to try the new shades they're bringing out for AW13! Plum Russian is my favourite.
    This colour looks gorgeous on you.
