Bourjois Happy Nude Year Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick

If I had to compile a list of my favourite beauty picks from 2014 then, without a doubt, I would choose the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet range as some of my top lipstick products. Their consistency, staying-power, perfectly matte finish and selection of shades have won me over and the fact they are under a tenner as well makes them a fab addition to anyone’s makeup collection.

Their texture is light and almost gel-like and glide onto the lips easily. The colour dries quickly after application to a flattering matte finish which seems to last hours upon hours without drying or becoming patchy. They are best applied little by little building up the colour rather than layering a large amount on at once. The sponge applicator is handy to really define the shape of your lips and is easy to use on the go to touch up your lipstick after eating or drinking. Happy Nude Year* is the most recent addition to the Rouge Edition Velvet range and is a pretty rose-pink shade, a little less brown and more nude than their earlier release – Nude-ist. I just adore this colour and is the perfect lipstick to pick when you want something natural yet not too nude to perk up your finished look. You can get your hands on Happy Nude Year and the rest of the Rouge Edition Velvet shades from Boots for £8.99. I would definitely also recommend checking out Pink Pong – another one of my personal favourites for a more a glamorous, pink lip!

    I love that color! I also love the name — I'm such sucker for nudes.

    Happy Nude Year is such a pretty shade, cute name too, and a lovely addition to the shade range. I have a couple of these and love them to bits!
