Hello, lovelies! Today I’m featuring the lipstick I wore on my Messy Waves and Bright Lips post. This was gifted to me by Latasha during a makeup swap. Otherwise I would have never gotten my hands on this. This lipstick is part of the recent Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick collection. I’ve seen a few bloggers review the entire lipstick line so you can look for swatches online if you’re interested. If you’re from the U.S. you will probably have to track this online as Bourjois products aren’t sold there.
Fraise Remix has a shiny, creamy formula. It feels nice on the lips and isn’t drying. It’s quite bright so keep in mind that it might accentuate lip imperfections. I don’t usually love really shiny lipsticks but I think the finish works perfectly with Fraise Remix. It gives a juicy appearance. The color is a bit complex. When I first opened the tube I thought it was a strawberry/poppy red. I then swatched it on the back of my hands and thought it looked pink. On my lips it sometimes looks coral or slightly orange. As you can see in the image below, it matches my orange shirt perfectly. My conclusion is that it looks different depending on your skintone and the lighting.
I love this lipstick shade and am so grateful Latasha picked it out for me. I guess the raves for the Bourjois Rouge Edition line are well deserved.
