Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Laque in 04 Viens Si Tu Roses - Review

Since I'm a big fan of the Bourjois Rouge Edition line, I had to jump at the chance to have a few of a new Aqua Laques sent to me in my recent Bourjois Haul that was facilitated by the lovely Pigmented Lips.

Viens Si Tu Roses is a raspberry red pink shade with a very glossy finish. The formula is a little thicker than a YSL Glossy Stain. The product comes with a doe foot applicator, and the gloss formula goes on smoothly. The gloss is quite pigmented and very, very shiny. There is a slight fruit scent that does fade after application. I wore this with my usual lip primer underneath, but with no lip liner. There was no bleeding or feathering. The formula felt light and mildly hydrating, not drying at all.

Since the formula is super glossy, it does transfer easily. The product left a stain on the lips, and the remaining product felt like a balm on the lips after the gloss transferred off. If you want the super glossy look all day, you will have to reapply more frequently. 

I liked this product a lot. It isn't on the YSL Glossy Stain's level by any means, but it's definitely a cheaper alternative for those looking for a similar product and not wanting to drop that sort of cash. Unfortunately, Bourjois is a little harder to come by if you're in the US (Walgreens is starting to carry it, though!) so you'll need a friend to send it to you if you want this specific product. (Or you know, order from Boots, etc.)
