Wednesday Beauty Buys - Boots 3 for 2

Bourjois Lip Products

Boots often have a 3 for 2 offer on certain brands or on their skincare.This is a good time to stock up on your usual creams and potions as it saves money in the long term.

It is also a good opportunity to grab a few lipsticks you have had your eye on for a more reasonable price. I had some points to spend on my Boots card and with the 3 for 2 offer had this lot covered.

I particularly wanted to try the Shine Edition ( silver package) as the consistency is similar to the Revlon Lip Butters that I adore, but without the glittery bits that sometimes can be a little too much in the lip butters.

  1. Bourgois Shine Edition 23
  2. Bourgois Colour Boost 01  Red Sunrise
  3. Rouge Edition 18

The Shine Edition lip colour is a lovely alternative to the lip butters . It is quite a "wet" product to apply, but is absorbed quickly into the lips leaving a lovely soft colour with a subtle shine. This is not too 'gloss like' either which I like. I would get more colours in this.

The Colour Boost pencil is a great watermelon red . It is a little soft to apply and the staying power isn't great, but it is easy to carry in your bag and to reapply when needed. I probably wouldn't buy from this range again unless they had a colour that was unavailable in other similar ranges that have better staying power.

The Rouge Edition is more of a traditional lipstick texture, although I was a little disappointed in the staying power. I prefer Rimmels Moisture Renew range, which has the added benefit of hyaluronic acid in it, to this so I probably wouldn't buy from this range again.

Have you tried any of the Bourgois lip products ?

You can buy these products from Boots .

  1. I never know where to start with trying lip products. If I don't scare myself in the mirror, it might get a look in. Having said that, I'm trying to break myself into more colours and I'm actively trying to avoid nude colours. I'm very much a lipstick virgin.

  2. I spent a fortune in Boots yesterday on boring stuff - sun cream and deodrants. I can read your post and pretend!

  3. I haven't used any of their lip products. Shame about the pencil I was hoping you was going to say it was as good as a Clinique Chubby stick for half the price! x

  4. I was looking at the Bourjois Colour Boost the other day - thought it looked similar to the Revlon Balm stains - shame it doesn't have the lasting power. I like the sound of the Shine Edition - will probably get one of these for holiday! xx
