Summer Must Have Makeup: Bourjois Paris Rouge Hi-Tech Review
Aren't random acts of kindness awesome?
I was discussing Bourjois Paris's New Rouge Hi-Tech a few weeks ago and one of my readers in England kindly e-mailed me soon after asking if I'd like a CP for it!
A big thanks goes out to Laura for helping the Muse out! Laura sent over my stain with a beautiful card that is now gracing my desk!
You can thank her for this review since this new stain is not yet available within the US as of yet!
At first glance the packaging misleads you into believing this is a creamy lip color however its very much a stain! I couldn't be more thrilled with this as my very favorite product from Bourjous Paris, Bons Baisers de Paris, has long since been gone from our shelves!
The packaging is identical to the Bourjois Paris Shimmer Shine Liquid Eye Shadow. Unscrew to reveal the top of the wand applicator, pop the applicator out, and you're ready to rock.
The formula is your typical gel like stain that's a deep rose pigment. These come in a few shade options and I got the deeper shade of pink available. I didn't find the formula drying in the least. Since this is a gel-like texture it goes on very moist and wet and leaves behind beautiful, pink lips. I love the look of "just bitten" lips or lips that look like I just had a cherry ice pop and this indeed gives me that look!
This is an ideal item for Summer and definately makes its way onto my Summer Makeup Must Have list simply because it's refreshing, light, extremely long wearing and gives a beautiful burst of color to my lips without being heavy!
I went ahead and got really random by applying it to my cheeks as well as my lips. I'm happy to report it doubles up as a killer cheek stain. Although I'm somewhat grossed out by using one product on my lips and cheeks (as you may have already read my distaste for this from my Stila Cherry Crush Review) I couldn't resist trying this out. It gave my cheeks a lovely blushing color! I was so taken with it on my cheeks that I may just need a back up bottle to use as a cheek stain!
I'm thinking at this price you can easily use it as a Benefit Benetint or Posietint dupe! You get almost identical results plus it's much, much cheaper! This was available on sale at Boots for £5.75 and will likely cost between $12 and $16 USD when it arrives on our side of the pond.
All in all Bourjois Paris has another winner on it's hands! Rouge Hi-Tech definately gets a hearty Muse Approval!
The Muse is loving the cost, loving the fresh look it creates, and really loving the packaging! What's not to like!
This morning I did a quickie FOTD using Bourjois Paris Hi-Tech Rouge on both my lips and my cheeks. I did two versions of the photo which shows me wearing the stain with and without gloss. I think the gloss really makes the color of the stain pop!
The Muse is loving this stain!
Tell the Muse!
