Bonjour, my lovelies! ♥
Did you enjoy the long Raya weekend? I sure did; it was a great opportunity to catch up with friends and discover new places. Talking about discovering new things, I'm glad to have found this gorgeous Bourjois lipstick, which was one of the items I won from Bourjois Malaysia's contest. (✿◠‿◠)
This lipstick is the Bourjois Rouge Edition lipstick, and the shade I have here is #17 Rose Millésime. The Rouge Edition lipsticks are one of Bourjois' top 3 bestselling items, the other two being their Healthy Mix Foundation and Little Round Pot Blush (which I will also review in separate posts).
Packaging-wise, the Rouge Edition lipsticks are fairly standard. It comes in a sleek black, square, lightweight plastic casing, with a section at the bottom showing the shade colour and number. Although light, it is quite sturdy, and the cover snaps close firmly enough that you don't have to worry too much about it accidentally popping open when thrown into a bag. The words 'Rouge Edition' are printed on one side of the cap, while the Bourjois wording is embossed on the adjoining side.
#17 Rose Millésime (means vintage rose in French) is a beautiful rose pink shade with subtle shimmer, and is definitely one of the most popular out of the 10 shades available here. In the tube, it looks similar to my Peripera #10 Rose Pink, just slightly lighter. There is no noticeable scent to the lipstick, although there is a faint lipstick-y smell if you take a very close sniff at the tube. (And really, who does that?!)
