I am a self-proclaimed hoarder of beauty stuff. The SAs at my local beauty shops cannot stop grinning from ear to ear when they see me entering the shop. They know that if I see something good, I will never stop at buying just one. I will buy at least two products from the same variant – sometimes more. I love bright colors. Though n*de colors are useful, I somehow don’t buy them very often. A few days back, I had reviewed this variant of lipstick in the shade 02 Fuchsia Libre which was a hot pink color. Today, I am taking a break from my concealer reviews, and reviewing another shade from the same collection. It is named “01 – Red Sunrise.
A lip crayon bursting with vibrant colour and irresistible moisture. With its melting formula, Color Boost leaves a radiant veil of colour on the lips with just enough shine and moisture to enhance each shade. A new generation formula that provides a bare lip sensation thanks to its light and non-sticky texture. With its silk extract formula, Color Boost brings comfort and hydration to your lips for 10 hours. Its waterproof colour and SPF15 make Color Boost both practical and beautiful! Available in 4 luminous, easy-to-wear colors.
Rs. 785/- for 2.75 gm of product.
My Experience with Bourjois Color Boost Glossy Finish Lipstick – Red Sunrise:
I have already talked about this product in my review post a few days back. Hence I won’t bore you with the same details again. I will mainly highlight the key points. The product comes in a retractable pencil form, housed in a similar color plastic body. You will easily recognize this shade if you have more than one of the same product. It has a mild, pleasant fragrance; and a slight plumping effect on the lips. The formula is very smooth, creamy and extremely moisturizing on the lips. The tip of the pencil is very useful in outlining the lips, after which you can fill the lips with the color.
The formula is extremely pigmented, and gives a very good color pay-off. The color remains glossy on the lips for 3-4 hours and then turns semi matte. A light meal will take off the sheen, whereas a heavy meal will take off the entire color, leaving a nice tint on the lips. It does not dry out the lips even after fading. However, I have found that if I apply this color with a very light hand, my lips do tend to dry out a bit. It has a SPF of 15, which is decent enough to protect the lips from the sun. The formula is light, non-sticky but extremely rich. It does not sit on my lip lines. It rather covers up the lines, giving a smooth, glossy and polished look to the lips. It does not feather or bleed even a single bit.
I would have liked it to have more than four shades, but even these four shades are so pretty, I cannot complain much. The color Red Sunrise is an extremely wearable reddish pink color. It will look good on all skin tones. It is not very vamp-y looking. The finish is very smooth and glossy. You will not need to apply a lip balm or moisturise or exfoliate the lips before its application. It can be used on any kind of lips, any degree of pigmentation on lips, and it will still look fresh, opaque, glossy and extremely appealing.
