Bourjois Effet 3D Effect Lip Gloss 49 Brun Rose Authentic Review

Bourjois Effet 3D Effect Lip Gloss 49 – Brun Rose Authentic

Hi IMBB World,

Bourjois Effet 3D Effect Lip Gloss in Shade 49 Brun Rose Authentic

I often find that the shades available in UK or US for some items are different from what is available here in India and Bourjois Paris is one very bewildering company in that respect.  They don’t have a dedicated website for India, so whenever I think of buying something from Bourjois, I refer to their UK website.  Recently, when a friend came from UK, she offered to get me some Bourjois items for superb discount available in one of their BOGO sales.  I couldn’t find this shade listed in Bourjois UK website, shade #49 is now introduced in their summer line as ‘Rose Pacific’ and I was confused if it is an authentic one or discontinued shade.  My friend checked with an SA in a UK store and the SA mentioned that Bourjois does have lot of shades not listed on their website and they come up with different shades for different countries.

Anyway, when I got the product, I immediately went to the Bourjois Centre here in Lifestyle and matched the quality with the lip gloss available here and found it was the same (such a relief!).  However, this shade is quite different from the shade 49 available here.  Rati has taken the swatch of this shade here.

What Bourjois Says about Bourjois Effet 3D Effect Lip Gloss in Shade 49 – Brun Rose Authentic:

New Effet 3D lip gloss.  8 Hours Hydrate and shine in one. Oh my gloss! Our iconic Effet 3D lipgloss has had a makeover for its 10th year anniversary with a new formula, new shades and a new sleek packaging!
Its formula is now paraben-free and contains 92% of hydrating and nourishing protective agents for a real balm action whilte still enriched with micro crystalline wax for a deep, voluminous and ultra-shiny result.
You can now treat your lips to our historic 3 Dimensional volume for a super glossy plumped-up pout, while keeping them hydrated for 8 hours!

The specially designed brush applicator is even more precise for an easier application!

The new range contains 15 shades from nude to vibrant tones, with different effects and don’t worry, we kept our 9 timeless best seller shades and 6 new ones.

Price and Quantity:

I got it for around 4 pounds for 7.5 ml, but it is priced £6.99 in Superdrug. In India, its around 600 INR I guess.


I have no idea. I just read somewhere that this is “enriched” with microcrystalline wax. Ingredients are not listed either on the product or in the website.


I love Bourjois packaging. The design is just cute and very chic in my opinion. Unlike the normal cylindrical gloss bottles, these look nice in my vanity bag.

My Experience with Bourjois Effet 3D Effect Lip Gloss in Shade 49 – Brun Rose Authentic:

I am not a lip gloss fan; I use lipsticks much more and use gloss only when I am going out at night or for functions. Even if I use glosses, I prefer to dab them on the centre of my lips for a bit of a sheen. That being said, I must say I love this gloss. It doesn’t have any strong fragrances, it is not too sticky and the shimmers are not at all over the top.  I don’t expect much staying power in a gloss, so I am okay that this lasts for 3-4 hours without eating. In tube, the color looks much darker, but on lips they go sheer imparting a brownish-reddish tint. Their applicator is also very good, the soft brush tip helps in even coverage and glides smoothly over the lips.

I don’t exactly understand why they call it 3D or why they claim that the gloss will stay for 8 hours, seems like tall claims for me! It does give a nice natural sheen to the lips and the shimmer looks very beautiful especially for night wear, but I don’t see the 3D effect honestly. Regarding the moisturizing part, I have not much idea as I never wear any lipstick or gloss without a lip balm, but this doesn’t have a dryin- out feeling, so maybe it is good enough. One good thing is that this gloss can be worn alone over lip balm to give a very “naturally healthy lips” look, as even when it dries off, it leaves some color behind and the shimmer doesn’t look like dry glitter on lips. Another good thing is that it doesn’t have any parabens, so this is good for regular use. I am on the lookout for a daily wear, not-to-shimmery shade from this gloss range as I love this.

Summing up:

Pros of Bourjois Effet 3D Effect Lip Gloss in Shade 49 – Brun Rose Authentic:

  • Non-sticky gloss with not-too-bad and mild fragrance.
  • Imparts a nice healthy sheen to the lips and shimmers are beautiful and not cheap looking.
  • Doesn’t dry out the lips and leaves behind a nice tint and a layer of shimmer.
  • Lasts for a decent time of 3-4 hours without eating.
  • Love the packaging and the applicator.
  • No parabens!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cons of Bourjois Effet 3D Effect Lip Gloss in Shade 49 – Brun Rose Authentic:

  • Price may be on the higher side in India.
  • No ingredients listed.
  • Too tall claims, I don’t really know why they claim 8 hours and 3D effect!
  • Shades vary a lot from place to place. It is easier to identify these glosses by name than try to buying using shade numbers, so if you’re getting these from abroad, check for the name of the gloss rather than the shade number.


4.5 (0.5 for no ingredient list and for the talllll claim about 8 hours, but then, I guess companies can’t help the advertisement part by making tall claims).

Will I Buy It Again:

Of course, I am always ready to buy a nice gloss with no parabens.
