Time for lip glosses now! Lip glosses add sparkle to the face and glow to the face. While exploring lip glosses, when I read the word 3D, it appeared bit different and I had already heard about Bourjois 3D effect lip glosses so I thought to give them a try! I chose a darker shade this time as I already have shimmery and light shades. Shade 50 is ‘Brun Exotic’ which is a French word meaning exotic brown. This shade is exclusive from their summer collection. There are only two shades introduced in their summer collection:
49: Rose Pacific
50: Brun Exotic
The new Effet 3D lip gloss is perfect for those beautiful, hot summer days with SPF 15 solar filters and balm action for 8 hours of hydration.
Not only does it protect lips from UV rays but stops them from drying out.A special waterproof formula ensures it stays on when you least expect it – even when swimming & bathing.Available in 2 glistening shades with speckles of gold, you can be sure it will beautify your tan!Its addictive fragrance with hints of Tahitian monoi and coconut makes it a “summer must-have!” (From website)

My experience with Bourjois Effet 3D Effect Lip Gloss – Shade 50 Brun Exotic:
Bourjois 3D effect lip gloss comes in a transparent columnar stylish glass bottle with metallic cap. The curves of the bottle will definitely attract you. The head of the cap bears a little colour palate and shade no. The 3D effect lip gloss range is shimmery. The texture of gloss is very smooth. It glides very smoothly, neither too thick nor too thin on the lips. It hydrates the lips instantly and keeps them moistened even afterwards. The best part is it does not make lips sticky. It has a very mild fragrance. The applicator is very soft and it feels very smooth and efficient while using it. The good part of the gloss is that shimmery thing gets settle down slowly and does not look very loud. I chose it because I didn’t want a loud shimmery gloss this time. It gives a lustrous shiny sheen to the lips. As per company claims, it lasts for 8 hours. This is totally wrong. It does not lasts that long. It lasts for 3-4 hours only if you take coffee or tea in between. But it does not survive over meals. The claim of hydration is acceptable as it keeps the lips hydrated but up to 3-4 hours only. It does not make lips dry afterwards also. While fading it leaves a shimmery colour behind and even after the sheen on the lips can be noticed. It also claims itself waterproof which is true up to some extent as it does not fade with water that easily.
Pros of Bourjois Effet 3D Effect Lip Gloss in Shade 50 Brun Exotic:
• Attractive packing.
• Smooth applicator.
• Non sticky formula.
• Mild non-irritating fragrance.
• Hydrates the lips.
• Imparts a lustrous sheen to the lips.
• Make lips look plump.
• Protection from UV rays.
• Water proof up to some extent.
Cons of Bourjois Effet 3D Effect Lip Gloss in Shade 50 Brun Exotic:
• Price may be an issue.
• Does not live up to 8 hours claim.
• Contains paraben.
Will I repurchase/do I recommend Bourjois Effet 3D Effect Lip Gloss?
Yes, but don’t expect that much for staying power.
Hasta pronto amigas!
