My Experience with Bourjois La Creme Softly Tinted Lip Cream Rose Voluptueux:
So I got this one, months back while shopping online on some discount. Moving to the packaging, it comes in a basic tube packaging. The tube itself is transparent with a screw up lid and aslant tip applicator; you get the product out by squeezing it. All in all really basic and nothing extraordinary. It comes in some 6-7 shades, as I far as I know and the shade I have is rose voluptueux, I don’t know why it is named so as the color does not look like that to me!
As the name suggests it is a soft tinted lip cream. And the color is a light peachy nude shade, with lots of micro shimmer in it; the shimmer can be a pro as well as a con. The shade on its own will wash out medium to dusky skin tones; it looks decent when paired with heavy eye makeup. Lighter skin tones, can carry it on its own. Now the shimmer gives a lovely dimensional effect to lips and does not look over the top in any manner, and also makes lips look pouted, as it is not at all large or chunky but just gives a subtle sheen.
The texture is decent, it has the slightest amount of stickiness, which you can barely feel but it also helps in making it last longer. It is quite opaque, thick and creamy in texture, and will be able to cover pigmented lips easily in a single layer. You do not need to use a lip balm for dry lips underneathas it is quite moisturizing onits own. It has very light fragrance, but you can only feel it during application. The applicator applies the product evenly on lips, and you do not need to use anything separately. It does not exactly feel weightless on lips, but at the same time does not feel heavy or uncomfortable as well.Because it is a tinted cream, it can also be used on top of lip liners, and lipsticks. It kind of changes the look of matte lipsticks. It works well with layering and does not go patchy at all.You can expect it to last for a good three hours on its own and when layered with abase; it lasts for little longer and does leave behind a soft tint while fading. As it is quite moisturizing it does not settle into fine lines on lips.All in all a pretty decent product, it is not really a must try in my opinion and you can skip it.
Pros of Bourjois La Creme Softly tinted lip cream rose voluptueux:
• Can be used alone, or on top of a base
• Has very minute subtle shimmers which give a dimensional look to lips

In the swatches on left I have applied it on its own, and on right over a matte red lipstick!
