Many of you must have heard an old song; “Paankhaayesaiyaanhamaaro, Saawarisuratiyahothlallal…..”. You must be wondering why I am asking you this. Well, today’s product reminds me of that song. You might remember the old style Hollywood and Indian Cinema, where the actresses (as well as some actors) used to have a beautiful lip stain on their lips. I still remember Mughul-e-Azam, which when re-released in color form, showed off Madhubala’s beauty and her supple, delicious lips. I often wondered what they used in those days. Was it a lipstick, or some type of Lip Paint…which showed off so well in Eastmancolor.Ahhh well…those were the olden Goldies. But, I think, Bourjois has finally managed to recapture at least some of the essence of those olden times, by introducing this new line of Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks. I am reviewing the shade Peach Club from this line today.

My experience with Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick – Peach Club
I personally feel that there is a very thin line separating peach from coral color. While applying a peach color, if you go overboard, it may easily look corallish. The same is the case scenario with this lipstick. The color Peach Club, is an extremely pretty and sober peach color. But if you apply it with a bold hand or apply multiple swipes, it may easily look coral, or even orange on your lips.
The formula of this line is excellent. The lipstick comes in a square tube, with a lid which corresponds to the shade inside. The color of the shade is also mentioned on the tube. This is provided by a doe-foot sponge applicator for easy and precise application.
The color is very pigmented. The formula is excellent, and has a cushiony feel to it. It glides easily over the lips without any tugging. It does not settle into any lip lines or exaggerate them. One swipe will appear a bit streaky, which can be remedied either with your fingers (for a day time look), or with another swipe(for a more glam look). It looks and feels shiny and moisturising at first and may transfer on glasses. But give it around 10-15 minutes, and it settles into a powdery, matte, soft, light and most sober peach to orange color you might have ever encountered. It becomes completely transfer resistant, and feels very light on the lips.
It does not dry out the lips. You may apply it on chapped lips, and it will still look pretty ;( but being a matte lipstick, I would recommend to exfoliate and moisture your lips before application). It stays intact for many hours (I have tested this one for 8 hours, with breakfast, lunch and some snacks in between), with dulling of the shine and some fading (though it fades evenly). It can be removed with any makeup remover, but not with water only. This one has more of the chemical like smell which was less noticeable with Frambourjoise. However, the smell disappears after application, and does not bother me much.
In terms of staying power, I found it to be less long lasting than Frambourjoise (Maybe because that one is a bolder shade). You can reapply it any time, without ever going overboard with this shade. This is a very sober shade, and will look good on everyone, in every occasion, during any time of the day. This shade is indeed a must have.
