Bourjois So Delicate Lip Cream Rose Veloute Review, Swatch

Bourjois So Delicate Lip Cream (53 rose veloute)

Hi Friends

Before IMBB happened to me I wasn’t really into makeup, makeup was only restricted to few items and few brands but lately, after being exposed to so much here I wanted to experiment and that’s how I thought of trying Bourjois.

As the most loved item in my stash is always a lipstick so trying out a lipstick was obvious and when I particularly saw these I was sold!!!

My experience with the product

I loved the way they looked at Bourjois counter and I was smitten by the fact that they were not anything like a lipstick to me. Packaging was so different and I was actually on a look out for a nude lipstick that does not wash me out. When the SA swatched it at my hand I decided to take it.

It comes in a sleek-slim kind of tube. When I held it in my hand I feel like having a chocolate or gum in my hand. It’s super slim and doesn’t feel like lipstick. It also has a nice applicator; this is how the applicator & tube looks from side.

I have got 53 rose veloute shade this is a nude peach brown kind of shade. Fabulous for day wear and looks amazing with dark eyes. If someone loves peach this can be a good bet.

It’s a winner at this consideration; it’s decently pigmented and gives full colour in a single swipe. Even on my pigmented lips a very little product is required. It’s quite buildable.

It’s the highlight of the product I absolutely loved the texture when I applied it is very smooth and very easy to apply.

Very mild fragrance that’s just makes it presence felt like I am wearing something nice on my lips that too fades in a hour or so.

It’s here, where this lip cream stands out. On the applicator it’s smooth and creamy with decent shine but it dries out with matte finish (As claimed), which is so very sexy in a subtle way. I have worn it for a good no of times and then realised that it is quite deceptive.
Unfortunately the lipstick is drying and stands against the claim of 8 hrs hydration. I love it in the beginning and was jumping with joy but then I realised that, on me at least, it was very drying. As it has matte finish it gets into fine lines of my lips and it flakes!!! Literary I could see flakes of colour hanging and after 3-4 hours it even makes a film kind of thing on the inner portion of my lips which is so annoying. As this was a nude colour everything was very visible. I tried exfoliating my lips but that didn’t helped. I did not want to use gloss on it as it would have defeated the purpose of the whole matte finish.

Then I tried a lip balm underneath and that saved the thing. Quite surprisingly it didn’t even alter the staying power. I feel that it was a nude colour that may have aggravated the problem. Now I use this with a lip balm and it’s perfect.

Lasting Power

Lasting power is good and lips carry beautiful colour after 3-4 hours (but look good with a balm underneath)

This is how it looks on my lips-

Lip cream swatches


• Unique packaging.
• Gorgeous shade.
• Light on lips.
• Buildable.
• Smooth texture.
• Unique finish like a cream- not lipstick not gloss, its matte but does not look like matte lipstick.
• Last on lips for good amount of time.
• Fragrance free ( Well Almost).


• Drying.
• Settles into fine lines.
• Needs a balm to look good.
• After whole day wear lips do feel dry.
• Amazing shades available.
• Quantity is 6 ml but the tube feels empty, I mean the packaging is opaque and I can’t see how much it has and the applicator never comes engulfed with product. It even wasn’t packed so I am a little sceptic.
• Price- Rs.600/- is on expensive side.

Rating : 4/5


It’s very good beyond the drying part and the finish is unique so might give a try. If someone loves matte finish then- do try.
Will I buy it again

Yes, as balm has really solved my problem and I also want to give a fair chance to this with a deep colour & I am in love the 55 Fuchsia shades. So, next is that.
