Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Laque: It’s really not what you expected

By now you’ve already heard about the hype, knew what was the hype and you might be one of the lucky 200 users to be a part of the hype. That’s right. Bourjois Malaysia did something that blew my mind completely. This well-known French cosmetic brand decided to give away 200 units of the new Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Laque to 200 lucky fans who submitted their details through Bourjois Malaysia Facebook page in conjunction with the new release.

It’s not hard to gauge what exactly is Rouge Edition Aqua Laque. It comes in a short dainty tube just like it’s sister, Rouge Edition Velvet, which is my most used lip product at the moment due to it’s long lasting. When ‘laque’ is added to the name, one would automatically expect something that is high shine or glossy. Just take a look at the shiny top cap. Okay, I’m not going to mess up your mind further. This Rouge Edition Aqua Laque is a hybrid lip product of lip gloss and lipstick 🙂

The care package that I received contain a set of three carefully selected Rouge Edition Aqua Laque. There is 02 Rosé On The Rocks, which is a rose nude shade, 04 Viens Si Tu Roses, which is a raspberry shade and 06 Feeling Reddy, which is a bright peachy red shade. Overall, I got three different shades from three different shade category with three different intensity. Ain’t that thoughtful? 😉

Bourjois Smoky Stories 06 Upside Brown: Now everyone can be a makeup artist!

Have you watch all the Bourjois Smoky Stories Quad Eyeshadow Palette series on Bourjois YouTube channel? I have and I was sold the minute I watch the first video. One particular palette that I fell deep in love is the 06 Upside Brown. Bourjois Malaysia kindly gave me a palette to try but the shade that I got was different. Sneaky me requested for a change because I knew 06 Upside Brown would suit my daily makeup style than other colors.

Now. What’s so special about this new quad palette if you may ask? It’s an eyeshadow palette with pre-coordinate shades. What that means is Bourjois think hard and long to put together all 4-shades in each palette so that each of us can channel out the makeup artist in us with the help of this palette 😀

Bourjois Silk Edition Compact Powder: Gives me amazing matte finishing all day everyday

Powder is my all-time addiction. For the past 10 years, I’ve been living on just powder foundation and it has been working out well for me. I may have pick up the habit of using liquid foundation these days but I still set my foundation with a powder. Till this day I still have the tendency to keep buying and buying without realizing I have too much at home and I needed to stop pilling up the stock. Whenever a brand came out with a new collection, powder is the first item I would check out. So when Bourjois Malaysia’s been posting up about their new Silk Edition Compact Powder, the name ‘silk’ alone is already enough to intrigued me. Introducing Bourjois Silk Edition Compact Powder, as soft and as fine as silk, as melting as a cream. This is the powder to have if you want convenient, coverage, long lasting and all-day oil control. That’s right. ALL-DAY OIL CONTROL.

First thing first, the unique 360º rotating mirror. How interesting can it gets? I’m easily distracted with anything that is cool and new as this. When I first got it I couldn’t stop playing with it. It makes a great handbag mirror as the mirror stands up well and easily rotated to any direction that I want.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet: It has everything you want for a matte lipstick

When it comes to lipstick or any forms of lipstick at all, my go-to has always been matte lipstick. Matte finish lipstick is my absolute weakness. However, having a dry and wrinkly lip makes any matte lipstick application and finishing a challenge. But I still love it. The trick is to have a well-moisturized lips. What about IF I am too lazy for all the prep work and just want to have a matte lipstick to work on my lips? I can name you several matte lipstick that I personally find good but there is one that is a game changer. Introducing Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet.

When Bourjois opened its first kiosk in Sunway Pyramid back in June 2014, I made my round and was looking for Rouge Edition Velvet in particular. I was of course introduced to Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick (one of their top 3 product) and since I wasn’t into normal lipstick, I decided to wait for the matte version instead.

3 easy steps everyday makeup with Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream, 123 Perfect CC Eye Cream and Volume 1 Seconde Mascara Waterproof

Undeniably, the beauty industry in our country is blooming slowly but healthily over the past two years with the introduction of various international brands into our market. Everyone I cross path with on the street are majority with makeup on. However (I think I had a culture shock recently) I also learnt that not everyone will put on a proper makeup to work, as opposed to when we met, with proper dressing and makeup. I was in shock when I hear that. I felt like the person whispering “I don’t put makeup to work” is like a double agent. Are you the same too? Because if you are, good. I have the perfect 3 easy step everyday makeup for you that only require you to use three products, and that is Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream, 123 Perfect CC Eye Cream and Volume 1 Seconde Mascara Waterproof.

Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream, 123 Perfect CC Eye Cream and Volume 1 Seconde Mascara Waterproof is also the product focus for the month of September whereas Bourjois had a limited time offer recently on all three products, which sadly ended on 24th September. I had the products just a few days ago and I just cannot simply post up a review without a proper test run. That explains why I couldn’t post the review up before the 24th September. But no worries, I’m sure Bourjois will come up with a different promotion after this so keep your eyes on their Facebook page ya 😀

Last week I took some time off and drove all the way there to be a part of this new excitement. It was a weekday so the crowd was not excessively huge that I’m afraid I will interrupt the kiosk daily sales operation. I was able to roam around the kiosk, taking my sweet time with photos and swatching some of the products that I was intrigued with. This will be a picture heavy blogpost with lesser words from me 😀
