Another day, another lipstick crayon from another brand! This time it’s from Bourjois:
Does that make every brand with a lip crayon thingy yet? SEE what you started Clinique? See?
Bourjois Color Boost Glossy Finish Lipstick…Crayon($18 CDN) is supposed to be different from ALL the other lipstick crayon thingys out there, primarily because it’s SUPPOSED to have SPF 15 in it. But I don’t know if these ones in Canada actually have SPF15, because the spot where the SPF is written on is covered by a sliver stripe-see it there under the 10 hour wear claim?
SO. What does that mean??? I think Bourjois sneakily covered the SPF 15 so that they could sell it here in Canada faster. Canada is a real drag when it comes to clearing makeup with SPF for sale, so yeah that’s my theory. I could be wrong, and often am in life, but my beauty blogging senses are tingling folks. Nice job Bourjois! I like the way you work!
Peach At The Beach is the shade I chose because of the name. I like peaches. I like the beach. I like peaches at the beach! It’s such a pretty bright peachy coral!! The formula of Bourjois Color Boost Glossy Finish Lipstick…Crayons are really silky smooth and glossy. One swipe gives you a sheer finish, but add a couple of extra swipes and you can build this lippie up in pigmentation really well:
The glossy formula of Bourjois Color Boost Glossy Finish Lipstick makes your lips really glow! Smooth, and not sticky at all, the formula is supposed to be weightless and I say yup! It feels like a really wet and moisturizing lip balm when you first put it on. It’s supposed to be waterproof, but I don’t think so. It couldn’t handle my piece of leftover pizza for lunch, although I could still see a bit of it after I ate to tell you the truth. It does have a bit of a staining effect, so as the glossiness wears off, you are left with some colour on your lips. But the glossy does last a good while though! I get a good 3 hours of wear, and the whole time it feels good on. And the 10 hours of moisture it claims to give is pretty spot on-my lips still feel soft hours later. Oh and these are a twist-up pencil too, so no sharpening needed!
I’m assuming that Bourjois Color Boost Glossy Finish Lipsticks are pretty much what those Clinique Chubby Sticks are like. Believe it or not, I’ve NEVER tried one of those, because the names are just….blechhhhh. NO LIKEY. I’m sure they’re nice enough and I still think about getting one, but honestly none of the shades really speak to me. But name something Peach At The Beach-I hear it haha!
You can find Bourjois Color Boost Glossy Finish Lipsticks at your local Shoppers Drug Mart right now! There are 2 other shades to choose from-a bright fuchsia pink and a bright orange!
Whaddaya think of maybe sneaky Bourjois? And does that make every brand with a lip crayon thingy yet? I’m trying to think of one without, and I all I can come up with is Chanel. Dior finally did it this year too so it’s probably coming. And since Bourjois OWNS Chanel, I think this might be a preview. 🙂
