I recently spotted that Bourjois had released their offering of the popular 'chubby stick' style glossy lipsticks so i had to pick one up and see how it fared against the rest, i have tried and loved both the 'MUA Power Pout's' and the 'Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains' so my thoughts where, could Bourjois beat my love for them????
Firstly the packaging is pretty much identical to all the 'chubby stick' style crayons and has a twist up mechanism to get more product out, its really easy to use and not messy in the slightest. Their are 4 shades to choose from in Colour Boost range, they are... Peach on the Beach, Fuchsia Libre, Orange Punch and Red Sunrise. I opted for '02 Fuchsia Libre' a blue toned berry pink shade, the pigmentation is good, its not completely opaque nor is it sheer its just a nice glossy pop of colour. The formula is lovely, its light, creamy and moisturising and even when the glossy finish has worn off your lips it doesn't dry them out what so ever. I find that 'Fuschsai Libre' lasts around 3-4 hours before i need to reapply, and it fades out completely even without leaving you with product around your lips like lip liner, man i hate that. The colour boost crayons are also waterproof and have an SPF 15 in them which i think is fab as the colours in this range would definitely be great holiday/summer time colours.
Overall i do really like Bourjois' offering but they are extremely similar to other crayon style lipsticks on the market. I do think that even though there is only four shades in the collection so far, all shades are all extremely wearable and lovely.
Bourjois Color Boost Lip Crayons retail for £7.99 each and are available in Superdrug and Boots.
