Bourjois Sweet Kiss Shine Lipstick in 70 Framboise Petillant

Now I'm going to be honest, I only picked up this product because of the different packaging.
Anyhow this soo called 'different packaging' doesn't make using lipstick any easier.  It works by pushing up the button on the outer case and the lipstick becomes loose, then you just twist up the inner tube like how you normally would use a lipstick. A ordinary lid would be faster!
I guess the only practicalness would be if you were the type that always loses their lipstick lid in their handbag. This would be much more reliable as it's locked in the casing. 

Going on to the inside product, it really does remind me of the 17 Mirror Shine lipsticks which you can see my review here. This one 'Framboise Petillant' is sheer and shiny but slightly better. 
The colour reminds me of glistening pink water. The texture is very moisturising and light, but it does have a heavy perfume scent like most Bourjois lipsticks do which could be bad for those with sensitivity to fragrance. Mind you I myself do like the scent, which fortunately is tasteless, if that helps. :)

Longevity isn't that good to be honest, it would be rare for it to last for an hour without drinking or eating. 

Overall I think it's a nice novelty lipstick but not the greatest, and it isn't the worst either. 

This will set you back at around £7.99

  1. Omg can I have your gorgeous lips??? lol ! Beautiful color! :) It looks so shiny! :)

  2. I've only used Bourjois blush. I like them, but I agree with you about the smell. It's not a bad smell, but some people are sensitive to fragrances. Some mascaras even have fragrance in them. That's crazy.

  3. Hmm, I fine the Bourjois products pretty hit and miss so I'd probably avoid this, although the colour actually looks really lovely on you :)

  4. This is gorgeous on you, but that packaging is just silly! I always try the testers instore and can never work it properly XD
