Bourjois | Aqua Laque Lipstick

Bourjois Aqua Laque Lipstick - Appechissant, Babe Idole












When the Aqua Laque lipsticks were first announced, I didn't think they'd take over my love for Velvets but now I have to admit, they have made a permanent place in my beauty stash. I must give credit to the Bourjois team for coming up with amazing products in the past few years, I haven't found any that I have really disliked to be honest.

Coming back to these lipsticks, the shades that are introduced here in the Middle East are 01 to 08 ranging from peachy nudes to bright bold reds. I realized recently that I have way too many reds and I hardly wear a bold red lip anyway so I steered clear of the brighter shades. However I picked a couple of gorgeous day-wear shades that are bound to appeal to everyone.

First up is 01 Appechissant, a beautiful peachy nude color with the mildest pink hints. This would be more or less an MLBB shade for many. This is perfect for office wear. Next, and possibly my favorite pink ever (and I don't like pinks usually) is 08 Babe idole that is a sweetheart baby-pink shade. It is great to pair on beach picnics and anything informal as such. 

Both shades have medium opacity and the only downside is that they aren't as pigmented as Velvets but then its unfair to compare them as they are both so very different. The packaging is alike for both though, but these have glossy matching caps. The formula of these colors is cool to the touch and gel-like. Also, it takes time to evenly distribute the color on the lips. They are extremely hydrating but the glossy finish wears off after a while leaving behind a soft tint. The colors I have picked are subtle so they are easy to use during the day without the need of a mirror. 

I love these already and would probably snap up the rosy shade 02 Rose on the rocks soon, that's gotten my fancy. These lipsticks are available across all Boots and Lifestyle stores in Kuwait, priced at KWD 6.000 each.
