Bourjois Rouge Edition in Fuschia Graffiti Review


You know when you're in a shop, or walking down the street, and you see someone wearing the most gorgeous hat/bag/lipstick, and suddenly you need that hat/bag/lipstick? This is what happened to me earlier in the week. Whilst having a peek at the beauty counters on a shopping trip, me and my sister spied a girl with the prettiest raspberry lips, and immediately wanted to know what she had on. It was a BareMinerals number I do believe, but I was sure I could find a similar shade in my collection. So, off I toddled home and low and behold, I found the perfect glossy raspberry shade, sitting there gathering dust amongst my other lippies.

Let's face it - we all do it. We buy so many different items of makeup that there are those absolute gems that we forget about. In my most recent case, my long-forgetten lippy was Bourjois' Rouge Edition Lipstick in Fuchsia Graffiti. I've had this resting among my makeup for absolutely ages now, but amongst the usual nudes or ultra-brights that I like to wear, it lay forgotten. However, I'm so glad that I dug it out as I have fallen head over heels in love with this beautiful shade. 

The perfect bold fuchsia-raspberry hue, this lipstick is ultra glossy, super pigmented and a total treat to wear. It's extremely moisturising, goes on like a dream and stays on surprisingly well. I don't have too much experience with Bourjois' lippies but I definitely feel this could be the start of a wonderful love affair. I love how this lipstick looks against my pale skin, and will be wearing it on a regular basis from now on. 

Do you have any long-lost makeup items that you recently reignited your love for?

  2. I love Bourjois, but strangely I've never picked up one of their lip products. I'm not 100% sure on this shade for me, but I'll definitely look out for others!

  3. I picked up one in a colour that didn't suit me at all! Horrible but looked beautiful on other people, definitely need to try the testers!

  5. Oh the shade looks really pretty on you!:) I also like such "magentha/fuchsia pink - pinkish" shades and think that these pink colors aren't just for Spring and Summer - you can wear it durin' winter or autumn as well - if you need a bit color fresh-up!

    Wish you a wonderful weekend/or Sunday!:)

    Bye,
