Bourjois Sweet Kisses Lipstick - Rose Seduisant

You know when you find your "perfect" lipstick, when the formula, the packaging the colour and the wear all come together?  This lipstick, for me, is one of those.  


I recently wore a bright red lipstick and whilst the orangey bright red I wore I didn't love I did really like how glam a red coloured lip made me feel.  I had my heart set on a dark vampy red, but decided that it would just be unwearable and was lurking around in Boots admiring the packaging of the Bourjois lipsticks when I spotted this shade which is I guess a berry pink shade in the bullet but on my lips looks quite red without being over the top.
What Bourjois say about it:

Bourjois Sweet Kisses Lipstick dress your smile in intense radiant colour thanks to the unique complex of waxes and oils which coats the pigments for ultra luminosity. Voila! A luminous satin finish in one stroke!
A new generation of gliding formula, plus a selection of fine and infinitely light oils, which offer maximum comfort upon application. Argan oil gives upto 8 hours moisturisation for ultra kissable lips.
A true beauty accessory!

Years ago I had a Lancome lipstick in this sort of shade and I loved it.  What I really like about this is how comfortable it is to wear, all those oils really do seem to help prevent my lips drying out and I love the satin finish, bit of sheen without a heap of shine!  I have been wearing it with a bobbi brown pencil to prevent bleeding and then applying it with a brush for a really neat application - its not the sort of colour I would want to smear all over the place!  Although it does work nicely if I just pat a little on for a less "done" look as well.
In shade
In sunlight - this is very colour accurate
I feel this really brightens up my face and love that it feels really comfortable on.  It has no real taste or smell and I like that too. 

The 2 above were a rush job when I got in from shopping as was dying to try this!

This one I made a bit more effort for - including the taupe and grey from the Ruby & Millie quad!

The packaging is great too, although it took Em and I a while to work out how to get into it! You push down the silver button and the lipstick comes completely out of the purple case and then slots back in with a satisfying click, very novel and more importantly very secure.

You can buy it from Boots here for £7.99, I will definitely be going back for more.
