Happy Saturday! A while ago I did a post about my current makeup routine and in this post I promised to do a review on the Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Laque in the shade ‘04 Viens si tu roses’ I bought it about two months ago because I was on the hunt for the perfect rosy lip color for summer. Even though I wasn’t sure whether I was going to like how glossy it was I decided to buy it anyway because I instantly fell in love with the color.
This lip lacquer is supposed to be as light as water and should be super comfortable to wear. When I applied it for the first time I was pleasantly surprised. It really felt like it put water on my lips, my lips where very dry so this was just what I needed. I can’t really describe the feeling but it just feels great on your lips, very light, soothing and not sticky at all. Not only does it feel like water but it also kind of looks like water once you applied it. It’s super shiny and it doesn’t give a full coverage but that’s what makes it great for summer. Because of this thin consistency it doesn’t stay on that long and it can be quite tricky to apply but the pretty color absolutely makes up for that.
First of all I want to share my amazement that I almost have 50 followers on my blog. And I actually have visitors on Hi I Am Cherry every day, can you believe that? I only started this blog about a month ago and I never thought I would get any followers. I can’t believe that people read my posts (which are undoubtedly full with spelling mistakes). So if you are reading this, thank you, you’re the best!
Yesterday I went shopping with my sisters and my mom. It was an amazing day. We all got into that kind of flow where you buy everything you try on and I guarantee you, that results in the best shopping trips. One of the things I bought is the Bourjois Color Edition 24h cream shadow in the color Pétale de Glace. I’ve had my eye on this color for quite a while now and when I swatched it yesterday I didn’t doubt for a moment and bought it.
Pétale de Glace is a light pink metallic color. The packaging says it is a cream to powder formula. It is a creamy texture that turns into powder when you apply it on your eyelid. It applies very easily (especially when you use your fingers) and the cream shadow is very pigmented.
I went out last night and I wore Pétale de Glace. When I came home I was quite surprised that the color didn’t fade at all. And on top of that, the eyeshadow doesn’t crease so I was very happy. Sometimes when I come home after a night out I look like the Joker so I was very happy that this time at least my eyeshadow still looked good when I came home. The packaging says it lasts up to 24 hours, I don’t know when you want to wear eyeshadow for 24 hours and I also don’t know if it lasts this long but it does last much longer than I expected.
