VIP Boudoir Competition….. {the results}

You might remember that myself and Lucy from Lucytakesphoto’s ran a Boudior competition recently and 2 lucky winners got a chance to have their hair and makeup done by myself and be photgraphed by Lucy who is an amazing Boudior Photographer! Check out her blog post for the results!

I’ve been dying to share with you the results of the competition Michelle from Kandigloss and I held last month, I’ve been busy editing everything and I’m really happy with the outcome.

Sit down, get a cup of tea and read on……

It was a pleasure to shoot the two girls who won , they were so lovely and really deserving of the prize. Thanks to the Osprey Hotel  we had the fabulous penthouse suite as our backdrop to the shoot, a lovely split level room so we both had plenty of space to work, there was a massive bath in the bedroom upstairs and a really cool swing seat downstairs, lovely light from the big patio doors and we were blessed with sunshine that day as well!

Here are some behind the scenes shots of the room and Michelle.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Review

I’ve been playing  with these gorgeous new lippies from Bourjois ever since I got three of them to try out recently.  They look like a lipgloss but act like a matte lipstick!  You apply directly with the doe foot applicator which helps to give a very precise finish so you don’t need to use a lipliner if you don’t want to.

All Colours

 

I found the finish to be creamy on first application but then it dries to a matte finish.   Bourjois claims that it doesn’t  transfer but I’m not sure about that! I did find that it transferred to my glass when I had a drink, however, it didn’t remove the product completely from my lips.  Your lips are left with a long lasting stain which DOESN’T BUDGE!  So I would definitely agree that this is a long lasting lip product that needs very little maintenance throughout the day.

The three colours I tried were, 05 Ole Flamingo which is a gorgeous fuschia pink colour. 04 Peach Club which is a really nice understated peach and 01 Personne ne Rouge which is a cherry red colour. I would say that before you apply these, it’s important that your lips are in good condition so give them a good scrub with your toothbrush and slap on some lip balm a while before applying and that’ll give you a nice smooth result 🙂

Swatches with no's

There are 8 colours in the range, so plenty to choose from.  They are available from Boots & Superdrug around mid-April and will cost €12.49.

What do you think?  Do you need these in your life?!  I know I will be picking up more of these colours, they are absolutely gorgeous and I got so many compliments wearing them 🙂
