Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick in Shade #05 (Brun Boheme)

Hey all…I am back with a review on one of my favorite lipstick off late.

Its the Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick in Shade # 05, also called ‘Brun Boheme’.


Though I have seen various online reviews/swatches of this lipstick, have myself posted swatches of 10 Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipsticks, I fell in love with this when I personally saw this lippie on Renji of Makeupholic World.

Price: INR 955 (These were launched initially for INR 775 before hike)

What the product claims:

It’s ready to wear formula is enriched with ΒΌ of pure laque for a radiant, glossy end and orchid blossom wring so it glides onto the lips leave-taking them feeling smooth, hydrated and confined for up to 10 hours.

The packaging reminds me of MUFE/Maxfactor/Faces Moisture Rich ones – a matte black cap with Rouge Edition printed on it & a transparent bottom to show up the lipstick shade. The lipstick number is also printed in the transparent bottom.

The way I see it:

This is a unique shade (atleast!) in my makeup stash. This is a different shade from the usual pinks & reds we opt for most of the times.

This also happens to be my second Bourjois Lipstick (first being the Bourjois Color Boost Lip Crayon in Red SunriseΒ )& I can’t tell you how much happy I am with my choice of shade & the quality the product has to offer. One could think they would buy a MAC instead with 35 bucks more, but you have to use this lippie to decide upon it!

The bullet goes over smoothly on the lips, being creamy & pigmented. The shape of the bullet is also ideal to be applied in the corner of the lips & on your cupid bow.

The shade looks quite darker in the bullet – you could almost take it for a brown one! But the actual shade on the lips come totally different – a glossy, peachy rust with a little bit of coral & red too.

It goes on evenly in the lips & fades out evenly too.

This does not settle into fine lines nor highlight them too. Two swipes are good enough to cover up pigmented lips.

It stays put easily for 4 hrs. on me with light meals or drinks & leaves a strong coral tint on my lips that seems to last quite long.

The fragrance is a very mild, sweet one & fades quickly.

It does not bleed inspite of being creamy or moisturising, but it does transfer!

Here is how it looks on me –



Topped with a clear lip gloss….

I would strongly recommend this lipstick considering all the above factors & mainly for the beautiful shade it is & its staying potential! πŸ˜€

This shade would suit everybody.. from fair to the dusky ones!

This is my go-to lipsticks these days, since I totally love the shade! πŸ™‚
