Since I am already a big fan of the original Roueg Edition Velvet liquid lipsticks from Bourjois I was intrigued to see the new Souffle version. I couldn’t imagine a sheer version of a matte lip, it seemed totally mad and truth be told I wasn’t totally in to the idea but I had to pick one up to review. The texture of the product is much the same as the original, very smooth and siliconey however if you can imagine a clear version then this is somewhere between that and original. Translucent and not entirely even, like a stain but more comfortable, it doesn’t wear away as nicely as it’s sibling but I can see a place for it.
I’m not sure I’d run out and buy another but it’s an interesting take on the current liquid lipstick trend. I like the frosted packaging and the general concept but everything I love about a liquid lipstick is diluted when you take out the bold pigmented finish so I think it’s a miss for me. If you’re in to liquid lipsticks I just posted a Wear + Compare with 5 low cost options, showing you they last throughout the day and ending with a comparison of all 5, check it out!
