Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet vs Aqua ♡

Hi everyone! Sorry i've been gone for a little while - things have been a little in the air with me recently but im back now and i am so excited to be blogging again :)

So its no secret that the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvets fast became a cult drug store favourite - the formula is super smooth and applies effortlessly and not to mention the staying power of these beauties is amazing! You can read a review i did here

The Aqua Laque didn't seem to have the same buzz about them - i dont know if thats just me but i rarely hear people raving about these or see them in peoples favourites. However if your not a big fan of matte lips and prefer something super glossy then this would be right up your street. 
I must admit it does feel a little strange when first applying because if feels really wet and a little cold. The colour range that is available in this formula isn't as vast as the Velvet editions but they have 8 shades ranging from nudes to pink to reds so there should be something for everyone. 

Personally i much prefer the Velvet editions but i do love a matte lip and for me with a lipstick staying power is a must - aint no body got time to top up their lipstick ever hour or so! 

Which one is your favourite?

Max Factor Creme Puff Blush - Lovely Pink ♡

There has been a lot of hype around these Max Factor Creme Puff Blushes because they are such a great dupe for the Hour Glass Ambient Blushes - now i have never tried the Hour Glass Version so i can't really put my two pence in about that but the Max Factor Creme Puff Blush are truly stunning! 

I have this in Lovely Pink which is a beautiful pale pink, with a golden shimmer, which makes it perfect for a blush highlight. Max Factor designed these blushes making a perfect shade for each skin tone, Lovely pink is designed for paler skin but honestly i think all the blushes will look lovely every skin tone, I really want to try Gorgeous Berries, which is a beautiful plumy shade. 

The Creme Puff Blushes are baked which gives them phenomenal staying power and man are they pigmented! 

Like i said i haven't tried the Hour Glass comparison and as much as i want to these Max Factor ones are only £8.99 and one of the best high street blushes i have every tried! So for now these will do me perfectly! 

Have you tried the Max Factor Creme Puff Blushes yet?

Bourjois Aqua Laque - Babe Idol ♡

Since the release of the ever so popular Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet liquid lipstick, Bourjois have launched something for those who like a little more shine to the lips.

The Aqua Laque, the packaging and the applicator is the same as the velvet versions, so the doe foot applicator make it super easy to apply an even amount of product all over the lips. 

The main difference for me between the Velvet and Aqua editions apart from the obvious ones matte and the other is glossy! is the staying power, the velvet ones stain your lip and make the colour last all day and this one you will probably find it will need topping up every few hours! The colour however is very build able so if you fancied a little hint or pop of colour you could just keep on of these to hand for both! 

It does feel super moisturising when applied to the lip, so if your having a dry lip day this would be perfect, the formula feels like water on the lips and feels oddly cold!

Its available in 8 shades ranging from nudes to bright reds to pinks and plums so there is sure to be a colour there for you!

Babe Idol - is a very soft pink which will look lovely for spring and summer and like i mentioned it really easy to build up the colour and make that more brighter!
