Snap Review: Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Liquid Lipstick in Cool Brown


Hi everyone!

This is going to be a snap review, because I already have a very long post praising this range, linked here. Cool Brown was on my list to buy so this is a small addition to the swatches in the other post.

Cool Brown really, really, disappointed me. You can see why just by looking at the swatches below.


As a brand, Bourjois tends to shy away from darker nudes in their lip ranges. I’m not sure why, knowing this, I picked this up thinking it was going to be like NYX’s Soft Spoken. I think something in me hoped that Bourjois was introducing something new.

As you can see, the pigmentation of the colour pales in comparison to Beau Brun, my favourite of the Rouge Edition Velvet Lip range, and on my lips, you can’t tell it’s there, colourwise. Not much more to say besides that!

I really wouldn’t recommend this particular colour from the range, but there are other colours that are totally worth the money, so don’t dismiss the whole range based on this review!

Until next time,
