New Lipstick Obsession - Bourjois Docteur Glamour

I was perusing the isles in Superdrug last week, and i came across this lipstick by Bourjois called "Docteur Glamour".
These lipsticks are promoted as an "Intensive Moisturising Treatment".


If like me, your lips suffer a lot during the colder months, and you find it harder to wear lipstick without your lips looking all flaky and dry, then something like this is an absolute dream. Not a lot of lipsticks I own are that moisturising so when I saw this, I immediately starting swatching the small collection of colours to find one I liked. Surprisingly, they had a gorgeous nude-pink (colour 11 - rose retabli) which had been tested right down to a little nub, unlike the other colours which remained almost untouched. This was obviously a popular colour.
The lipsticks contain mango & Shea butter so glide on so easily & really do look & feel moisturising.
I also picked up colour 13 which is an orangey toned pink..it was a mistake, I'll be honest haha, but i have grown to love it just as much.
The packaging is..well, it's okay. I wouldn't say it's all that special or "glamourous" but it does the job nicely. The lipstick also lasts a sufficient amount of time. Perfect for winter lips & I love the colour. It's a "my lips but better & slightly more nude & hydrated looking" shade.

RRP: £7.49

  4. Number 11 looks very pretty, from the picture it reminds me a little of Maybelline's Ambre Rose xx

  6. I actually like the packaging, it's more than o.k. for a drugstore brand!

    At least, its colour corresponds to the lipstick's shade, so you don't have to look at the label on the bottom ;)

  17. Bourjois is my favourite makeup brand - I just love it. I have lots of their little blusher pots and think these lipsticks would fit nicely into my makeup bag!

  18. I've always overlooked these lipsticks, the colours never looked that appealing for some reason. Seeing them here though they look really pretty, and sound perfect for this time of year.xXx

  21. Just incase anyone's interested, if you have a rummage through T J Hughes makeup section, there are loads of these (including colours i've not seen in Superdrug/Boots ec.) and also the Bourjois lip stains for around £1-2 it's worth a look if you're after trying out new colours in the range :)
