By the way, I wish I had a top lip.

It’s safe to say the Bourjois Color Boost lip crayons were one of my favourite releases over the summer. In fact, I bought all 4 shades because I loved the formula and the colours. I immediately felt a berry shade was a must for autumn / winter and voila! Bourjois answered my prayers with two new shades – Plum Russian and Red Island. Naturally, both ended up in my basket!

Plum Russian is my favourite – the plummy, berry one – it’s a nice subtle and easy to wear darker done for the colder months. Personally, I wish it were a tad deeper but this is perfect for those who want to branch out into bolder shades but want something softer.

Red Island is a much bolder, truer red than the previous offering and would work really nicely as we approach the festive season. It’s the brighter of the new shades and has a slightly blueish tone to it.

I love the formula of these, they’re exactly the same as the original shades. Super glossy, smooth and fade to almost a stain. The wear time on these is a couple of hours but can be reapplied again without any issue.


Love these!

Love, Katie xo
