Advantages: Smells and tatses nice, good colour and coverage, nice packaging
Disadvantages: Wears off To Quickly
I really like Bourjois make up wanted a natural gloss for daytime wear and saw a spin of range from original Bourjois lip glosses called "Les Nudes." I chose "Rose Mythic" which is a pinky beige with a very subtle shimmer.
One of the best things about Bourjois is the packaging. It is very pretty an sort of antique looking in a way. When you look at the bottle straight on it has a shape that reminds me of a woman's body in that it has some curves to it. The lid is black with a button on top shwoing colour. This is fr display purposes and as the bottle is transparent you can see the colour here also.
I dont know about you but I hate lip glosses and lipsticks that smell and taste of 2old make up." Im happy to say though that this both smels and tastes really nice. It reminds me of Turkish Delight.
You get a brush attatched to the lid to apply it with. I prefer brushes to slanted sponge applicators as I find the product goes on lighter while still showing up enough on your lips. The brush is a good size. Not too thin and not to thick and allows a good coverage.
As I am quite pale wear a lot of light colours but sometimes these can be too light and make me look washed out. However although this is light it is not too light. It does show colour on your lips but its nice and natural. It gave my lips and full glossy look which I was very pleased with.
The main test for lip glosses and lipsticks is to test its staying power so I ate some spaghetti on toast for my dinner and checked my lips to se how may gloss had coped. Unfortunatley most had gone which was a shame as so far this lipgloss had been perfect. Saying that though it smells and tastes so nice I dont mind havingto reapply it a few times lol.
Summary: Overall a good gloss but needs more staying power.
