Bourjois Paris Rouge Edition Aqua Lacqu ($16) is a hydrating lipgloss available in eight shade selections that promise up to 10 hours of moisture.
Let’s take a look!
Bourjois Paris Rouge Edition Aqua Lacqu comes housed in a chubby square barrel that holds 0.2 oz of gloss. At a glance I thought the packaging kinda looked like a liquid lipstick of sorts and the pigment sure does mimic one but this is all gloss.
I wouldn’t say it provides 10 hours of moisture as the wear time is a little short on this gloss but during the three hour wear period it felt quite hydrating and lovely, like a cool glass of water for my lips. The formula is very watery and thin but applies beautifully with full opaque color from the shade I purchased. It applies easily on lips and doesn’t accentuate drier areas. The finish is smooth almost lacquer-like in finish and has a very light, weightless feel. I kinda felt like I was applying water to my lips during the application but don’t let that discourage as the formula isn’t one that migrates even though it is thinner. This does have a light perfume taste and flavor for sensitive users.

For me, this is a perfect gloss with a minor quirk that it wears for about three hours but I don’t mind because during that wear I never felt the formula was sticky, tacky, or heavy. It feels very soothing and comfortable on lips. I’m also quite impressed with the excellent pigmentation.
I purchased only a single shade and I must admit I regret that and will redeem that shortly as I really enjoy this formula.
If you’re looking for a highly pigmented, shiny lipgloss that’s lightweight and quite hydrating, I’m pretty sure you’ll love Bourjois Paris Rouge Edition Aqua Lacqu!
