Bourjois Paris Rouge Edition Aqua Lacqu

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!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I want this. I don’t see that shade on the website, though. I’m guessing it’s sold out for the moment?

    Gorgeous color! I wish they’d return Bourjois to this country.

      they are! 🙂 Coty brought it out so this could mean it will be at drugstores!

  • Renu

    I love the Rouge Edition Velvet matte lippies, so I didn’t expect to like these, but I do! Have you tried the shade Viens Si Tu Roses? It is so pretty and wearable!
