Bourjois Rouge Edition 11 Fraise Remixsobota, november 03, 2012
My eye went immediately to the shade number 11 Fraise Remix, which is exactly the shade I've been looking for for about a year now. Most corals turn orange on me because I'm so pale (NC15, HM 51), but this one is the perfect mix of red and orange with pink. This is the colour I wanted Maybelline's Coral Pop to be. It is very pigmented, creamy and soft, probably one of the best formulas in drugstore lipsticks. It doesn't dry out my lips, nor does it settle in lines. The lasting power is amazing. It was still strong after 6 hours that is including drinking and eating which it survived with minimal fading. It fades evenly and even leaves a nice stain.
The price, though, is really high for a drugstore lipstick. It retails for 10.95 € in Müller which is definitely not cheap (even their foundations are 14€!), but it is great quality that I believe can match with some high end brands.
11 Fraise Remix is a gorgeous coral shade, but do keep in mind that if you are darker than me, chances are it will be a lot lighter and probably pinker on you.
Thanks for reading!
