So I went thought this, ‘I’m not buying expensive make up anymore’ thing, and decided to have a look round my local Superdrug counter.
Drawn to Bourjois, I found these lovely lip glosses, Les Nudes and indulged in a few;
#33 Brun Poetic
#36 Fleur d’oranger poetic
#34 Rose Mythic
Brun Poetic is a true, cool nude beige, with silver shimmer. Fleur d’oranger is gorgeous, super shimmery brightening orange and Rose Mythic is a cool toned nude rose.
The colours all have quite a lot of shimmer and these colours are not WOW ones, since they are nudes. The applicator is pants, just like I remembered from whenI bought a Bourjois gloss aged 17, and there is that usual Bourjois scent.
I think the Brun Poetic is a great nude, but looks better with a base colour, as does Rose Mythic. Orange has more pizzaz (but it is very shimmery, so beware if you don’t like the metallic effect), and can hold its own.
These glosses were £6.25 each, which actually isn’t super cheap. They are a nice addition, but not an absolute essential.
