Bourjois Color Boost Lip Crayon in Plum Russian Swatches

Apparently I am always late to the party, and the fact that I just recently picked up my first Bourjois lip crayon only comes to prove it. These little gems have been so hyped up for the past months that I just felt like a really bad beauty blogger for not giving them a whirl earlier. Well I fixed that mistake and now I am the proud owner of the shade Plum Russian, which let me just tell you – is brilliant!

Plum Russian is this absolutely beautiful deep reddish plum color, which is an ideal fall and winter shade. You all know that I love me a dark lip during the colder months so when I swatched this I was immediately sold. What I love about this shade is that it could be build up or down, depending on your preference. If I fancy more of a sheer wash of color I just dab the product lightly on my lips and I love the subtle hint of color it gives. It’s amazing that if you want to, you could go full on dark & vampy with this color as well (that’s what I do). The Color Boost crayons have gorgeous glossy finish (while don’t feel sticky at all) and the juiciness it adds to my lips is to die for.

Apart from the beautiful color that I just adore, Plum Russian has also incredible formula. The product is extremely moisturizing and feels super comfortable on my natural dry lips. Big thumbs up from me! It is also not heavy in the slightest and feels like a nice hydrating lip balm, which I love. The crayon is so creamy and soft, doesn’t accentuate dry patches and glides on the lips like charm. As I said, the pigmentation is great as well. Now Bourjois claim that the Color Boost lasts for about 10 hours, which sadly I will have to disagree with. The glossiness disappears around the 2-hour mark on me but that’s to be expected from such a glossy finish. However, Plum Russian does stain my lips for some good five hours, so it’s fine by me. The crayons also have SPF of 15. Score!

Bourjous have impressed me greatly this past year. They were launching fab products in a row and the Color Boost lip crayons were not an exception. Amazing formula (waaaay better than the Revlon ones in my opinion) and stunning shades – I really can’t fault them. I know one thing though – I will be definitely trying out their other shades and I think Peach On The Beach is a good start! :)

Have you tried the Bourjois Color Boost lip crayons? Which is your favorite shade?

  7. What I like most about this pen, except for the formula of course is that the plum shade is more red and berry than dark and vampy and I've worn it soo much this winter :o). Xx
