Bourjois Color Boost

When Clinique launched their Chubby Sticks, there was an surge in launch of similar products by drugstore brands. Some excelled in their value for money and some had exceptional pigmentation.

Correct me if I am wrong, but Bourjois is the last brand to launch a “lipstick crayon”. The wait was definitely worth it because its one of the best out there. They have named it as Colour Boost and have released only 4 shades.

• Red Sunrise
• Fuschia Libre
• Peach On the Beach
• Orange Punch

I picked “Orange Punch” during one of my innumerable trips to Priceline. I couldn’t wait to wear it, so there is no product photo for it.

Bourjois Orange Punch Color Boost Product Swatch

It’s a more of coral than orange on my pigmented lips. The pigmentation of the “lipstick crayon” is quite good( but it’s not opaque in one swipe) and staying power is also good. The formula is non-drying and has shine to it. It feels extremely light on lips, almost as if it has melted giving that incredible juicy colour.

Have you tried any of the Color Boost? What are your thoughts on them? Personally, I can’t wait to pick more colours.


I think I shop too much..

Okay, please don’t think that I am bragging about all the shopping I have done. I am doing this post more in an attempt to keep a check on my lemmings and their conversion to quick depleting bank balance. It seems ( in fact it is true) that I have got an insatiable desire for shopping and I feel I need every product which is raved about.
And somehow I find ways to rationalise the shopping also.

So, I have decided to do posts on whatever I have shopped in a month and then view it before buying any more.
I will also do post on any slip ups…its more like putting myself out there to be corrected.

I personally think, it would help me, if I can see  my previous shopping ( and not think in my head, that I haven’t bought anything for long) before doing any more.
Again, please don’t mistake this as bragging, I am really try to fix something here.

Here, is all the shopping I have done in month of June till now.
