The New Release: Bourjois Colour Boost in 'peach on the beach'

Unless you've been hiding under a make up less rock (god forbid) for the past few weeks then you'll already know about this little colourful gem of a new release courtesy of Bourjois. When I first heard about these new Color Boost Lip Crayons I actually thought, 'oh dear Bourjois you're a bit late on the lip crayon bandwagon', but a couple of weeks, some tempting blog posts and an irresistible 3 for 2 deal later I found 'peach on the beach' had been added to my ever growing lip product collection. But c'mon with a name like that who can blame me?

At first sight this product seems exactly the same as all the other Clinique Chubby Stick dupes, but there are definitely a few things which make this stand out from the lip crayon crowd. Firstly, the colour. Lighter summery shades are something even my beloved Revlon Kissable Balm Stains haven't done well but 'peach on the beach' is the most gorgeous candy pink with peachy coral undertones, brighter than a nude but still very wearable. The other three shades available are just as lovely, but naturally my peach addiction led me to get this one...I'm signing up to peachy lip product anonymous next week I promise. Secondly, the finish is super glossy (but not 'ohh hellooo hairy lip in the wind' sticky) and you can see from the swatch above how much shine it gives. This much shine in a product with great pigmentation is quite an achievement and it also gives the bullet moisturising properties that make it glide on and feel so light and comfortable on the lips. With this glossy finish you might expect quite poor staying power and it's true that this doesn't have the 10 hour waterproof stay as promised but I do find that if you layer this on in the morning it'll still be there after lunch, even if the shine has gone down. With the added bonus of SPF 15, a reasonable £7.99 price tag and the usual 'I can apply this without looking' perk of the lip crayon form, I just can't fault the Colour Boost. brb, off to Boots to snap up the rest...

I've pretty much just been working and career hunting for the past couple of days but tomorrow night I'm going to London for the weekend to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory the musical and hopefully visit the blogger's favourite 'Breakfast Club' with my boyfriend. Then on Monday I've planned to meet up with some of my uni besties for lunch in central so I'm ridiculously excited for all that. If you want to follow my little London adventure then I'll be posting lots of photos and updates on Twitter and Instagram

  17. This looks like such a beautiful shade! I've been wanting to try these for a while but I love the MUA version so much I can't decide if they're worth the extra price...would you say you prefer these or the revlon version? I'm thinking their shades are slightly better now we're going into autumn, can't wait to treat myself come pay day!
    Love Holly x


Thank you for making me a happy bunny!
