Bourjois Rouge Edition ‘Rouge Jet Set’ Lipstick Review

Bourjois products have been pleasantly surprising me lately. My new favorite foundation is from Bourjois, and now I’ve also found the perefct red lipstick!


I don’t know since when have these lipsticks been avaliable in other countries, but in Slovenia the Bourjois Rouge Edition lipstick collection had to be released not more than a month ago. Well, at least I haven’t seen them anywhere before. To be honest, what persuaded me to take a look at them is their packaging. It looks really sleek, modern and I love how you can see the color of the lipstick at the bottom. It’s also quite sturdy, so it doesn’t look or feel cheap like most drugstore lipsticks usually do.


This collection of lipsticks is definitely one of the best ones I’ve seen so far. The selection of the shades is amazing! There are 18 of them and range from nudes, classic reds, soft flirty pinks and some really bold ones. They all seemed gorgeous to me, which can be confirmed by my sister. After swatching them and falling in love with their texture and pigmentatiton, I soon had about 5 of them in my hands. My sister thankfully detected the danger of me spending 50€ on lipsticks again, so she ‘allowed me’ to only pick one, haha. I eventually went with the ‘Rouge Jet Set’ in my lucky number 13. I’ve been looking for the perfect red lipstick for ages, and I think I have now finally found one. 🙂


As you can see, the lipstick is very pigmented. It has a soft, creamy texture (my favorite) and doesn’t dry out your lips at all. The durability is very decent as well. It lasted about two hours on my lips before losing its sheen, but my lips remained stained for extra two hours. It’s not the cheapest drugstore lipstick out there – it costs about 11€ in my country – but I think it’s worth the money.

Has anyone else tried the Rouge Edition lipsticks? Do you love them as much as I do?

    Wow, I haven't tried this range yet but I deffo need to try this out! I adore the packaging, and love Bourjois items.I sometimes think though when drug store items are priced so high if I add a bit more money I can then afford something like Mac, so sometimes opt out because of that reason.

    This looks lovely! I haven't ever really tried out Bourjois makeup bar the healthy mix foundation (which I love). I think it might be time I had a closer look at their stand. xo
