Bourjois red lips
So a good red lip is something I really do love wearing. I can usually be seen in MAC Ruby Woo (that I have owned for years!) or any of the Kate Moss Rimmel reds but for summer I really wanted something a bit brighter and if anyone has ever used Ruby Woo something a bit more moisturising. I was at an event and a girl I knew had the most amazing orange red lip! I had to ask her what it was it was MAC Lady Danger. I was so sad when I heard this as with my intern income it was a bit out of my price range. The hunt for a dupe began.

Bouigois Lippy
I scoured the tiny makeup aisle of Boots in Kilkenny and decide on the Bourjois Rouge Edition in number 10. I didn't have a swatch of Lady Danger to compare it to but it seemed to have the right amount of orange to it without me looking like a clementine. It has a very creamy formula so it moisturising but I find it hard to get used to the lasting power of it after getting so used to matte finish reds. I definitely recommend a lip liner underneath this lipstick as it does have a tendency to fall from the middle of the lips and bleed out. I think colour wise it is a good dupe to Lady Danger but I think Lady Danger would have a bit more lasting power. Also price wise not too much of a difference as this was around the €11 mark and Mac are only €18.  Even though I wish I had spent the extra and got the MAC I have got good wear out of the Bourjois and really like how bright it makes me feel.

Anyway I hope you enjoyed my FIRST makeup review!  I hope to do a few more on some of my favourite and new products.

#AwesomeAugust is going well so far, have a lot of ideas I plan to try out during this month!
