Bourjois Sweet Kiss Naturel Lipstick

Posted by Lipglossiping On June - 21 - 2010

Bourjois Sweet Kiss Naturel, a new lipstick available in 10 shades that promises to contain 100% natural ingredients and long-lasting colour.

These natural ingredients include lovely-sounding things such as: magnolia oil, shea butter, jojoba oil, green tea, beeswax and mineral/plant pigments.

I was sent two shades to try: Fuchsia Ardent (04) and Sienne Kiss (09)

The packaging is the same as the original Sweet Kiss range from Bourjois (though a different coloured plastic)… it’s incredibly tactile… I could click and click for hours…

The formula (which promises to be silky, melting and creamy) is a little bit harder than those adjectives would imply.  Though it certainly doesn’t create any drag on the lips, I’ve definitely applied softer-feeling lipsticks.  Also, I’m not loving the scent.  It’s quite waxy… but I guess it’s not easy to be vigilantly natural and delicately perfumed all at the same time… plus, I can’t smell it once it’s on my lips, only if I sniff the tube.

What I would say about the Sweet Kiss Naturel Lipsticks though is that they’re wonderfully light.  I can apply a ton of product and STILL not feel like I’ve built up a layer of beeswax.  This results in fabulous pigmentation without any gloopiness or heaviness on the lip, and that’s a rather unusual and impressive achievement for a ‘drugstore’ lipstick.

This is a few swipes straight from the tube, the lipstick applies sheerly at first but builds up to a great intensity as you can see.  The finish is semi-matte and extremely easy to wear.

Longevity is average despite claims of 8hr moisturising wear… perhaps if I were enclosed in a vacuum… but I do normal girl things like drink tea, eat muffins and chew on pencils, so these lasted around 3 hours on me before fading away leaving my lips just a touch drier than before… nothing that I’m not familiar with from other lip products.

I would say that they bridge the gloss/lipstick gap… but they don’t, they’re too opaque and matte to be drawing any comparisons with gloss.

Overall, at £7.99 (€11.99) each, I think they’re a great buy.  Particularly if you’re usually uncomfortable with the heaviness of a lipstick.  If you give them a try, let me know what you think!

    the fuschia looks like a red coral to me! but lovely all the same.

    I agree, the fuscha doesn’t look like a fuschia as much, but it’s still pretty! Am loving that other shade though. I haven’t bought anything from Bourjois for bloomin years, don’t know why, it’s one of those stands I always walk straight past, yet if anyone asked me i’d say I really like their stuff!!

  3. Julia says:

    Sienne Kiss is beautiful 🙂 It looks soo smooth…

  4. akisa says:

    I tried the Prune Caresse shade from the Natural range & it was a sheer red. Great concept but isn’t a lipstick I would find myself going back to as a “go to shade”

  5. Charlie says:

    The Fuchsia doesn’t look fuchsia, it is however, beautiful!

  6. Lillian says:

    Siene Kiss is very pretty on you, lovely peach 🙂

  7. Joy says:

    Those two colours are so pretty. They really suit you! I’m definitely going to take a look at these next time I go shopping 🙂

  8. These both look great on you but that doesn’t shock me. Are these as frosty in real life as they look in the swatch? Or is it just fine shimmer?

  9. @JeweledThumb – No frost or shimmer, that’s just the creaminess, a bit of shine.

  10. You’re right, the fuchsia isn’t very fuchsia… it’s not a coral red though… more a pink-red.

  11. Rae says:

    Ooh, these are lovely! I’m a huge sucker for a semi-matte. And that closure does look fun… 😛

  12. I’ve never tried a Bourjois lipstick before because I find they tend to do mostly brown/pale pink shades which I can’t wear having quite pigmented pink lips naturally, but I just looked on the website and they have loads of red shades in this range. Whee! I mean I can’t buy any more lipsticks I have too many ahem.

  14. Rebecca says:

    the fuschia looks fab on you!
