I remember when I was walking all alone through the 8th arrondissement last year, I suddenly felt like I'm not dressed up enough and that I don't look nice enough in general. After taking a quick look around, I realized that most women around me were wearing red lipstick.

I ended up spending forever in the Ladurée bathroom (after eating the most amazing French toasts with whipped cream) painting my lips with a bright red lip pencil. If only I knew back then about Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in 03 Hot Pepper!

This liquid lipstick has quite literally changed my life. After purchasing it last December, I hardly ever taken it out of the makeup bag I carry around with me every day. It's almost like a matte fluid that glides on beautifully and stays put - even if you drink coffee or eat a greasy spaghetti carbonara. It requires very minimal retouching throughout the day, doesn't dry your lips out and removes easily with micellar water. I've been wearing it all the time ever since I got it, and painting my lips red is no more a nightmare for me - in fact, it's as simple as brushing my teeth.

I own quite a few red lipsticks (MAC, Guerlain, YSL), but I barely ever reach out for them these days, cause after trying out Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in 03 Hot Pepper none of them is as good and easy to wear.

That said, I have to mention I'm not a fan of this very same lipstick in the color 06 Ping Pong (the formula is thicker and less long-lasting) and the Aqua Laque version (the glossy finish looks a bit off to me). Also: I heard from quite a few people that 08 Grand Cru goes on patchy - beware! PS What is one makeup item you can't live without?
