My Verdict

I'm a huge fan of matte lipstick because of their wear-time and it does stand out beautifully against oily skin until I got Bourjois Shine Edition Lipsticks which claims to give ultra shine and radiant color with a comfort of lip balm. I was not impressed when I first read the word 'Lip Balm' as lip balms tend to give a quite sheer coverage and very faint tint (if lip balms are tinted), But I proved wrong as soon as I used it. For a lip balm I LOVE how pigmented they are packed with ultra shine and radiance. 

20, 123 Soleil is gorgeous tangerine orange color (reminds me of Revlon Lip Butter in Tutti Frutti ), and scared me so much as I never tried any orange lipstick before, but I took a dare, applied it once and fell in love. On lips its shown as beautiful peachy orange color. The colors appear much lighter on lips as it seems in the bullet. The formula is moisturizing and having a buttery smooth texture which glides on lips like a dream by giving a healthy pop of color and shine without being gooey or sloppy. Though the formula is a bit sheer but definitely built-able and can be used a lip tint as well as a full opaque lipstick. As for a lipstick, the formula is light as a feather and same you can experience on lips i.e. apply and forget that you're wearing something on lips. As, the formula is insanely hydrated and moisturizing it tends to slide and slip a little and can melt too in warm climates. 

The staying time of shine edition lipstick is just beyond words. They can keep dry/chapped lips hydrated for about 3-4 hours easily and for my normal lips they stayed around there for about good 5 hours and leaves a beautiful orange tint on the lips before fades out completely without any tacky feeling or residues. If consider as a lip balm, the lasting time is commendable and as for lipstick, they are one of the best long-lasting lipstick in my stash. The mirror packaging is so shiny and chic and kind of different from their regular packaging allows you to do a quick touch ups when needed. They are travel friendly, just toss in your makeup bag for a having a healthy pop of glossy lips as they are amazing without bleeding or clinging to dry areas of the lips.

Despite that is bit on the pricey side, I so want to add shine editions other colors in my stash as it was my everyday staple entire summer and I'm already seeing myself reaching out for it for my entire summer next year as well for effortlessly luscious shiny lips.
