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. 

26 Beige Democrachic  is gorgeous pale nude color (reminds me of Revlon Lip Butter in Creme Burlee),which scared me so much as I thought the color washes away on me, but I took a dare and applied it once and fell in love. On lips its shown as beautiful and MOST natural lip color. The color appears so natural 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 natural color and shine without being gooey or sloppy. Though the formula is a bit sheer but definitely built-able and can be used as 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. It feels insanely hydrated and moisturizing which 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. However, 26 Beige Democrachic can't keep dry/chapped lips hydrated for a long period of my unlike its sister color 20,123 Soleil which lasts easily on me for about 3-4 hours easily, but 26 Beige Democrachic stayed around there for two to three hours hardly with natural looking lips with iridescent pink/purple micro glitters. It fades out completely without any tacky feeling or residues. If consider as a lip balm, the lasting time is just average like any other lip balm and as for lipstick below average for me.

 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 reaching out for it every time with dark, intense smoky eye look for effortlessly luscious shiny lip without going over-board.
