New product launches from Bourjois

Bourjois has announced the launch of two new products.  First is Volume 1 seconde mascara (£9.99) which features wrap-around spherical bristles to coat and define each individual lash, without forming clumps.  The formula combines three active lash-morphing ingredients including carnauba and bees waxes, as well as jojoba ester for a 16 hour hold.  Available in intense black and intense black waterproof, this can be removed in a single step and has a longer lasting 24-hour hold.  Also from Bourjois comes Rouge Edition Velvet (£8.99), a new lipstick collection that applies like a lacquer and has a matte finish, enhanced colour and 24-hour hold.  Packaged in a clear bottle with foam applicator, the collection features eight shades including: Personne ne rouge! (intense red); Frambourjoise (berry red); Hot pepper (orange red); Peach club (pale orange); Ole flamingo! (raspberry pink); Pink pong (fuchsia pink); Nude-ist (rose nude); and Grand cur (burgundy red).
