A/W 11 Bourjois PARIS DELHI SHANGHAI Sweet Kiss 81 Rose Folks Review

Mar 27, 2012

Pink, it's my new obsession, yeah 
Pink, it's not even a question 
Pink, on the lips of your lover 
'Cause pink is the love you discover

These words by Aerosmith are finally heard by Bourjois which launched 3 new sweet kiss shades in their PARIS DELHI SHANGHAI : AUTUMN/WINTER LIPSTICK TRENDS 2011 Collection


Be daring and embrace the ethnic trend in just one flick! Take your pick from our 3 new luscious Sweet Kiss pink shades and get ready to dress your lips in radiant colour.

3 pinks, 3 shades to suit all styles and leave your lips looking soft and irresistible!

The formula is enriched with natural Argan oil and vitamins C* and E with an incredibly soft and fine texture, for maximum comfort and up to 8 hours of moisture.

The three new shades are 

I got 81. If I say Paris Delhi Shanghai as 80, 81 and 82 then it feels awesome that I got Delhi! Let me just cut the blabber and come to the point.

Packaging - When it come to technical things in makeup then Bourjois always wins the race for me. It has a purple body with a silver button. You need to push it and slide it down...ummmm like an umbrella... to open the lipstick. When closing it back, wait for the click when it is locked inside.

Half closed.

Color - OHhhhh...finally I got my perfect Baby Pink! I adore the color. 

Stay - I asked the SA - what about the stay? "8 hrs" "If not then I will return it back" She just gave a nasty smile and said "OK"

I wore this on Monday morning. Loved the color even under the office light and then I had my breakfast and I knew it must have been vanished without a trace. When I saw the mirror after 4 hours of its application I could not believe my eyes.The color was still on my lips with 90% of the applied intensity! Nothing stays on like that on my lips! I almost did a small I-m-soo-happy dance ^_^

But then I also noticed a bit of flakiness. I reapplied after lunch but by evening I noticed that it was very drying. I would suggest to use a nice balm under it.

Lip Swatch

N*de Lips for reference.

With Sweet Kiss 81 Rose Folk

Smell - It smells just like those lip creams which I hate the most but then the smell is very less and it goes away thankfully.

Price - Its 650 INR...but wait something is wrong....I checked with the bill and they have charged me 750 INR!

I remember the boy SA saying to the girl SA when she mentioned the huge price- "750???" And she said "YES!"

I completely forgot to check as I was busy with the other stuff in the store.

Word of Caution - If you are buying from Bourjois Lifestyle GIP counter then please recheck the price! Now I will have to visit them again this weekend to ask why they did this to me!

Recommend - Yes for sure! But do check the other colors as well. In case you have dry lips then please stay away as it really makes your lips dry. I ended up using the Raam-Baan of lip issues - Boroline last night to take off the flakes that I got from this......well I used it without any lip balm......twice in a day

PS - What are your thoughts about the color? 

PPS - I also wanted that Khakhi nail polish that the girl is wearing in the first pic but then I only want bright colors for spring. What do you say, should I get that?

PPPS - Boroline is very important for a Bong ^_^


  1. I love the colour the model is wearing! It reminds me of my NYX Addis Ababa, wouldn't mind picking it up! :) The packaging reminds me of a BonneBell lipbalm I had when I was younger. <3

    That's a beautiful shade on you btw! And WTF is wrong with the SA! I hope you get your money back!

    1. Did you liked the nail polish of the model?

      BTW I really want to slap that SA now....I have to go there just to get my money back!

  2. That's a seriously pretty baby pink, perfect for springtime!! BTW the moment I read that they overcharged u first thing that popped in my head that you must've picked it up from Lifestyle, something similar happened to me once.Often after the price revision they increase the product price in their system but not the tags on products.What i find annoying is changing the markup on old stock,that's just plain bad business. Hope they refund you the difference atleast.

    1. yes dear..i got it from Lifestyle....i will tell u the trick they played..while sending for the bill, they mentioned it 750 in that small bill that u have to take to the counter to pay...I checked in the bill, that had used some other nail color ID no for the higher price...while going out I was surprised said "was this the shade I took?" and then the guy replaced with the actual ie this one!

      Sheer fraud..I really have to rethink if I will ever visit them! That girl in the counter is just.........leave it!

  3. first things first,
    its a damn beautiful shade which is lukin damn gud n natural smthing i wud luv to wear to office.
    I want dat super cute purple lippie case.
    Last bt not d least, u shud gv a piece of ur mind to dat CHEATER SA! How confidently ppl cheat, no?

    1. true...i might have never noticed if I had not listened to their 750 talk or checked my slip...i might have completely ignored it in my long big!

  4. gorgeous shade !! I am surely checkin out 81 :)
