Bourjois Color Boost - worth the hype!

Bourjois Color Boost Plum

 I am a bit late on the bandwagon with this one, but here it is - the Bourjois Color Boost in the colour Plum Russian. Everyone and their brother's dog has raved about this baby, and it was about time I laid my hands on it. The color Plum Russian was just released in my country, so I just couldn't resist the temptation.

... And it is as amazing as they say. Let's get crackin on the review.

Excuse the tiny scar on my lip :D

Packaging & price tag: The packaging isn't something extremely luxurious or innovative, but it is amazingly appealing. The colors are so vibrant and they caught my eye right away. I got this on sale (yes, lucky me) and it was about 6$, which is a total bargain.
Colour & how long it lasts: The colour is a-mazing. I must admit, I never wear plums or anything darker than a rosy nude, so this was a bit of a venture for me. It totaly paid out. The color is a gorgeous almost sheer plum, but it can be built up for a more dramatic effect. But here, see for yourselves.
I can't say it last very long, as it has a gossy texture. They promise 10 hours, but come on - who can live up to that. Still it lasts reasonably long for what it is.
I must say, my favourite thing about it is the smell. It smells like violets, but it's a very sweet, almost candy-like smell. Amazing.
Overall verdict: I am in love. The glossy finish, the colour, the smell, and the price tag are all satisfactory, and the more expencive equivalents like the Clinique Chubby Sticks.. well, I don't think they're worth it. This is perfect not just if you're on a budget, as it has that "expencive product" feel.

I know most of you have tried this, but still I can't help but recommend it. I'll be getting another color soon, hope it's as good as this one!

What d you guys think of this product, have you tried it (I'm sure you have, but still), and would you buy it again?
