While out in town last Saturday with a friend, we popped into Beauty Bazaar and had a ponder round the many beauty counters. I came across the Bobbi Brown stand and realised i've never purchased anything ever from the make up legend herself...I've got three books at home on Bobbi Brown beauty and it's said that her lipsticks were her first ever and most iconic product she made so I thought this would be a good place to start. I didn't think I could find a better lipstick other than by MAC but it's safe to say, i've found a new, even better favourite. I was looking for a Kylie Jenner type lip colour- the beauty consultant didn't know who I was talking about-but I knew what I was looking for anyway. I decided to try out a few on my hand to see what I liked best. Many colours later and a lipstick covered hand, I decided to go for 'Rose' (staying true to my name hoho).
What I noticed first was the amazing creamy, smoothness of Bobbi Brown Lip Color- it glides on perfectly, feels nice and moisturising and the colour actually lasts. It leaves a smooth, moisturised finish- as opposed to a matte finish. I've found with other lipsticks that I would have to re-apply every so often as it would disappear after eating or just on its own. The Bobbi Brown Lip Color stays put and the colour stays as strong as when you first applied it. It looks slightly dark in the photos, which you wouldn't think it would be with the name 'Rose' but I'd describe the colour as a darkish brown mixed with pink- a dark nude, if you like. It looks great for an everyday make up look or you can build it up with a few more layers for more of a night time look. I think it will look great with nude eyes but it also looks great with a brown smokey eye, which I've tried myself with my Naked 2 palette. It is slightly on the pricey end but SO worth it. It's a lipstick of top quality and I will be back to visit a Bobbi Brown stand again- I'm sold.
Here is me wearing (and embarassingly pouting) in the Bobbi Brown Lip Color:
