Every fan of Bobbi Brown knows just what started it all – ten lipsticks which complemented the natural colour of lips and the shades of different skin tones. Bobbi Brown released the Luxe Lip Color Lipstick late last year, and now has added 10 shades which make up The New Classics collection, each being inspired by The Original Ten.
Bobbi is a cool-toned light-medium nude brown, which is without doubt a versatile shade and one which you can get plenty of wear from, if the shade complements either the natural colour of your lips or your skin tone. This shade runs a touch too light for me and as a result, slightly out of my comfort zone, but I can make it work better for me if I wear it on top of a darker lip liner. If you’re wanting to wear a dark smoky eye this would complement this extremely well, due to its subtleness contrasting with the drama of a smoky eye.
I’ve experienced Bobbi Brown’s Luxe Lip Color before, so I know what makes the formula more luxe than Bobbi’s standard lipsticks. The formula provides a completely full and opaque level of pigment with even a single swipe, and has a slight glossy sheen and a creamy, non-drying consistency. The muted sheen offers a sophisticated taken on standard shiny lipsticks. I’ve found that the use of a lip liner beforehand is useful but not at all necessary – the lipstick is shaped to ensure precision when applying, and the lipstick has a superb longevity too, lasting solidly for at least five to six hours.
Also different to a regular lipstick is the fancy, gold exterior, which includes Bobbi’s crest on the lid which provides the last word in lipstick luxury and conveys that this is a premium product. This lipstick does cost more than comparable ones, however it offers 3.8g of actual product, where a typical lipstick may only contain 3g of product. Bobbi Brown’s Luxe Lip Color provides a luxurious lipstick experience, in terms of the flattering, easy-to-wear shades on offer and the high quality too.
Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Color is priced at £25.00.
