Bobbi Brown Cabana Corals Collection

Bobbi Brown Cabana Corals Collection:  A Little Lip Color

Bobbi Brown Cabana Corals Collection includes two new shades of Lip Color (Cabo Coral – a warm pink coral; Guava – a medium tone nectar) and three new shades of Metallic Lip Color (Calypso Glaze — a golden pink; Coral Glaze — a nude nectar; and Coral Reef — a medium pink coral). All five new lipstick shades are $22 each with 0.12 oz. of product per lipstick. From Bobbi Brown’s website, Cabo Coral and Coral Glaze are limited edition.

I received three of them to test-drive, and my favorite was definitely Cabo Coral, but I like my lipsticks creamy and pigmented… so it wasn’t even much of a contest!

  • Cabo Coral is a creamy, richly pigmented orange-coral with soft, frosty sheen. Totally full coverage once applied to lips (my first ultra pigmented Bobbi Brown lipstick!).
  • Coral Reef is a semi-sheer orange-coral with a shimmery, frosty sheen. Applied to lips, it’s a very light coral and more of a golden shimmer-sheen.
  • Coral Glaze is a more muted orange-coral in comparison to Coral Reef (but both are similar to each other). The shimmer-sheen in this one, once applied, is more muted and has a more champagne-coral feel.

Any of these catch your fancy?

    Is it me that both coral reef and coral glaze look VERY similar?

  2. Chiara

    Cabo coral seems very nice!

  3. Wendelien

    Loooove love love it! Especially Cabo Coral!

  4. Jessica

    I adore the color range of Bobbi Brown’s lipsticks… but they have a weird, chemical/plastic smell and taste that I can’t tolerate. It’s a shame :(

    • I agree with you! I cannot wear them. They tatse really bad, NARS is hinestly not much better. Such a shame, because they have beautiful colours.

  5. Miss_Silk

    wow…Coral Reef and Coral Glaze look exactly the same on you…but Cabo Coral looks amazing on you! I love how it’s not a shocking bright coral color!

  6. Miss_M

    Wow, Cabo Coral looks great on you !! :)

  7. The Bobbi Brown Cabo Coral Lip Color looks beautiful are they out yet? Can you test out the Korres mango lipsticks :)

    Hi!!

    A little piece of advice, which are the must-have products from this collection?? Thank you! My skintone is similar to yours so besides Cabo Coral (I may have some similar lipsticks from MAC and Illamasqua) what other lipstick would you pick? Thank you!

  9. karen

    I like Cabo Coral.

  10. ALEX

    Hey! I have the Cabo Coral pot rouge…is the cabo coral lipstick different enough to get that too. I also already got Fresh Salmon from Mac which is a very wearable coral. Oh and I enjoy the way the pot rouge feels on my lips and the coverage so I don’t need the lipstick because it would be a betty version formula wise but just if its a different color…hope that makes sense :/. I’ve always been drawn to corals and am glad that thats the trend this year so I have to stock up! Thanks!

  11. Estelle

    Cabo Coral looks good! But I wonder if that color would suit Asian, yellow-tone skin???

    I bought Coral Glaze and Cabo Coral a few weeks ago and I adore them. I like how it fits in with Mac Colour Forecast 2.

  13. Ryan

    The fist one lookd really pretty but im gonna skip on this. There is going to be a lot of corals this spring.

  14. Akia

    Hmmm, I’m thinking I might need to own that Cabo Coral… it’s right up my alley and will be my first BB lip color. Thinking about that Coral Pot Rouge too… I love BB’s Pot Rouges!

  15. Natalie

    OMG, Cabo Coral is to die for!!

  16. I think Coral Glaze & Coral Reef may have to come home with me! :)

  17. Shweta

    I am totally loving Cabo Coral.
    Christine, do you think a NC 35-40 can pull this color off?
    Thanks as always :)

    I wish I could pull off Cabo Coral the way Christine can, but the other two will go on my list.

  19. amy

    Cabo Coral is pretty and I might just have to pick one up!

  20. Karen

    Of the 2 (Reef and Glaze) which would you pick?

  21. Mel

    Hi there, been following your blog just recently, and I love the fact that you actually put the pic of the product on your self. Which one of these color would you recommend for an asian medium complexion? I love all the colors and are still experimenting with colors. Thanks!! :)

  22. Kelly

    I definitely want Coral Reef, and maybe the other two, too!

  23. jasmin

    what coral lipstick angelina jolie wear in vanity fair magazine?

  24. NarindaTakhar

    The ‘Cabo Coral; looks very similar to the shade ‘Soft Coral’ that you had reviewed earlier. Would you say its Cabo Coral is more of a softer version and not as bright like the Soft Coral shade?

  25. NarindaTakhar

    Cabo Coral looks very similar to Soft Coral, would you say Cabo Coral is lot more softer and not as bright as the Soft Coral Shade?
