Bobbi Brown Hollywood Red Lip Color

Bobbi Brown Hollywood Red Lip Color ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bright, candy apple red with fuchsia undertones and scarlet red micro-shimmer. It’s rich and opaque, and the color is nearly traffic-stopping. This pink-based red makes wearing a cooler red easier for those with warmer skin tones while still brightening teeth.

Bobbi Brown’s Lip Colors are scent- and taste-free. With a vibrant shade like this, I easily get four hours of wear, but it usually extends to five or six. Many of the shades from the Lip Color range are incredibly rich in pigmentation–lots of creamy, opaque shades to go around, and Hollywood Red is no exception. It’s a new shade for the holidays, but it’s also sticking around (aka it’s not limited edition).

    What a gorgeous color! It looks amzing on you, Christine.

    Just one wee question. Is the packaging the same as the one of the Chanel Rouge Coco’s? Looks identical!

  10. Valerie Brower

    The n-th same-red lipstick on the market. Sometimes I really would like to know if people at the cosmetics companies have any imaginative capability -_-’

    Hi Christine,

    Isn’t it very similar to MAC Heartless and Chanel Rouge Coco Gabrielle? Even though I have both, now I want this too! What about other LE reds newly released by Bobbi Brown? Did you check Vintage or Vixen? Are they very different?

  19. A TRULY BEAUTIFUL RED INDEED. BUT I AM SUCH A SUCKER FOR A RED LIPSTICK! AS LONG AS IT IS NICE AND MATT LIKE THIS ONE. NO GLOSSY REDS FOR ME.

  20. This look really stunning, and I think I would really love it. How does the formula compair to the chanel rouge allure?

    Hello! I don’t know if you check this but I would LOVE to know what eyeliner you used to line your lower lash line / water line– it is beautiful!!!
    (I love the red lips, too!)
