Bobbi Brown Miami Coral Rich Lip Color
Bobbi Brown Miami Coral Rich Lip Color

Bobbi Brown Miami Coral Rich Lip Color ($23.00 for 0.13 oz.) is described as a “nectar.” It looks surprisingly orange in the tube, and even still when swatched (but to a lesser degree), but it’s much pinker on the lips. I actually went back and swatched this just prior to writing out the review, because I was like, “What? This doesn’t look right!” It’s more like a pink coral with warm, yellow undertones once applied. MAC Flamingo is less opaque, less creamy-looking and a touch darker. Chanel Flirt is similar but a little less pale. MAC Blossom Culture is several shades pinker. MAC Ever Hip is similar but a touch less pink.

Bobbi Brown’s Rich Lip Color formula is touted as long-wearing, moisturizing, and have “pure, crisp color.”  When it first came out, I was pleasantly surprised; it’s a creamy yet lightweight lipstick that glides on easily and delivers opaque color coverage with very little product.  It’s also hydrating enough that lips don’t feel dry after four to eight hours of wear.  Not all shades wear the same, as lighter shades tend to fade away after four hours or so, while more intense shades (like a red) can wear six hours or longer.  Miami Coral managed to make it four hours when I trialed it.

Miami Coral is a great shade for both spring and summer--it will be an awesome transitional shade, too. Because it's not too orange or too pink, both cool and warm complexions should find this wearable.

    What a gorgeous colour! Have to buy it!

  2. Natalie

    I’m sorry, but is this available at Sephora? I can’t seem to find it…

    That’s my type of color! Might get this since I can’t find Mac Flamingo in Mac’s Thailand counter >_<

  4. I loved the Rich Lip Color formula but none of the initial shades look good on me. I’ll be tempted to give Miami Coral a shot.

  5. Wow, peachy pink you say? This looks right up my alley.

  6. Angela

    Gorgeous!!!! I really want to buy it now!

  7. This is definitely on my to-buy list as I couldn’t get Flamingo!

  8. Kellie

    I have this lipstick and love it – both the color & formula. Do you know if it is limited edition?

  9. Natalie

    I love the color on your lips but the swatch on your hand looks so much more coral. Is the lighting off at all?

  10. Nicole

    The swatch and the lip color look so different! Still beautiful though :)

  11. Mari

    Hi! Are you planning on reviewing/ swatching the lipstick called Neon Pink from the bobbi brown nude and neon collection? I have been debating wether to get it or not but decided to wait for your review! Thanks for all the help!

  12. claire

    OMG this is soo pretty!

  13. definitely one of the most beautiful everyday colours I’ve ever seen.

  14. Amber

    This is IMMENSELY flattering on you! I want it for myself, although I don’t even own ONE lipstick, I don’t like drawing attention to my mouth and my.. weird lip corners. But this is lovely. A nice ‘my lips but better but still lipstick looking” lipstick.

  15. Yumi

    this is lovely! i may just have to run to the bobbi brown counter and face the scary girls there for it!

  16. vina

  17. Amber

    I love the whole look you did with this lipstick, and would love to know what you have on your cheeks and eyes as well. The foundation looks perfect too!

    The color on your lips and the swatch color looks entirely different. Could it be the lighting?
