Bobbi Brown Pink Cocoa Rich Color Gloss

Bobbi Brown Pink Cocoa Rich Color Gloss ($23.00 for 0.24 fl. oz.) is described as a “heather beige.” It’s a medium-dark reddish-orange brown with rose pink and gold shimmer. MAC Join the Party came the closest, but it is lighter and doesn’t have the same colored shimmer. I was surprised that I couldn’t think of more potential dupes for this shade!

The formula yields mostly opaque color coverage that doesn’t settle much and covers evenly. Pink Cocoa wore for around four hours when I trialed it. It’s supposed to be moisturizing, and while it’s not drying, I didn’t feel like my lips were hydrated post-wear. The texture is non-sticky, not too thick or too thin, and comfortable to wear. It is also mint-scented.

The Glossover

Pink Cocoa

B+
For an alternative to paler nudes, this is one that gives the lips a neutral color without washing out your skin tone. It complements a smoky eye just as well as the more traditional nude hues do.

  1. i was just wondering to myself: “christine’s blush colour is amazing. what colour is that??”

    then i saw that you couldn’t remember what it was. lol.

  2. Hmm, Guerlain might have a KissKiss Gloss shade similar to this one. At first it reminds me of Chanel Insouciance but this looks darker.

    On another note, poor you, so much review backlog. o_O; *offers hugs*

  3. this looks really nice! i might have to try this out for myself!

    This is so pretty that it can be my first lip product purchase from bobbi brown! But I will check out for loval drugstore dupes first as I always do since I am not much of a gloss person:)

    That looks super pretty on you, Christine. I just started wondering if Bobbi Brown can do other shades than nudes.

    I’m happy to see bobbi brown finally made her gloss size in line with other high end brands, it used to be .14oz for the same price! How often do you see quantities go -up- instead of down for reformulations? Not to mention this color looks amazing and right up my alley…

    I’ve always had the problems of nude lipsticks/glosses washing me out. Can you think of any cheaper/drugstore dupes for this?

  11. Jenny

    Wow that color looks completely dull in the tube but looks amazing on the lips.

  12. pquanda

    gorgeous! the shade kind of reminds me of urban decay’s gloss in “naked”
