Bobbi Brown Pink Peony Rich Lip Color
Bobbi Brown Pink Peony Rich Lip Color

Bobbi Brown Pink Peony Rich Lip Color ($23.00 for 0.13 oz.) is described as a “medium-toned pink.” It’s a medium-dark watermelon pink with opaque color coverage and a natural sheen. Bite Beauty Rose is more orange, darker. MAC Full Speed is a bit darker. Bobbi Brown Mod Pink is pinker. Dolce & Gabbana Splendid is slightly pinker. VS Be Mine is darker, brighter.

Pink Peony wore for five and a half hours and needed a reapplication after six and a half hours.  It feels lightweight, despite its creamy consistency, and comfortable to wear.  I never have any post-wear problems–my lips don’t feel dry or chapped even after wearing one of these for six hours or longer.  My experience with Pink Peony was true-to-formula, which is supposed to be long-wearing, moisturizing, and full color coverage.  This is my favorite lipstick formula that Bobbi Brown makes, and I’m so glad to see her continually add new shades to the range.

This will be very flattering on warmer complexions, but I think it will work on cooler skin tones, too, because it has a lot of pink in it. If you have more red in your natural lip color, this may turn a bit coral.

    Oh my goodness…that colour is absolutely gorgeous on you Christine. I definitely need to hit a Bobbi Brown counter to check this one out.

    F.Y.I. This particular shade (Pink Peony) is a hard one to find online. Bobbi Brown’s web site does not even list available for purchase because they are currently out of stock. After speaking with a BB customer service rep, I learned that it will be in stock at an unknown later date.

    BlueMercury.com has it in stock as of yesterday. Macys.com does not have it available for purchase. Nordstroms.com has it currently in stock. Many of the Nordstrom stores do not have it in stock so good luck in trying to find it at your local BB counter.

    I think the reason why this is a bit difficult to get right now is that Pink Peony lipstick is used with a top coat of Pink Cocoa lipgloss on the model in the promo ad for their Rose Gold Collection.

    I have more pigmented lips than yours so I am wondering how Pink Peony will look on me. I ordered both the lipstick and Pink Cocoa lipgloss from Nordstroms.com yesterday. I am hoping the brown tones in Pink Cocoa will tame down the brightness of the lipstick.

      I emailed an artist at Bobbi Brown and they said to recreate the look on the promo picture they used: apply PINK PEONY Rich Lip Color SPF 12 (a medium toned pink). Line lips after lip color with BEIGE Lip Liner (a light warm beige) and layer with ROSE GOLD Shimmer Lip Gloss (a pinky gold).

      fyi, my lips are fairly pigmented, and pink peony looks amazing on them. it’s just an all around beautiful, wearable, bright-but-not-overly-bright pink.

  3. Another gorgeous colour, you are really making me want them! Love that t’s a bit of a darker pink, but still very wearable :).

  4. Elva

    I really love this kind of shade. It’s playful n alive.

  5. Jenny

    My eyes are playing tricks on me because this looks exactly like Nude Rose to me.

  6. Caroline

    such a pretty color, unfortunately Bobbi Brown is not available here in Brazil and kinda hard to find online….just wondering, what are you wearing on your cheeks?

  7. This looks gorgeous! Definitely want to give it a try when I can get my hands on it :)

  8. Eva

    Woah, this colour is just perfect for summer! Christine, could you tell me if it is very similar to MAC Watch Me Simmer? I wanted to try this last one but when I went to the stand it was already sold out…

    Thanks to your swatches I bought three rich lipcolors lastweek . Can you please do a swatch of ‘twig’.

    Open both posts, the pink peony one and the nude rose one, in two seperate windows, and then switch quick from one to the other. That’s what I did. You’ll notice pink peony is more pink and nude rose is more of a beigy pink :)

    It looks lovely on you, Christine!
     
    I was just wondering.. Is this similar to Bobbi Brown Pink Lipstick? (summer season 2010)
     
    Thank you :)
