Bobbi Brown Raisin Lip Color

The Sultry Season: Bobbi Brown Raisin Lip Color

Bobbi Brown Raisin Lip Color ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted rusted red-brown. It’s described as a “rich plum brown,” but it’s so hard for me to see the plum in shades like this. Once you tell me, I feel like maybe I can see it, but then maybe I’m just trying too hard! Raisin is an opaque shade with excellent color coverage and feel–very smooth and clings without pulling moisture out of lips. It has a slight glossiness to it but no real shimmer.  It’s also scent- and taste-free!

Oh, and psst, it’s a dead ringer for Chanel’s Imperial Rouge Allure Laque in color (doesn’t have the fine gold shimmer, but color-wise…)!

Is this the right “plum” for you? Would you wear it?

The Sultry Season is a series of posts featuring deep, rich shades of brown, berry, plum, and wine lipsticks and lipglosses — just right for autumn — that runs through November 2010.

Product & Review FAQ

Where can I purchase Raisin? How much is it?

Is it limited edition?


Any dupes?

It's the lipstick version of Chanel Imperial Rouge Allure Laque -- it doesn't have the gold shimmer that Imperial does, but the color itself is very, very close.

  2. That color looks SO pretty on you!

  3. It might look too light on my NC42 skin. I would hsve to test it before buying.

    Wow. Love this colour! It reminds me of Cover Girl Outlast in Canyon, which is the same sort of hard to describe muted brownish-peachy-red-pink-rust. A great colour that suits almost anybody – in fact I get a TON of compliments every time I wear it. I’ve been looking out for a similar shade in lipstick form, so I’ll definitely be picking up Brown Raisin.

    I am in love with this color. Name anything Raisin and I’ll buy it. I don’t know why because I hate actual raisins, but it’s the reddish-brownish shade that I love so much especially in the autumn months.
