Bobbi Brown Sunset Beach Treatment Lip Shine SPF 15
Bobbi Brown Sunset Beach Treatment Lip Shine SPF 15

Bobbi Brown Sunset Beach Treatment Lip Shine SPF 15 ($23.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “golden bronze.” It’s an orange-brown with a coppery orange shimmer–the finish looks very frosted. The color is mostly opaque. CoverGirl Hypnotic is darker, redder. NYX Sparkling Beige is more metallic, more shimmered. MAC Viva Glam VI is more subdued, pink-toned. Dolce & Gabbana Desert is darker, browner. MAC Infused with Glam is similar, perhaps more metallic. Guerlain Forever Beige is very similar. MAC Spiced Tea is also quite similar, perhaps more orange.

The texture of Sunset Beach isn’t quite as smooth as other shades in the range, and I think it’s due to the much higher frost content.  The others have more of a subtly shiny balm look to their finishes, but this looks a little drier. It feels that way, too. I wouldn’t describe it as dry so much as it has a thinner texture with less slip.  It still applied evenly and easily, though.  This shade only wore two and a half hours on me before fading away into oblivion, which was disappointing.  It wasn’t as moisturizing as some of the other hues I reviewed from the launch.

Like the rest of the line, it is scent- and taste-free, comes in a glossy black tube with a shiny gold interior. Each tube of lipstick is about half the size of your average lipstick, but the amount is consistent with this type of a tube/product type. I still wish brands would give you more, though. I wonder what it is about this type of packaging that they don’t seem to make it large enough to accommodate a full lipstick’s worth of product.

Sunset Beach

B-
Not my favorite in the Treatment Lip Shine range, because it's doesn't wear as well as the other shades, has less moisturizing benefits, and has a drier texture.

    Definitely not a fan. Also….in the box “what makeup are you wearing,” you say you’re wearing nothing on your cheeks, but it sure looks like are!

  2. Jasmine

    One of your cheeks is white and the other is pink and you’re… not wearing any blush? You have a very interesting complexion!

  3. I have this and I love it. Got it at the CCO.  More vibrant in real life.

  4. Pretty! I have Peach Sorbet and love it. Didn’t even check this one out, but it’s a lot more pigmented than I thought it would be. I have to grab one before its too late!

    Christine, you can make anything look good!!!  I bought the Tarina Tarantino eyeliner in Kanzashi after seeing it on you so many time lately.  It’s gorgeous!!!  Thanks for all you do….

  7. I like the Bobbi Brown. I makes the lips so sexy. It is very fine product for lips. And the lips picture are very sexy.

    I liked it with the make up you had with it but I don’t think it is a color for everyone if you are going to spend $23.00.  Your picture was beautiful.
