Round-up: Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Color Extensions (Fall 2016) Overview

Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Colors
Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Colors

Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is supposed to have one-stroke color coverage with a hydrating, smoothing formula, and “nourishing shine.” I was impressed with the formula as a whole, as the majority of the shades were very pigmented in one pass with a creamy consistency that glided on easily. There’s a richness to the texture that does feel more “luxe” in a way. The natural-to-luminous shine level gives lips a smoother, plumper look, while the formula itself is hydrating and many shades are longer wearing. I noticed that the lighter shades tended to perform more poorly relative to more light-medium to medium-dark-hued shades. There was a faint floral scent (that was a surprise, I wish they had gone the unscented!), but I didn’t have issues with taste and found it very subtle on.

The new shades are nice to see to the line, as it shows that the range has been successful enough to merit shade extensions!

Bobbi Brown Flame, Imperial Red, Bobbi Luxe Lip Colors

Bobbi Brown Flame Luxe Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) was a bright, medium-dark orange-red with strong, red undertones and a satiny sheen. This shade wasn’t as glossy as others in the range, but it was still a more luminous finish overall. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy, and glided on easily. It had mostly opaque pigmentation that covered my lips evenly. I was able to wear this for six hours, and it felt moisturizing during that time.

Bobbi Brown Bahama Brown, Uber Rose, Tahiti Pink Luxe Lip Colors

Bobbi Brown Bahama Brown Luxe Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium rosy mauve with warm undertones and a cream finish. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy and glided across the lips without tugging or dragging. It yielded opaque coverage in a single stroke, and despite the slip, the edges were quite crisp and even without work. On my lips, the formula felt hydrating over the five hours this shade lasted for. I noticed very slight color settled into my lip lines after four hours of wear. Bobbi Brown Bobbi (P, $35.00) is lighter, more muted, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Tampered (P, $17.00) is darker (90% similar).

Bobbi Brown Bellini, Uber Beige, Bond Luxe Lip Colors

Bobbi Brown Bellini Luxe Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium, coral-orange with warm undertones and a creamy finish with a light sheen. It had rich, opaque pigmentation with a lightweight, very creamy texture that glided on without tugging on the lips, but it had enough slip that I had trouble with some of the color gathering in lip lines over time. It was comfortable to wear, as the formula was hydrating, over the five hours it lasted. Tom Ford Beauty Twist of Fate (LE, $50.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Chella (LE, $5.00) is lighter (90% similar). NARS Lodhi (P, $25.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Margherita (LE, $17.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar).
