Bobbi Brown Hot Berry, Lady Ruba, Watermelon Lip Colors

Bobbi Brown Hot Berry Lip Color ($26.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “bright, pink berry.” It’s a bright, fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and violet iridiescent shimmer. It had mostly opaque color coverage with a smidgen of translucency that enabled the natural lip color to come through (this may turn red on those with more natural red pigment in their lip color). The consistency was lightweight, creamy, and easy to apply and didn’t have any issues on or when I pressed my lips together (a problem with some of the other shades in the range). It wore well for five and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Guerlain Rose Grenat (864) (LE, $51.00) is brighter, warmer. Estee Lauder Dominant (P, $30.00) is lighter. Estee Lauder Tumultuous Pink (P, $30.00) is slightly brighter. Too Faced Jelly Bean (P, $22.00) is redder. Charlotte Tilbury Velvet Underground (P, $32.00) is cooler-toned, lighter. MAC Pleasure Bomb (LE, $16.00) is more matte, no shimmer. Urban Decay Jilted (P, $22.00) is slightly redder. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Bobbi Brown Blush, Pink Kiss, Pink Nectar Lip Colors

Bobbi Brown Blush Lip Color ($26.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “pink, flesh tone.” It’s a dusty, light-medium pink with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage with a lightly creamy formula that glided across lips easily without tugging on the lip. It was light-to-medium in weight, and while it was mostly even, it was thick enough that if you pressed your lips together, sometimes you could see slight lines (but they were faint). This shade lasted for three and a half hours on me and was neither hydrating nor drying. Charlotte Tilbury Bitch Perfect (P, $32.00) is warmer. NARS Julie (P, $32.00) is lighter. NARS Brigitte (P, $32.00) is pinker. NARS Anita (P, $32.00) is cooler-toned. Givenchy Nude Guipure (106) (P, $36.00) is similar. Marc Jacobs Beauty Flirt (144) (LE, $30.00) is lighter. NARS Descanso (LE, $25.00) is warmer. NARS Montego Bay (P, $26.00) is darker. MAC Reel Sexy (LE, $16.00) is pinker, lighter. MAC Coral Bliss (P, $16.00) is lighter.
