Bobbi Brown Retro Coral, Pink Guava, Pale Coral Luxe Lip Colors

Bobbi Brown Retro Coral Luxe Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “pale pink coral.” It’s a medium coral with a hint of pink and warm undertones paired with a luminous sheen. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a creamy, moderately slippery consistency, so you could see “lines” if you pressed your lips together at times. The texture is lightweight and comfortable to wear, while the color lasted for four and a half hours on me and was hydrating over time. Buxom Two-Timer (P, $21.00) is glossier (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Understudy (114) (DC, $30.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Dreaming Dahlia (LE, $17.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Pink Nectar (P, $26.00) is more muted, cooler (90% similar). MAC Ethereal Orchid (LE, $30.00) is more muted, less pigmented (90% similar). Givenchy Brun Createur (103) (P, $36.00) is cooler (90% similar). NARS Juliette (P, $32.00) is brighter, less glossy (90% similar). MAC Style Surge (P, $22.00) is warmer (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Bare Peach (23) (P, $50.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Too Faced Coral Fire (P, $22.00) is cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Topanga (P, $5.00) is cooler (90% similar).

Bobbi Brown Pink Cloud, Brocade, Plum Brandy Luxe Lip Colors

Bobbi Brown Pink Cloud Luxe Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “pale pink.” It’s a light-medium pink with subtle, neutral-to-warm undertones and a light shine. It had mostly opaque color coverage with a moderately slippery texture–it does move around more than other shades, even if it is very comfortable on. I found this shade to be more high maintenance as a result, though, as you could easily see “lines” if you pressed your lips together and some color pulled into lip lines over the four hour wear time. Tom Ford Beauty Addison (P, $35.00) is lighter, less glossy (90% similar). Estee Lauder Impulsive (P, $30.00) is lighter (90% similar). Estee Lauder Mischievous Rose (P, $30.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Naked Dream (LE, $17.00) is lighter, less glossy (90% similar). NARS Vanessa (P, $32.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). MAC Pretty Natural (LE, $17.00) is warmer, less glossy (85% similar). Colour Pop Fame (LE, $5.00) is lighter (90% similar). Guerlain Rosy Boop (369) (P, $37.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Last Call (LE, $5.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). MAC Boca (LE, $17.00) is less glossy (85% similar). MAC Dream Daze (LE, $22.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). NARS Last Tango (LE, $26.00) is darker (85% similar). Givenchy Nude Guipure (106) (P, $36.00) is warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Ace (LE, $5.00) is lighter (80% similar).

Bobbi Brown Spring Pink, Posh Pink, Raspberry Pink Luxe Lip Colors

Bobbi Brown Spring Pink Luxe Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “true pink.” It’s a bright, light-medium pink with subtle, warmer undertones and a creamy finish. It had mostly opaque coverage, but this shade had more slip than the average shade in this formula, so it didn’t apply as evenly as anticipated–there were very subtle streaks/lines when I pressed my lips together. The formula was comfortable to wear and moderately moisturizing, while the color lasted well for four and a half hours on me. Buxom Mistress (LE, $21.00) is lighter (95% similar). YSL Caress Pink (9) (P, $34.00) is lighter, glossier (95% similar). Estee Lauder Ambitious Pink (P, $30.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (90% similar). Bite Beauty Damask (LE, $28.00) is lighter, brighter, glossier (90% similar). Chanel Edith (424) (P, $36.00) is lighter (90% similar). Guerlain Geraldine (77) (P, $55.00) is brighter, glossier (90% similar). Givenchy Hibiscus Exclusif (302) (P, $36.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Guerlain Georgia (P, $55.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Nouvelle Vogue (LE, $17.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Givenchy Rose Taffetas (201) (P, $36.00) is lighter (90% similar). Bite Beauty Sweety (LE, $24.00) is lighter (85% similar). NARS Marisa (P, $32.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
