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 Luxe Lip Color
Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Color

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. NARS Marlene (P, $34.00) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). MAC Habanero (P, $21.00) is darker, cooler (95% similar). NYX Pure Red (P, $6.00) is lighter (95% similar).

Bobbi Brown Imperial Red Luxe Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deep red with subtle, cooler, pink undertones and a glossy finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which did apply evenly and smoothly, so it looked like stain glass on the lips as there was still very rich, pronounced color on the lips. The texture was moderately emollient, so it didn’t tug while I applied, but it had more slip. I did not personally experience feathering or bleeding around the edges of my lips, but the consistency makes me think it might on others more prone to those things. This shade wore well for five and a half hours and left behind a strong stain. Make Up For Ever Raspberry Red (401) (P, $24.00) is warmer (95% similar). Chanel Memoire (224) (P, $37.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Bite Beauty Tannin (P, $24.00) is less glossy (95% similar). MAC Just a Bite (LE, $17.00) is less glossy (95% similar).

Bobbi Brown Bobbi Luxe Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium pinky-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a creamy finish. The texture was lightweight, smooth, and creamy, so it was easy to apply and comfortable to wear. It had nearly opaque pigmentation, which applied evenly, and lasted a solid four and a half hours on my lips. I felt the formula was lightly hydrating over time. Bobbi Brown Bahama Brown (P, $35.00) is darker, brighter, warmer (90% similar). Chanel Stunt (LE, $32.00) is cooler, glossier (90% similar). Tarte Honey (LE, $20.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar).

All three shades have been relased before, though only Bronze is part of the permanent range from what I could tell!

Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Color
Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Color

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. Urban Decay Tampered (P, $17.00) is darker (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Bobbi (P, $35.00) is lighter, more muted, cooler (90% similar). Burberry Fawn (05) (P, $34.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar).

Bobbi Brown Uber Rose Luxe Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark plum with subtle, cool undertones and a creamy, lightly glossy finish. This shade had a really smooth, creamy texture that applied rich, opaque coverage comfortably. It’s the kind of formula you can apply half-asleep, because it’s rather effortless. It had fully opaque pigmentation that went on evenly and lasted for five hours on me. Urban Decay Crisis (P, $17.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Mitchell (P, $35.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Plush (LE, $17.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar).

Urban Decay Sheer Rapture (P, $17.00) is lighter, less pigmented (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Bobbi Brown Tahiti Pink Luxe Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bright, medium pink with warmer undertones and a lightly glossy finish. The texture was more slippery compared to other shades, and it didn’t have the same cream-like look applied–this had subtle translucency and I would get “lines” if I pressed my lips together. I also noticed that color gathered in my lip lines right away, which did worsen over time. The color itself lasted for six hours, left a pinkish stain behind, and was hydrating. Make Up For Ever C306 (P, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar). Estee Lauder Jealous (P, $32.00) is cooler (90% similar). Estee Lauder Prowl (P, $32.00) is darker, more muted, warmer (90% similar).

Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Color
Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Color

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 Tantalize (Left) (LE, ) is lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Chella (LE, $5.00) is lighter (90% similar). Too Faced Melted Coral (P, $21.00) is lighter (90% similar). Bite Beauty Nearly Neon Peach (LE, $26.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar).

Bobbi Brown Uber Beige Luxe Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium brown with subtle warm, rosy undertones and a creamy finish. The consistency was lightweight, creamy, and felt hydrating on the lips. This shade was richly pigmented and covered the lips with smooth, even color. After two hours of wear, some color slid into my lip lines, though I could press my lips to smooth everything back into place. The color wore well for close to four and a half hours on me. Marc Jacobs Beauty No Angel (242) (P, $30.00) is less glossy (95% similar). Anastasia #11 (Vol. 1) (P, ) is cooler, less glossy (90% similar).

Bobbi Brown Bond Luxe Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deep, muted plum with subtle, warm undertones and a lightly glossy, cream finish. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy, a little thicker overall than the other two shades, which I think helped it fill in lip lines without emphasizing them. The lipstick had opaque color payoff that applied evenly, and the formula was moisturizing over the six hours it lasted for. There was a faint purplish stain left behind. MAC Viva Glam III (P, $17.00) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Mosh Pit (P, $17.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Shiseido Rouge Rum Punch (RD504) (P, $28.00) is lighter (85% similar).
