Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color Launches


Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color Launches

Creamy Matte Lip Color is a revolutionary matte lipstick formula that uniquely combines the look of a classic matte lip with incredible wearability. Creamy, moisturizing and highly pigmented, it glides comfortably onto lips but feels extremely lightweight. Not to mention, it’s got great staying power too.

Creamy Matte Lip Color is formulated with an exceptionally high pigment load for intense color payoff in a single application. Traditionally, matte lipsticks are not offered in such a varied shade range because the more pigment that exists within the formula, the drier it tends to be.

Creamy Matte Lip Color provides intense moisturization to the lips. This lip color is formulated with special emollients and soft waxes that form a conditioning barrier to lock in moisture.

Creamy Matte Lip Color’s unique formula is designed to slightly soften with the warmth of the lips, providing full color release. Skin comfortable film formers and an extremely high concentration of pigments contribute to advanced wear that will not transfer, smear or feather for up to 8 hours.

  • Calypso Pink coral
  • Crushed Plum Rich berry
  • Jenna Bright orange red
  • Latte Warm pink beige
  • Pale Peach Pale peach coral
  • Pink Lily Bright pink violet
  • Razzberry Medium red berry
  • Red Carpet Rich bright red
  • Tawny Pink Pink mauve
  • True Pink Medium neutral pink

Bobbi Brown Uber Nude Rich Lip Color

Bobbi Brown Uber Nude Rich Lip Color
Bobbi Brown Uber Nude Rich Lip Color

Bobbi Brown Uber Nude Rich Lip Color ($24.00 for 0.13 oz.) is described as a “medium rose.” It’s a subtly rose-tinted medium brown with a natural sheen. MAC Spice is very comparable, perhaps a touch rosier. MAC Viva Glam VI is shimmery. MAC Mocha is warmer. Guerlain Galante is redder.

The Rich Lip Color formula is described as lightweight, rich in color, moisturizing, creamy, and long-lasting.  It’s definitely one of my top lipstick formulas.  There’s a nice creaminess that enables even, glide-on color with opaque color coverage, but it doesn’t slip and slide all over.  It doesn’t feel or look thick, which also means you don’t have to worry about the color bunching up on itself.  This shade wore six hours on me, and my lips felt hydrated even after I removed the product.  It’s also scent- and taste-free, which is great for those more sensitive to scents.

Dior Diva Diorific Lipstick

A Holiday Red That Wears and Wears

Dior Diva (038) Diorific Lipstick ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a rich orange-red with warm undertones and a natural sheen. Lancome Red Haute is more orange. theBalm Vanilly is a little lighter. Hourglass Raven is more orange. Guerlain Genna is also more orange. Edward Bess Midnight Bloom is more blue-toned. Guerlain Habit Rouge is similar. MAC Charmed, I’m Sure is slightly bluer.

It’s full formula name is “Rouge Haute Couleur Longue Tenue” or “Long-Wearing True Color Lipstick.”  Diva is rich in pigment and applies with full color coverage with one pass.  The texture is just creamy enough to enable good glide across the lips without pulling or tugging, but it doesn’t move around on the lips and almost feels like a matte lipstick.  This particular shade lasted nearly eight hours, and while it wore for hours, it did not dry my lips out at all.  It has a lightly floral scent.

Color Club First Looks Nail Lacquer

How Deep is Your Navy Blue?

Color Club First Looks Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “blue green metallic.” This is an incredibly rich, inky blackened navy blue with bluish-teal micro-shimmer. The way the shimmer is catches the light makes the polish look like it’s glowing on the nails. NARS Night Flight has larger blue shimmer. MAC Biker Blue is bluer with larger shimmer. Rescue Beauty Lounge Under the Stars has much larger shimmer (more like particle glitter) that is sparse.

It’s completely opaque after two coats. The formula was not too thick or too thin, so it leveled and applied evenly and easily without pooling along the edges. The drying time was about average, but it did have a natural shine to the dried result.  As you can see from this week, I’ve been doing some wear-testing of Color Club polishes, and First Looks was another one I specifically tested for wear.  It wore for a full seven days without chipping and only had minor tip wear at the end of the week.
