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!

ULTA's 21 Days

ULTA’s 21 Days event is still going on — today’s deal is 50% off Urban Decay Afterglow Blush, which is a total steal. It’s a great formula (reviews here), and my personal favorites are Rapture, Bittersweet, and Fetish. Several shades are out of stock online, but there are a few shades left – and anyone who planned to shop in-store should be able to take advantage of the deal there.
