Bobbi Brown Pink Sorbet Rich Color Lipgloss

Bobbi Brown Pink Sorbet Rich Color Lipgloss ($23.00 for 0.24 fl. oz.) is described as a “soft pink raspberry.” I’m not seeing raspberry; there are none of those berry tones you’d expect to see. This is more like strawberry milkshake pink if we’re going to go for a berry concoction as a descriptor! I’d describe as a soft, light-medium pink with subtle yellow undertones and white shimmer. It does bear some resemblance to Angel Pink, which I reviewed previously, except this has shimmer, is a touch lighter, and is pinker. The only other shade that seemed similar was Chanel COnfidence, which is darker and sheerer.

Bobbi Brown describes this formulas as having “the full color coverage of a lipstick” but with “The shine of a gloss.” It’s also supposed to “moisturize, condition, and last throughout the day without feathering.” Pink Sorbet has great color coverage–it really delivers on the full color coverage one is expecting. Despite its lighter hue, it applies evenly for the most part with very slight color lines if you press your lips together. The texture is thicker than a balm, but thinner than the average gloss–it has some slip, but it doesn’t slide all over the place. It’s non-sticky and wore for four hours without drying my lips out. Like the brand’s other glosses, it is mint-scented.

Bobbi Brown Pink Peony Rich Lip Color

Bobbi Brown Pink Peony Rich Lip Color ($23.00 for 0.13 oz.) is described as a “medium-toned pink.” It’s a medium-dark watermelon pink with opaque color coverage and a natural sheen. Bite Beauty Rose is more orange, darker. MAC Full Speed is a bit darker. Bobbi Brown Mod Pink is pinker. Dolce & Gabbana Splendid is slightly pinker. VS Be Mine is darker, brighter.

Pink Peony wore for five and a half hours and needed a reapplication after six and a half hours.  It feels lightweight, despite its creamy consistency, and comfortable to wear.  I never have any post-wear problems–my lips don’t feel dry or chapped even after wearing one of these for six hours or longer.  My experience with Pink Peony was true-to-formula, which is supposed to be long-wearing, moisturizing, and full color coverage.  This is my favorite lipstick formula that Bobbi Brown makes, and I’m so glad to see her continually add new shades to the range.
