Bobbi Brown Miami Coral Rich Lip Color
Bobbi Brown Miami Coral Rich Lip Color ($23.00 for 0.13 oz.) is described as a “nectar.” It looks surprisingly orange in the tube, and even still when swatched (but to a lesser degree), but it’s much pinker on the lips. I actually went back and swatched this just prior to writing out the review, because I was like, “What? This doesn’t look right!” It’s more like a pink coral with warm, yellow undertones once applied. MAC Flamingo is less opaque, less creamy-looking and a touch darker. Chanel Flirt is similar but a little less pale. MAC Blossom Culture is several shades pinker. MAC Ever Hip is similar but a touch less pink.
Bobbi Brown’s Rich Lip Color formula is touted as long-wearing, moisturizing, and have “pure, crisp color.” When it first came out, I was pleasantly surprised; it’s a creamy yet lightweight lipstick that glides on easily and delivers opaque color coverage with very little product. It’s also hydrating enough that lips don’t feel dry after four to eight hours of wear. Not all shades wear the same, as lighter shades tend to fade away after four hours or so, while more intense shades (like a red) can wear six hours or longer. Miami Coral managed to make it four hours when I trialed it.
