Bobbi Brown Raisin Lip Color

The Sultry Season: Bobbi Brown Raisin Lip Color

Bobbi Brown Raisin Lip Color ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted rusted red-brown. It’s described as a “rich plum brown,” but it’s so hard for me to see the plum in shades like this. Once you tell me, I feel like maybe I can see it, but then maybe I’m just trying too hard! Raisin is an opaque shade with excellent color coverage and feel–very smooth and clings without pulling moisture out of lips. It has a slight glossiness to it but no real shimmer.  It’s also scent- and taste-free!

Oh, and psst, it’s a dead ringer for Chanel’s Imperial Rouge Allure Laque in color (doesn’t have the fine gold shimmer, but color-wise…)!

Is this the right “plum” for you? Would you wear it?

The Sultry Season is a series of posts featuring deep, rich shades of brown, berry, plum, and wine lipsticks and lipglosses — just right for autumn — that runs through November 2010.
