Bobbi Brown Peach Sorbet Treatment Lip Shine SPF 15
Bobbi Brown Peach Sorbet Treatment Lip Shine SPF 15

Bobbi Brown Peach Sorbet Treatment Lip Shine SPF 15 ($23.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “pink coral.” I can’t say I’d agree with that, as it is a semi-sheer tangerine orange when it comes out of the tube (and even in it, it does not read pink coral). On lips, it doesn’t look tangerine or orange–it is closer to that pink coral description, which comes from the subtle natural pink tones of my inherent lip color. Since the product isn’t fully opaque, that pinkness comes through and “mixes” with the tangerine hue of the lipstick itself. (This is, of course, why lipsticks may look one way on someone and different on someone else.) Cle de Peau R9 is more opaque, slightly pinker. Burberry Devon Sunset is pinker, darker, and more opaque. MAC So Vain is more coral and opaque.

I like the soft, smooth, almost balm-like quality of the texture, as it slides across lips without tugging or skipping.  It’s a lightweight, comfortable formula to wear that doesn’t disappear as quickly as a lot of other similarly-textured products, though it’s not as long-wearing as a traditional lipstick.  For me, Peach Sorbet wore for three hours and needed a full reapplication after four hours. It’s a nicely moisturizing formula, and after wearing few of these over twelve hours, my lips did experience post-wear hydration.  It’s both scent- and taste-free, which is particularly noteworthy since sometimes lip products with sunscreen can have an odd taste.

Peach Sorbet

It is nicely moisturizing, yields good color, and feels comfortable and lightweight applied. This shade should work on most skin tones, partially because of the sheerness, the color ends up warming up lips and turning them a sort of coral-hue without actually being a coral color.

Bobbi Brown Orchid Pink Treatment Lip Shine SPF 15
Bobbi Brown Orchid Pink Treatment Lip Shine SPF 15

Bobbi Brown Orchid Pink Treatment Lip Shine SPF 15 ($23.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “light heather pink.” It’s a soft, pale pink with subtle cool undertones–it almost looks warm in the swatch but cooler on my lips. Guerlain Rose Piquant is a touch darker. Chanel Charme is darker and more shimmery. Guerlain Rose Innocent is similar, slightly paler. Estee Lauder Mauve Mirage is similar, perhaps a touch darker.

The formula is listed as “lightweight, soft shine lipstick that doubles as a rejuvenating moisture treatment.” It’s supposed to have both short-term and long-term hydration. It’s scent- and taste-free (no distinct SPF flavor!). It’s a soft, pliant formula that has some slip, but it doesn’t have any thick, creaminess, so it doesn’t slide all over the place.

The lipstick applies smoothly and evenly, and it deposits semi-opaque color without having to slather it on. The finish is lightly glossy, mega-shiny, but it doesn’t have a really wet look to it, so it’s not quite as glossy as a lipgloss. It’s moisturizing and feels good once applied, and while I did not wear this particular shade back-to-back, I did test out the wear of several shades back-to-back, and my lips were nicely hydrated post-wear. Orchid Pink wore for three hours when I tested it.

It is nicely moisturizing, yields good color, and feels comfortable and lightweight applied. This kind of shade will be most flattering on lighter skin tones, both warm and cool.

Bobbi Brown Treatment Lip Shine SPF 15

Treatment Lip Shine SPF15 is a lightweight, soft shine lipstick that doubles as a rejuvenating treatment. It instantly comforts dry, chapped lips and provides long-term moisturization with natural Cocoa and Shea Butters, Jojoba, Apricot Kernel and Avocado oils. Peptides, along with Vitamin C and Paracress, stimulate collagen production to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, while SPF15 helps prevent future sun damage. The result—Lips are healthier, smoother, softer and protected.

Edit: The last shade in the promotional image & the single shade featured in the second promotional image are both PINK GLISTEN. :)
