Bobbi Brown Nude Rose Rich Lip Color ($23.00 for 0.13 oz.) is described as a “medium-tone rose brown.” That description is apt–it’s muted rosy pink with hints of beige-brown that downplay its color and make it more of a neutral shade. theBalm Strawberry is more coral. CoverGirl Heavenly is similar, less pink. Guerlain Cherry Blossom is sheerer and shimmered. Bobbi Brown Heather Pink is browner.

The color coverage was excellent, with full, opaque color in one pass. This formula is supposed to be long-wearing, opaque, and moisturizing, and I could find no fault with Nude Rose, which wore for five and a half hours for me when I trialed it last week. The consistency is creamy enough to enable an easy glide across the lips without pulling or tugging, but it feels thin and lightweight when worn–it doesn’t slip around and cause build-up or lines on the lips if you press them together. It kept my lips moisturized during wear, and my lips didn’t feel worse for the wear afterward either.

I am LoVinG every one of these BB lipsticks that you have swatched so far. Just when i think that i’m sold on one of the colours, you go and swatch another fabulous, incredibly flattering lippie. I will probably wind up with them all!!! Great job (as always), Christine.

Do you think if I have Party Alice from the winter Bobbi Brown collection, I should pass this?
I compared both swatches on the lipsticks and just saw that party alice is a tiny bit darker.

That shade looks great on you and I think it would look great on lots of us with very different colouring too! I don’t usually go for something so opaque when I wear a shade so close to my lip colour but I think I’m going to check this one out.

I was wondering if you would review this shade, since you reviewed the others. I was hoping you wouldn’t, because then I would not see the swatches and therefore would not want it! Hahaha

Thank you Cristine , this colour is what i have looked for . Is it already possible to find it in the shops? i live in Italy and here it’s really difficult to find Bobbi Brown products i am going to buy it online cause i can’t miss this wonderful lip color

The Rose Gold collection has not yet com out in the UK, but when it does this is coming home with me, probably with some fellow lipstick friends ๐Ÿ™‚ Not that I can really justify buying them, but the colours are gorgeous, incredibly wearable and I loooooove BB’s Rich Lip Colour formula! Tis one of my favourites.

Nude Rose (as well as Guava) from Rich Lip Color are fantastic! They’re as good as you claimed they would be. With Nude Rose I was debating whether to buy MAC Vivva Glam V instead but decided to go into something more visible. Thank you very much for all the work you put into Temptalia – you make my beauty shopping simple (even my husband was shocked lately – It literally took me 20 minutes to go into 3 shops and test 4 shades and buy 2 lipsticks ๐Ÿ™‚


i know i’m way late but i’ve been trying to get nude rose and soft rose from bobbi brown and they told me that it was a limited edition ๐Ÿ™ not available any more
