For spring, Bobbi Brown released three, limited edition shades of her Sheer Lip Color formula in shades of pink. Just as a heads up, Pink Rose is part of the permanent range, but its availability in silver packaging is limited. If you’re not familiar with the formula, it’s described as a “lightweight formula” with an effortless wash of color plus nourishing shine.” As you might have guessed, it has sheerer color coverage and is supposed to be hydrating. Neither Pink Flush nor Pink Rose what I’d consider sheer or a wash of color, though you could certainly use the tiniest amount, but just passing the bullet across the top and bottom lips resulted in fairly opaque color coverage (which for some is a happy accident, and others, undesirable). Pink Gold was a more accurate representation of a sheer wash of color–noticeable color but sheer overall. The texture is the kind that feels almost stiff initially but as it warms up against the lip, it glides on better. It has a somewhat clingy feel on the lips, so it can catch on any dry flakes if you have them. There’s a slight sheen that wears away after an hour or so to a duller shine. They formula, on me, was only lightly hydrating.

Bobbi Brown Pink Flush Sheer Lip Color ($25.00 for 0.13 oz.) is described as a “medium tone pink.” It’s a medium, subtly cool-toned pink with a luminous sheen. I waffled between the undertone; it looked just slightly bluish against my skin tone. It had mostly opaque color coverage. This shade wore well for four hours on me. NARS Villa Lante (LE, $25.00) is lighter, cooler-toned. MAC What a Feeling! (LE, $20.00) is similar. Buxom Mistress (LE, $21.00) is warmer, brighter. Too Faced Razzle Dazzle Rose (P, $21.00) is similar. Urban Decay Obsessed (P, $22.00) is a touch lighter. Le Metier de Beaute Fiji (P, $32.00) is slightly darker. See comparison swatches.

Pink Gold Sheer Lip Color ($25.00 for 0.13 oz.) is described as a “light shimmer gold.” It’s a champagne and gold-shimmered, rosy brown. Applied, it added warmth to the natural lip color, but the primarily visible element was the pale bronze shimmer. It had a frostier finish, which looked a little clingy (and felt that way) with sheer color. This shade lasted two hours on me. Chanel Secret (85) (LE, $34.00) is similar applied. Tom Ford Beauty Frolic (P, $48.00) is warmer. MAC Shanghai Spice (LE, $16.00) is pinker. MAC Lush Amber (LE, $16.00) is similar applied. MAC Cusp of Dawn (LE, $16.00) is darker. Chanel Peregrina (P, $34.00) is lighter. Chanel Patchouli (LE, $34.00) is more shimmery. See comparison swatches.

Pink Rose Sheer Lip Color ($25.00 for 0.13 oz.) is described as a “blue tone pink.” It’s a medium-dark, rosy pink with subtle cool undertones and a subtle sheen. It had semi-opaque color coverage and wore well for four and a half hours. MAC Love Beam (LE, $20.00) is lighter. Guerlain Madame Reve (862) (LE, $49.50) is brighter. MAC Plumful (P, $16.00) is slightly plum. Bobbi Brown Wild Rose (LE, $24.00) is brighter, pinker. See comparison swatches.

Both of these look really fresh and pretty on you! 🙂

I like the colours, but I feel like I have similar shades already…either in gloss or lipstick form.

The shades are very pretty, look great on you and I think would also be good one me. The “stiffness” that you describe was a little worrying as was the fact that you found them only slightly hydrating. I will try the tester next time I’m at Nordstrtom because I do love the shades.

I like Pink Gold, and I think it’s a great shade for everyday wear. But, I fear I already have something that’s similar in my stash. I guess I’ll have to see it for myself before deciding.

Christine, would you please compare Pink Flush to Pink Glisten (Treatment Shine, now discontinued)? They look similar to me from pics, and Pink Glisten was a perfect shade of pink for me. Thanks. 🙂
