Bobbi Brown Pink Nude Luxe Lip Color
Bobbi Brown Pink Nude Luxe Lip Color

Bobbi Brown Pink Nude Luxe Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “pale pink nude.” It’s a muted, medium pinky-peach with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It was moderately creamy with some slip (but it didn’t slide around) that applied with mostly opaque color. The lipstick wore well for four and a half hours with a little color that gathered into lip lines after three hours of wear, but it was nicely hydrating while worn.

Bobbi Brown Almost Bare Luxe Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “soft beige.” It’s a muted, medium peachy-brown with warm, orange undertones and a natural sheen. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a soft, creamy, glide-on consistency. The color wore well for four hours, but I had some color pull into lip lines after three hours of wear. The formula was comfortable to wear and very moisturizing. MAC Cozy Up (LE, $19.00) is warmer (95% similar). Estee Lauder Covetous Nude (P, $32.00) is lighter, less glossy (95% similar).

Bobbi Brown Mod Luxe Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “pale yellow beige.” It’s a light, yellowed peach with warm undertones and a cream finish with light shine. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a creamy consistency, but it was very unforgiving. It seemed to exacerbate the natural texture of my lips and made them look uneven, almost dry. This was one of the worst-performing shades in the range for me. The color lasted for three hours and was lightly hydrating. MAC Nearly Nude (LE, $19.00) is darker (95% similar).

FORMULA SUMMARY | Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is supposed to have one-stroke color coverage with a hydrating, smoothing formula, and “nourishing shine.” I was impressed with the formula as a whole, as the majority of the shades were very pigmented in one pass with a creamy consistency that glided on easily. There’s a richness to the texture that does feel more “luxe” in a way. The natural-to-luminous shine level gives lips a smoother, plumper look, while the formula itself is hydrating and many shades are longer-wearing. I noticed that the lighter shades tended to perform more poorly relative to more light-medium to medium-dark-hued shades. There was a faint floral scent (that was a surprise, I wish they had gone the unscented!), but I didn’t have issues with taste and found it very subtle on (it’s no Dior/Chanel-level scent!). In general, I like Bobbi Brown’s lipstick formulas, and this one feels creamier and more hydrating than others, but for pigmentation, you can’t go wrong with this or the Rich Lip Color formula.

They are nice! I like BB’s lip products in general, so like when Bite Beauty releases their LE monthly shade at $36 vs. regularly line at $28 (or so, I can’t recall exactly), I’m not 110% sure the difference is worth the price, but they are nice.

Thanks for the quick review on these, Christine. I am notoriously bad for gravitating to the same old lip colours…over and over again and such is the case here. I’m a total sucker for shades like Pink Nude and Mod, but have a number of the dupes. I might grab Pink Nude just because of it’s minor differences to Bite Hazelnut and to give the formula a go, but the rest .. I’m guessing I have gobs of dupes in the plum department too.

I came here to read your review for Pink Nude, but I don’t want a color darker than Real Redhead.. and then I saw your comment about EL Covetous Nude being slightly lighter than Almost Bare, and less glossy! Now I think I would prefer the EL lipstick, it’s cheaper and I already love that formula. lol

Pink Nude is truly a lovely shade. I really like it! It and Almost Bare do give a posh, pillowy look to the lips. On the other hand, Mod is NOT my cup of tea! Too light for one thing, performance the other.

I love these colours – I’ll have to check Pink Nude and Almost Bare out to see if they work on me, and I remember there were more that caught my eye in your original quick look post!
How similar are these to the Rich Lip Colour ones, because everyone raves about those, but I didn’t get along with the one I tried (Soft Coral) at all! It went on wierdly patchy and got worse over time.

Nice! The formula looks good. I have not bought a BB lipstick in years because they were not creamy enough. I think I’ll pick up a mid-tone cool shade from this collection. Thanks!
