Bobbi Brown Rich Lip Color: Part 2

We’re back with the second set of five Bobbi Brown Rich Lip Color SPF 12 ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.). These shades are officially described as: Bare Pink (beige), Plum Rose (rich plum), Rose Blossom (pink rose), Heather Pink (dusty rose), and Mod Pink (bright pink). The Rich Lip Color is new lipstick formula for spring (and being added to the permanent range). According to Bobbi Brown, these are “lightweight, yet intense” and have “a clear base to deliver pure, crisp color with just one swipe.” The formula is also “creamy and moisturizing.” (Be sure to check out part one.)

I’ve road tested three shades from the line-up specifically for wear: Bikini Pink, Soft Coral, Old Hollywood. The idea is to test for wear and to do so with shades with different intensities. Bikini Pink is the lightest, while Soft Coral lies in the middle, and Old Hollywood, being a red, was likely to last the longest. The lighter colors inevitably fade/last less than deeper shades, as deeper shades often stain, which is why I try to test from both ends of a spectrum when it comes to a new lipstick formula.

  • Bare Pink is a pink-tinged peach-beige with a creamy finish and soft shine. It remindedme of Guerlain’s Guerlinade, without the shimmer, and perhaps a touch darker. It is also lighter and less orange in compraison to Korres #34 Nude Guava.
  • Plum Rose is a plummy pink with a creamy finish and soft shine. It is similar to Hourglass Nocturnal, just a little less plum, along with Maybelline Bit of Berry (but also less plum).
  • Rose Blossom is a brighter plum pink–it is very similar to Plum Rose, but it’s a touch brighter. It is less plum in comparison to both Houglass Nocturnal and Maybelline Bit of Berry, but it is also brighter.
  • Heather Pink is a dusty, muted pink–a little beige-brown in it. It is a little pinker than Benefit Lala Land.
  • Mod Pink is a cool-toned, brighter medium pink with blue undertones. It is similar to Dolce & Gabbana Splendid and Lancome Pink Sapphire.

my thoughts on the formula: These are really comfortable to wear,with their semi-matte finishes, creamy but lightweight texture, and rich color coverage.  Every shade was opaque and needed very little product to achieve full color coverage.  They are also scent- and taste-free, which should appeal to some.  Wear was anywhere from four to six hours, with deeper shades like Old Hollywood lasting a full six and beginning to fade after that.  Lighter shades hung on for about four hours.

  • Product: 30/30
  • Value: 8/10
  • Ease of Use: 4/5
  • Packaging: 5/5

final thoughts: I actually really liked these; I love how pigmented they are, but they’re creamy without actually being creamy.  They have the feel, glide, and finish of creamier formulas, but there is very little slip and very little product is on the lips, giving a rather featherweight feel.  These colors do not have a full matte finish, but they still wear well–no clinging or seeping into lip lines.

Oh my god they’re all gorgeous! At the beginning only two colours were intereting, but now I almost love them all after your swatches, the texture, the colours, everything is perfect, I’m gonna go buying them hahahhaha

Your teeth are so pretty and white. Do you use anything to whiten your teeth? I thought you may include it in your FAQ, but I didn’t see anything about it. BTW, your reviews and makeup looks are excellent! I just wanted to let you know I appreciate everything you do and all your hard work! You’re awesome!

Hmm, wonder if Heather Pink is suitable for cold complexions? I tried to get to the BB counter at the weekend, but it was so full around I could hardly get a glimpse at the products. BB is doing well in Germany!

Thanks for your review! I will definitely check these out the next chance I get!

I realize this very subjective, but why do you like these better than MUFE’s Rouge Artist Intense lipsticks?

OMG loveeeee these they all look amazing on you do they smell old or like those drugstore lipsticks I love how chanel has a little scent but not nasty YSl have a nice scent too but not that plasticy smell like estee lauder too

I own hardly anything from Bobbi Brown… don’t know why really, but these look beautiful. My favorite lipstick formulas are Cle de Peau Extra Silky and Giorgio Armani Rouge G, how do you think these compare? My lips flake easily πŸ™

i love heather pink on you and im assuming we might both look good in it since we are kinda the same tone ( ive got yellow undertones but am a medium to medium deep). Thanks for another great review.

Gorgeous colours!!
I’ve got a lemming for at least 6 of these shades now! A few from your previous reviews/swatches and photos and a couple from this post also!

i can’t wait to try heather pink and bare pink. Are any of the 12 shades comparable to mac? What about mod pink to NARS shciap? I really love that color but the formular of nars lippies do not work for me πŸ™

Thank you so much for the swatches. You look great with them too.
I am liking mod pink, heather pink, bare pink
I wonder which will be closer to MAC 4N – heather pink or bare pink? I have been searching for a shade close to MAC 4N.
Thank you.

Just bought Mod Pink on an impulse buy when I went to purchase Guava and Sweet Nectar. In the tube it looks like every other pink, but swatched is just a beautiful spring/summer pink, bright and refeshing without being too much so.

I picked up Bare Pink today at my local CCO for only $16, I love this color and love that it has SPF 12. Its an amazing nude color πŸ™‚
