Bobbi Brown Baby Peach & Atomic Orange Luxe Lip Colors

Bobbi Brown Baby Peach Luxe Lip Color
Bobbi Brown Baby Peach Luxe Lip Color

Bobbi Brown Baby Peach Luxe Lip Color ($35.00 for 013 oz.) is described as a “bright peach coral.” It’s a light-medium orange with warm, yellow undertones and a soft, glossy sheen. It had good pigmentation, though not fully opaque, with a more emollient, slightly slippery consistency. The color lasted for four hours on me and was nicely hydrating. I thought it was going to slip into lip lines, but it didn’t! Guerlain Peach Satin (540) (LE, $37.00) is darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Oversized (DC, $5.00) is darker (90% similar).

Bobbi Brown Atomic Orange Luxe Lip Color ($35.00 for 013 oz.) is described as a “bright yellow orange.” It’s a vibrant, medium orange with warm, red undertones and a natural finish. It was intensely pigmented and had full color coverage. The consistency is creamy, light-to-medium in weight, comfortable wear with a hydrating formula that lasted for five and a half hours on me. Bite Beauty Nearly Neon Orange (LE, $26.00) is lighter (95% similar). Bite Beauty Tourne (P, $24.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Fashion Nomad (LE, $19.00) is less glossy (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.

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.

Bobbi Brown Retro Coral Luxe Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “pale pink coral.” It’s a medium coral with a hint of pink and warm undertones paired with a luminous sheen. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a creamy, moderately slippery consistency, so you could see “lines” if you pressed your lips together at times. The texture is lightweight and comfortable to wear, while the color lasted for four and a half hours on me and was hydrating over time. Buxom Two-Timer (P, $21.00) is glossier (95% similar).

Bobbi Brown Pink Guava Luxe Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “pink tangerine.” It’s a bright, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had nearly full color coverage, though there was just a little translucency to the color still. The texture was light-to-medium in weight, creamy, and comfortable on. It applied with smooth, even coverage, and the color wore well for five and a half hours. I found the formula moderately hydrating while worn.

Bobbi Brown Pale Coral Luxe Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “midtone coral cream.” It’s a light-medium peach-orange with warm undertones and a creamy, lightly glossy finish. The texture was quite creamy with light-to-medium weight to it, so it was thick enough where you could see “lines” if you pressed your lips together, and the more emollient consistency made it harder to apply evenly. It had good pigmentation, though, and lasted for four hours and was lightly hydrating. Colour Pop Oversized (DC, $5.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Sushi Kiss (P, $17.50) is less glossy (95% similar). Colour Pop Peppermint (LE, $5.00) is lighter (90% similar). Bite Beauty Nearly Neon Peach (LE, $26.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar).
