Bobbi Brown Vibrant Violet is a very cool-toned, medium-dark berry with a matte finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $37.00 and contains 0.15 oz.
Bobbi Brown Vibrant Violet Luxe Matte Lip Color ($37.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a bright, deep magenta with cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had good color coverage, though it needed a second layer for true opaque coverage. The lipstick was smooth, dense but not so firm that it became painful to apply. It distributed color evenly in a single layer, didn't emphasize my lip lines, and was comfortable to wear as it was very lightweight. The color stayed on well for seven and a half hours and left behind a strong stain. The formula was neither drying nor hydrating, though it clung to my lips a bit more noticeably after five hours of wear.
