Bobbi Brown Lip Products Kind of Rock and I Have Swatches to Prove It!

Bobbi Brown Lip Products

I am becoming something I never thought I would be: a Bobbi Brown fan. Do people who like heavy metal music and zombie movies become Bobbi Brown fans? Apparently yes.

No really, I always considered Bobbi Brown makeup to be nice, but you know, meant for super conservative makeup wearers or those over age 40. Um, then I realized I AM age 40. But honestly, just because something is marketed to be more “natural” or for “older” women (I REFUSE to say I am “older” by the way, considering I still think of myself as being 22) doesn’t mean it’s not great for people of all ages. Look past the marketing and all that stuff, and focus on the actual product inside.

I was recently at the nearest Cosmetics Company Outlet (CCO) in Napa and there was a slew of Bobbi Brown items. Nothing much else interested me there so I was playing around with some of her items and was super impressed with the payoff and shades. So what the hell, I bought some!

This is going to sound asinine but Rich Color Gloss in Pink Gold might be one of the best lip gloss shades I have ever tried! I know, “Yeah right” you are thinking. “She JUST became a Bobbi Brown fan and miraculously found her favorite shade ever just like that?” But yeah, I kinda did.

First off the texture is thick but not sticky. You actually don’t need as much product as you might think to get great coverage. I somehow thought it was going to be really sheer. Wrong. These actually have full coverage like a lipstick, but are super glossy like a gloss. It feels really moisturizing and as mentioned, no stickiness at all. There is a peppermint scent to it.

This shade is a gorgeous pink gold that is so shimmery, shiny and flattering. I am in love.

Creamy Lip Colors are a lipstick infused with Shea butter and other properties to make them very moisturizing and smooth. They come in a nice black tube and the lipstick has an angled slant for easy application.

Washed Seashell is a seriously pretty and flattering shimmery pink nude. Ugh I love it, and can tell this is going to be a go-to shade for me. Would look especially pretty with a smoky eye or butt-load of dark eyeliner.

Ok now for a little warmth, but still pinky and nude-esque. Lip Colors are a lipstick that contain vitamins E & C and beeswax for moisture and they have a soft matte finish. Not matte as in flat, they do have a slight shine to them and feel more soothing than a typical MATTE matte.

Nude Beige is a warm, medium pink/beige shade. Love this shade on me, and it’s nice and pigmented. It does have a very “lipstick-y” scent and taste to it, which sometimes I don’t like and sometimes I don’t mind. I like it in a way because it reminds me of being a young teen and trying on lipstick for the first time. Every lipstick in the 80’s had that strong lipstick scent and taste.

    I have loved Bobbi Brown since I WAS 22…lol. I have always tended to like products marketed to “older” women, I think they are better quality. I guess older buyer require more quality for their money.

    That Nude Beige lippie is outstanding!

  • January 24, 2013

    I have a lot of Bobbi Brown shadows and I love the grand majority of them. The gel liner is part of my daily routine too. I haven’t tried so many of the lip products, but I do really like this Razzberry shade in their creamy matte lip color line! Maybe I’ll go ahead and get one sometime soon.

    I’ve been eying Bobbi Brown lip products for ages but I could never justify buying them because I already own 1 million lipsticks but the shades you picked look absolutely stunning…I might need to try them after all 😉 xx

  • January 24, 2013

    I’m in my 20s and I like Bobbi Brown. The overall quality of the products is good, but not as unique as other brands (that’s what I struggle with for this brand). And I’ve also read some Bobbi Brown beauty books, and I really love her reflections on the idea of beauty, not just what she has to say about products.

  • January 24, 2013

    I’ve never tried Bobbi Brown, but Nude Beige looks so pretty!

  • January 24, 2013

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE Bobbi Brown lip glosses, if you love reds Black Ruby is gorgeous!

  • January 24, 2013

    That pink gold gloss is GORGEOUS!!

  • January 24, 2013

    These all look gorgeous on you! I’ve been hawking so much BB stuff for so long…I think this might push me over the edge.

  • January 24, 2013

    Wait, Kelly you are 40? No way. Ok, if you really are..then OMG you look fabulous for 40.

      Yep I am 40 and 1/2 now, haha. Thanks! My family all look younger than they really are but also I’ve been wearing sunscreen religiously since like age 22 or 23. :)

    I’ve used her concealer and foundation before and they work really well. Or, I should say, my mom has decided to put makeup on me and that’s what she uses. I don’t think I’ve tried any of the lip products but they do look really good. I don’t know that I’ll be buying any though, I mostly just stick to colorless or lightly tinted balms. I probably don’t fit the image for her target demographic myself, considering I’m 24 and have a green-highlighted pixie cut and dress like a rainbow puked on me.

  • January 24, 2013

    These are really pretty shades. I actually don’t think I own a single BB product, but I would be happy to – it all seems quite classic and nice.

  • January 24, 2013

    Loving that creamy lip color! So pretty for Spring!

  • January 24, 2013

    I’ve been a longtime fan of BB’s lip colors. There are so many flattering colors for my super fair skin. Also, her eye liner gels are fantastic.

  • January 24, 2013

    I don’t necessarily mind that her products tend towards the nude (not my thing, but everyone needs nude staples in their stash), it’s that they all seem to lean so warm. I’m pretty cool toned so it’s harder for me to find things that will work. Maybe as I settle down I’ll appreciate her stuff more :)

  • January 24, 2013

    Hah I’m the opposite, I’m 23 and already starting to think of myself like I’m 40. I’ve never gotten into Bobbi Brown, it seems like the prices are really high and I don’t often see any “must haves”… but it does seem like there’s lots of good solid staples. Anyway, glad you found some new favorites :)

    I had the exact same prejudiced against bobbi brown products, until I tried some of the products and realised how good they actually are!
    I don’t remember the name of the glosses I have but they are of the best glosses I have ever tried (and have tried a lot!)
    Full coverage without stickiness!

  • January 25, 2013

    You are 40?! Well, still looking fabulous then! Or maybe I am just a young lady who thinks fourty is old although it’s not….
    Anyway, gorgeous lippies! The nude beige lipcolor looks like absolute heaven. So creamy and intensly pigmented… Must visit a Bobbi Brown counter soon!

    I’m such a gloss girl…so I LOVE that Pink Gold gloss.

  • January 26, 2013

    I know this is gonna date me, but I cant get into her line. ITs the fact for so long in the 90s she preached no shimmer no sparkle, and few years down the road here she is with sparkle. I cant deal with such a hypocrite. Im sure her stuff is great but Ill never touch it.

  • January 26, 2013

    Washed Seashell = *swoon worthy*. My “natural” lip look is usually rosy red lip blotted and coated with balm. I am really feeling Washed Seashell though…and yes, I can totally see it rocked with a nice wing of black liner and bold lashes! Really beautiful. 😀 Definitely wanting to try it! 😀

  • January 27, 2013

    If you can find it (my Bobbi rep said its being discontinued) try the shimmer wash shadow in fawn. It is the most gorgeous color. Her cream shadows (not the metallic ones) are my go to when I don’t feel like dirtying brushes.
