I’m always drawn to the Bobbi Brown counter. Everything is so lovely and wearable, especially for those of us who like our make up on the natural neutral side of things. The textures are lovely, the smell is just right (or non existant) and the packaging is clean and modern. I was kind of excited to try her new Creamy Matte Lip Color (using the US spelling of “color” as that is how BB is spelling it…) as once again, the shades looked so wearable and, well, pretty. I have been obsessing about a raspberry lip colour and had planned on buying Bobbi Brown Sheer Color Lip Gloss in Popsicle- it really is the perfect shade of raspberry! But then I tried Creamy Matte Lip Color in True Pink and was sold.
The texture is, well, creamy and matte. I would not recommend applying this right from the lipstick itself as you would a regular lipstick. It’s very thick and concentrated, and works best applied with a brush, or even fingers. What I love about it is that it takes on the look of a stain- but again, only if applied with a light hand. If you lips are the dry or flaky, do not use this lipstick until you have exfoliated and moisturised those babies! I love the subtle shot of colour Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color gives you when worn alone, and the lovely punch of colour when you wear it under Bobbi Brown Sheer Color Lip Gloss in Popsicle! The soft pretty pink is fun, pretty and flattering.
Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color ($24) and Bobbi Brown Sheer Color Lip Gloss in Popsicle ($23) are available at Bobbi Brown counters and online.
