There are lots of new lip products coming from Bobbi Brown over the next few weeks and they’re all ultra-pigment, power lip players. Much of the newness is devoted to matte textures although there are also 9 shine shades.
The Luxe Matte Lip Colours, £28 (HERE) are the most intriguing. They’re so, so matte that they feel minutely granular as you apply and yet are weightless once on the lip. The colour lays down an immediate and highly pigmented stain – they’re really quite extraordinary and the sort of lipstick that makes say wow out loud! You need one slick of this (if you like a matte finish) and you can forget it and go. It lasted undisturbed on me for a good couple of hours – also, to note, when I applied to my bottom lip first, it didn’t readily transfer when I did the mwah so I needed to put a coat on the top lip too. That gives you the measure of its staying power – your wine glass is safe.
Shades from bottom to top are: Tawny Pink, Razzberry, Fever Pitch, Rebel Rose and Red Carpet (my test shade – even I love it and I’m scared of a red lip!).
Next up are the glossies. The Liquid Lip High Shines (£28) launch on 4th October and remind me of the Too Faced Melted Glosses – super high pigment in a lacquer finish. If you like a strong colour with plenty of shine, you have no further to look.

I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before...
There are 9 shades, and the colours I have to show you from bottom to top are: Camisole, Barely Nude, Mod Pink, Tahiti Pink.
Finally, the Luxe Liquid Lip Velvet Matte, £28, actually my least favourite of the newness. I found them messy even in the swatch but if you’re a whizz with this liquid velvet texture, I’ve got not doubt that you will love them for their extreme intensity. They promise a 12 hour wear (no, I couldn’t stand the feel of them so 2 minutes was a challenge, never mind 12 hours!) and have mango extract for softening (although I note that they don’t say ‘moisturising’).
The shades I have from bottom to top are: Brocade, Follow Your Rose and Your Majesty. These launch on 4th October too.
I think the 18 shade Luxe Matte Lipsticks HERE are a revolutionary texture for mattes (the formula is currently a Bobbi Brown exclusive but I think we could reasonably expect that it might filter through the Estee Lauder group eventually) – possibly the lipstick of your life. If you’ve never ventured to the matte side before, now is the time.
