Think of the forthcoming Bobbi Brown Nourishing Lip Colour Oil Infused Shine as a solid, coloured oil. It’s really very sumptuous and beautifully shiny without being glossy.
Although everything about it looks like lipstick, it’s obvious from the moment you put it on that it’s a rich formula so balmy it feels nothing like a regular lipstick. I loved the limited edition Bobbi Brown Lip Tint (from the Glow collection) and it’s a similar feel to that but this time with colour, and for a solid oil, there is quite a generous amount of colour, although it’s not a full saturation. So, ingredients in the Bobbi Brown Nourishing Lip Colour Oil Infused Shine include olive oil complex, avocado, babassu, jojoba and cocoa seed butter for an immediate hit of moisture.
The shades I have here are: Bright Raspberry, Desert Rose and Berry, but there will be 16 shades in total. The lip colours are £21 each, but I think they’ll go down quite quickly because it does feel as though you’re putting more of a ‘layer’ than you would with a gloss or regular lipstick. This is as near to perfect in a lip product as I think I’ve found (for me, anyway). It’s shiny, moisturising, feels gorgeous and balmy with the right ‘mwah’ slip to it and isn’t a full saturation shade. It’s interesting that without the pigment, it’s a clear oil base – the pigments are dissolved into it (got to admit, the Bobbi Brown production line is one I would LOVE to see up close!).
You can see more of the sheen finish now that I’ve used this one properly – the tints in the other shots are before they’ve been used and the ends look a bit dry, when in fact, this product is anything but! I’m really a fan of this already – it’s particularly good for older lips or creased lips because that sheen is all things flattering for a juicy, smooth lip look.
The Bobbi Brown Nourishing Lip Colour Oil Infused Shine is heading our way in April. I’ll flag them up when they arrive.
