Continuing with the Bobbi Brown series, I bring to you today, another lipstick from the Bobbi Brown Rich Lip Color range. Since I have already covered the overview of this lipstick range, I will elaborate more on this shade, its story and my experience, rather than about the range itself. If you would like to go through more details on the range – please refer to my reviews on Rose Blossom and Old Hollywood.
The shade I pick for review today is again part of Bobbi Brown’s top 10. Bobbi’s Top 10 refers to her selection of top 10 products, which as per her is “Everything you need to look and feel your best. From flawless skin to standout eyes, Bobbi’s Top 10 will take you from Pretty to Pretty Powerful.”
Rich Lip Color – In Bobbi’s own words – “I love this formula because it combines color-saturated coverage with an uber lightweight texture.” Bright, get-noticed colour. Lightweight, yet intense, Bobbi’s latest formula combines pigments with a clear base to deliver pure, crisp color with just one swipe. Plus, it’s creamy and moisturizing, so lips feel as good as they look. Featured in Real Simple magazine’s “5 Worth-it-splurges” (March 2012) and the Today Show for its long-lasting, non-drying formula as well as wide range of shades that complement all skin tones. These were launched in 12 colours but are now available in 21 colours.
$25.00 for 3.8 gm. I picked up online for about INR 1450.
The packaging is standard black case in a black cardboard box. If you like MAC packaging, you would like this. Yes, the shape is different – this has a square packaging rather than round. No indicator for the colour except the name written at the bottom – making it difficult to identify the colour without picking up each one and checking. So to ease this, I store them in the black cardboard box with the name featuring on top of the box.
Not only is this range part of the Bobbi Brown Top 1, it is Bobbi’s favorite colour from this range. In her own words “its my go-to shade. Heather Pink is a great everyday neutral that I can swipe on without a mirror.”
Heather Pink, as per the website, is a “red pink.”
I wouldn’t call it a red pink – its more like a dirty pink with the barest hint of plum in it. Looks a little bit like Mehr – less pinker and definitely not a matte. Its like a no-brainer colour – when you don’t know what to put on your lips, or when you have heavy eye makeup and want lips to be subtle – Heather Pink is the way to go! For me, it’s like a MLBB colour because its not really nude – there definitely is visible colour which is excellent for hiding lip pigmentation but still giving a natural look.
Would be perfect for working women – the one lipstick you carry in your bag at all times – is easy to apply, neutral colour, does not dry your lips!
The texture is same as Rose Blossom and Old Hollywood reviewed earlier – it glides on the lips giving full coverage in a single swipe. The product goes on like a gel – its not exactly creamy and neither is it buttery. Its smooth, very light and well pigmented with a semi-matte finish. It lasted about 5 hours on my lips.
To sum it up for you:
Pros of Bobbi Brown Rich Lip Color Lipstick in Heather Pink:
- Perfect office colour – subtle, no-brainer, easy to pair with any eye makeup, easy to apply.
- Exceptional lightweight texture.
- Does not bleed or feather.
- Does not dry the lips or accentuate the fine lines of my lips.
- Will suit most skin tones.
- Sturdy packaging – clicks shut – does not come loose in the bag!
- Excellent pigmentation.
- It has SPF 12!
Cons of Bobbi Brown Rich Lip Color Lipstick in Heather Pink:
- The price might be a con here but gets justified by the product quality and quantity both.
- Easily dupable colour.
- The product does not have any fragrance.
As a product, the lipstick is great. The only reason I deduct 0.5 point here is because its an easily dupable colour. If I had to pick one lipstick between Mehr and this one – I would probably take this for the texture, mattes are drying on my lips.
Have a great week ahead! Do share your experience with Bobbi Brown products and if you have visited the Saket outlet yet.
