Hello lovely ladies,
After reviewing the shade “Hibiscus” from this line, I have the shade “Hot Rose” up for review. My friend from US helped me with this huge Sephora haul. It was so much fun to be able to pick whatever I wanted from the Sephora site – a dream come true! But it also means that I really MUST go on a shopping ban now 😛
A lip color that boosts moisture levels and intensely rejuvenates and conditions lips. Luxe Lip Color intensely rejuvenates lips, helping to reduce the appearance of lip lines and relieve lip flaking. Infused with vitamins C and E and MaxiLip, a powerful peptide, this lipstick plumps lips, supports natural collagen production, and minimizes the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Encased in a sleek, gold tube, just one swipe delivers vibrant, full-coverage color. Formulated without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.
Like I mentioned in the previous review, the packaging of the Bobbi brown Luxe lip color is distinctly different. They have moved from the usual classic black packaging to the one colour which has always indicated luxe – “gold!” So, the case for luxe lip color happens to be a golden one with Bobbi Brown written on the side and her lovely logo etched on top. The bullet itself is free from any branding.
The lipstick has the regular twist-up mechanism and lacks the magnetic closure. However, the cap fits in snugly, so there are very little chances of it coming loose in a bag. As with all things Bobbi Brown, the lipstick comes packaged in a black box which has the ingredients mentioned on it.
My Experience with Bobbi Brown Hot Rose Luxe Lip Color:
Color: The shade, described as “fuchsia pink” – is a hot pink with slight blue undertones. The colour, though medium dark, is ever so slightly muted making it a very wearable fuchsia pink. So, if you have been wanting to wear a brighter shade, but not open to picking up something too loud, this is the perfect shade for you.
I have always had a soft corner for Bobbi Brown lipsticks because of the wear-ability of her colours. She can do a pop of colour, but that too will be all elegant and graceful.
Texture: The texture of the lipstick is consistent with the previous one that I had reviewed – it’s lightweight and glides on smoothly like butter. It does not feather, bleed or look cakey either. As promised by the brand, the lipstick is definitely hydrating. Your lips are definitely better off having worn these. Since the finish is satin, these do transfer, but they don’t move around on the lips much.
Pigmentation: Just as the brand promises, its opaque in a single swipe, hiding all lip pigmentation with it. You don’t really need to build it up. I like that the pigmentation on Bobbi Brown’s lipsticks has consistently been good – across her different lines.
Lasting Power: This shade being brighter, gives you about 5-6 hours of wear time and leaves a soft stain behind. As with “Hibiscus,” a meal will still make it disappear – unless you were doing finger foods.
To sum this up for you:
Pros of Bobbi Brown Hot Rose Luxe Lip Color:
- A beautiful bright shade; however, it’s not over the top.
- Lightweight texture.
- Good pigmentation.
- Easy to apply.
- It applies smoothly and evenly – slides on like butter!
- No feathering or bleeding.
- Luxe packaging.
Cons of Bobbi Brown Hot Rose Luxe Lip Color:
- Hasn’t been launched in India yet. Bummer!
- Definitely needs re-application mid-day.
This line is definitely worth checking – you may not hear it making a lot of noise, like some other brands did with their new lipstick launches. However, the consistently good quality makes it a winner in my book and with about 30 shade options, there is bound to be something for everyone. And honestly, nobody does neutral shades and wearable shades better than Bobbi Brown.
