My first haul from Bobbi Brown cosmetics comprised of three beautiful lipsticks; Bobbi Brown Lip Color in Tulip, Bobbi Brown Lip Color in Neon Pink (IMBB Sponsored) and Bobbi Brown Rich Lip Color in Rose Blossom. I am so impressed and deep in love with the formula that I already selected two more shades from them, one being Soft Rose on high recommendation of our adorable writer, Arpita Mitra 🙂 . Let’s first explore the shade Tulip from Bobbi Brown Lip Color range lipsticks. In the end, I have added swatches and images of all 3 shades I own as ready reckoner for those searching for swatches on web.
The bestseller that started it all—Bobbi’s creamy, semi-matte lipstick was the first formula to launch (and sold out instantly). The secret to its success? Comfortable, full-coverage color instantly gives lips a polished look.
$26 9 (excluding taxes and shipping costs) for 3.4 g
Available in 51 shades.
My Take on Bobbi Brown Tulip Lip Color:
These are lipsticks for women who want creamy formula with semi-matte finish along with qualities of non-drying, full coverage, comfortable and long wearing lip color.
Packaging: With the signature packaging of Bobbi Brown, the lipstick comes in a square, glossy black packaging with golden bullet chamber. The glossy black plastic catches finger prints easily. It has twist-up mechanism like most of the lipsticks and a label sticker at bottom to call the shade name. The card-box is black and classy. Overall, a sturdy, elegant and sober lipstick which snaps shut tight to carry in clutches.
Texture, fragrance and finish: The texture of Bobbi Brown lip color is purely creamy with awesome moisturising capability. They carry a creamy and semi-matte finish. The formula is non-drying, very moisturizing, to some extent hydrating and feels very comfortable on lips. I am going through dry-skin phase these days which has even affected my lips. My lips are dry and parched and with this lipstick, they feel comfortable and healed till it stays on my lips. It has a mild and pleasant fragrance. I have noticed that it makes my lips look fuller. The creamy formula glides on like melted butter and you don’t even need a lip liner for a perfect application.
Colour, coverage and pigmentation: The shade, Tulip is a pink-brown but with distinguishable brick red undertones. The brick-red undertones are not too dominant to change the lip color family from pink-brown to reds. Tulip is an everyday wear shade, which is easy to carry in college, office or any regular day out. But can also be paired with makeup looks for festive and party wear. The shade will suit fair, light and medium skin tones for both warm and cool under-toned skins. The pigmentation is superb and couldn’t have been more perfect. One swipe builds 90% intensity of color on lips and the second one finishes it to full coverage. The lipstick gives opaque coverage and is equally good for pigmented and non-pigmented lips.
Longevity and transferability: The Lipstick lasts on my lips for an average of 5 hours with small refreshment, a cup or two of coffee and regular water sips. It doesn’t survive a meal and though doesn’t disappear completely, but loses intensity and finish. So you need to reapply it after a meal. Overall, with 5-6 hours longevity, it doesn’t bleed or feather at all (even without lipliner). It fades evenly, leaving behind a really unnoticeable faint stain. However, it transfers to mugs/glasses, especially when freshly applied.

Would I repurchase/recommend Bobbi Brown Tulip Lip Color?
These lipsticks are pure luxury and pure love. While I intend to explore other shades, I don’t think I shall be able to finish it sooner to go for repurchase but going to pick two more shades from the same range. It is a definite recommendation for everyone. Ciao beauties.
