Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Color in Pink Rose

Bobbi Brown's newest launch, the Sheer Lip Color ($25) promises an effortless wash of color with nourishing shine. The lip color, infused with luxurious butters and oils, claims to improve the condition of lips with wear.

Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Color in Pink Rose Review




"Pink Rose" is a gorgeous, raspberry pink with no hint of shimmer/glitter. The color is neither sheer nor glossy - the pigmentation is right in between that of a full coverage lipstick and a sheer balm. From the description of it, I was expecting more of a translucent looking lip color with a glossy finish. The texture is super creamy, the lip color glides on effortlessly even on very dry lips and doesn't enhance the dry, flaky bits. Pink Rose especially is a beautiful pink for medium/dark skintones. The color looks more like a stain with very less shine (almost semi matte) that fades away completely as the day goes by, leaving behind a wash of pink. And it definitely is not a formula that leaves your lips begging for more lip balm/chapstick after the lipstick wears off.

Let's just ignore the white cast on my chin! I'm trying out a new TM that left a wacky, ashy residue!! :|





The packaging, like everything else from Bobbi Brown is simple, sturdy and classy. There's absolutely no scent or flavor, which is the best part of Bobbi Brown lipsticks! If you are looking for an effortless, easy lippie to throw into your bag or something that adds a natural looking stain without drying lips out, you'll love these. Pink Rose wore about 3-4 hours on me and the color stayed much longer than the sheen. I was a tad dissapointed by the flat, matte-ish finish - would have loved it if it was a little more glossy! It is not sheer lip color by any means, rather a very luxurious, creamy, ultra nourishing lipstick!

Have you tried any of the Sheer Lip Colors by Bobbi Brown?
