I’ve been super busy this month, so I haven’t posted in a while. But here’s a summery going-out look I did a few weeks ago. I can’t remember everything I used, but I know the lips were a sample of MAC’s Creme de Nude (which […]
I bought two Black Radiance lip glosses at Target a few months back, because I was looking for glittery lip glosses to send me into summer. While I should probably just break down and purchase the famous Jouer Lip Topper in Skinny Dip, I saw […]
Bobbi Brown is one of the makeup queens of the century: her luxury products and feature-enhancing techniques defined my beauty routine as a young woman. Bobbi Brown makes makeup for every skin tone and skin type, and her lipsticks are no exception. For Christmas, my family bought me a 10 hue anniversary set of Bobbi Brown’s classic lipstick colors. Not only are the mini-lipsticks perfect for travel, but it gave me a great overview of every shade in Bobbi Brown’s classic lipstick formula. So, without further ado, here is my Bobbi Brown Lipstick Review & Swatches.
If there is one word for Bobbi Brown’s lipsticks, I would say it’s flattering. These lipsticks are creamy and pigmented (but not too pigmented, so they adapt to your natural lip color). The finish isn’t too matte, but it isn’t frosted or glossy. It’s just a beautiful color.
Every color is build-able and layer-able. My favorite shades are Beige, Raisin, and Red, but they’re all gorgeous neutrals (with a kick). If you were lucky enough to pick up a set, you’ll find there’s a color for every look.
The Bobbi Brown Original 10 25th Anniversary Lip Collection is beautiful. Every lipstick is high quality, and they are all wearable colors for any woman; the boldest colors are sheer enough on the lips that anybody would feel comfortable in them. The shades are great for day or night, moisturizing and comfortable. I will probably re-purchase my favorites or even some new shades (there are many available on the Sephora website). As an added bonus, every color can be worn individually, or blended into a custom color. I highly recommend these lipsticks, which are luxurious, classic, and beautiful.

I’ve finally started to like liquid lipsticks; my initial experiences with liquid lipsticks, especially those that dry matte, were rather unfortunate. I once thought that liquid lipsticks were nothing more than a dry, crumbly mess, but I have come to like liquid lippies. While the […]
Christmas is upon us, which means I can break out some of my favorite deep-red lips. Cherry red is lovely, but I leave that to the likes of Marilyn Monroe and Taylor Swift. I’m all about the deeper, darker, berry reds.
I talked about two of my favorite dark red lipsticks, Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in “Motorhead” and MAC “Studded Kiss” in another post. Between these two, I have a slight preference for the MAC lipstick because it is a little creamier. The Kat Von D is a beautiful red-purple color, but you have to make sure your lips are moisturized before you wear it, because it’s very drying.
My other favorite holiday reds are Colourpop “Creature” and “LAX.” I use both of them with the “Creature” lippie pencil. LAX and Creature are both dark purple reds, but LAX is a liquid matte lipstick and Creature is a matte lippie stix. Creature might be my favorite of all of these colors: it is super dark, with a purple undertone, and it is so creamy yet matte. LAX is just as pretty, but sometimes it gets dry and crumbles.

I love deep reds. Honestly, I wear them proudly any time of year, but they are especially perfect for fall and winter. Two of my favorite reds are Studded Kisses: “Motorhead” Studded Kiss Lipstick by Kat Von D Cosmetics, and MAC Cosmetics Lipstick in “Studded […]
