Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Color Neutral Rose & Pink Nude – My New Favorite Lipstick Formula

Before I get into more detail on Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Color Neutral Rose & Pink Nude [$35 at Sephora] I wanted to ask you something. Fellow millennials, do you remember the times when lipstick was considered “old ladyish” and we were all obsessing over lip glosses – the shinier the better? Those were the times! I remember being in middle school and tearing off those tiny Maybelline WaterShine Diamonds samplers out of Seventeen Magazine. That moment when I first saw my lips sparkle like a disco ball made me feel so pretty!

Yes, I felt pretty then, but looking back at those pictures as a cynical adult-perfectionist made me see a whole bunch of flaws instead. After all, my application wasn’t that great and the gloss didn’t go with the rest of my makeup at all. But at that moment I felt like the prettiest girl around, and it seemed like the world stopped just to look at my shiny lips 🙂 Silly, I know, but at one point it made me realize I should never judge people for their makeup. After all, feeling pretty is a beautiful thing, and the concept of beauty is totally subjective.

Anyhow, I know this was a long prelude, but there’s a point to it! I didn’t think there would be a time when I fall in love with a lip product like that again, especially now that I’m a beauty influencer, and trying new things became sort of a routine. I randomly stumbled upon Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Color on my NYC trip a couple months ago, and it changed my whole process of buying makeup.

I wasn’t planning on buying it at all, I just wanted to see what those lipsticks were like. After all, at $35 a pop they are in the same price range as my faves from YSL, Chanel, and Guerlain, so why wouldn’t I just get those instead? My MIL offered to get me one as a thank you gift for helping her pick a lipstick. She bought two tubes of NARS Audacious in Audrey [which looks gorgeous on her!] following my advice, one for her makeup vanity at home, and another one to keep in her purse. Anyhow, the store didn’t have my color in stock, so I used a disposable applicator to try Neutral Rose on my lips, got a couple compliments [people are trained to give them out at makeup counters so I usually take them with a grain of salt], and went on about my day.

A few hours later, after we had lunch and drove a couple hundred miles, I glanced at my face and the lipstick was still there – vibrant, perfectly pigmented, looking almost as neat as the moment I applied it all those hours ago at the store. Say whaaat? Not only that, but despite feeling tired from a long car ride, I suddenly felt very pretty. Then I recalled those feelings I had about a magazine peelie of super glittery Maybelline lipstick from middle school. At that point I knew I had to get Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Color Neutral Rose no matter what, so I did.

The formula was perfect: vivid pigments, buttery smooth coverage, long-lasting color, non-drying on the lips… So I went ahead and also bought Pink Nude as another everyday alternative that goes really well with a bolder eye look, while Neutral Rose is my go-to for more natural eye makeup.
