AMW Reviews: Bobbi Brown Lip Color and Rich Lip Color

I realized I own a couple of Bobbi Brown lipsticks but never really talked about it!  After I search through my "lipstick case" for yearly "checking" of expiration and threw a couple of lipsticks out that has been around for 3 years, I went on and enjoyed the "sight" of my lipsticks!  Then I saw 3 tubes of Bobbi Brown Lipsticks and wondered why they where packaged differently.

One has Gold, is actually called Lip Color ...
 

And the plain black casing called Rich Lip Color SPF12...

By the name itself, you can probably guess which lipstick has "MORE" on moisturizing department!

Bobbi Brown Lip Color says ---
Bobbi's original formula treats lips to rich color with a soft-matte finish. Infused with Vitamins E and C as well as Beeswax, it also moisturizes and comforts lips. 

AMW says ---
Pros
  • The gold in between gives a nice, classy look.
  • No weird scent nor taste.  (unless expired, I've thrown one out!)
  • Has a nice pigmentation.
  • Though this is just a regular lip color, it does not dry out my lips or make it flakes like other lipsticks.
  • Gives a nice hint of sheen which looks good on lips.
  • Li p color stays longer than regular lipsticks.
  • Creamy but no heavy feel.
  • Build-able.
Cons
  • Could get a bit drying for VERY dry lips! 
  • No SPF.
Lip Swatch
Pale Pink no. 21


Bobbi Brown Lip Rich Lip Color SPF12 says ---
Bright, get-noticed color. Introducing Rich Lip Color SPF 12. Lightweight, yet intense, Bobbi's latest formula combines pigments with a clear base to deliver pure, crisp color with just one swipe. Plus, it's creamy and moisturizing, so lips feel as good as they look. 


AMW says ---
Pros
  • Simple matte packaging.
  • Pigmented and build-able shades.
  • Has a slight sheen and creamy minus heavy feel.
  • No weird scent or taste.
  • Has SPF 12.
Cons
  • Can make very DRY lips look even drier.
Lip Swatch
Bikini Pink no. 8


Overall
Both the Lip Color and Rich Lip Color in my opinion has a slight sheen to it!  I guess the choice is between Rich Lip Color having SPF12 while the other doesn't.  Both felt the same on lips, creamy yet very light, the effect of both are the same!  It is also a choice between the shades you may want from both collections.


Tips
  • Very dry lips should apply lip balm or lip treatment prior to ANY lipstick application.
  • All of them have a slight sheen to it and if you want to mattify the color, you can either press with a tissue or apply a bit of loose powder on top of a tissue paper pressed on lips to remove shine! 
  • Use a lip brush for a more defined lips.
  • NEVER share lipstick to other people, if needed to, wipe the tip with a napkin.
  • Always store your lipsticks in cool, dry place.
  • Take note on expiration dates!  If the lipstick has a weird scent or taste, throw them immediately!
Will I repurchase?
Yes!

To whom do I recommend this to?
Lipstick lovers!  Who can have enough lipsticks?  Not me!

Where to purchase and how much?

At local Bobbi Brown counters around Php1,100 (approx $26.00).

Stay happy!

  1. Oh I love the Lip Color with gold casing. I am fond of lippies in shade of brown. Bright colored lippies won't look good on me.

  7. Agh, I hate throwing away makeup that isn't completely used up yet, will I die if I continue to use lipstick that's more than 3 years old? =( That's why I don't like buying expensive mascara too, with a life span of only 3 months-- ack! My makeup collection will never grow large because I want to make sure none of it goes to waste. Sigh.

    1. I agree on mascaras and I'm glad I get to buy mascaras that are inexpensive and still work really well!

      With regards to Lipstick, it is ok to buy expensive one since you will be using it personally and try to purchase one that's wearable on a daily basis and you'll probably finish it off before even expiring. Using expired lipstick won't make you die but it does taste a bit weird!

      I do have a lot of lipsticks as I do makeup professionally so it helps to have a lot which isn't needed if you're not a makeup artist, 2-3 lipsticks are enough :D

    2. Thank you for the advice, I do have two lipsticks now, and think it's high time to get rid of one because it was actually a hand-me-down from my mom and I don't even remember when she gave it (THAT old, oh no). But I think I will try tinted lip balm now, for the two-in-one thrifty deal.

      Your statement about inexpensive mascara motivated me to search your site more intensively. I really enjoy your posts, thank you for providing beauty tips and product reviews for clueless readers like me. =)

    3. Yes, do throw them out as we tend to eat our lipsticks when we eat or drink! :) Buying tinted lip balm is also great! I love ones from Lip Ice (Mentholatum) and Nivea Lip care also makes good one! :)

      Ohh Love Maybelline Volum' Express mascara and it's drugstore :) There are a lot of inexpensive yet good products out there :) Glad to be of help
