Bobbi Brown Pink & Red



I love pink and red together— it’s a very modern mix.” – Bobbi Brown
 
With this limited edition collection, Bobbi Brown took an unconventional approach to the season’s traditional color palette. The Pink & Red Collection isn’t about matching your lips, cheeks and nails. It’s about deliberately mismatching. Let me review this but I heard that this is almost out of stock. S-E-A-R-C-H ;)

Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color (limited)
SRP: PHP 1350
Availability: Rustan's Department Stores

 (+) Coverage is above average as usual for Bobbi Brown lipsticks
(+) Creamy moisturixing texture for a matte finish - this one differentiates this from MAC matte lippies
(+) Highly pigmented

 (+) Versus the permanent color of Bobbi Brown, this limited edition (left) has a brighter splash of red like MAC Russian Red

 (+) On lips, it glides comfortably, feels so lightweight, without drying the lips - this one makes Bobbi Brown unique too as always
(-) However, I think that it's more semi-matte than matte like MAC's maybe because of the formula which is great

 (+) But also, the extremely high concentration of pigments deliver true color that lasts for up to 8 hours. I also like that while it's creamy, it doesnt smudge on the teeth. That's how long-wearing it is.

(-) The circular flat shape of the lipstick makes it just hard to shape the lips so it's adviseable to use a lip brush
Bobbi Brown Sheer Color Cheek Tink (limited)
SRP: PHP 1350
Availability: Rustan's Department Stores

(+) I am not a real cream/stick blush user because I wear thick makeup and I have oily skin but this one's quite different - it has a sheer natural coverage that won't compete with my base. This is quite different from the usual Bobbi Brown cheek tints which has fuller coverage as you can see below
(+) Even with 2 coats, the products provides great sheer texture with pigmented shades
(-) The only negative I can comment on is the consistency of the more pigmented shade, Sheer Cherry, but I love that when blended as can be seen below, it stays true to the sheer texture

 (+) The translucent, lightweight formula glides on smoothly and blends evenly onto skin.
For a just-been-kissed look, apply Sheer Color Cheek Tint to the apples of the cheeks and blend down and back towards the hairline using fingers.

(+) Non-sticky, non-oily, quite long-wearing

(+) it’s packaged in a chic, swivel-up stick for easy, on-the-go application
(+) Buildable coverage maintaining a sheer texture
(+) Doesn't stain the face too much with weird marks

 Below and above are more products from the collection with quite different textures (which is ideal when you use just 1 color) and the ideal look for it.

Overall, as always, I'm always impressed by the wearability of bobbi Brown cosmetics especially when it comes to pigments which would usually sacrifice that. The new red color is very unique to Bobbi Brown and to matte/semi-matte lipsticks in the market, and will definitely recommend and repurchase that. While I can't use the stick, my sister swears by it because there's so much control on the product. Generally, application for this kind of blush is hard and it usually stains too much. But this one has a good one that provides great sheer finish. I would recommend this to people who want a healthy-looking skin. The whole collection is just great as it provides a great range to achieve the look they are promoting that's just simple, color-coded yet stunning with different textures.
