Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lipstick

Friday, June 01, 2012


Last year was the year of matte lipsticks. MAC released series of retro matte formulations, and a lot of other brands also launched super pigmented ones as vivid colour was in. The ultimate problem with matte lipsticks? Comfort. They just dry the lips, crack it sometimes and leave you wanting for lip balms. Now, Bobbi Brown offers an alternative to that with an innovation - combining the comfort of a creamy lipstick and the boldness and finish of a matte one. Let's review!

(+) Swatches of the creamy matte lipstick show the intense pigmentation, consistency and coverage of the products.
(+) The colours are also varied with reds, oranges and plums which are known in matte formulations.

(+) I got introduced to this product when Bobbi Brown released its Pink & Red collection last year and in my blog entry you can see how this new product is quite similar to Bobbi Brown's rich creamy lipsticks in terms of quality and texture (quite creamy)

(+) After a few minutes, in terms of finish, product looses some of its moisture to become matte. While it's not really comparable to the matte and retro matte formulations of MAC,you can see less moisture in the product.

(+) The unique selling point of the product is its comfort and wearability. Versus Retro matte and matte counterparts, this has a good formula that is non-drying. In fact, I would use this creamy matte lipstick before using MAC matte products so I can glide the latter easily, and when I retouch also as MAC would always dry my lips after 8 hours of usage.

(+) Color pay-off is very good and comparable to a known high-colour brands.
(+) Soft, creamy but not too thick compared to affordable brands.

(+) Scent as always is citrusy which feels good
(+) Lasts of up to 5-6 hours and ability to retouch is nice
(-) The shape of the lipstick though makes it hard to shape, contour and apply the product

Overall, this is one revolutionary product especially for people who like wearing bold and matte lipsticks. I like it that Bobbi Brown always thinks of how women wear the products and makes it easier for them to achieve powerful makeup.

I hope that more brands would consider taking their matte lipsticks to another level not just in terms of colour but also in terms of use.

  4. I think this has the consistency of the wet 'n wild megalast matte lipsticks. Ok na rin, compared to the maybelline mattes that aren't really mattes.
