You know how you always want what you cannot have??? I’v always wanted to wear those super sexy sky high stilletoes, but i walk like a duck in them and i tower over everyone awkwardly like a giant so i have to make do with my ballet flats. I also want to enjoy evening siestas- British style- of tea with ‘scones’ and ‘crumpets’ , but the closest thing my help knows to crumpets is Rusk-Butter . Iv always wanted Mac Chatterbox- it just seems like the perfect Barbie-Doll bright pink lipstick to me, but it totally washes me out and looks pale and unnatural on me unlike how fabulous it looks on the lighter girls. Sigh. Until…now! Bobbi Brown’s Creamy Matte Lip Color in Pink Lily is like my own little Chatterbox !!!
Bobbi Brown Claims
” Bobbi’s revolutionary new lipstick – Creamy Matte Lip Color combines the look of a classic matte lip with incredible wearability. Creamy and moisturizing, it glides on comfortably and feels light-as-air. Not to mention that it’s got staying power, too (it won’t budge for 8 hours). Inspired by the looks she was creating for Fashion Week, Bobbi set out to develop the perfect color range, everything from nudes to brights to bolds. We’re pretty sure you’ll want more than one color “
Pink Lily is a bright, fuschia pink that is perfect because while most fuschia lipsticks can tend to veer the magenta way, or the darker ruby pink way, Pink Lily stays right on the pink course and finishes up with a gorgeous, light , but bright pink lip .Bobbi Brown Describes this as a bright pink violet but i dont see the violet on my lips at all and thank god for that. Its a color that may wash out darker skin tones, but medium skin tones (say until NC 40) should be good with this one !!
Bobbi Browns Creamy Matte Lip Colors are definitely one of the creamier and more comfortable mattes iv worn.They are intensely pigmented, glide on smoothly and softly without pulling and tugging on the lips and for a moment you forget that this is a matte lipstick you are wearing. One thing they definitely could improve in- is that this does settle into lines on the lips and over time this looks a bit unbecoming as it kind of prunes your lips just a tad bit . Longevity wise- full marks..once again this is a Bobbi Brown Product that lasts for more than ten hours!
Pros of Bobbi Brown Pink Lily Creamy Matte Lipstick:
- Creamy for a matte lipstick
- Great glide and slip
- Very Long Lasting- definitely atleast 8 hours
Cons of Bobbi Brown Matte Lipstick
- Settles into lines
- I prefer bullet shaped lipstick with pointy ends- makes application easier
Price: Rs 1350/-
Recommendation: Pink Lily is a beautiful bright pink for medium skintones and lighter (will wash out darker ones) and i think its slowly become my favourite bright pink lipstick. These Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte lip colors are creamy, pigmented, matte and comfortable to wear but they do settle into lines so over time they dont look as good as when they first applied.
