in Bobbi Brown, Lip Products, Lipsticks, Reviews

PS: I am HEARTBROKEN because i put in so much effort to click these swatches and photos and my camera seems to have malfunctioned so i have lost half  of  the swatches :(  (Update: Swatches have been added back)

Bobbi is in town, and she got us a whole lot of lip colors to love !!! If you are a lipstick fan in India then you MUST check out the Bobbi Brown lipstick collection because atleast 60% of the shades, seem tailor made for Indian Skin. No Jokes- its like when she was formulating the shades- she thought of all of us warm  toned divas on the east !!!!

When you go to the Bobbi Brown Store, you should definitely check out the shades labelled “Recommended for India”. These are what Bobbi Brown Recommends as the shades you need to own. At the end of the article iv also made a list of all the shades i think you should definitely check out in general

Ive often felt Bobbi must have indian friends:-)…ive many of her lipsticks n they are perfect neutral n brights which look good for darker girls like nc44 and have raisin,plum rose,heather pink.infact wear the foundation shade honey from her long lasting foundation n use her corrector n concealer.I whole heartedly recommend buying her products.

Hey dis r really lovely…..havn’t ownd evn a singl lip swatches…but thinking of some of this shades my first lipstikcs…


Ankita Singh September 30, 2013 at 4:27 pm

Hi Mehak,

I am confused between MAC Twig and one of these gorgeous BB nude lipsticks. Although I do think MAC Twig is drool-worthy. I am a regular with MAC products and have never tried BB, so a tad biased may be. But MAC is just so expensive that for a nude lipstick I’m having second thoughts.
My skin tone is NC 40, would you please help me pick one?



mehak September 30, 2013 at 5:42 pm

Hi Ankita,
BB is even more expensive..its 1400 …so if yr looking for something yll be wearing very rarely then go with twig though twig is not a nude yknow. Its more like everyday brown kind of color. If you are looking for a really flattering nude however, i would prefer these to twig ….


Ankita Singh October 1, 2013 at 5:05 pm

Thanks a ton for the prompt response Mehak! :)
I’ll be coming to Delhi in November for my wedding, will definitely pay a visit to the Bobbi Brown store. Will hold on to my Twig purchasing itch meanwhile, and will buy whichever suits me then.


Maitreyee November 16, 2013 at 4:14 pm

pink mauve and soft rose for everyday wear! <3 <3
