There are lipsticks that are comfortable to wear, and there are lipsticks that are uncomfortable to wear (drying, feathering, etc.). And then there is that very small group of lipsticks that actually, actively, moisturize your lips while you wear them.
Please allow me to introduce you to Bobbi Brown’s amazing new Treatment Lip Shines. These skinny lipsticks offer sheer color (but much more than just a tint), in a formula that includes cocoa butter, shea butter, jojoba oil, apricot kernel oil, avocado oil, vitamin C, and SPF 15. Trust me when I say they feel really, really good on your lips.
The new formula is actually a permanent addition to the line (hooray!) and there are 12 (unscented!) shades.
Nectarine is coral (and I really like it). Brownie Nude is a warm, barely rosy brown. Papaya is “hot red,” a bright, pretty pink. Pink Glisten is cool pink with tiny silver sparkles. Raspberry Pink is a cool… raspberry pink. Moonlight Rose is a deeper, redder version of Brownie Nude. Rosy is muted red, like quince or lingonberry jam. Sunset Bronze is a russety, slightly browned red with sparkles. Berry is… violet berry.Â Maple is a deep brown berry.Â Plumberry is sheer purple.Â I think Desert Rose is going to look good on almost everyone: it’s a mauvey rose.
Treatment Lip Shines are $22 each.
