Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color Review

11:33:00 AM

Good Day ladies! Here's another lipstick swatch for ya. If you've read my December 2013 Haul which I posted early January, you've seen the Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color which I received as a surprise gift from Bobbi Brown Philippines! Yeepeee ^_^

You can only imagine how excited I was when I received an email from them saying that I have a gift waiting for me at their Bobbi Brown Counter here in Cebu at Rustan's Ayala. and yes I was literally grinning as I dropped by the counter. LOL

Product Info from Bobbie Brown Philippines

Retail Price:  PHP 1,350.00

Available in the following shades: 
Red, Hot Plum, Shell, Calypso, Party Pink, Lily, True Pink, Tawny Pink

The Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color is a revolutionary matte lipstick formula that uniquely combines the look of a classic matte lip with incredible wearability. Creamy, moisturizing and highly pigmented, it glides comfortably onto lips but feels extremely lightweight. Not to mention, it’s got great staying power too.

Who’s It For
Women who want a full coverage, semi-matte lipstick

How to Use
Apply straight from the tube or with the Lip brush on clean, bare lips, or over the Lip Balm. If desired, blot with tissue for a matte finish.

How It Works
Perfect Coverage in a Single Application/Intense Color Impact
- Creamy Matte Lip Color is formulated with an exceptionally high pigment load for intense color payoff in a single application. Traditionally, matte lipsticks are not offered in such a varied shade range because the more pigment that exists within the formula, the drier it tends to be.

Moisturizes and Conditions
- Creamy Matte Lip Color provides intense moisturization to the lips. This lip color is formulated with special emollients and soft waxes that form a conditioning barrier to lock in moisture.

Long Wear
- Creamy Matte Lip Color’s unique formula is designed to slightly soften with the warmth of the lips, providing full color release. Skin comfortable film formers and an extremely high concentration of pigments contribute to advanced wear that will not transfer, smear or feather for up to 8 hours.

The lipstick itself twists all the way, so the product does not stick out.

What I like about it...
* extremely pigmented, one swipe is all I need to get full color on my lips
* has a rich and creamy texture, so it glides like a dream. it really does, I swear.
* has mild pleasant scent, like a hint of caramel. It's almost unnoticeable.
* has a chic and sturdy packaging
* the tube twists all the way to end so it's easy to close without nicking the tip of the lipstick
* dries to a semi matte finish
* feels really light on my lips compared to typical matte lipsticks
* though it is a matte lipstick, I was surprised that it's not drying at all
* stays long on my lips, a good 5 hours before it starts to fade
* once it sets on my lips, it doesn't smear or feather even after drinking or eating
* no allergies experienced

What I don't like...
* unlike its claim, this is does transfer a bit but not as much as ordinary cream lipsticks do
* expensive, but worth it because this is the first matte lipstick I've tried that isn't drying and feels really light at the same time.

My rating: 5 / 5

Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color in True Pink Swatch

Overall, I really do like the formulation of this matte lipstick. It can be expensive but it works. If you want a matte lipstick that is very pigmented, isn't drying and feels really light on your lips, then this is for you. 

There's just one thing that I'd like to point out. Before applying this lipstick, make sure to exfoliate or remove excess skin on your lips if there's any to get a really smooth finish.

Until next time.

  1. bobbi brown pls open in rustans alabang! i have to go all the way to makati to check on them and i hate the traffic lol :D ill check on these next time im intrigue about the slight caramel scent, i just wish the packaging was sleeker or something a bit different :)

  2. The colour is so pretty!
    I really wanted to try out Bobby Brown products (specially their Eyeliner and their Blushes) but they are particularly hard to find and quite expensive :<
    Anyway, Take care, have a nice day!*

  3. @Shayne, for the price, yeah I guess you're right the packaging could do better.
    @Krisella, thanks sis.
    @Diana, they are available at most Rustan's branches.

  4. How is the pigmentation compared to MAC matte and retro matte? I like really opaque lipsticks. I want crushed plum, warm beige, tawny pink.

    1. @Rae, I'd say the pigmentation is just about the same or maybe better. the only difference is that Mac Matte lippies are drying.

    2. Yey! Thanks. Will drop by bobbi brown today. Sayang wala silang super deep red.

  5. Surprise gift from Bobbi Brown??!??!? How exciting/amazing!! :D
    I personally haven't tried their lipsticks, but I have my eyes set on their blushes.
    The packaging + colour of this is beautiful though! (I DISAGREE WITH YOU AND SHAYNE, the packaging is already so sleek!)

    1. hehehe, I know . I hope I get another surprise from them real soon (wishful thinking lol)
      I only ever tried their blushes once it blends easily and has great pigmentation. Thanks for dropping by ^_^

  6. I wish I can have it as a surprise gift too. That’s amazing right?

  7. Nice to know it doesn't feel dry. That's probably the main reason I don't have a single matte lipstick in my collection right now. I have a phobia of dry lips. :)) --Matromao
