Bobbi Brown Soft Rose Lipstick
I think I've found the perfect lipstick. Well, it might not be perfect, but it's pretty darn good. I picked this up on Singapore Airline's Kris Shop when we had a bunch of vouchers. Bobbi Brown lipstick in Soft Rose (23) is one of the best lipsticks I have stumbled upon. It's an amazing colour for me!
This is, quite simply, my go-to lipstick. I know I discussed how most of the products I used everyday aren't so fancy, but this lipstick inserts a little bit of glam into my everyday. Have class and looking tired? It perks my skin up and makes me look much more put together. Have a photoshoot? It photographs amazingly, looks natural enough, and doesn't wear off. Have a date? It transitions from daytime to nighttime well, which means I don't have to run home or carry two lipsticks around in my bag.
I'm not sure how this colour would look on someone without a gold undertone in their skin. It's actually more pink than what it showed up in photos... guess you shouldn't shoot photos on your green textbook! Since I'm essentially an earth tone, I suspect it would look even pinker on someone with lighter skin. Regardless, I think Bobbi Brown lipsticks in general are very nice. My mom has the other two colours that came in the airline three-pack, and she really likes them too. She's always complaining about lipsticks feathering on her, but I haven't heard that about these.
This lipstick is fairly hydrating and has a nice sheen. It's not too shiny or too matte, but it does look nice shiny with a gloss over it. It also doesn't dry the lips out, which is a huge plus for any lipstick. The packaging is very, very tough-- this lipstick survives bouncing around in my bag every day without any signs of wear and wear, which I consider a bonus.
Do you have a go-to lipstick?
