For my last birthday I got Bobbi Brown lipsticks in two stunning colors – Watermelon and Hot Berry. After using them for quite some times, I wanted to write a review and show you the swatches because these lipsticks are literally amazing and totally deserve some space here!
PACKAGE & PRICE
Lipsticks come in a thick paper boxes with all the information. The lipstick package by itself is a hard plastic with gold detail and is very nice, elegant and of a high quality, which was what I expected so it didn’t disappoint me at all.
They are a bit pricey, but for the quality you get, I believe it is worth to save a bit of money and spend it on a lipstick like this. The price is 27$ or 265 SEK.
Watermelon 97 is something between very rich coral and pink, it is a super bright color. This for me is the perfect summer color and it makes lips pop out insanely. I usually wear it with two layers of mascara and a blush – it is the most simple and the best match!
When it comes to consistence and effects, this is more of a mat lipstick and can come out a bit dry which can easily be prevented by hydrating lips before application (but should be avoided when lips are already super dry because it won’t look nice). This lipstick stays on lips for hours and you are safe with it.
Watermelon became my ultimate summer lipstick and it’s only minus would be dryness which can be easily prevented.
Hot Berry OE is a nice, rich berry color with a bit of purple and lots of beautiful shimmer. It is a very bold color and I wore it nonstop during the winter and literally during all occasions including day and night, it is a great choice to basically every outfit.
This is a shimmery lipstick and that gives lips such a nice and special effect, almost to purplish reflection. It is also way creamier than Watermelon, easier to apply and doesn’t dry out lips at all. I would say that it is slightly less pigmented than Watermelon which could require few more seconds of work, but it is worth it. It is long-lasting and really met my expectations since I own and wear a lot of berry color lipsticks.
Hot Berry is made for women who are into berry colors and it quickly became my favorite with it’s high quality and beautiful reflection it gives.
PERFECT TREAT OR GIFT
This is a great lipstick to treat yourself, if you are about to purchase a lip product. I absolutely recommend it. It is also an ideal gift for birthday, Valentine’s day, Christmas or maybe anniversary. There is always space for a great quality lipstick in women’s make up bag!
I got those two as a birthday gift from my boyfriend who discovered www.kicks.se, but you can also find it in Sephora Online Store or Bobbi Brown Online Store. Note that those pages usually give a discount if you are making your first purchase or for your birthday if you are registered :)
Have a lovely day!
