Bobbi Brown just released a new line of lipsticks recently. Luxe Lip Colors (RM107) deliver a comfortable, ultra luxurious feel to the lips while delivering bold colors to the lips in just one swipe. Luxe Lips help reduce the appearance of fine lip lines and the moisture boosting ingredients prevent lips from flaking. The new line also boasts new packaging, a decadent gold with a majestic looking “B” logo on the cap.
I was sent 2 shades to try – Posh Pink and Your Majesty. Both are on the very opposite ends of the spectrum. Posh Pink is what I’d describe as Kpop pink (or Barbie pink?) and Your Majesty is a dark burgundy with a hint of brown.
I find these lipsticks to be creamy and comfortable on the lips. They are not particularly hydrating, but they are not drying either. Your Majesty is not an easy color to pull off, as darker colors tend to emphasize lines on the lips. Thanks to the ingredients (I assume), and the richness of this formula, the vampy shade did not make my lips look old and mean. It can be worn as a stain, if you’re shy to wear it to its full opacity but I’d advise you to apply a lip balm prior. When applied sparingly, as a stain, the formula is a little drying. How weird, isn’t it? Here is how Your Majesty looks on me.
Posh Pink is a pink I’d never pick for myself. It’s a milky shade that I think clashes with my skin tone. I need to find a blush that’s just as cool toned, and unfortunately, I don’t have that in my stash. Fingers crossed this doesn’t make me look off. This is a pink I usually see sported by those Kpop girls, dancing to bouncy catchy tunes, shaking their boom boom. Such a stereotypical statement, but don’t shoot. There is some truth in those words!
So what happens when one is too dark for every day (but if you know me, I love love love vampy shades like that) and one is too clashy? Create your own! These 2 shades, when mixed together, give you lots of variety. Here is an in between that I quite like. What shall I name it? Posh Majesty? Looks a little mauve, a little rosy, doesn’t it? I LIKE it!
My friend Lena has another red to show you and I think it looks super posh on her. Have you tried any of these new offerings yet? There are 30 shades to choose from so I’m sure there’ll be at least one that catches your eye.
