Is the trend for a matte lip over? I’m not sure it ever will be, but lipsticks with a shine are making their way back to the top of the beauty brand agendas. The latest through my door was the new Bobbi Brown Luxe Shine Intense Lipstick.
It’s the latest addition to the Luxe Lip Collection and is a smaller bullet, in a more natural finish and format than some of the other shine lip products around at the moment.
It’s perhaps a little too tame for me, but I’ve been embracing a bit of a nude lip of late, and this has some lovely nudes to work with – in particular, Paris Pink, and Bare Truth.
The formula contains hyaluronic acid, Vitamin E, and botanical extracts, and is an emollient-rich lippy that glides on. It gives instant hydration, as well as full coverage colour, and shine – but not too over-the-top shine. It feels lovely on, and the colour lasts for a decent few hours.
I was gifted the set from Bobbi, and they really are beautifully packaged in gold, and small enough to slip into the neatest of evening bags, or even your pocket.
The shades are Claret, Passion Flower, Bold Honey, Wild Poppy, Power Lily, Paris Pink, Trail Blazer, Bare Truth, Desert Sun, Red Stiletto, Night Spell, Supernova, and Showstopper.
The Bobbi Brown Luxe Shine Intense Lipstick, £28, is available at Bobbi counters, stores, and online at bobbibrown.co.uk
