New From Bobbi Brown: Baby Pink Lip Gloss and Pink Apricot Shimmer Lip Color


Bobbi Brown has a released several new collections this spring including her Nude Glow, Uber Pinks and Shimmer Lip Color reformulations. I reviewed Bronze Nail Polish earlier (which I love). Today I bring some swatches of her Baby Pink Lip Gloss ($25 for .24 fl oz/7 ml) from the Uber Pinks collection and Pink Apricot Shimmer Lip Color ($25 for .12 oz/3.5 g) from her new formula of shimmer lipsticks.

Baby Pink is a soft peachy pink with shimmer. The shimmer shows up more on the lips than what you see in the tube, but it's a natural kind of shimmer. It's fairly pale on me due to the silvery flecks inside but still has enough color in the base to show up and not completely wash me out. I suspect fairer skin girls will love this. Medium-tan girls who love pale colors for more of a contrast will like this too as it will show up on the lips. I couldn't detect any scent although I'm sick with a cold right now and traveling so you may want to try first. As far as I can recall, most of her regular lip glosses are without a noticeable scent. Lasting power is medium for a gloss. It's better than Chanel Glossimers and Armani Flash Lacquers but I wouldn't call it long lasting.



Pink Apricot Shimmer is just as the name implies. It's a lovely pink apricot loaded with shimmer. The texture is fairly smooth for something with this much shimmer. It's not frosty even though I find it very shimmery. There are a number of gorgeous shades it was hard to pick just one. I'm happy to report that these are a quite a bit sturdier than her last shimmer lipsticks (she's reformulated them several times since her original ones). I had four shades of the older formula and found them so soft that all of them broke at the base. The new colors all appeared to be holding up well at the tester counter and they looked like they had been out a week or so to withstand some heavy testing. 





Swatches side by side:



I highly recommend both. The shimmer lipsticks are definitely worth looking into - there's a wide range of shades to choose from. I might have to go back and revisit to try one more.

Bobbi Brown Baby Pink Lipgloss and Pink Apricot Shimmer Lipstick are at all counters now. Online at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales.

  3. This looks like a lovely duo for layering. I normally don't like shimmer in lipsticks but it looks really pretty in this one ^^.

  5. Lipstick looks really great. I might give it a try, I have so many similar already. Chanel had something similar few years ago, I can't remeber the name of that Rouge Allure.
