Ok, so it’s not news that Mondays are pretty dull, so I thought I would brighten up the dullest day of the week with Bobbi Brown’s new Sheer Lip Color in Orange.
This lipstick is part of the new Hot Nudes Collection which is a new release for summer. It’s inspired by Florida, the home state of spokesmodel Kate Upton, so the whole collection is filled with the most stunning pinks, oranges and corals.
In the tube, the Sheer Lip Color in Orange looks seriously pigmented, but thankfully when applied, the formula is absolutely perfect! I can slick the lipstick on straight from the bullet without having to worry about using a lip brush or smearing the colour everywhere! The Sheer Lip Colors feel like a balm to apply, but have a stunning pop of glossy colour which is just perfect for Spring and Summer!
Rather than looking like a true orange, I would say that the Orange Sheer Lip Color wears more like a bright, warm-toned coral. I love wearing it with a natural, bronzed base and defined brows. It feels like a nice change from my usual pinks and nudes, and I’ve received so many compliments and comments when I’ve worn it.
If, like me, you normally only wear neutrals, this is such a fun and pretty way of expanding your lipstick collection. Since it’s Bobbi Brown, you know it is going to be incredibly flattering to wear, and I think the formula is just dreamy – I had over 4 hours of glossy colour which faded to a pretty stain.
