I feel like over the past couple of years, I’ve become a little less high maintenance than I once was. At school I used to carry a carefully curated selection of Juicy Tubes around in my blazer pocket – all various shades of pink and sparkly. At university Mac’s Snob was my shade of choice – carefully blotted and topped with a shiny top coat (are we noticing a theme?)
Recently though, I’ve been turning more and more to balms – especially when I’m not headed out anywhere in particular. I love how comfortable they are to wear, how casual they look on, and the ease of using them. So when Bobbi Brown sent over one of their new Extra Lip Tints, I was intrigued.
One of three new shades (there’s also a nude and a stunning red), Bare Blackberry is a gorgeous deep berry shade, which looks ultra dramatic in the tube. For a nude-lip aficionado like me, it felt like a push to try, but I am so glad I did. On the lips, this is the prettiest, juiciest shade you can imagine. It’s ultra flattering, and I’ve become obsessed with it for adding a little oomph and colour into my everyday look.
Like the original Extra Lip Tints, Bare Blackberry is ultra comfortable to wear. It’s lightweight and silky smooth on the lips, and it has a lovely glossy finish too. I love it for days when I feel like I need a little extra something. The colour is glorious, and it adjusts to everyone’s own personal lip colour, so it’s flattering for all.
If you’re after an easy way to update your Spring beauty bag, this is most certainly it. Available in six shades in total, I’ve already drafted up a wish list of my next colours – they’re all so pretty, and this feel perfect for the warmer months.
