They might look like any other lipstick. But don’t be fooled. Bobbi Brown delivers a true innovation in lip color with Rich Lip Color SPF 12, a lipstick that delivers rich, saturated color in a remarkably lightweight formula.
You only need to put on very little of this lipstick to get excellent color payoff. This also translates into longer wear, because the less product you put on, the longer it stays on since you’re less likely to smoosh the product around on your lips and wipe it away.
Brown says the secret to the formula is combining pigments with a colorless lipstick base. “The result is crisp, clear color and full coverage without a heavy feeling,” Brown explains.
These lipsticks have a light, creamy, emollient feel that moisturizes and conditions as they protect with SPF 12. There are twelve very wearable shades in a wide range of colors from pale to deep.
I sampled three shades: Mod Pink (a light-to-medium pink), Plum Rose (a deeper, plummy pink) and Sweet Nectar (a medium coral). I hope the company comes out with even more shades, because the formula is one of the loveliest around.
