Bobbi Brown Creamy Lipcolor

I've been using Bobbi Brown's new Creamy Lipcolor for the past few days. This new lipstick has tons of moisturizers including personal fav shea butter, and is very creamy. It goes on nicely, and really does a great job of moisturizing. More of a balm in many ways, but the lasting power of lipstick, I found the lasting power to be about medium, pretty good for anything with all those emollient ingredients.

A few years ago a friend, knowing my love of shea butter , gave me a set of Mojave Magic lipbalm/sticks. These were so pretty in the container, 2 sided and touting lots of moisture. Well they didn't hold up well. I found them to be almost drying . I was very disappointed.

When I heard about these new ones, I was excited again, and thankfully they live up to it. I gave them the acid test of wearing when I was going to be out for awhile in the 20 degree winds last week. I was happy to see that not only did the lipstick hold up, but no chapped lips later.

I am using Bronzed Pink, which is not pink at all, but a really perfect nude shimmer. I love that kind of nude lip , and it will be even better come summer. I also have Nude Pink which is a nice sheer-ish light pink shimmer. Very pretty. Neither is overly pigmented but they are not sheer either. Somewhere in the middle basically. I find that 2-3 coats of the lipstick is best. 1 wasn't enough color or coverage for me, and no going over your lips 3 times isn't too much either, since these are light.

Currently exclusive to Neimans they hit more stores next month, and sell for 22.00
