Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Colour

BOBBI BROWN LUXE LIPS

Bobbi Brown‘s boldest, most vibrant lip color ever: LUXE LIP. This sumptuous formula dramatically boosts moisture levels while intensely rejuvenating lips, keeping them comfortable and conditioned—even after it’s removed. Now in 30 shades, with a sleek gold tube. It’s luxury, redefined. I am obsessed.

LUXELIP_BOBBI_BROWNFacechart_Scan_LuxeLips

Kate Upton is the face of the campaign. You can watch the video at the end of this post but before I would like to invite you to enjoy Bobbi Brown’s insider tips on the right lip make-up.

What makes this new lip color formula so special?

BB: Luxe Lip is our most luxurious lipstick yet. It glides on effortlessly and gives lips rich, vibrant color with an ultra- luxurious finish. The nourishing formula is packed with moisturizers and peptides that work behind the scenes to make lips look softer and smoother—even after it’s taken off.

What does luxury mean to you?

BB: It’s all about the simple pleasures – a book you can’t put down, really good espresso, a hot bath after a long day. When it comes to beauty, luxury is defined by things that are timeless and made with the very best ingredients.

Bobbi Brown_Lipstick

 Can you describe the process of how you name lip colors?

BB: Inspiration for shades comes from everything I see in my daily life – from fabrics to countries to food. In this collection you’ll find names like Red Velvet, Sunset Orange, and Raspberry Pink. It’s also important that each name help women understand what the color actually looks like—makeup shouldn’t be complicated. Russian Doll is inspired by the color of cheeks and lips after being outside in the cold—rosy red. It’s a subtle, yet statement-making lip color. Parisian Red is inspired by French style. French women are known for their sexy, effortless brand of cool so this is the color that you can wear without any other makeup and still look pulled together. It is true red that instantly brightens up the complexion. And the shade Your Majesty is inspired by London—one of my favorite places in the world. When I’m in London, I’m constantly on-the-go—visiting my favorite sights, restaurants and meeting with friends. Your Majesty delivers just the right amount of depth – it’s sophisticated and royal – making it the perfect lip color to wear from day to night and on any occasion.

Any tips to finding the perfect everyday lip color?

BB: To find the most flattering nude lipstick, use the natural coloring of lips as a guide. The best shade will either match or be one or two shades brighter or darker than lips.

What is a beauty must when wearing bolder lip colors?

BB: Make sure lips are smooth and conditioned before applying lipstick; bright color can accentuate uneven lip texture. And for the most precise look, use a Lip Brush to apply lipstick; keep color within the natural lines of lips. Also, make sure to keep the makeup balanced—bright and bold lips look most modern with simple eye makeup.
