This year marks the 25th anniversary of Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, which she, Bobbi Brown, a makeup artist, was struggling to find flattering lipsticks. So she created her own! 
To celebrate the 25th anniversary and to pay homage to the original lipsticks, 10 new modern shades have been launched in the Luxe Lip Color range. These lipsticks give a full colour, and are so moisturising an simply feel incredibly soft and smooth on the lips.
In addition, these lipsticks come packaged in the most stunning heavy gold packaging, that makes them look every bit as luxurious as they are. 
I put three of the shades to the test.. 
  • Bellini - a medium coral shade
  • Uber Beige - a medium nude mauve shade
  • Flame - bold orangy red shade
Unfortunately the Bellini shade is not my ideal shade, I'm not sure why as it is a lovely shade, maybe it is just not right for my skin tone… but maybe come summer and I get a bit of a tan, it will be a different story, - I'm not giving up on this one just yet.
The Uber Beige is the ultimate nude shade for me. I am not fond of too pale lips, but this one seem to have done the trick and looks lovely and natural on my lips, and is hence the perfect everyday lipstick. This shade should be in every collection.
Finally, there's the Flame shade, a gorgeous bold orangy red shade - and this is without a doubt my favourite shade. Perfect for a night out. Or if you simply want to brighten up your face. I'm in love!  
L-R: Uber Beige, Belini, and Flame
These lipsticks are truly beautiful. Just one swipe is all that is required for a full coverage with a lovely sheen, and they simply feel so soft and hydrating on the lips at the same time. In terms of wear, I get about 4-5 hours from the Bellini and Uber Beige, while the darker Flame wears a bit longer, as with most darker lip colours - and all while feeling so lovely on the lips.
Often long-wearing lipsticks are very drying on the lips, and feel very uncomfortable too, but not these Luxe Lip Colors from Bobbi Brown - they are just divine, and definitely worth checking out. Personally I'll be sure to check out the rest of the range and hopefully pick up a few more of the darker shades..
