Bobbi Brown Neon Pink

I don’t even know why I’m bothering to blog about this lipstick. Yes, I fell into a state of complete lust when I clapped my eyes on it and immediately had to have it BUT… how many times have I worn it since then? Twice, and both times as a stain. Why? Not really sure.

The pigmentation is nice, it’s a little bit dry in texture and it smell’s a little funny. At first, I thought it was expired so I brought it to my local Bobbi Brown store who informed me that a) they ‘couldn’t help me as it wasn’t available here yet’ and b) that it wasn’t gone off. Interesting and helpful (?), I know. I’ve half convinced myself it has expired so maybe that’s not why I’m loving it ‘big-time’, as I used to say when I was about 15.

Here’s a picture and a swatch below. For some reason it looked like a dark red when I photographed it against white, so I had to stick it amongst a pile of stuff on my makeup table to get it to look somewhat true to life.

And there we are. Anyone think it’s a bit meh? Maybe I’m losing my lipstick mojo again. I go through phases of being obsessed with wearing statement lippy and then phases of pretty much a slick of lipbalm. If any of you lovely people bought this, tell me if your’s smells funny.

    I kind of love it on your skin tone, funnily enough! I don’t think it’s a very unique colour, but it looks bright and pretty and like it’d be beautiful with a neutral eye and a peachy/coral blush! xx

    I love the shade but it is so dupeable! I think a lot of drugstore brands are coming out with pigmented and moisturizing lipsticks.

    Awww – disappointing. If I’d the money I’d have bought this on the moro but you’ve made me think twice now. I wonder if the orange one smells too….?

    I actually love the colour… shame about the smell though. Could you try a scented/flavoured balm or gloss over it?

    I’ve had mine for two weeks and it doesn’t have a funny scent to it.
