Bobbi Brown Treatment Lip Shines for Perfect Summer Lips

About a month ago, I came across the Bobbi Brown Treatment Lip Shines with SPF 15 and was really excited to try them out. I think they used to carry a similar product some time back but the new ones were launched as part of the summer 2010 collection and have been re-formulated.

The Lip Shines come in an array of 12 colours that range from neutral to bold. Some contain shimmer but they are not too glittery that you’d look like you have disco on your lips. They remind me of MAC Slimshines that came out some years back (but are no longer available) except that the Lip Shines are more pigmented and have better moisturising properties.

Description :
Lightweight, soft shine lipstick that doubles as a rejuvenating moisture treatment. It instantly comforts dry, chapped lips and provides long-term moisturization with natural Cocoa and Shea Butters, Jojoba, Apricot Kernel and Avocado oils. Peptides, along with Vitamin C, stimulate collagen production to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, while SPF15 helps prevent future sun damage.

Papaya is described as a bright pink coral and Nectarine as a pink nectar. Most shades are quite pigmented so if you are expecting a sheer wash of colour, you’d be in for a surprise. They are fairly lightweight but you can feel that they are emollient at the same time. I can use them without having to apply a lip balm first and they still go on smoothly. They are quite long-lasting and will survive past your first couple of drinks but it won’t really last throughout a meal. I like that they offer some sun protection too.

All in all, I think these are great for my lips but not so good on my wallet. Lip Shines are sold at Bobbi Brown counters / boutiques for RM80 each. Even so, I already plan to go back to get more colours because I love them that much :-)

Che, you won't have a clue how happy your post made me.Not directly, cause I don't use lipstick (but I'll know which ones to look out for when i do, so thanks!)..It's the fact that there was a new post! :)I really enjoy reading all of them, and I look forward to new ones all the time heh.Exam prep (or more likely, the lack of it) is driving me nuts.
