Back in 1991 one, lesser known, freelance makeup artist was on a mission to give women of all ethnicities a collection of wearable, flattering lipsticks. Bobbi Brown had struggled herself to find that perfect lip colour to wear so took matters into her own creative hands and created an edited range of ten lipsticks to complement the natural colour of lips to suit all skin tones; salmon, beige, raisin, brown, rose, pink, orange, blackberry, burnt red and red. They all featured a unique brown base with a semi-matte finish and swiftly became instant bestsellers. And so the brand, Bobbi Brown, was born!
To celebrate 25 years of ‘Be Who You Are’, Bobbi Brown has reimagined those ten iconic shades and given them a reinvention in her most sumptuous formula yet – the Luxe Lip Color. Expect vibrant, full coverage colour with a creamy, slightly glossy finish and a comfortable, moisturising feel on the lips. Beautifully luxurious with a shade to suit everyone! Above I have featured Bahama Brown (a pinky brown) and Flame (a bright, coral-red).
The New Classics Luxe Lip Colors (£25), along with the original line up of ten shades (£21), are available online now and from all Bobbi Brown Cosmetics Studios.
