Lipstick Diary: Bobbi Brown’s Italian Rose Creamy Lip Color
I’ve been rediscovering some old favourites in my collection. In this particular case though, I actually forgot I had this. How bad is that? The lipstick in question is Bobbi Brown’s Italian Rose Creamy Lip Color. I have had this for years, and for some reason, have never reviewed it. My bad! It is such a gorgeous lipstick and needs some lovin’.
I adore this type of colour. It’s a pinky nude that is so versatile. I can wear it casually when hanging out with the fam, look polished at the office, or pair it with a smokey eye for an evening out…with the fam It is not so nude that it makes me look like the living dead. It does the opposite in fact and totally livens up my face.
The formulation is divine (Note to self: why do I only have one of these Creamy Lip Colors?!). It lives up to its name and is very creamy. On the lips, it looks luscious. It also stands up to the test of time — I can get about 4 hours wear out of this.
Here’s a swatch of Italian Rose, as well as yesterday’s Lipstick Diary lipstick and gloss from Caryl Baker Visage.
I’m kind of loving writing these Lipstick Diaries. I hope you are enjoying!
