As part of the Bobbi Brown Brights Collection, several new shades of Bobbi Brown Creamy Lip Color were released. I’ve reviewed Bobbi Brown Creamy Lip Color briefly in my Bobbi Brown Shimmering Nudes Collection post but I thought they did deserve a revisit and an article of their own considering what a lovely formula and product they are.
Four new shades of Creamy Lip Color were introduced with the Bobbi Brights Collection, two of which are making a spotlight appearance here on Musings for my review. Today I’ll be discussing, reviewing, and showing you the shades Retro Pink and Rose Brown.
Skip ahead to hear what I think about these lippies!
I’m a big fan of emollient lip products! Shiny, glossy, moisturizing, I’m all over that. Bobbi Brown Creamy Lip Color brings all those great qualities to the table with a rich pigmented base that’s sure to please makeup lovers far and wide.
The formula of the lip colors is a nice glossy, moisturizing lip treatment. It’s a cross between a lipstick, a gloss, and a lip balm, all rolled into one product. Who doesn’t love all those qualities cocktailed together? I know I do. The product glides onto the lips beautifully leaving behind pigmented, glossy color. I’m a particularly fond fan of applying a dab or two of lipstain on my lips and following up with a few strokes of the creamy lip color for a lovely pout!
I have two of the four new shades released which are Retro Pink (a bubblegum pink) and Rose Brown (a muted brown with a hint of brown).
Rose Brown makes me think of my friend Iris
as I know she’d completely love this shade because it would remind her of one of her favorite lipstick shades from Esprique Precious, BR300….actually on me, as you’ll see below, the color came out as a coral because I paired it up with a touch of an orange lipstain under it prior to use. The effect of the stain and the lip color on top is interesting to say the least.
Retro Pink is a great Spring shade considering how light and fun it is. If you enjoy Bubble Gum pink shades this will surely please.
There aren’t a good deal of creamy lip colors on the market like this at the moment. I try ALOT of different brands as you know and I really never ran across a product like this outside of the Asian market. I enjoy how lightweight it is and absolutely love that it still remains a good deal pigmented even though the formula would seem sheer when applying. Color is buildable and lips are left feeling glossy, shiny, and lovely.
What’s not to love?
Who would love this?
- Anyone who likes a lightweight lip color with plenty of pigmentation and a super gloss finish!
- Those who aren’t too big a fan heavier lipsticks but still desire a bite of color on their lips!
- Anyone who enjoys a glossy, moisturizing lip treatment.
These are really fab in the Muse’s opinion and a tried and true favorite. I look forward to new color releases and I’ll continue buying since the formula is outstanding.
All in all Bobbi Brown Creamy Lip Color are Muse Approved for purchase. The Muse thinks they should be on your beauty radar! Loves it!

Happy Weekend Everyone!
This one is a tiny bit hard for the Muse to answer since she has a slew of concealers that she really likes but since her taste in concealers changes regular and from day to day she finds a new one she likes, she decided it was best to pick the one she uses most regularly as of late…
I couldn’t pick one because at the moment I’m feeling the love for Mally Beauty Cancellation Concealer System in a major way!
My second favorite and totally holy grail material is the Bobbi Brown Concealer Palette!
At the moment both of these two palettes are my go to for fresh, awake, and well concealed eyes!
What about you?

You know Valentine’s Day is a hop, skip, and a jump away right? The Muse simply hate’s Valentine’s Day! Bah, Humbug! Do we really need one day of the year to tell each other we love one another? We should be doing that everyday!
Even though I’m not a fan of the big V I did take note that the next Bobbi Brown launch due out in February is utterly sweet, romantic, and dare I say it reminds me of Valentine’s Day?
I’m actually excited about this particular collection for a few reasons, allow the Muse to share. One, I really like lighter colors lately especially shimmering pinks and golds. I find lighter shades really light up my eyes and make me look awake, fresh, and very pretty. Secondly, I really think that pink is a suitable color for Muse’s like myself. Pink lends a certain freshness to my face and keeps me looking young. And lastly I think pink is idea color for Spring as it’s so light and flattering for those first days of warm weather!
Bobbi Brown Pure Romance Brushed Pink Collection includes four Sparkle Eye Shadows (looks like a new formula from the Metallics, sweet!), two matte shadows, and three shimmering lip compacts. I’m all about snapping up the sparkle shadows and a few glosses but I can probably safely leave the matte shades behind even if they would make a rather nice liner and contrasts well with the pink as they are brown in color but ado the Muse doesn’t really do matte too well and she has plenty now that she hauled the Bobbi Brown Brights Palette!
I was thinking about it, the Muse likes to contemplate these things, and I was feeling ever so hopeful that Bobbi would release a limited edition pink collection a la the Pink Satin Collection I recently scored at Woodbury Commons. On top of these items that would actually put me in a better mood about Valentine’s Day I’d say!
Bobbi Brown Pure Romance Brushed Pink Collection is available in February so be on the look out for a review from the Muse when it launches!
Love all that pink?

I can’t begin to tell you how many people have e-mailed me begging, pleading, and asking that I please for the love of makeup review the Bobbi Brights Eye Palette. Honestly, I heard you all and I appreciate how excited you were about this palette but for the Muse it was somewhat of a no, no. I think you can all guess why? No? One word, matte. All 35 shades in the palette are matte and the Muse and matte just never got along very well.
But for the sake of all good things cosmetic the Muse decided she MUST bring you the review you’ve pleaded with her for and today you’re in for a treat as I bring you the Bobbi Brights Eye Palette review!
It’s understandable why many Bobbi Brown (and makeup junkies in general) fans got pretty excited when they seen the Brights Eye Palette. It consists of 35 shadows in every color you probably ever wanted all in one spot! Nifty right? Who doesn’t want a palette that contains an array of colors all in one place.
At $70 USD I was expecting a MAC Pro style sized palette and boy was I shocked when I figured out the palette was actually the standard Bobbi Brown palette size. Whoa…..I’m unsure why I was under the impressions that the shadows would be medium or even full size or why I was thinking the palette was huge. I guess the price tag kinda sorta made me think I was going to get some giant palette. Not the case my friends. Truthfully I am somewhat disappointed that each shadow is smaller than the size of a US dime and that the palette is in fact quite tiny.
After my initial shock at the size I started smiling stupidly because I was somewhat pleased at how kawaii the palette actually was. It’s small size and cute fold out design is actually extremely practical for travel plus whoever uses a full size shadow completely anyway (especially if you have a large stash of eyeshadow!)? I couldn’t help but feel particularly pleased that on my next trip I could easily take a full color wardrobe with me thanks to this tiny palette as it contains everything from blues, to yellows, to pinks, and purples…all bold, all bright, all Muse friendly colors!
I was shocked to read the description on the website that states “designed to be worn one at a time…” Hey, what are they talking about? You can totally do some amazing looks with a few colors at one time so the Muse highly recommends mixing and matching to create 100’s of looks using one simple palette. Likey.
The colors are all very true and each is pigmented although, minor rant, matte in finish but that’s ok as I thought these would make a great base shade which I can proceed to layer with pigments or sparkles from my own collection. I think all the shades are quite unique however Coral, Peach, Buttercup, Maize, and a few of the lighter shades are pretty similar but just a tiny bit lighter or darker. But I don’t mind much as the colors are so small once I use up one shade it’ll almost be like having a back up! On a side note I did notice that the brighter shades were much more pigmented than the lighter shades and some shades had a bit of a chalky formula.
The Muse did the math and at $70 USD for the palette the calculations come up as $2 USD per a shadow which isn’t bad at all. $70 USD may seem a bit much to shell out for a palette of this size especially once you see that in fact the palette is smaller than an index card but I do think that it’s got quite a bit of bang for your buck inside.
Who needs it?
- Anyone that loves bright bold shades
- Those who want a travel friendly palette with a slew of color options
- Makeup users that are unafraid of a matte finish
- Matte Lovers
- Those who don’t have a ton of makeup but want a bigger stash of color
I’m slapping a big Muse Approval on the palette! It has a slew of color options to create 100’s of looks, it’s compact and amazingly travel friendly, and it’s just too darn cute! I think this one is a keeper! If you don’t have a ton of options available in your cosmetic wardrobe at the moment I think you’ll really want to indulge in this one.
The Muse likey. Alot. Snag one at Bobbi Brown Cosmetics or head to your local Bobbi counter to try out the colors!
I’ll be doing a few FOTD’s with the palette next week so stay tuned!
