Bobbi Brown Rose Gold Rich Lip Color Review, Swatches, Photos

Bobbi, girl, I tried to recreate that killer lip look you had going on in the Rose Gold promo image but I couldn’t do it! It says the model is wearing Pink Peony Rich Lip Color topped with Pink Cocoa Rich Color Gloss but I tried the combo and I don’t get that bronze-y rose that the model has going on. Why you do this to me? I’m mad with envy my lips don’t look as amazing as your models.

Anyone try the combo?


Sadly, I was unable to successfully recreate the look but here’s a look at the Bobbi Brown Rose Gold Rich Color Lipsticks.

Ok, I thought these were slightly odd colors to pair up with the Rose Gold Collection. The Wild Rose Shimmer Brick is super bright and gorgeous on my cheeks and I expected some dusky shades of red, berry, and rose to go along with it for my lips but Bobbi took an interesting turn and went with some cooler and nude shades of rose and coral creams to pair up with the look!

Sad sigh ahead…

I couldn’t successfully wear many of these shades because 1. they have a cream finish (I look zombie-fied in cream finishes, just too mod for me) and 2. some of the coolers were a tad too nude and cool for me.

The nicer shades would be Wild Rose (rosy raspberry shade) and Nude Rose (dusky light rose). The cooler shades didn’t get on with me so well those were Miami Coral and Pink Peony. The nice option is you can create super wearable looks with all four shades if you indulge in the glosses Bobbi released with Rose Gold as the glosses warm up or lighten up shades depending on the colors you mix and match them with.

You have to be careful with Rich Lip Color as most are cream finishes in my experience and they do accentuate less than smooth lips. So if you are drier I do suggest a balm prior to use so you get an nice, even color finish. On smoother lips, you’ll experience a soft, creamy glide with excellent color pay off but def do take my suggestion of a balm prior if your lips are drier.

I’m a little on the fence about these shades. I thought they didn’t quite fit in with the Rose Gold theme. Actually, when I think about it the whole collection doesn’t really give me a Rose Gold vibe but there are some gems here that are worthy of a check out. You might just love these colors.

Get ’em at your fav Bobbi Brown counter now.

Did you already indulge?

    I LOVE BRAND NEW LIPSTICK. I love everything about it. I always hate messing up that perfect new look.

    I scrolled up and down this page like 4 times just looking at the beauties. For some reason saying that makes me feel like a pervert.

    Ze colors are quite nice!

    How would you describe cream finishes? Are they almost matte? I really like the miami coral shade, but I don’t like lipsticks that are really moisturizing as i like a drier texture 🙂

    • the Muse

      semi-matte I guess nana, no shimmer, no glitter, nicer wear than a typical matte as they aren’t drying but have a creamy finish.

    Hmmmm…methinks you’d. Need PhotoShop to recreate that look from BB’s ads! 🙂 sorry girl:(

    I was going to buys “Pink Peony” ,but I only ended up with the shimmer brick. BB has an older gloss called ‘rose gold’ that is definitely more ‘gold’, and it’s rather nice.

    Are these limited edition? Coz I’d love to snag Miami Coral when it arrives on Philippine Shores

    Hi Muse! i know my comment is late…but I liked this lip combo too and chatted with a BB artist online asking about it. she told me the lip products used are not on the site yet (Rose Gold Lip Shimmer Lip Color and Pink Champagne Lip Shimmer Lip Gloss). she told me this end of january. I don’t know why she told me something different than what is now listed as what the model is wearing!

    • the Muse

      UGH GRRR lors why are they listing the items used as the wrong ones! how irritating!

    Hi there! I’m a long time reader (and you’re amaaazing by the way), but this is my first time commenting.

    I also bought the lipstick and the lip gloss because I wanted to get that gorgeous look that the model had as well. I actually found if I just used the Pink Cocoa gloss by itself that it was much closer to the ad. It’s def not the same, though, you’re right. *Tear!*
