Bobbi Brown Miami Treatment Lip Shine Review and Swatches

Not a lot has changed since I originally reviewed Bobbi Brown Treatment Lip Shine. They still remain a fine favorite of mine for slick, shiny lip color in a flash and hey, add SPF 15 to the mix with a formula that offers long term moisturization and you have a fan for life.

Let’s check out the four limited edition shades released with the Bobbi Brown Summer 2012 Collection.

Splicing together a gloss, a lipstick, and a little bit of a lip balm together and you’ll get yourself a Bobbi Brown Treatment Lip Shine. With the shiny finish of a gloss, the pigment of a lipstick, and the hydrating properties of a lip balm this little lip treatment brings it all and offers sun protection too!

The weightless formula is a soft shiny lipstick that plays doubles duty as a balm that offers moisturizing properties from both Cocoa and Shea Butter as well as Jojoba, Apricot Kernel, and Avocado oils. Peptides are also laced in to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles which creates a smoother, fuller lip look.

Swatched from left to right: Sunset Beach, Peach Sorbet, Pink Seashell, Orchid Pink

I went into my original review assuming Treatment Lip Shines would be very subtle, sheer, and lightweight. I came out of the review surprised how much pigment they packed however in the case of the limited edition shades released for Summer these colors do run on the more subtle side and have a more nude finish than some of the other colors in the general catalog. If you like a nude, natural lip look you’ll want to explore these colors but if you want something a bit more popping I’d suggest checking out colors that are part of the standard collection.

One of the things to love here is the slick, easy glide of the lip treatment across lips. They apply like butter and have a shiny finish that’s very flattering.

Orchid Pink

Sunset Beach

Pink Seashell

Peach Sorbet

Overall, Bobbi Brown Treatment Lip Shine offer an easy way to get a hint of color, plenty of shine, plus sun protection all in one. The joy here is the hydration throughout the wear so if you have issues with dry lips or lip products that suck moisture out of your lips you’ll be quite happy with how these provide moisture and lock it in throughout the wear.

Do check out the limited edition shades. Peach Sorbet and Sunset Beach are lovely and favs from this release.

    • the Muse

  • Tanya

    Love the orchid pink Ive been using it alot lately with the heat and its so moisturizing. The peach sorbet and sunset are more flattering on you, than the light pinks. Is the sunset orangy at all? I havent seen all of them in person,

    • the Muse

      I agree! I look too zombie-like in the paler shades tanya ;-D no, no orange, it’s a bronze-y gold shade.

  • Sarita

    Those are pretty – I was curious about them. They still look pretty pigmented on you and lovely as well. May have to get your 2 favorites.

  • Southern Gorgeous

    More good for me lippies? Yay! I just cannot get enough! I just want all the lip balms, butters, and tints I can get my hands on!

  • jenna

    these looked blah to me initially but i can’t believe how pretty and shiny they are. do you think they’re fool-proof enough to be swiped on without a mirror?

    • the Muse

      mmmm yeah, they are kinda balmy…shouldn’t be a problem to slip them out, on, and go without a mirror!
