Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Colors

It’s almost Summer! Time for some sheer, lightweight lipsticks me thinks. Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Color ($25) is a newly launched range of what Bobbi calls mistake proof no mirror lipstick. I love you Bobbi but girl, me, applying lipstick of any kind without a mirror….oooo it’s such a mess. I don’t have Molly’s talents Bobbi.

Believe me I’ve tried application without a mirror and typically it ends up on my cheek, my nose, anywhere but my lips.

But…I am all about sheer, subtle lightweight lippies for Summer so your new Sheer Lip Color probably has my heart.

Take a look!

Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Color is a super lightweight formula that delivers the texture of a balm to your lips but has the color of a lipstick. They are available in 14 shades that range from lights to brights.

Although promoted as a sheerer lipstick they actually have excellent opaque color coverage and are formulated with shea and murumuru butter so lips are moisturized and hydrated through the wear.

Pink Rose, Nude Beige, Pink Blossom

They have an easy, smooth glide on lips and a buttery texture that’s lighter than Revlon’s Lip Butters and a touch heavier than Maybelline Color Whisper Lipsticks. These are flavorless and fragrance free.

I measure lipstick formula’s worth in how easy they apply on my lips without tugging and these have that gorgeous glide across lips that I favor. The texture reminds me of balm or butter of sorts but wears as long and strong as a lipstick at around four to five hours without eating or drinking. They don’t migrate and they don’t feather even on drier lips so they stick around fresh and vibrant as when I originally applied.

Although advertised as a sheer lip color, Bobbi Bobbi Sheer Lip Color brings plenty of pigment to the table in a lovely, lightweight formula for Summer wearing. I was surprised Bobbi didn’t fit in some SPF as well since she loves putting sun protection in many of her lip products. Outside of the lack of SPF they are as perfect as perfect can get. Weightless and beautiful to apply color!

Do check these out.

There’s even a shade called Bobbi which is a nude rose…must own that.

Available now at your fav Bobbi counter or online at

Tried ’em?

Would love to hear your thoughts!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Muse, Pink Blossom looks like a lively fresh coral on you. It’s lovely. On me, it’s straight to neon day-glo. The difference is amazing. Hmmm, need to figure out better bright color choices for paste white skin tone.

    • the Muse

      aw thanks trish! I was actually kinda iffy about the shade but you guys gave me a lot more confidence to wear it 😀

  • Seagulls

    Have two – Carolina and Black Plum – and I lurve them. I haven’t enjoyed a new lipstick formula this much in forever. Not super thrilled about most of the colors, tho.

  • blueraccoon

    I must have these. I mean, seriously. I *love* Pink Blossom on you–I think I need that one first *g*

      • blueraccoon

        Just ordered Pink Blossom *g* (And the new Guerlain Shine Automatique, Corail Ora, because Guerlain and I keep buying one of the LE Shine Automatiques when they get released. I may go back for Blanc Ora, though.)

        • the Muse

          sigh I wish I had more money to buy more guerlain SA, those things are absurdly gorgeous ;D

  • Courtney

    I have passion fruit and hot raspberry and LOVE!! Summer must haves. I am totally digging the pink rose. I’m going to be getting that ASAP. Thx, muse!!

  • Majick

    Every one of these colors works wonderfully for you. Pink Blossom is your “pop” shade and the other two are just downright pretty.

  • Tira

  • Jen

  • Nicole

    Can you tell me what blush you are wearing?? I just bought pink blossom and LOVE it! I have the same deep brown eyes as you….thanks 🙂

    • Isabella Muse

      I’m so sorry Nicole I can’t recall! this post is a bit old and I do so many looks daily I don’t technically remember what it was! Sorry 🙁

  • Noura

    Just bought Blushed Pink today and I think it looks pretty good on me. I usually don’t go for sheer lip colors but I liked the ones from Bobbi Brown. I think I will be getting Nude Beige or Bobbi next.
