Bobbi Brown Sultry Red Lip Color

Bobbi Brown Sultry Red Lipstick is one of four, limited edition lip colors that launched with the Bobbi Brown Holiday 2014 Makeup Collection. Sultry Red is one of those traditional Holiday red lipsticks that’s sure to please lovers of a matte yet comfortable wearing formulas.

Bobbi Brown Sultry Red Lipstick comes housed in a limited edition mirrored gold barrel for the Holidays. I’m not quite a fan of matte red lipstick but this is a gorgeous shade of pigmented classic cool blue based red. It applies opaque on the first swipe and has excellent wear of around six hours without transferring or migrating. It does leave behind a staining effect after fading. You do need to apply on well prepped lips as the color clings to drier areas but does apply with a creamy, even glide. The finish is a creamy satiny matte with no shimmer or sparkle.

If you’re looking for a classic red you’ll definitely enjoy Bobbi Brown Sultry Red Lipstick however, I do kinda wish it was a shimmer formula as the two, limited edition Shimmer Lip Colors I reviewed from the same collection were quite gorgeous! I just think classic cooler reds are very repetitive for the Holidays and you might already have a few in your collection.

But none the less Bobbi Brown Sultry Red Lipstick deleivers excellent wear and pigment in a classic red shade.

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.

    Wow! This looks stunning on you!! But you’re right, as much as I would love to add this to my collection, I’m sure I have something similar in my ever-growing, out of control, lipstick collection. Thanks so much for sharing!

      oh my pleasure. I thought it was really a nice shade but very much a shade that’s common and likely everyone already has 🙂 Thanks Michelle!
