REVIEW: Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Colour Swatches!

I’ve been meaning to write about these lip products for almost a month now because they have become a staple in my makeup bag, but wanted to do the products justice by nailing the pictures.

Released as part of the Bobbi Brown Surf & Sand collection, they introduced 4 new colours into their Sheer Lip Colour range.  See my thoughts on 3 of them below!


#19 Summer Nude

#18 Sunlit Pink

#20 Peach Sorbet

As you can see, these lip shades are to die for.  Despite being ‘sheer’, they give a good amount of pigment to my lips making them so easy to apply and wear.  The have a lightweight formula which also makes them really creamy and with an added shine.

My favourite is Summer Nude (#19) which has replaced my favourite ever lipstick (Barely There by Sleek MakeUP) – shock horror!  It’s just the most beautiful pink brown nude – my lips but better shade.  Peach Sorbet (#20) follows closely behind for it’s stunning bright peach tones which really brighten my face up.
Sunlit Pink (#18) is my least favourite.  It’s a dark brown/bronze containing hints of gold shimmer, which sounds fantastic but I just can’t seem to pull off.  Saying this, I think it’d look stunning on darker skin tones and those with a tan.

These retail at £19.50 which I’d think was pricey for a sheer lipstick, but as these have such fantastic colour pay off I’m more than happy to part with the cash.  Also – I’m not too sure if these shades will be discontinued along with the Limited Edition Surf & Sand range, but I really hope Summer Nude isn’t because I can’t imagine life without it now!
(It’s totally the shade of lipstick I’d wear on my wedding day… Just saying… Bobbi Brown please take note)!

What’s your favourite sheer lipstick?

    It's nice to see a sheer lipstick that gives so much colour! I love all of the shades, so pretty!

    All these shades are so wearable! They all look quite similar on the lips I think but peach sorbet edges it for me 🙂

    Great post and swatches, they all look really lovely on you. A go to sheer lipstick for me is Mac's Syrup or Chanel Rogue Coco Shine – 54 (Boy).

    My favourite sheer lipstick is my Chanel "Saga" lipstick as it's such a beautiful pinky shade which compliments every make-up look. Adore these bobbi brown ones though..definitely tempted to make some purhcases!
