Beauty: Bobbi Brown Rich Lip Color in Soft Coral Review and Comparison

Hi Readers! 

       As summer is approaching, your beauty blogger is in the hunt for that perfect summer makeup. Summer makeup should be neutral yet with a pop of color, may it be in the eyes or lips. Since doing eye shadow makeup can be tedious, well a swipe of color on your lips can do the trick!

      Presenting, Bobbi Brown Lip Color SPF 12 in Soft Coral. I bought this when I was in the mall and this instantly caught my attention. The color look so tempting and the texture is creamy. As soon as the MUA put this on my lips, all I have in my mind then was “ I really need to buy this”.

This is a creamy, semi-matte lipstick gives lips instant polish with rich, full coverage. Wear alone or pair with lip liner or one of Bobbi's lip glosses - depending on your desired effect. Black lipstick cases feature metallic chrome detailing. 

To make it more visual, I compare with my other peachy lipsticks

            From left to right: Max Factor Pearl Orange, Covergirl Rapture, Bobbi Brown Soft Coral

Max Factor is more of pearl shine effect on the lips, the color is more intense compared to Bobbi brown Soft Coral which will fall in the shade of orange.

Covergirl Rapture is more of that light orange shade, like a peach one and is lighter than Bobbi Brown Soft Coral. This will tend to settle on the lines of the lips

Bobbi Brown Soft Coral is true peachy orange and with peach undertone to it.

Based on the pics above. Pearl Orange on the left is a true orange. At the middle is the Rapture which is light and the Soft coral on the right which a bit redder..

When applied on the lips, here is what it looks like:

What I love most about Bobbi Brown Rich Lip Color in Soft Coral?

  • ·         It’s creamy and highly pigmented
  • ·         It’s very moisturizing to the lips
  • ·         Shiny (no lipgloss needed)
  • ·         Has SPF 12
  • ·         This will not look pale for Morenas

What I love most about Bobbi Brown Rich Lip Color in Soft Coral?
  • ·         It can accentuate the lines of your lips if dry or chapped
  • ·         The color doesn’t stay too long on my lips
  • ·         Pricey (Php 1,100 at Rustan’s)

Overall, I can give this lipstick a rating of 7 out of 10. If you’re looking for that peachy/coral lipsticks then this is a good try but not a must try for me. There were other coral lipsticks in the market that you can avail in a much cheaper price since there is no harm in exploring more beauty products out there! Happy beauty shopping!
