Smooth Operator . . . Bobbi Brown Rich Lip Colour SPF 12

Bobbi Brown has never failed me . . . yet. .


I thought I’d give a mention to her Rich Lip Colour lipstick’s texture with SPF 12.


The reason? This formula is so comfortable to wear.

It’s lightweight and so insanely pigmented, which is uncommon for pigmented lipstick with the staying power this has.

The secret, according to Bobbi Brown is the clear base, which allows the true pigment to shine through.

She’s always on the cutting edge of technology and is constantly improving her products. I love that.

These lipsticks also have an SPF 12 and are packed with vitamins A, E and C.

It smells of vanilla and you don’t need to apply lip balm underneath as you would other longwearing lipsticks, which can dry out lips. Even when you remove it, you don’t feel any dryness or see any chapping.


I apply mine with a lip brush and a line my lips with liner. I prefer to use a liner closest to my lip colour to not take away from the vivid colour of the lipstick.

Some companies market their lipsticks like an advertisement for eating disorders, telling you it will last for 25 hours if you don’t eat or drink. That’s just insane. For people who eat and drink, this wears for about four hours without fading and one swipe is all you need for reapplication.
