Brand Overview

Rich Lip Color used to be rated average due to its low SPF rating, but now that the SPF rating is gone, the rating went up, because everything else about this lipstick is wonderful! It has an elegant, creamy texture that imparts (as the name states) rich color. Once on, this doesn’t feel slick or make a beeline into wrinkles around the mouth. The fragrance-free formula provides a range of attractive shades for those who prefer nude, coral, rose, and burgundy-red tones.

Pros:
  • Elegant, smooth cream texture that moisturizes without feeling slick or immediately moving into lines around the mouth.
  • Beautiful, rich colors that provide moderate to full coverage and good staying power.
  • Fragrance-free.
Cons:
  • Expensive.
Jar Packaging: No

Bobbi Brown At-A-Glance

Strengths: A good cleanser and eye makeup removers; some impressive foundations, with options for all skin types and preferences; very good blushes and eyeshadows (powder and cream); several top-notch mascaras; mostly excellent brushes.

Weaknesses: Multiple moisturizers in jar packaging, otherwise great products hindered with irritating fragrant oils or fragrance components.

It all began with lipsticks. In 1991, New York based makeup artist Bobbi Brown debuted a collection of ten lipsticks at Bergdorf Goodman, expecting to sell about one hundred units in a month. She sold more than that the first day. From there, it's been mostly success after success, as Brown launched her classic foundation stick, wrote her first book, Bobbi Brown Beauty The Ultimate Beauty Resource, and enjoyed continued attention as an in-demand makeup artist and beauty educator.

Today, Bobbi Brown's makeup that continues to excel with superior foundations, true matte blushes and eyeshadows, and with all of the other basics that are essential to anyones makeup wardrobe. It isn't the least bit surprising that this makeup collection continues to do so well, because for many it's one-stop shopping that combines classic makeup application techniques with enough fun-yet-functional products to keep customer's interest piqued season to season.

Turning to the skincare collection, there are a few excellent formulas, but unfortunately, many are packaged in a jar, which means their beneficial ingredients are rendered useless due to air exposure (and bacterial contamination from spatulas or fingers). In addition, some suffer from the inclusion of potent fragrant essential oils. Those that should be avoided are noted in their respective reviews. That aside, color is without a doubt Bobbi Brown's strong pointbut you will find a few sleeper hits among the selection of skincare products.
