Bobbi Brown Cosmic Lily

This post is dedicated to my mum. Who I love very much and who gave me this lipstick as a little surprise when I was back home.

We have this theory that we can read each other's minds - even thousands of miles away - and this is an example of what we mean.

A week or so ago I looked at the Selfridges site and saw these limited edition L'Wren Scott/Bobbi Brown collaboration lipsticks and thought: "nice...I like that purple one". Lo and behold - the purple one turns up the day after I arrive back in the UK - a trip my mum had no idea I was making.

See...?????

The lipstick is a beauty. It's a soft-matte finish - long lasting but with enough of a light gloss to keep lips hydrated.

This kind of tone looks quite "brave" in the packaging but when applied it's very wearable - a purple/pink.  Considering that Pantone's colour of the year is Radiant Orchid, this also seems like a very fitting choice for 2014!



I wore it immediately with my usual smudged light smokey eye, oodles of foundation and...well I was wearing my pyjamas....

You can buy it on Selfridges like my mum did :)

I am back in Dubai now so normal service will resume. I am really really trying hard to do the one-post-a-day thing so fingers crossed I can reach that kind of frequency. I like blogs that update often and I think in the past I have been a bit lazy. So with that in mind, see you tomorrow :)

  13. Hi, Laura, is it hot in Dubai at this time of the year? when it is too hot I can't wear any lipstick or lip gloss, can you? I liked the color of the lipstick, I have always been evading to wear bright lipstick, may be I should give it a try :) <3 Zhanna, www.stylehenge.com

  19. Wow! Looking at the bullet, I was definitely not expecting the shade it came out on your lips! It's gorgeous! And I definitely agree that it slips in nicely with the Pantone shade!

  20. So beautiful on you! I'm trying to move away from the nude nude make me look ill kind of lipsticks. This would be a beautiful way to ease myself into something more flattering :)

  24. What a gorgeous shade! I have yet to try Bobbi Brown products but I'm mostly looking at their cheek and eye products. Their lip products look like things to consider as well now too!

  29. Don't you just love moms? I personally think that no person in the world can really know us better than our own mothers. And the lip color does look perfect on you! (Although I think the Mac Morange is still my favorite)
