Bobbi Brown's Pink and Red Collection introduced one new Sheer Lip Gloss ($23), Cherry, and another that's a limited-edition, Pretty in Pink. I purchased both, but wasn't able to get swatch photos for you until this past weekend.
The Sheer Lip Gloss formula is super-sheer and wearable. The translucent finish makes bold color easily wearable and is designed to enhance the lips. Wear it on its own for sheer color or swipe it on top of lipstick for extra shine.
In my photo, above, Pretty in Pink is shown on the left, with Cherry on the right. Both are extremely sheer on the lips. My watch photos were taken in full sunshine.
As you can see, Pretty in Pink is beyond pale. It has a little bit of pink color, but it's not unique - within the Bobbi Brown line or compared to the pastel pinks offered by other brands. Cherry does offer some color, but it's not red. Not even close. In fact, some of the reds of the Pink and Red Collection are actually pink, which I find a bit strange.
In the collection, there is a red nail polish and a red Creamy Matte Lip Color. The other "reds" are pink. So when you go for that mismatched pink and red look, make sure to wear real reds.
