Sheer Lip Colors ($25) first at Bobbi Brown's Web site. Then I passed the display at Saks. I had hoped to buy locally, and I was thrilled that I could - until I got the advance notice about the Friends & Family Sale. Oh well.
Bobbi Brown calls it "mistake-proof, no-mirror lipstick." Check. That's one reason I adore sheer lipsticks and glosses. They are forgiving.
Bobbi believes that lipstick should be quick and easy - and Sheer Lip Color is exactly that. This super-lightweight formula glides on smoothly and evenly, delivering a sheer and slightly glossy finish that’s highly wearable. Formulated with luxurious shea butter, murumuru butter, and apricot kernel oils, Sheer Lip Color rejuvenates and nourishes, improving the overall condition of lips instantly and over time. Plus, the unique translucent base allows its true color to last for hours without feathering. It's available in neutral, bright, and deep shades (the hardest part is having to choose).
Passion Fruit at the top of my arm was Loyd's choice, and I am so glad he "made me buy it." It's pink-a-licious. My own choices, which I selected pretty quickly, were #3, Pink Rose, shown in the middle, and #10 Carolina, shown at the bottom. I was aiming for a rose and a brown-rose, and I got them. Yea!
Even though these Sheer Lip Colors are scheduled to arrive at Bobbi Brown counters in May, both Saks Fifth Avenue, where I purchased mine, and Neiman Marcus have them available - as does Bobbi Brown's Web site. If you like sheer lip color, you must go see them. I love, love, love them.
