I haven’t felt the draw to write about a beauty launch in so long. I burned out on newness early last year and not only did I lose interest in the ‘exciting’ new releases I was being offered.. I wasn’t even interested in shopping!
..but when these babies arrived, I knew things were turning around.
Something about a sheer, balmy lip colour brings the promise of warm weather and sunshine, don’t you think? I’m going to go and turn up my hot tub as soon as I’m finished so I can relax in the garden and pretend it’s already summer.
The tint is enough to give some colour without having to worry about unsightly wear or constant top ups. They’ve become my go-to work lip for just that reason. I usually stick to balms when I’m in the office but the raspberry shade has upped my game a little while still keeping my lips hydrated.. perfection!
Apparently the Extra Lip tint has been around for a while – you can find the originals online here – but the release of these brighter colours makes the whole idea all the more interesting and makes them a serious contender for you gloss lovers. I’m not sure I’d be so quick to recommend the very pale ‘bare pink’ etc – because you are then effectively just splurging on a high end balm – but I am definitely offering my endorsement to these berry shades to add a little colour during this cold snap.
I’ve only found the new shades from Bobbi Brown direct but I’m certain they’ll be at a counter near you!
