Last month i attended the opening of the Bobbi Brown store in Ambience mall Gurgaon and was gifted these goodies to try out.
You can read about the EVENT HERE
Bobbi Brown Art Stick comes in 8 shades.
See the swatches of all the shades HERE
Will Review the Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Eye Liner Scotch soon.
I will be swatching and reviewing the shade Electric Pink.
It has the classy black Bobbi Brown signature look.
The bottom shows the shade along with the name.
These are not twist up pencils like the REVLON lip stains (Reviewed HERE) or the Clinique Chubby sticks.
It is a pencil which needs sharpening.
Fret not as it comes packed with a Chubby sharpener which i find absolutely handy.
I'm not a big fan of pencils because-
1.I am lazy.
2.The product wastage which happens during sharpening leaves me broken hearted.
Of course it is travel friendly and the lid fits snugly on the pencil.
But be careful not to let the tip of the art stick come in contact with hard objects.
They are very soft and dent easily.
When swatched on hand it gives a bright pink color.
But on my lips it turns into a warmer shade.
I have this problem with Pinks while with red the true color shows up.
However on my friend it was almost neon pink.
It is very pigmented and one swipe is enough to get full coverage.
TEXTURE & STAYING POWER-
The texture is similar to the Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lipsticks.
They glide on smoothly without any tugging or pulling.
Though these are creamy it does not bleed.
It has a semi matte finish.
Yet doesn't dry out my lips nor get in between the lines.
Staying power is 5-6 hours.
Of course it gets easily transfered while drinking tea/coffee but it stays on as a pigmented lipstain.
And you need to rub it well with plain tissue/make up remover to get rid of it.
TWO IN ONE
This stick can be used as a Lipstick and a Blush at the same time.
I have used it as both in the FOTD
PRICE- Rs.2100. for 5.6 gm.
I feel like if you are a Lipstick person it is better to buy the Creamy Matte Lipsticks which retails for
It is indeed a great product but if you can get the same formula from the same brand at lesser price then Creamy Matte is a better option.
However if you are a beauty
hoarder lover then do get one for your vanity kit.
It is not a Must-have product but hey!! if we only buy Must-haves then we won't be beauty bloggers in the first place :p
