Bobbi Brown Pink Ribbon Collection

Bobbie Brown Cosmetics Pink Ribbon Lip Collection

This year Bobbie Brown has included one of my all time favorite lip shades in the pink ribbon lip products. The Tulle lip color. Also included is a Pink Quartz Glitter Lip Gloss.

Tulle is just about the best neutral pink/natural shade for me. An often recommend tip for choosing such a shade is to try to match the color to the inside of your lip. This one comes out just right! It is also flattering for a wide variety of skin tones. The lipstick is also high quality in that it is creamy, smooth and well pigmented.  I haven’t tried the gloss.

The Bobbie Brown pink ribbon lip collection runs $40 for the set at fine department stores or at the Bobbie Brown website (linked above).

And now, about the balm, from the PR email :

Pin Up Balm lip balm is a fun throwback with modern appeal, and it’s as fun as it is functional.
