Uber Pink

There’s always a first time for everything. And for this entry, I’ll be featuring my first ever lipstick from Bobbi Brown called Pink Kiss* from the Uber Pink Collection. Well, first of all – this collection certainly slipped through the beauty cracks unnoticed because I haven’t heard much about it at all. I do think it deserves more attention though, especially from pink lovers around the world. As I mentioned, I haven’t tried any lip products from Bobbi Brown yet but have heard great reviews on their Creamy Matte lipsticks which I’ve been dying to try. Pink Kiss is part of the Lip Color range which is Bobbi Brown’s original formula infused with beeswax and Vitamins C & E. It is described as full coverage creamy with a semi-matte finish. bbpink3

The Lowdown

Bobbi Brown Pink Kiss is a pale blue-based pink that would usually make me shudder because I am afraid of ze washed-out look (*ehem*MAC Angel/Creme Cup*). It’s not as milky pink as the two mentioned because there’s a tiny hint of coral preventing it from being a true baby pink which I usually shun. I instantly thought of MAC Betty Bright when I swatched it on my arms as I thought they looked similar (except Betty Bright is brighter and much more neon-like). An everyday Betty Bright? SCORE!  As for texture and consistency, it’s very creamy with a bit more slip than I’m used to when it comes to cream lipsticks. It does have full coverage in two swipes, three if you’re looking for a super saturated look. It does have a slight tendency to accentuate dry flakes but nothing too crazy that I would want to just wipe it off and not wear it instead (*ehem* MAC Cremesheens). I surprisingly find the formula lightweight and comfortable to wear without drying my lips at all. A cream formula that doesn’t make my lips peel-y and cracking? ANOTHER SCORE! bbpinkkiss4bbpinkkiss6 I don’t find it hydrating or moisturizing, though. But I’d take that over lipsticks that make my puckers crack. It has great wear-time for a cream lipstick, lasting a good four hours with a meal, coffee and iced tea in between. Usually cream lipsticks last only two hours tops on me before I need to reapply (which I actually don’t mind doing as long as the formula isn’t drying). bbpinkkiss5

Final Thoughts

My first impression of Pink Kiss when I popped open the cap, to be honest, was meh… but when I wore it, I fell in love with it. The shade is really a beautiful not-too-pale pale pink that I can see working well with light-medium skintones best. I’m not usually one to go for blue-based pinks, but I’m glad to have found one that finally works for me (thanks to the slightly coral tinge). I also find the cream formula forgiving (as compared to MAC Cremesheens I’ve shied away from permanently because they make my lips peel and crack). I would recommend trying it on, still, to see if it’s a blue-based pink that would work for you. If you’re more into bright lipsticks, Neon Pink is a permanent addition to the Lip Color range. I’m off to check out the Creamy Matte Lipsticks next after this encounter. bb The entire Bobbi Brown Uber Pink Collection is now available a Bobbi Brown counters in Rustan’s Makati, Rustan’s Shangri-la Mall, Essenses Rockwell, Rustan’s Ayala Center Cebu, SM Mall of Asia and SM Megamall. The lipstick retails for Php1,300 each. Only Php300 more than a MAC lipstick 😉

    Hey Shari, oh this shade looks GREAT on you! Neon Pink looks promising, too. I might have to take a look soon 🙂

    • February 28, 2014 / 4:14 pm

      Thank you for thinking so, Sunny! At first I thought maybe my eyes are just deceiving me and that I totally look washed out with this pale pink too:))
      BTW – – jealous with your recent RBR acquisition!! AHHHHH Rufous Tailed!!

    • February 28, 2014 / 4:14 pm

      It’s a nice shade of pink, indeed!

  2. February 27, 2014 / 4:31 am

    what a pretty nude pink! it looks good on you, not too pale for a nude lipstick 🙂
    I have not yet tried any lipstick from Bobbi brown, but this one sounds great ^^

    • February 28, 2014 / 4:15 pm

      Its a pretty nude pink indeed. Happy it found its way to me!
      I’ve been pretty blah about Bobbi Brown lipsticks too but surprisingly, this one is a nice cream one. Underrated, if I may say so myself.

    I haven’t tried their lipsticks. Their blushes could rival NARS’ though. I had a workshop in Bobbi Brown and I immediately turned into the serial swatcher I really am. Beautiful color!

    • February 28, 2014 / 4:18 pm

      I’ve swatched their blushes and I agree! The shade selection here is pretty basic lang, though. Almost bought one of their shimmer bricks before but resisted! LOL. I love love Nude Glow Shimmer Brick though but I found it too ‘bronzing’ 🙁 and the lipsticks are really good – especially the creamy mattes. This one is a creamy one and only semi-matte but my lips are surprisingly still intact after it faded!! 🙂 The creamy mattes are my next endeavor. Look at these:

      And yes, I’m wearing falziezzzz! Trying lang :)) I’ve had boxes of them for a long time now but never had glue HAHAHA! I found one from my sister the other day so I tried. My constant eye-touching ways will never allow me to wear them comfortably though. :'(

        OHEMGEE Red Carpet is calling to me! Just say matte red lipstick and BAM I buy it. I’m a sucker for anything red and matte. Most of my lipsticks are red. I mean, who needs 10 red lipsticks? (I DO!) I swatched the shimmer bricks and I was like glitterglitterglitterstayawaystayaway. They didn’t really appeal to me.

    this color looks great on you. and i guess makeup can be just like clothing – sometimes clothes look amazing on the rack but horrid on and vice versa. i get nervous with the kinds of pink colors in this collection with my own skin color but it looks great on you!

      I certainly agree with your observation Rae! I’ve had a few too many clothing picks that never saw the light of day because I was too stubborn and impatient to try them in the fitting rooms! LOL. So beautiful on the racks, but didnt fit my body type so BOO. Makeup is certainly the same!! Beautiful and shining in its armor, but when worn — ack! This one is thankfully in the other spectrum as I’m most amused at the shade on me after I tried it on 🙂

    This is such a gorgeous colour on you! I love soft dainty pinks that are versatile and this seems just the thing! I haven’t used anything from Bobbi Brown yet but would love to look into the shade!

    • February 28, 2014 / 4:20 pm

      Soft dainty pink – INDEED! Bobbi Brown’s lipsticks are certainly underrated. I’ve been to the counter recently and am amazed by the beautiful shades and finishes they offer.

    That shade is definitely something I’d love to try. Love how it looks on you. 😀

      Thanks Gellie! :*

    This is such a beautiful nude pink shade, it’s so posh and feminine! I’ve never tried BB lipsticks before!

  8. February 27, 2014 / 11:07 am

    To be honest, BB is not my favorite brand for makeup. You still managed to tempt me, though! Pink Kiss is a gorgeous color on you. The color looks like something I can carry in my purse and use anytime. 🙂

    • February 28, 2014 / 4:30 pm

      I dont have a lot of BB products, either. I’ve only ever tried the corrector and used it all up but hadn’t repurchased. Havent tried a blush nor eyeshadow but I liked their Nude Glow Shimmer Brick that I almost purchased as I just didnt wanna let go of it but found it a little too “bronzy” on me 🙁 I do like this first lipstick encounter though! I wil go explore their Creamy Mattes next.

    Wow, I really want this! I’ve never tried Bobbi Brown before. The brand has just never really appealed to me!

    • February 28, 2014 / 4:31 pm

      Same sentiments! I’ve only tried their corrector and it was good but never got me repurchasing. I am now enticed by their other lipsticks after this good first encounter, though. 🙂

  10. February 27, 2014 / 12:09 pm

    It’s too nude for my liking but it looks absolutely pretty on you! 🙂

    • February 28, 2014 / 4:32 pm

      Thanks, V!!! :* I thought it would be too nude for me at first too. I mean sa tube, it was super pale.

      • March 1, 2014 / 9:47 am

        It still looks pretty on you. Lahat naman e huhuhu 🙁 LOL

        Anyway, I saw the Maybelline Color Tattoos that were imported here kasi sabi mo medyo di mo nagustuhan. They’re made in China pala, so I’m assuming that they’re the Asian version. Ang panget nga nila. I swatched a few and ugh, they’re nothing compared the US versions. Maybe you should get a hold of a few of the ones made in the US. Baka yun mas magustuhan mo 🙂

        • March 1, 2014 / 1:21 pm

          Is that sooooo?? Kaya pala! I’ve tried it thrice (mixing two shades) and I always end up just erasing the whole eye look. Frustrating.

  11. February 27, 2014 / 12:17 pm

    Such a beautiful color! Ugh I haven’t found the right pink lipstick for me :((( And I am going desperate about it. 🙁 This lipstick is way too much for my budget, for now. Maybe soon. 🙂

    • February 28, 2014 / 4:33 pm

      Hi Elle!! Try WetnWild lipsticks!! 😉 I hope you find the right pink for you. It takes time, but you’ll instantly know when you find it!

      • March 1, 2014 / 1:40 pm

        Thanks for the recommendation, Shari! 🙂

    I think I’m too morena for that shade but it looks good on you. I’m such a makeup noob that when you mentioned “blue based”, I was looking for the blue tone in your lipstick. Haha!

    • February 28, 2014 / 4:39 pm

      Hihi. I was confused with the undertones at first, too but after reading up on them, it got easier to spot right away! 🙂

    • February 28, 2014 / 4:40 pm

      Super nice siya!!! 🙂

    • February 28, 2014 / 4:40 pm

      Indeed! Thanks for dropping by, Krisella!

    • February 28, 2014 / 4:40 pm

      Hi Phoebe!! Thank you, I think so too!

  13. February 27, 2014 / 6:21 pm

    Love the sahde, but I don’t think I can pull this off. This kind of pink doesn’t really look good on me. 🙁

    • February 28, 2014 / 4:41 pm

      It’s finding the right tone, Emae! 🙂 I used to think I couldnt pull off these shades either but this one hit the spot!

  14. February 27, 2014 / 9:26 pm

    Gorgeous! This pink is a perfect Shari shade! It really is an everyday Betty Bright! 🙂

    • February 28, 2014 / 4:41 pm

      Thank you for thinking so, babe! I love that it’s a perfect SHARI shade, YAY!!

  15. February 27, 2014 / 9:38 pm

    Oooh it definitely doesn’t look meh on you, it looks lovely!

    • February 28, 2014 / 4:42 pm

      Thank you for thinking so, love!! Appreciate the sweet words 🙂

  16. February 28, 2014 / 12:55 am

    it’s so pretty against your skintone… it does look similar to Mac Betty Bright but it’s much more subtle. ang ganda talaga ms Shari!

      Agree! Super subtle Betty Bright and much more comfortable to wear 🙂 Thanks Hollie!! :*

  17. February 28, 2014 / 9:50 pm

    A toned down version of Betty Bright? I want to try it asap!

  18. March 2, 2014 / 10:58 am

    I absolutely love the color. It is not too bright, not too shear. I have been researching on bobbi brown lately, and overall finding great reviews on their products.

    That’s a lovely pink nude on you, very pretty 🙂 I’ve not heard much about this collection either, I wanted to get the be pretty bronzer but that sold out in one day at my counter and they said they wouldn’t be getting anymore stock in, I am guessing its the same as the regular Antigua in the range so might have to pick that up instead xx
