This dried my lips up so terribly. I brought it back. Also, it just didn't show up as much of a color on my lips...maybe too close to my natural lip color? SUPER DRYING.
I tried this lipstick at Nordstrom this past summer and passed on getting it at the time. But I kept eyeing it because I really liked how it gave me that 'MLBB' look for me.
So I bit the bullet and thanks to Sephora's annual $15 discount coupon, I got it. The texture is silky and light and it doesn't dry out my lips. I wear it with Pink Blossom gloss for an everyday natural look.
This is a great shade if you have pigmented lips.
I have been on the hunt for the perfect nude lipstick for about 20 years, or rather my lip but better MLBB. While I can't say this is the BEST nude color for me, it is pretty darn close. I like the consistency and how it wears, I like that there is no heavy fragrance. I will be buying this one again!
Great natural colour and feel. Would definitely purchase again.
Love this shade and formula. Creamy lipcolors are my HG lipsticks in lasting power, moisturizing feel and look. No perfumey taste either! It's like a pigmented, very long-lasting balm on me. It doesn't transfer much onto cups and lasts a good several hours- rare for me. It's creamy and thick, but doesn't feel sticky, heavy or unnatural. It's especially amazing in the winter, during which most lipsticks look dry and feathery. It applies evenly with no mirror. The shade is a lovely pigmented pinky rose on me. Rose Petal looks good on me, but Italian Rose looks awful. I have very pale yellow skin, dark hair and pigmented lips- IR looks too orangey. This is perfect with yellowy or neutral skin tones. A blueish tone isn't really noticeable, except for really neutralizing orangey tones. Perfect shade for everyday and neutral enough to wear with lots of colors. Love it!
I am a big fan of BB creamy lipsticks. They are great for efficiency, when I'm too busy to look in a mirror and too busy to do a layer of gloss or chapstick. This color is a great neutral for me. The blue base means that it works well with my ivory-based, pale complexion. And with my fairly pale natural lip color. It looks a bit plummy pink on me, which is a great MLLB for my coloring (again, fairly pale ivory skin, brown eyes, dark hair). This is not something that shows a lot of color, not bold, but I love it for work - looking professional and for a natural look.
This color is a great neutral for me, and to my eyes is a blue based brownish pink - slightly mauve but more pink and close to my natural lip color (actually lighter). I've been trying to find a color that is like my lip color but a bit more intense - haven't found it yet but this color suits me. It is a bit greasy but as I blot my lipstick and then re-apply and blot once more (so my lips are more stained than screaming "LIPSTICK") the gooey factor is eliminated. If I didn't blot this I would be annoyed by the cloying texture it would leave. I also use a lip pencil to control the color bleed.
I love this product. It is a lipstick and a lip balm in one, and it has some glossiness to it. This is a beautiful color. It is like a cool toned mauve color on me. This is a my lips but better color. The creaminess does wear well and doesn't dry my lips out. Absolutely love the formula.
Like many of Bobbi Brown's oddly-named products, Blue Raspberry is a bit of a misnomer. This is not a blue-based berry; in fact, I see no berry tones (which imply red or at least a mid-toned color in the purple family). In the tube, Blue Raspberry is a medium-light beigey-browned rose. Although it complements my fair, cool (NW15) skin, there is nothing unique about it, and it is like so many of the rosy brown lipsticks that I already own. In itself, that is not a bad thing. The texture is thick, gel like and sort of goopy, but that just gives it staying power. The finish, unblotted, is quite glossy, which I really like. I agree with the previous reviewers that Blue Raspberry has more oomph and less warmth/brown than Italian Rose, but it doesn't have *that* much oomph. Blue Raspberry is a very pretty neutral, about a half shade deeper and slightly more brown than Rose Petal, which is a slightly more face brightening lipstick on me.
Blue Raspberry is creamier than some of the other BB lipsticks I own, and it has fair staying power (a couple hours). I don't mind reapplying often because I'd rather use up a lipstick quickly than have it sit around, and I expect my lipsticks to be as nourishing as a lip balm so I can skip a step. No scent or taste that I can distinguish. And the color is light enough that no lip pencil is necessary, but MAC Whirl or Soar are good matches, as is Laura Mercier Nude and Prescriptives Dusty Rose. Essentially, any rosy-nude lip pencil will work. I do like the slim metal case; it's easy to carry in my front pocket with no one the wiser.
Love this natural shade, plummy mauve with a hint of pinky brown. It has all those elements! Goes awesome with Mac petticoat skinfinish. Lasted about 2 hrs, not as drying as some of the BB lippies.
Im an NC25 for reference, light & fair, pink lips naturally.
