Holy cow, this is good lipstick. I've never been one for HE lipstick. I usually stick to the drugstore. However, I decided to buy Uber Nude from the new Pretty Powerful collection. The color is fine, nothing too exciting, but it fills a void in my collection. What I do really like is the formula. It is amazing! It stays on really well. It's not matte but it's not really that creamy either. Unlike some other posters, I don't detect any smell. There is a slight taste, but it's not that bad. Overall, I think I'll be checking out other colors by Bobbi Brown.

I love this formula! It's moisturizing, yet rich. I have Old Hollywood, which I think is one of the best red lippie I ever tried, and Heather Pink which is for everyday wear. Will keep an eye on this collection. :)

I brought lilac and I'm in love with this lip shade. Finally, my HG lipstick. It's amazing with my NC 37-NC 40 skin. I've always been on a search for a cool pink tone lipstick. Although, it's not as moisturizing, there's always lip balm to fix it. I'm gonna but another to keep in my locker.

I bought Lilac which looks a lot better swatched on my arm than on my lips. It looks kind of blah once applies. It looks more pink on my arm and more pale violet on my lips. But my lips are kind of pale and maybe that's why. Blue Raspberry is better on me. I did not like the matte finish at first but it wears well with a little lipgloss, so I put popsicle gloss over this lightly so the lipstick will still last without getting goopy and I like it better. I like the creamy formula better, but I can't use gloss with it or it wears off too fast. So I am keeping it just so I can change it up with glosses. I really like it with smashbox gloss in Ecstacy-sp?. It is a sheer blackberry color. Maybe I would like this formula better in desert rose which is not a lighter color than my lips and one sheer coat would be enough. I think if you have pale cool tone skin and like a light color with a smoky eye, and the nude colors are too peach, beige, or orange, then this would make a good pale color for that look. This lipstick feels good on, I personally just don't care for the matte look. Update: Changing to 4 lippies. I have noticed that if I apply this on bare lips and let it sit a few minutes, the color darkens to the lilac color that I thought it was when I swatched it. I can then add a little gloss or balm and it is not too matte. This is one of my favorite colors now. I wish I liked it just as well without gloss, but I guess there is no perfect lipstick out there for me.

The line of Rich Lip Colors SPF 12 has really grown on me!
I initially purchased Heather Pink which is a muted rose with brown undertones, somewhat along the lines of BB's regular lip color in Brownie, with just a tad more red. Then I got Soft Nude and Lilac which sadly were both Limited Edition and Twig, which is a soft pinkish brown, similar to BB's regular lip color in Hot Cocoa.
For the Rose Gold Collection in Spring 2012 Bobbi Brown extends the line of Rich Color SPF12 to 19 colors, adding a coral, and several rosy nudes and neutral golden beiges. So thankfully that line of lip colors now has a more complete spectrum of color offerings.
Formula: Soft and semi-matte, good lasting power, comfortable feel on the lips. Natural looking, good coverage. To me, the SPF 12 protection is another plus.
Packaging: Matte black tubes, elegant looking and holds up very nicely even after carrying a lipsticks in a purse for weeks on end.
Overall: This has become my favorite formula in the Bobbi Brown lipsticks!

I'm not impressed. The sunscreen taste is disgusting (unless you like the taste of Coppertone on your lips, lol). And the formula doesn't last on my lips at all. I purchased "Bikini Pink", which is a washed-out, very light pink/beige. I suppose the color would be okay if you have fair skin & wanted a pinky-nude lip. I have medium skin tone & need to warm it up with another lip color. I also found that this formula makes my lips tingle & dry out. Wouldn't repurchase this in any color....yuk.

I wanted to love these lipsticks so badly. As soon as I saw them online, I couldn't wait to buy three gorgeous colors: Sweet Nectar, Guava and Mod Pink. All were my dream shades for spring and summer. The formula felt nice on the lips but didn't wear well for me. And the deal-breaker was the overwhelming taste of sunscreen. Finally I had to return them (thank you, Nordstrom).

I originally bought this in Bikini Pink, but didn't like it and exchanged for Bare Pink....LOVE!!! I have to apply a little concealer to tone down my lip lines....Looks awesome with MAC Cremesheen glass in Boy Bait!!!

I own 2 colours, bikini pink and sweet nectar and like almost everything about them.
bikini pink is such a beautiful colour even though I have tan skin.
sweet nectar comes out a bit too orange to my taste but I don't mind it too much.
but one thing I am not so sure about this lipstick is the taste.
It tastes a bit like medecine or something.
I read through the reviews but didn't find anyone else has the same problem. maybe it is just me.
I am thinking to get another colour from this collection too.

I have never owned a Bobbi Brown lipstick before this, just some of her glosses. I am very fair, using a combo of porcelain and Ivory in BB foundations. My skin is cool and any warmth , be it orange, yellow or brown in a cosmetic looks orange on me. I once gave my sister a nearly new lipstick that was pink color according to the label, but it had enough warmth that it pulled orange on me. Looked hot pink on her though.
So I e-chatted with a Bobbi consultant on line. Told her of my concerns. I was attracted to the Mod Pink but saw a swatch on line where it was described as warm flamingo pink. She assured me that Mod Pink was my color and recommended Bikini Pink too. So I got them and I'm happy with them.
Mod Pink is bright, happy but not cartoonlike. Bikini Pink is a perfect nude for me. Very retro- Deneauve. The formulas are drier than a moisturizing lippie, but they do last a good while. I did not reapply until nearly lunch.
The cases seem fairly standard, no bells or whistles or one-handed lipping. I would give that higher marks because simple is good, but want to see how durable they are. I have been disappointed with BB packaging before, namely in some of her bronzer compacts.

While I liked this lipstick, I prefer BB's creamy lipsticks. These feel just a little dry to me, which is to be expected with the more matte finish. I have Bikini Pink, and I love the color. It's really a flattering, pretty pink for spring. If it were creamier, I'd be sold.

Grace Kelly. That says it all. My makeup artist plucked Plum Rose from the counter and I saw its potential as a bright but not too bright warm weather colour. It was thunderously more than that. Plum rose is just as stated with brown but not too brown undertones so this is perfect for day. It transforms you into a movie star "of the days", not a cheap kardashian-type celeb. The formula is way, way better than a typical BB lipcolour because it is moisturizing and feels good on the lips. Why they can't do all their lip colours like this is beyond me. I am fair (BB sand foundation) with blue eyes and highlighted blonde hair. Although I think this has potential for a wide range of complexions.This is best worn with just eyeliner, and a soft blush making warm weather makeup even easier.

I am such a sucker for new l/s, so I got this in Mod Pink on impulse the last time I was in Nordstrom. It's a very pretty color, true pink with a touch of warmth, and it does indeed have a "mod" 60s look - not as intense or bright as some have said, but it is BB. However, the feel & staying powder are only so-so, and that's not really acceptable at this price point unless I can't live without the shade. I don't mind paying for something if it's unique or something I really love, but this isn't one of those. It will be great for spring & summer and I'm sure I'll wear it often then, but I doubt that I'll buy it again.

WOW! These are some bright lipsticks. I like the formula. They are not drying, very lightweight, and long lasting. I purchased Mod Pink which on me is a hot pink color with cool undertones. I can soften it by first applying lip balm and then a light layer of lipstick. I think I will be purchasing a few more colors soon. Great lipstick!

The formula of these lipsticks is good. They are very pigmented and you only need one coat to achieve the color seen in the tube. They have a semi-matte finish. To me, the texture is drier than other BB formulas. I usually buy Creamy Lip Color so thats probably why I think that.
I purchased it in Bikini Pink which a medium shade of pink and I think it has cool undertones. Its very wearable and pretty.
