This is a great lipliner but too similar to WW 666. It is a warm metallic bronze color.
This is nice color but it is too similar to WW 666 which is less than a dollar. It is also similar to LM lipliner in chesnut and VS plum nude lipliner. It is just a tad bit different. I cannot justify spending $29.50 on something when I can buy it for a $1.00.

Sweet Sorbet is a wonderful color. It is a pink mauve lipstick. It is the lipstick that the model is wearing in the wet shine nail color advetisments. The only problem is the color fades pretty quickly. If you do not mind reapplying that often I recommend this lipstick for LLLs, FFFs and MMMs.
Marquise is a red color with a subtle hint of brown. It is more on the cool side but a very wearable red that would look good on many skintones. It is slightly warmer than prestige spark. I don't think I will buy this( I got a mini tube as a gwp) I hardly wear reds that much and I already have prestige spark, chanel force, club monaco stain etc.
Amaretto is a deep berry rust color with shimmer. It looks great when paired with LM amber rose glaze. It has a perfume flowery taste which I just love but it might annoy people that don't like fragrances. I do like this lipcolor which I got as a GWP but I already stockpiled Club Monaco alloy and beam lipstick which is a similar to this color. When I finish them I might buy this again.
Lipstick -Laura Mercier - Lip Kisses in Rose Quartz

Rose quartz is a dark rose pink color. It looks fine on me but I do not reach for it that often. It leaves a white film on your lips after a while.
Lipstick -Laura Mercier - Lip Kisses in Berry Slush

Berry Slush is a pretty color. It is a warm fushia berry color. I like this color better than rose quartz. It goes on somewhat sheer so it is not too bright. The taste is unique like vanilla. I like the fact that it has sunscreen. I do not like the fact that the lipstick leaves a white film on your lips. You have to keep checking up on this lipstick to make sure there is no film.
I agree with the previous reviewer. It does look very scary in the tube a bright coral/orange color. Thankfully, it goes on somewhat sheer. It looks like a pretty warm pink coral on my lips.
Lipstick -Bobbi Brown - Shimmer Lipstick - Rosebud

Rosebud lip shimmer is a frosty mauve pink with lots of shimmer. You can pair this with different l/g to get a different look. It has less shimmer and is more wearable than Chanel blizzard. It is great to pair with smokey eyes. I am not sure if I would this without the smokey eyes though. It is a great going out at night lipstick.
What a pretty pink lipstick for the spring and summer. It is pink lipstick with mauve tones. SO pretty!! It has subtle shimmer too. It looks so pretty when paired with pale pink blush. This is a great lipstick for FFFs like me. BB sand/warm sand gals
Lipstick -Bobbi Brown - Lip Color - Sandwash Pink #22
sonnie_art 12/31/2003 9:36:00 PM
Sandwash pink is a pink brown lipstick on the nude side. It is pretty matte. I do not like to wear it alone; like to pair it with bb lipgloss in buff for the nude lips looks. This is better than beige l/s on me but I like rasberry shimmer better on me than this. This sandwash pink lipstick is good to wear when your eyelids and cheeks are full of shimmer. I am not sure if I will buy this again. I recently aquired a mini version of Laura Mercier tea rose l/s and I haven't decided which I like better. They are similar that there is no need both unless you really love nude pink lipsticks.
This is a nude color for the lips. This lipcolor is the one the girl on the back of the Bobbi Brown teenage beauty book is wearing. Since we have similar skintone/haircolor I needed to buy everything she was wearing. (i just loved the makeup) I think she was a bit darker than me because beige lipstick looks dull and washes me out. Sandwash pink is a sister of beige and looks much better on my skintone. The pink tones in sandwash pink makes it a better nude for me. I think beige lipstick would work for people that are MMMs or maybe even for people that are PPPs. I am an FFF and it just does not work for me.
Plum shimmer is a wonderful lipcolor that is plum with subtle shimmer. It is more purple and plum than kir shimmer but such a nice color. It is a great winter/fall color for FFFs.
This consists a few mini samples of the Tony and Tina line. The kit contains a "Herbal Aroma Lipgloss in Prophetess, Nail Paint in Sociable, Herbal Eye Base in Ivory, Cosmetic in Nude, Glitter Pencil in Clear/Silver Glitter, Cosmic Lights in Transcendence, and a chrome mirror." I found the kit nice but overall too light for me. This would suit PPPs or LLLs. I am a FFF. The lipgloss was a sheer gold with a hint of bronze. The nail color is an ivory gold. The herbal eye base in ivory is too light for me, it would suit PPP or LLLs better, the color was a pale banana yellow. The cosmetic in nude is nice but it might be a touch too light for me to use as a highlighter. I think I would able to pass this off as a highlighter, and it says you can even use it on the eyes or anywhere else. Darker skintones might only want to use this on the eyelids. The glitter pencil was a far too spacey silver(think of the color of the Muppets costumes from Pigs in Space) that it would only be ideal for clubbing or going out. The cosmic lights in Transcendence is a nice glitter that changes into a gel once it is applied to the skin. It is a wild chunky purple glitter with flecks of mini silver glitter. Nice but because of the purple, can only be use on the eye lids or lips. It the chunky purple glitter reminds me of the lancome blueberry blast glossimer. The case is very cute. I would not buy this again because I only liked the cosmic lights, the rest was too wild, or too light for me to justify spending the $25. This would be great for PPPs or LLLs.
