How do you describe perfection ?
I am a lipstick junkie and have tried Russian red ( looks orange on me ) , ruby woo ( too blue , boo hoo ) and everything Chanel and Nara ever made. This lipsticks wins. The color makes a statement without being full on bright , has just enough brick in it to warm the skin and stays put. I mean , what more do you want in a lipstick. If a guy were adorable …

So, you want to wear red but feel like most reds look scary? This is red hot color that you can make as sheer or thick as you want. I tried it with a very light outline of Mac's Brick liner and it was perfect. Better staying power than most glosses. So WHAT if it's a little sticky? Its a gloss for cring out loud. I think glosses are especially wearable for women as they get older that …Read more

Blue based, almost fuschia liner. Matches Mac Red, Glam, Ruby Woo...but I just don't like this nearly as much as Brick liner. Is it just me, or is the formula different? I find Brick liner to be a much more flattering color on my slightly olive skin, and Cherry looks almost pink, which I don't like. I can see Cherry being absolutely stunning on a pale skinned, blue eyed dark brunette …Read more

Deepest, darkest vampy chic around. This "blushed black" (or, purple if you prefer) is not for everyone, but if you are one of the lucky ones that can pull this off, you're gonna be gorgeous. This is one of these colors that is so dark and intense that I think it must be mentioned that your colouring is important,for certain, in gauging whether you can wear this, but you need …Read more

Love, love, love this lipstick. Bobbi's colors are so unique-you just won't find many duplicates. Desert Plum is a magical cocktail of berry/plummy brown that is perfect for fall, but I like it so well that I may toss the "rules" aside and wear it year round. Brightens my fair/olive skin and is a nice contrast again dark hair. Ideal for daytime, can be vamped up for more …Read more

A "flushed red"? Nope. Let's be clear-this is a very pretty color which works well with my dark brunette hair and light/olive coloring, but I see it as more of a plummy/deep rose with maybe juuust a hint of brown. I think in the Bobbi Brown world this stands out as more "red" than most of the neutrals she is so famous for. I see several comments about taste, which I …Read more

Lipstick - Bobbi Brown - Lip Shimmer - Crimson

My hands down favorite red for daytime wear, perhaps for all time. I am a red lipstick fanatic and trust me on this! The problem with many red lipsticks is their finish and their lack of color dimension. Crimson has a soft, almost metallic finish that makes it unique. It reminds me of the discontinued Chanel lipsticks from ten years ago (Jewel, Garnet), which were slightly metallic as well, and …Read more

This lipgloss, used correctly, is amazing. It is an expensive, tiny little package, but just the tiniest dab over lipstick transforms and softens the look into something just soo pretty. It looks gorgeous over Bobbi Brown's Crimson lipstick. and darker plum and berry tones. So many brunettes like strong color for lips, but dark/bright colors can become garish as we age. A tiny dab of this …Read more

Gorgeous color, long lasting formula, and I agree with the poster who says it works well with Mac's Vino lipliner. A perfect combination. I normally do reds, but this duo pops right off my face and works when I want to do a bit more eye makeup. Not for the faint of heart, but show stopping-feminine .I was looking for something to wear with my Vino liner, and Mac's Diva was too dark for …Read more

definitely the brightest red I can get away with wearing- I usually do better with more of a brick red (think Mac Viva Glam1) , but this is a nice one for evening or anytime you really want to brighten up your whole face by calling attention to your lips. That said, this isn't clownish or garish. A very classic, true blue red (to me) , however, I can see it on either cool or warm tones. I …Read more
