Bobbi Brown Nourishing Lip Color Oil-Infused Shine


When is a Bobbi Brown lipstick not a lipstick...? When it’s much more like a comfy balm that nevertheless delivers a punch of colour to your lips.

This just won Favourite Bobbi Brown Lipstick Ever, as far as we’re concerned – and even within Bobbi’s lip range, it’s up against some stiff competition.

But as we get a little older, comfort has become much more important to us. And this is the Ecco shoes of lipsticks. The elasticated waist of lipsticks. The down-filled mattress topper of lipsticks.

Well, OK, so maybe we’re getting a little carried away, but it’s certainly among the comfiest lipsticks we’ve worn in a long time, thanks to a blend of lip-caring oils that include avocado, jojoba, babassu oils, an olive oil complex, cocoa seed butter and vitamins C and E, ensuring lips feel instantly, silkily conditioned no matter how dry and flaky they’ve become.

We’re told that longer-term, the ingredients will also help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Meanwhile? We’d wear this if it was a clear balm, frankly, but the colour and brilliant shine are a major bonus: 16 shades spanning Beige Gold to Black Plum (we’re especially loving Berry).

Nobody really needs an excuse for a new lipstick, right? But we just gave you several, anyway.
