Bobbi Brown Lipstick Swatches in Raisin, Blackberry and Brownie

Bobbi Brown feels like such a grown up cosmetics line. Sleek and heavy black & gold packaging, a sophisticated and distinctive logo, a wide range of everyday neutrals, plum, reds and pinks.

Yep, this is your older sister’s makeup of choice. Then you go and steal her makeup bag and she smacks your hands for doing so. True story. This happened to my younger sister. 😛

I tried on Brownie once, and I really like it. I need to test it out more. Blackberry is my least favorite because it’s quite patchy and sheer. It’s way too dark for me and it doesn’t flatter my skintone well. Raisin is a nice shade for brown skin. It’s a good everyday, no-fuss shade.

Do any of these look like lipsticks you’d want to try?
