      I am always trying new Bobbi Brown lip colors. Her metallic lipsticks are very creamy, although her Creamy Lip Color collection carries her most moisturizing lipsticks, as I understand it. This shade Italian Rose keeps appearing in various Bobbi Brown sets in some of the department stores. I got a hold of it when I purchased Bobbi’s current holiday lip palette, which includes six lip colors and a lip brush for $45.

      After seeing the way this looks on my lips, I don’t think it looks like a rose color. It looks more like a subdued coral color or terra cotta color. That’s different from what I usually see in coral lipsticks. I normally think of coral lipstick as bright, but Italian Rose is like a


      softer version of coral mixed with a bit of cinnamon brown or caramel. So I don’t know why it is called Italian Rose. I would have called it “Terra Coral.”

      Anyway, I do like this color, because it is like a more neutral looking coral than I am used to seeing. So because of that, it will probably go with more colors of clothing than the brighter shades of coral do. And I think this lip color will appeal to women of all tastes — those who like coral lipsticks as well as those who like rusty brown lipsticks. The pigmentation of this lipstick is good. It is not a sheer lipstick, and I am glad about that, because I have sheer lip colors from other ...


      • cosmetic companies.

        I do not like the lip brush that is included in the palette. It is too full and fluffy. Those may sound like necessary features in a cosmetic brush, but for me, it would have been more helpful if the brush had a pointed tip. That would make it much easier for me to line and define my lips as I am applying the color. But lucky for me, I have a pointed lip brush that came with the Sephora lip palette that I own, so I will just have to use that brush instead. Of course the best way to apply it is directly from the tube. When I have lip color in a palette, I need to dip the

        brush into the color several times before I finally get enough lipstick on my lips. So it is faster to apply the lipstick directly from the tube. That’s the only thing I don’t like about lip palettes.

        I would recommend Bobbi’s Creamy Lip Color in Italian Rose, but I suggest that you buy the individual tube instead of buying the lip palette. Unfortunately, a tube costs $22, which is fairly steep. But if you buy it on Bobbi Brown’s website, sometimes they offer you free samples with a purchase. So you may want to look into that. Italian Rose has a kind of understated beauty. If you try it on at the Bobbi Brown counter before you go online, then you will see what I mean.
