Bobbi Brown ART STICK LIQUID LIP

The newest launch in the world of liquid lipsticks from Bobbi Brown. Just about when you think I’ve had enough of drying, deathly looking liquid lipsticks, heres comes Bobbi Brown. But unlike most liquid lipsticks, these are different….more on that later.

The brand claims these liquid lipsticks to be super-pigmented, squeezable liquid lipstick. Delivers semi-matte, full-coverage color that’s creamy, moisturizing and lightweight. Plus, the long-wearing formula stays color true for gorgeous all day wear. The 17 shades choices range from nudes, pinks, deep reds and berries to bright and bold shades.

First up, they are residents in 5ml plastic squeezey tubes with click on black plastic cap. The squeezing action took me back to Lancôme Juicy Tubes days….anyone remember those?

The product is dispensed as you squeeze the tube, and the application tip is straight cut plastic to spread the product on lips. No doe foot applicator or sponge for application. Some may say this is difficult to work with, personally I prefer this. It’s easier to dispense product as much as I want and gives a good visual to control how much product is being dispensed. Secondly I like mixing shades, and with this delivery system I feel like mixing oil or water colours on my palette.

Many said that after application the tube looked dirty, felt unhygienic etc since the colour was all over the application tip (see pic below). But to me this is far easier to clean with an alcohol swab than a sponge or doe foot applicator.

Now onto the formula, it is certainly super pigmented, little truly goes a long way. I noticed this was across all shades (nudes to deep reds and brights). However, deep reds and brights were pigmented enough to stain my lips.

Unlike traditional liquid lipsticks these did not feel uncomfortable or mask like on my lips. At one point I forgot I was wearing a lippie. No sickly, deathly looking lips. Much to my surprise it felt moisturizing. Yes after about 4-5 hours I did apply, some lip balm on top however point to note the pigment stayed on the lips. But lipstick or not, I always reapply lip balm as the day progresses.

Given the BAM pigmentation and lightweight feel of this product, I tried some on my cheeks for a pop of colour. Immediately this product reminded me of Bobbi Brown’s Pot Rouge for lips and cheeks. Except the pot rouge gives more sheer dewy finish on my skin while this is proper colour. I think these are great for cheek colour, especially during summer when you don’t want to feel excess layered products on your face. Another point is these are medium to full coverage (I realize this is not a foundation) or should I say stain to full dense opaque lipstick.

Given the versatility, convenience, pigmentation, lightweight formula of this product this would be great for a minimalist on the go or just about anyone. I for one know which shades are being moved to my office, to my handbag and some in car. Have you tried these, what are your thoughts, how would you compare these to other liquid lipsticks?

  1. These look nice! I agree, this type of applicator is probably more hygienic than doe-foot / sponge ones. My favourite shades are from the first batch – all those nudes – especially Honey Bare and Naked Pink!

  2. I find myself always drawn to the nude shades. Anything bold ends up getting all over my chin, teeth and hands. These look so pretty, and I agree with you – that applicator is much easier to clean than the typical doe foot applicators. xx

    1. Tifa, I guess we are also naturally drawn to nudes because they are so much easier to wear and pull through any time of day, any outfit and absolutely any occasion. Although I do love dark shades too, how does it get all over your hands?😆
