Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color in Jenna (2) and Red Carpet (1)

I originally just bought Bobbi Brown's new lipstick in Jenna but the formula is so lovely I had to get Red Carpet too. Unlike most mattes Brown's new incarnations are really easy to apply, they aren't drying and they last for *ages* on the lips. Bobbi says on her new lipstick:

"After years of blotting lips to create a matte stain, I was inspired to create the ultimate matte lip color." 

And I'd have to say that these are really rather good. 









Jenna is a bright orange-red but not so bright that it's difficult to wear. Red Carpet is a rich red with a coolish tone to it, again this is incredibly wearable. Both the swatches above are only swiped once so as you can see they're packed full of pigment.

  1. I might give Red Carpet a try. I've been looking for a good shade of red lipstick for a while now and it's so difficult to find a good one! xx
