Bobbi Brown’s (Rasp)Berries: Swatches and Comparison of Lipsticks in Hot Raspberry- 02, Blue Raspberry- 05, and Bright Raspberry

I love to search for patterns and compare similar things. So when I recently tried on Bobbi Brown’s Nourishing Lip Color in Bright Raspberry, I asked myself, “how many different raspberries from Bobbi Brown have I worn over the years?” The answer was: “a lot!” Along with the “Peonies” and the “Pinks,” the “Raspberries” are generally the colors from Bobbi Brown that I love and own.

Here I’ve pulled together three different, current Bobbi Brown “raspberry” colored lipsticks to admire and compare:

1. Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Color in Hot Raspberry- 02;

2. Bobbi Brown Nourishing Lip Color in Bright Raspberry; and

3. Bobbi Brown Creamy Lip Color in Blue Raspberry- 05.

This is a well rounded group: along with the Nourishing Lip Color line, the Creamy Lip Color and Sheer Lip Color lines are also represented.

IPKN Twinkle Lips and Arrow Boost Color Enhancing Lip Balm – Review, Swatches, and Ingredients (Color Adjusting Series Part 3)

Color Adjusting Lip Series: Part 3

Have you heard of the brands IPKN and Arrow? They were new to me as of about a month ago. I noticed them on Birchbox.com, where Arrow is being sampled this month. I don’t know the whole scoop on IPKN– I could have sworn it was a Korean brand, but then I found out that its name stands for: “Independent Professional Knowledgeable New Yorker, IPKN.” So, perhaps it’s a Korean brand made for New Yorkers…? I’ll stop foolishly speculating. But if you do know, please comment at the bottom of the post.

I picked these two brands to sample because they both make a color adjusting lip balm and were not outrageously expensive. So come along while I introduce these guys and show you some swatches.
