Capturelip10 Brights for 10 Days of Yucky Weather

When the weather forecast shows thunderstorms every day into the next week, I am more bummed than shocked. I predicted this summer would be a repeat of 2011 and I’m not far off track so far. With such little of the precious sunlight I live for, I am reaching into my makeup stash for some brights to keep things cheery.

Bobbi Brown Nourishing Lip Color – Almost Pink

I know I’ve shown you a lot of Bobbi Brown makeup lately, and it’s really because I fell in love with, and wanted to try almost all of, the new Bobbi Brown Nourishing Lip Colors. It seemed like every time I tried to buy Almost Pink (“A Pale Neutral Pink”) it was back-ordered or out of stock. But now I finally have it.

I’ll show you swatches and side by sides with similar colors from the Nourishing Lip Color line.

I like makeup. I enjoy looking at it and playing with it. And some days makeup even lifts up my spirits and makes me feel a bit better. Does that ever happen to you? Things are going all wrong, or you feel sick, or the weather is horrible, and out comes the makeup and you just feel happier?

This post is about the Bobbi Brown makeup that I decided to play with today.

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.

Bobbi Brown Lipsticks: left to right: Sheer Lip Color, Hot Raspberry- 02; Nourishing Lip Color, Bright Raspberry; and Cream Lip Color, Blue Raspberry- 05

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.

I had some fun today going through my stash of cosmetic samples. I found these two lipstick sampler cards from Giorgio Armani and Cle de Peau Beaute that I had forgotten about. Being that both Giorgio Armani and Cle de Peau Beaute lipsticks are pricey and cannot be found at any local makeup counters, I especially hang onto their freebies and delight in taking them out to play around on a rainy day (which it was today).
