The Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color is a revolutionary matte lipstick formula that uniquely combines the look of a classic matte lip with incredible wearability. Creamy, moisturizing and highly pigmented, it glides comfortably onto lips but feels extremely lightweight. Not to mention, it’s got great staying power too.
Women who want a full coverage, semi-matte lipstick
How to Use
Apply straight from the tube or with the Lip brush on clean, bare lips, or over the Lip Balm. If desired, blot with tissue for a matte finish.
How It Works
Perfect Coverage in a Single Application/Intense Color Impact
- Creamy Matte Lip Color is formulated with an exceptionally high pigment load for intense color payoff in a single application. Traditionally, matte lipsticks are not offered in such a varied shade range because the more pigment that exists within the formula, the drier it tends to be.
Moisturizes and Conditions
- Creamy Matte Lip Color provides intense moisturization to the lips. This lip color is formulated with special emollients and soft waxes that form a conditioning barrier to lock in moisture.
- Creamy Matte Lip Color’s unique formula is designed to slightly soften with the warmth of the lips, providing full color release. Skin comfortable film formers and an extremely high concentration of pigments contribute to advanced wear that will not transfer, smear or feather for up to 8 hours.
The lipstick itself twists all the way, so the product does not stick out.

Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color in True Pink on my lips
* extremely pigmented, one swipe is all I need to get full color on my lips
* has a rich and creamy texture, so it glides like a dream. it really does, I swear.
* has mild pleasant scent, like a hint of caramel. It's almost unnoticeable.
* has a chic and sturdy packaging
* the tube twists all the way to end so it's easy to close without nicking the tip of the lipstick
* dries to a semi matte finish
* feels really light on my lips compared to typical matte lipsticks
* though it is a matte lipstick, I was surprised that it's not drying at all
* stays long on my lips, a good 5 hours before it starts to fade
* once it sets on my lips, it doesn't smear or feather even after drinking or eating
* no allergies experienced
What I don't like...
* unlike its claim, this is does transfer a bit but not as much as ordinary cream lipsticks do
* expensive, but worth it because this is the first matte lipstick I've tried that isn't drying and feels really light at the same time.
My rating: 5 / 5
Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color in True Pink Swatch
Overall, I really do like the formulation of this matte lipstick. It can be expensive but it works. If you want a matte lipstick that is very pigmented, isn't drying and feels really light on your lips, then this is for you.
There's just one thing that I'd like to point out. Before applying this lipstick, make sure to exfoliate or remove excess skin on your lips if there's any to get a really smooth finish.
Until next time.
