Read My Lips: Bobbi Brown Lip Colour in Malt Shimmer (Scotch On The Rocks Collection)

Bobbi Brown Lip Colour in Malt Shimmer

When this gold Bobbi Brown lipstick first landed on my desk, I admit I didn’t know what to make of the colour. It wasn’t as if I was expecting a specific shade; let’s just say that brown wouldn’t be my first pick and this looked pretty darn brown in the bullet. Tsk tsk fussy much?

However, what a 180 degree turn this was when I swatched and finally wore it on my lips. It’s really beautiful!

This lip colour in Malt Shimmer is a limited edition one in the Scotch On The Rocks Collection by Bobbi Brown. The swatch looks quite ordinary and you’d even think it looks boring but somehow, the gold shimmer in the lipstick complemented very well with the shade of malt. I wore it in my review of the Dior Fleur des Vents Omotesando blush. I find that it complements my skin tone very well.

The lipstick itself is creamy and richly pigmented. It’s not a matte lipstick but it’s not very glossy either. It’s a good ol’ fashioned sort of creamy lippie that I enjoy. It doesn’t last long though and reapplication is definitely needed.

I usually sway towards peaches, pinks and reds but this time, I take my hat off to this unassuming shade that I thought would be dull but actually turned out to be beautiful on the lips. Lesson learned: don’t judge a lipstick by its, er, colour? 🙂

    That’s beautiful! I normally tend to swerve away from brown lippies as well, I find they really don’t suit my skintone at all, but I’d definitely give this a go, I think the little bit of gold would lift it a bit… Love that chic gold packaging as well!!

      Oh I agree. I think the gold bits helped a great deal. Brown lippies tend to wash me out but this one was a pleasant surprise. And oh yeah, all that gold packaging? Gorgeous!

    I had your same reaction. I didn’t think much of it at first, but then I saw the swatches and wow, it’s very pretty!

    I would not usually go for brown lippies either but this one seems quite nice and subtle.
    I like the shimmer effect!

      The gold shimmer definitely help lift the lippie from dull brown to cool malt. 😉

    I like brownish lipsticks but some dont really look great on me!
    I do love Clinique’s Black Honey and Revlon lip butters in Pink truffle though.
    Revlon Super lustrous in Rose Velvet is nice, but sometimes appears too brown on me (perhaps due to my super pale lips)

      Clinique’s Black Honey is such a gorgeous classic. 🙂

    Wow, that’s a very interesting shade and it really suits you!
