The 7 Day Lipstick Challenge - Day 2

Welcome to, Day 2! I remember when I first discovered this shade. I was shopping at Mecca and the girl that I was speaking to had this lipstick on her lips. Of course, I had to ask her what she was wearing and she said it was Bobbi Brown Rich Lip Colour #35 Blazing Red  (RRP $44 AUD). When she showed me the tester and I swatched it, I was already preparing myself to not fall in love with it, you know that's a lie. It is such a vibrant and strong beautiful fire engine red. The name speaks for itself, it truly is a 'blazing red ' shade. It has a slight undertone of orange to it, which is what makes it so bright and stand out. I love how light weight it feels on the lips. The formula is extremely rich in pigment, smooth and has a creamy texture. It applies really well on the lips and has good longevity, although it can smear if you — kiss, eat, rub your lips, etc. I find applying it with one layer and afterwards using a dabbing motion makes it transfer on the lips perfectly.

I don't own many Bobbi Brown lipsticks, in my collection I have two (I think?). They are beautiful quality lipsticks and I do highly recommend them. I don't find it has any scent to the lipstick — which is a nice change from the overly powering scents some lipsticks can have. This isn't a shade I tend to go for often, even on nights out. Sometimes I hesitate to wear a shade like this if I am going out — mainly for dinner. As it is high maintenance and can smudge if you're not careful, due to it not being a full matte formula.

If I wear a lip liner, lip primer or blot the lipstick it has a better staying power. I did however, wear this lipstick all day and night (with the occasional touch ups), and it made me feel like a million dollars! It just adds that nice touch to your look — especially paired with a bold winged eyeliner. I received a few compliments on how beautiful the shade is. There's something real special about wearing a bold red lip that makes you feel quite lovely, and a wee bit fancy too. It fades after a few hours and leaves a nice stain on the lips. Now that I've tried the lipstick on its own, I want to try and wear this shade a lot more often, this time paired with a lip liner/primer so I feel a lot more confident in its longevity.
