After getting a Guerlain tinted lip balm from their upcoming autumn collection and being hugely disappointed with it, I went to a Bobbi Brown counter to get my favourite pot rouge and a red lipstick.
I like trying new products from well-established brands because I think it makes sense to improve an old formula as the cosmetics "science" advances. However it was totally not the case with Guerlain this time. The lip balm was not moisturizing, actually it was drying. The colour (Chic pink) was somewhat dull. However, the packaging was beautiful, a slightly pearly white.
So, I got a Bobbi Brown lipstick in red and a pot rouge in powder pink, a light (but not pale) warm beige-y/pink. I prefer to use pot rouge on my cheeks, it looks so fresh and pretty. Powder pink is lighter than my lip colour, it's also not the most hydrating product on the market (more hydrating than the Guerlain balm!).
Even though I promised to myself not to get any more Burt's Bees lip balms, I had to get it again to get rid of the dryness caused by the Guerlain balm.
Overall, I enjoy these products. I would recommend Bobbi Brown lip colour to anyone.
