Lately my favored lip color has been Bobbi Brown's Lip Color in Pale Mauve. It was recommended by my aunt as a good lip color for pairing with smoky eyes, and I couldn't agree more. As the weather gets cooler, I find myself reaching for cooler colors.
Bobbi Brown Pale Mauve Lip color is a light slightly cooler pink. I see it as more of a pink than a mauve. However, the hints of mauve make it more wearable. You can see that my swatch of Pale Mauve is cooler, pinker, and lighter than the swatches of Bobbi Brown Blondie Pink lip color, Bobbi Brown Lilac Rich Lip color, and MAC Shy girl. I was surprised since I'd always considered Bobbi Brown Lilac to be the coolest lightest pink in my stash. Bobbi Brown Pale Mauve is one of the paler colors in Bobbi Brown's lip color range. I find that Bobbi Brown's lightest lip colors are more wearable for me. Many of her lip colors are a bit dark for me.
Bobbi Brown Pale Mauve lip color is very well pigmented, like most Bobbi Brown lip colors. The formula is not moisturizing, however I don't find it to be too drying. The color lasts well.
Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoyed my brief review of Bobbi Brown Pale Mauve. It was a gift from my mom. (Thanks mom!) When fall and winter roll around, I find that I prefer cooler colors like this for everyday use. I don't really find myself reaching for richer darker tones that are more typical of the season. However, now that I have thought of this, I'll try to incorporate darker tones into my rotation as well. Have any of your lip color habits changed now that it's fall?
P.S. I just got back from a very short trip, so I'm finally getting around to reading comments on my last post now =) I'll post a couple pictures from my travels later this week!
